General Patrick McLanahan returns in a battle to expose the corruption at the heart of the American government.
General Patrick McLanahan's provocative Aerospace Battle Force has grown in to a fully fledged task force, based in orbit on the Armstrong Space station. However, their successful defeat of the Iranian threat is making people nervous. Apparently under pressure from the Russians, the UN and the liberal press, newly elected President Joseph Gardener cuts their funding and fires McLanahan branding him an obstacle to the peace process. What the public doesn't know is that Gardener is being blackmailed by the Russians who hold damning evidence of his adulterous relationships and other scandals.
With the ABF decommissioned the Russians begin to amass troops around Iran and the Persian Gulf. McLanahan, going against orders, attacks the Russian forces and delays their attack. He warns the Russians that he will act unilaterally to stop them advancing in the Persian Gulf.
Though the President, furious with his behaviour, has ordered his arrest, McLanahan is virtually untouchable and he knows it. Located on one of the most secure bases ever built, in command of an arsenal of the most sophisticated air weapons in the world, even the Marines and the FBI cannot touch him - for now. McLanahan, up against his own countrymen and an army of aggressive Russians must struggle to clear his name and expose the President's corruption

Praise for Dale Brown:
‘Clancy’s got serious company.’
New York Daily News
‘When a former pilot with years of experience turns his hand to writing thrillers you can take their authenticity for granted. His writing is exceptional and the dialogue, plots and characters are first-class…far too good to be missed.’
‘Brown puts us into the cockpits of wonderful machines and gives us quite a ride. His flying sequences are terrific…authentic and gripping.’
New York Times Book Review
‘The best military adventure writer in the country.’
Dale Brown was a much decorated US Air Force Captain aboard B-52s and FB111 fighter bombers, and participated in numerous top secret tests and exercises held to simulate an actual strategic war. He became a recognised expert on air warfare and appeared on American TV as a commentator during the Gulf War.
Only a man with Dale Brown’s background could provide the detailed authenticity that makes his novels such compulsive reading.
