I enjoy aviation novels and this one is presented with a well developed plot and interesting characters. The flying scenes in this adventure/suspense read are well researched and described with technical accuracy and realism. Fiction is best enjoyed when I can exercise my imagination without stretching beyond plausibility. Many of the scenarios in this book take place in the Canadian wilderness, far north of Hudson Bay, and the challenges to flying and surviving are many. As an airline pilot, I overflew this region often and was happy to be at a comfortable flight level and not battling the harsh conditions at lower altitudes. The "what ifs" that go through a pilots mind at those latitudes are the same "what ifs" that make an interesting plot for a novel. I look forward to this author's next book.

Format: Paperback
Once I started reading this novel, I couldn't put it down! The dramatic, action-packed plot kept me guessing the whole time whether Rick and Heather will rescue the scientist, or whether the whole bunch will meet a tragic end. I also really enjoyed the rich descriptive language the author used, which is not too common in today's literature. Plus, it seems to me that the author has done his research and knows what he's talking about when he writes, for example, about weather forecasting or flight operations (although, to be honest, I don't know a whole lot about these things). But most of all, I loved the characters in this book; I loved how willingly they risk their lives to serve their country and to save the lives of their fellow Americans. Their unspoken motto seems to be "All for one, one for all!" I wish more people in real life were like that -- if they were, I'm sure that all our lives would have been a lot better.

Format: Paperback
When Dennis Kitainik came to me to ask me to review his new book, I was honored, to say the least, and cordially obliged. However, once I picked up the paperback, I couldn't put it down. Higher Than an Eagle is a page-turner, and an excellent first effort by author Kitainik. The story moves swiftly as Civil Air Patrol pilot Heather Mallory and her husband, U.S. Army field surgeon Rick Floyd, agree to respond to an emergency at a weather station in the Canadian Arctic. Immediate surgery is needed by one of the weather scientists who makes the wrong decision to fend off a huge polar bear rather than to allow the massive creature the spoils of the day's fishing efforts. But it isn't just getting there to treat the injured man that challenges this American team; it is getting there with the weather against them, as well as the terrain full of "rotten" ice. With two days before choppers can be dispatched, the final decision to save the injured weatherman depends upon Mallory's expert flying of the light twin-engine plane to a reasonable drop point onto the frozen tundra of cracking ice or into the freezing waters . . . only pilot Mallory's skill and bravery will get the rescuers there on time, and in one piece. Can the injured scientist be saved or will the plane fail to reach its destination? Higher Than an Eagle is a Wings of Mercy Novel and I look forward to the sequel. Five stars!
