Format: Mass Market Paperback
Scorpion Strike may start off a little slow, but a few chapters in, the action picks up its pace to the point where you cannot put it down. I turned the pages of this book very quickly, wanting to see what the next event would be. The flight scenes are very realistic and full of technical details that a reader educated in aviation would enjoy, but still understandable for readers that don't know aviation jargon. I recommend this book to anybody.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Scorpion Strike is the first book I have read by John Nance, but it will certainly not be the last. As one of the foremost experts on avaition safety in the world (you always see him interviewed on Seattle TV after a major airline accident) Mr. Nance does a brilliant job of detailing all aspects of aviation. Not being an airplane enthusiast like the author , I did get a little lost with some of the terminology. But even then I never lost the sense of suspence and desperation the characters felt as they carry out there mission. Though probably a little too technical for the casual reader, this book has all the makings of a NY Times bestseller.
