Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This Vietnam-era techno-thriller, a sequel to Rules of Engagement , takes hotshot Marine pilot Brad Austin and his Navy buddy Nick Palmer into the shadowy world of clandestine operations. After obtaining a MiG-17, the standard fighter plane of the North Vietnamese air force, the CIA recruits Austin and Palmer to fly the aircraft against its counterparts from a secret base in the heart of Laos. Weber takes a plot premise reminiscent of the aviation pulp novels of the 1920s and does it full justice in a story whose fast pace and exciting action outweigh implausibilities in the plot. He highlights the practical difficulties facing a rogue aircraft in a high-intensity combat environment as both sides target the MiG for destruction. Genre fans will also appreciate Weber's knowledgeable re-creation of the pilot's perspective on the MiG-17's capacities as a warplane. A first-rate air-combat adventure by a master of the genre.

From Library Journal

Some writers get better with age: Weber is among them. His earlier technothrillers such as Defcon One ( LJ 9/15/89) demonstrated his excellent mastery of the intricate subject matter, but in his latest work Weber has brought his writing up to par with his plots and authenticity. Set in the Vietnam War, the novel concerns a U. S. Marine Corps aviator who is recruited for a bold plan by the CIA: to use a captured North Vietnamese Mig-17 to infiltrate the North Vietnam Air Force. Once in Vietnam, the American pilot, Austin, is thrust into a more complicated and dangerous assignment than he bargained for. Threats come from all angles, including his own side. This novel will have great appeal for technothriller and military-fiction buffs, especially for those who love aviation. It is highly recommended for public libraries.
