Publisher's Summary

A single pilot can fly the US Air Force's powerful fighter plane, DreamStar - and he's a KGB mole. Captain Kenneth Francis James - a.k.a. Andrei Maraklov - has been ordered to steal DreamStar, an XF-34 fighter that has the frightening ability to respond to its pilot's thoughts and issue its own commands. It's up to Lieutenant Colonel Patrick McLanahan - the hero of Dale Brown's earlier thriller, Flight of the Old Dog - to remove the DreamStar threat. McLanahan and his Air Force compatriots take up the challenge using a modified F-15E called Cheetah, which is designed to capture or destroy DreamStar. Read by actor Joseph Campanella, this nail-biting thriller is high-tech suspense at its best.

    "Really?"

    Notwithstanding the idea of Soviets in Nicaragua (Monroe doctrine), implausible behavior of world leaders, and unreal defector flip-flop, this was a pretty good sci-fi book. It was a short listen purports development of a thought controlled fighter airplane. What an idea.

    "INCOMPLETE STORY"

    First audiobook I've ever heard.
    Compared it with my hard copy and it lacks some parts it's like a new version.
    Not nice.
    Now I'm worried since I've also bought Moss' 'Fear the Sky' hope that one'll be complete.

    Recommend to buy the book.

    Story
    "Good Dale Brown Adventure"
    What did you like best about Day of the Cheetah? What did you like least?

    The story was a fun adventure and well paced. The reader was horrible. His voices were inconsistent and uncomfortable to listen to.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Better reader. Offer unabridged version. I really don't like abridged books.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Joseph Campanella’s performances?

    Never.


    Could you see Day of the Cheetah being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes. Mark Valley as Patrick.
