Publisher's Summary

In Desert Storm, Major Daren Mace made a fateful decision to go against orders. To abort a secret mission that was, in his judgment, ill advised. His actions landed him in military exile. Now Mace has moved on to the Air Force Reserves. There's a new US president. It's a new era, and a new war is escalating along the Ukraine border. This time Mace has a partner - Rebecca Furness, the military's first woman combat flyer. And this time the chains of command are tightening around him.

The novel introduces future McLanahan saga characters Lieutenant Colonel Darren Mace and Major Rebecca Furness, the USAF's first female combat pilot.

Story is fine; production issues mar experience

Dale Brown is one of my favorite authors, so I'm sure I read this book when it was first published. The audio production had enough problems to make me wish I could remember the story so I didn't have to finish listening. The volume level on key portions of sentences was too low, while much of the narrative was too loud. Mr. Culp, thank you for putting in the time to learn the pronunciation of so many foreign words, names and place names. On your behalf I double-checked the dictionary for the correct (and only) pronunciation of "ally" -- the emphasis is on the first syllable, and that first syllable is the hard "a" sound, not the soft "uh" sound.
