Publisher's Summary

Cmdr. Brick Maxwell and his F/A-18 squadron are flying cover for the president of Taiwan's jetliner when it is blown out of the sky. Other than a slight shimmer of light preceding the catastrophe, there's no visible cause for the explosion.

But Maxwell suspects that China has stolen the plans for the Black Star - a virtually invisible super stealth fighter. Now a full-scale war is inevitable - unless Maxwell and a team of commandos can hijack the state-of-the-art killing machine. But with a beautiful defector of dubious loyalties guiding them, the mission can take a wrong turn at any moment.

The Stealth Fighter/Bomber - Made in China!

Where does Black Star rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I listen to audiobooks to take me away on an adventure while I pedal through the Texas heat. This was a great audio journey.

What did you like best about this story?

Stolen stealth technology, an invisible fighter dogfight, Taiwan/China revolutionary war, and the usual Robert Gandt cast of characters--brought to life by narrator Thomas Block. This is another excellent modern warfare adventure on and off the decks of the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Ronald Reagan. Climb aboard, strap in, Hold on tight, and don’t forget your UV goggles.

What about Thomas Block’s performance did you like?

I like the consistency Thomas Block brings to Robert Gandt's series.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

1V1 Stealth v Stealth aerial dogfight.

A fun listen well worth the time

Mr Gandt again delivers an imaginative story in the action aviation genre
I particular rally enjoyed the fighter scenes the description does capture the Realism of dogfighting.
Tom Block is a gifted narrator
