In 1945, just after the German surrender, Major Kaufmann of G-2 Counterintelligence receives disturbing reports: aerial bombs are missing from Italy. German POW Airmen are being transferred to France for no obvious reason. A fleet of B17s disappear without a trace. When Kaufmann tries to follow up, his contacts are murdered before he can reach them, and then the word comes from Eisenhower's office: stop Kaufmann, stop him dead. Can Kaufmann evade the traitors, whoever they are, long enough to stop the world from going into a tailspin?
Told with all Jack Hunter's enormous narrative gifts and proven expertise in military aviation and wartime intelligence, Tailspin is a thriller of the highest order.
"Barrett Whitener gives a secure, distraction-free performance that lets the story speak for itself. His slightly low-key tone is appropriate to the writing. His characters are well defined without becoming caricatures or virtuoso displays." (AudioFile)
