    This is the story of the first airline pilot ever arrested and sent to prison for flying under the influence. He was fired by his airline, stripped of his FAA licenses, tried, convicted, and sent to federal prison. Lyle Prouse came from a WWII housing project in Kansas and a family where both parents died as a result of alcoholism. He rose through the ranks of the United States Marine Corps from private to captain, from an infantryman to a fighter pilot. He made his way to the pinnacle of commercial aviation, airline captain, and then lost it all.

    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.
