From the back cover: There are no coincidences…
When Jason Conrad returned to Vance Air Force Base as a T-38 instructor pilot, he never wanted to leave. For five years, Air Force Captain Jason Conrad flew and instructed in the supersonic T-38. Despite his decline into a self-destructive lifestyle, he was considered one of the best instructors on the base. Following a terrifying jet crash, Jason finds himself on a very short list of people on their way out the door.
It is a surprise to everyone when he is assigned to the home of the U.S. Air Force Flight Test Center. Jason should have known that in a ‘one mistake Air Force’ where you ‘do more with less’, everything would not be what it appears. Attached to a secret project with a shadowy contractor, Jason is caught between two complications; an overbearing, retired general determined to see him fail; and an aggressive television reporter who wants him in prison.
When a ghost from the past shows up and a beautiful, yet mysterious woman enters his life, Jason soon discovers his special project has more secrets than anyone knows about . . . and it could cost him his life.
If you look in the Dictionary under, Suspense-Thriller, this novel is listed. Mr. Lewis has given us quite a character with Jason Conrad, he isn’t your typical hero with quite a few rough edges but, I suppose, that is what makes him interesting. Since the plot revolves around a new jet, there is much about flying and most of the plot takes place at Vance Air Force Base. Then there is the interaction with China. There is deception piled upon deception piled upon deception. On top of everything this is quite an engrossing thriller that will have you muttering “oh, no” as you are reading as fast as you can to get to the next page. Don’t start this book late at night as it will cost you sleep as you will not want to put it down. I am already looking forward to the next book in this series.
