Praise
  • "Suspense, drama, and action as hot as a fighter jet's afterburner, Carroll's account of modern naval aviation reads like Top Gun on steroids...Speaks volumes about military careerism, aviation technology, naval operations in harm's way, and the men who fly and fight for a living." —Publishers Weekly
  • "Tom Clancy meets Joseph Heller in this riveting, irreverent portrait of the fighter pilots of today's Navy. At last somebody got it right. I couldn't put it down." —Stephen Coonts
