“Tom Clancy fans open to a female lead will clamor for more.” - Publishers Weekly
“The best military thriller I’ve read in a very long time. Love the female characters.” – Sheldon McArthur, founder of The Mystery Bookstore, LA
A U.S. Air Force C-130 transport bearing a top secret cargo lies shattered in the Nevada desert at Groom Lake. China’s prototype fifth-generation jet fighter goes missing.
Far above, a U.S. supersonic, stealth drone flies very lethal black ops. The CIA, U.S. military command, and the National Reconnaissance Office are locked in a battle for control of the nation’s future.
Miranda Chase, the National Transportation Safety Board’s air-crash savant, lands in the center of the gathering maelstrom. Burdened with a new team and a polarizing personality, she must connect the pieces to stay alive. And she must do it before the wreckage of her past crashes down upon her and destroys U.S.-China relations forever.

Interesting plot & characters.
I really enjoy the books by ML Buchman & usually give them 5 stars but had to take one off for the ridiculousl dialogue given to one of the characters.Im sorry but the Aussie jingoistic language spoken by Holly was just so wrong.Yes some of those sayings may have been uttered by some Australians years ago but hardly ever uttered now unless as a joke.No self respecting female would dare say Sheila unless it was someone’s name.
Please if you wish to portray Aussies not Ozzies in your stories please speak to someone that can advise you on current Aussie slang & if ML Buchman did then that authority has no idea.
Aside from my rant,obviously I’m Australian,I found this new series well written & thought out.Very much looking forward to book 2.
Exciting start to a new series
I received a free copy of this title from the publisher for an honest review... absolutely amazing start to a new series. Love the edginess of Miranda Chase and I am looking forward to the next book. This book has me hooked from the get go.
