Jack "Rattler" Owen is a Navy pilot on a combat deployment struggling with life at sea. If dealing with separation from his family, the constant grind of shipboard life and malfunctions in the E-2C Hawkeye weren't enough, it now seems that someone is out to get him. As he tries to navigate his time on the aircraft carrier he realizes that things are not adding up in his squadron. Rattler is faced with having to choose the safe path or the path that could end his career or even his life to expose the leadership that is willing to stop at nothing to benefit their own agenda.
Great book, hard to put down!
Lots of fun to read. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
Treason Flight tells the action-packed story of a young Navy pilot during his first tour as a junior Officer. The day to day life, the thrilling and unexpected moments, and the depiction of the brotherhood found within Naval Aviation is very well-written by someone who has lived it. For those who haven’t deployed aboard an aircraft carrier, the author does a great job of transporting you there and paints the picture as vividly as if you were the one on the flight deck watching the events unfold. It’s a fast-paced read that weaves the daily life aboard a modern warship with a more mysterious story involving unknown crew members. Had a hard time putting it down, would highly recommend for a mystery tied in with the adrenaline filled world of Naval Aviation.
