Synopsis

When a leased Boeing 727 is violently hijacked from Angola and flown to parts unknown, the President turns to an outsider--Major Carlos Guillermo Castillo--for answers. A pilot, West Point graduate, and veteran of Desert Storm, Castillo has a sharp eye for the facts--and the truth behind them. In Africa, he is helped and hindered by unexpected allies and ruthless enemies, and begins to untangle a plot of horrific dimensions--a plot that, unless Castillo acts quickly, will end very, very badly.

Griffin's 35th title abandons his five ongoing series, perhaps the best being his Marine Corps series (Retreat, Hell!, 2004, etc.), which, with a thousand pages published so far, is still mired down in the first year of the Korean War.
