Publisher's Summary

A war-weary Navy pilot confronts the deadly skies of the South Pacific, training Marine pilots and battling Soviets MiGs in the wake of the Vietnam War. Fighter pilot Jake Grafton is adrift following combat in Vietnam. With no place in the States to call home, Grafton sticks to what he knows best: taking on the world’s most treacherous skies from the cockpit of a Grumman A-6 Intruder. Now, stationed in the South Pacific on the U.S.S. Columbia, Grafton must teach the Marines aboard the art of flying from an aircraft carrier - a mission that, thanks to the unruly Marine Captain Le Beau, is as joyless as it is dangerous.
But when an unexpected enemy appears from above, Grafton and Le Beau must put aside their differences and work together to save the lives of all onboard.

Exciting

Exciting tactical treatment of post Vietnam aircraft carrier operations. Our hero, Lt Jake Grafton, goes on a cruise, worries about his girlfriend, fights pirates and the Soviets while cementing his relationship with a Marine snake-eating bombardier-navigator. Full of Navy jargon, each word well explained. The book is an exciting listen from beginning to end.
