Publisher's Summary

A single pilot can fly the US Air Force's powerful fighter plane, DreamStar - and he's a KGB mole. Captain Kenneth Francis James - a.k.a. Andrei Maraklov - has been ordered to steal DreamStar, an XF-34 fighter that has the frightening ability to respond to its pilot's thoughts and issue its own commands. It's up to Lieutenant Colonel Patrick McLanahan - the hero of Dale Brown's earlier thriller, Flight of the Old Dog - to remove the DreamStar threat. McLanahan and his Air Force compatriots take up the challenge using a modified F-15E called Cheetah, which is designed to capture or destroy DreamStar. Read by actor Joseph Campanella, this nail-biting thriller is high-tech suspense at its best.

Notwithstanding the idea of Soviets in Nicaragua (Monroe doctrine), implausible behavior of world leaders, and unreal defector flip-flop, this was a pretty good sci-fi book. It was a short listen purports development of a thought controlled fighter airplane. What an idea.

First audiobook I've ever heard.
Compared it with my hard copy and it lacks some parts it's like a new version.
Not nice.
Now I'm worried since I've also bought Moss' 'Fear the Sky' hope that one'll be complete.

Recommend to buy the book.
