Publisher's Summary

When a nuclear-empowered Iran begins throwing its weight around the Persian Gulf, the U.S. uneasily stands by, its military weakened by years of budget cuts and unpopular, inconclusive police actions. But the new President realizes there is one weapon he can use: the newest secret cell of the CIA's Intelligence Support Agency, code-named Future Flight. Armed with speed, skill, and a B-2 Spirit stealth bomber, the men and women of Future Flight set out to find Iran's key military, industrial, and command centers and destroy them - quickly, quietly, and untraceably. The team begins its mission brilliantly, but Iran and its allies soon take their war of intimidation further than anyone ever expected. With the Persian Gulf tottering and the situation escalating hourly, only Future Flight and its B-2 brethren can prevent a worldwide catastrophe.

Tactical and Detailed

Enjoyable, though tactical/detailed, reading that contains multiple scenes of switch position description. The plot involves a maniac Iranian who stirs up action in the region and is quelled by our hero McLanahan flying a modified B-2 that does weird stuff. The characters include some Iranians, portrayed in a childlike manner, as well as some of the US leadership...portrayed the same way. The author continues his tradition of weak characters and very tactical discussions of fantasy military hardware.
