Publisher's Summary

How do you capture the fastest airplane in the world without anyone finding out?
Concealed deep within China's inland borders is one of the most secret airplanes ever flown, known as Devil Dragon. She's sleek, unbelievably fast, and mysterious - her test pilots have one mission in mind: make her test flights successful for operational use as soon as possible. Or sooner.
But when strange transmissions of pilots are recorded without an aircraft appearing on radar and bizarre cell phone signals are detected at towers hundreds of miles apart, the intelligence community team is set in motion, and US Air Force Reserve pilot Ford Stevens is asked to take on the most dangerous assignment of his life.
What begins as a friend helping a friend explodes into a globe-trotting action packed military-aviation adventure. Against an atmosphere of Washington, DC government red tape, an intimidating Chinese general, DIA leadership, and carrier aviation, all airways lead to a stunning international plot. Crammed with deceitful government employees, smoke and mirrors tradecraft, and the blackest, most secretive aviation flight ever undertaken, you will be unable to stop listening.

Book seems written by an amateur writer.

The plot is too easy to guess the ending & the method of writing includes too many repetitive sentences, i.e. "...Ford said." "Ford said.", etc. The author would have had better language flow if they had used more transitional phrases, and modifiers. Another issue was the narrator was reading in a voice that sounded very stilted when changing from first-person voice to narrative voice. He sounded similar to "...he...ask..ed" Consequently, the narrator has a very robotic style of ending a sentence spoken by a character in the story. This book may have been a better purchase had it been read by a more fluid narrator or written with a more flowing style, i.e. Tom Clancy style of writing.

OUCH! This was a hard one to<br />get through.

Narrator wasn't as into it as much have as he could have been. He sounded like he was reading a restaurant menu and why did he have to chuckle whenever he spoke. Sounds like it was narrated by Katherine Hepburn. The story lacked fluidity and was somewhat disjointed. It's not bad, but could have been more enjoyable. The story seems as though someone gathered a bunch of tech info and tried to find a way to work it into a book. I appreciate the time it took write. I'm not an author and couldn't be one of I tried, but I know a weak story. This one lacked an real feel for plausibility or reality. It had too much filler and not enough plot depth. The characters were superficial with shallow dialog. It is a story written by someone that the depth of knowledge about his subject matter. I will listen to this authors next offering. I just hope that he is able to grow the characters and pay more attention to the story cohesiveness.
