"Two possibilities exist: either we are alone in the universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying." (Arthur C. Clarke)
Book one in the Wings of Steele series, Destination Unknown is an epic science-fiction adventure that reaches from the surface of our familiar planet and the safety of terra firma to the dark, vast expanse of deep space and distant star systems.
Jack Steele is an ex-big-city cop that left the department after losing a friend in the line of duty. Recovering from a tough divorce, he reinvents himself with a love of flying and restructures his life as a pilot for hire. Accompanied by his ever-present German Shepherd, Fritz, Jack will fly almost anything anywhere, shuttling new and used planes for clients all over the world.
He had never been a Boy Scout, but he is a man who likes to stay prepared and in control of whatever life throws at him. But nothing could have prepared Jack and his copilot for how life suddenly goes drastically and violently sideways, in a direction and magnitude that no one could have ever anticipated. Wanted men, it seems, like everyone on the planet, are hunting them, and their only option is to run...but to where?

Story must be written by 12 year old school boy
The narrator is excellent and paces things well.
I might read another Jeffrey J Burger if I was 12 and had never met a real woman in my life.
This book made me cringe whenever there is any interaction between Mr Steele and any woman in the story. You do get the feeling that the author has never met a real woman or is such a male chauvinist that he wishes that he lived in a world where women just fell at his feet no matter how badly they are treated.
Lots of Action, But a Little 'Comic Book-ish"
