A footloose Air Force pilot and an unproven Marine Corps commander spearhead an elusive mission to rescue the President of the United States after Air Force One is seized in this action-packed high-tech thriller with “a gripping tale of military professionals doing what they do best” (M. E. Morris, Author of Alpha Bug).
In an act of savage terror, the President of the United State is seized on Air Force One with its location pinpointed to a remote and hostile African country by an American space spy station. With the power to strike any where in the world in under one hour, The Marine Corps Rapid Deployment Force must save the day.
With the help of the RDF’s secret weapon—the Trans-Atmospheric Vehicle flown at 15,000 miles per hour by the Air Force’s most elite pilots, carrying a deadly cargo of highly trained marines—it is up to one footloose Air Force pilot and an unproven Marine Corps commander to catapult their men and machines into the heart of Africa.
Their mission: free the President and get out alive.
