Gordon Kent, the pseudonym of a father-and-son writing team, both of whom have served in the U.S. Navy, brings back Alan Craik in this second tour de force of a thriller. This time, Alan has just returned from sea duty and is stuck behind a desk in the Pentagon. When he learns that his best friend, a CIA agent, has been kidnapped in central Africa--just as Rwanda is about to be engulfed in violence--he doesn't need an excuse to set out on a rescue mission. After flying out to join a Mediterranean-bound U.S. fleet that is covering the growing Africa crisis, he soon finds himself stranded, along with his wounded friend, in the middle of the continent as war rages all around. Taking the reader on a roller-coaster ride--from a nighttime helicopter raid in snow-covered Bosnia, to a wing-and-a-prayer flight in a single-engine plane over the African jungle, and a marathon mission on board a Navy jet--this multilayered tale of betrayal, conspiracy, and modern espionage confirms Gordon Kent as a major new voice in contemporary military suspense writing.
