Book Description

August 1991
While Congress debates the merits of continued funding for the Stealth bomber, sinister forces have their own agenda. During a training exercise, a B-2 bomber disappears, apparently hijacked. Recovery of the B-2 and its crew becomes the president's highest priority. Intelligence leads to what at first seems a very unlikely suspect: Cuba. Could the tiny nation pull off a theft of this magnitude? What might its plans be? Getting the answers to these questions becomes the top-secret mission for CIA agent Steve Wickham, for without those answers, only one solution will remain: invasion. And if the US invades, World War III will certainly follow.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

In a techno-thriller set in the near future, Castro declares war on the U.S. after a Stealth bomber hijacked by the KGB is landed in Cuba. Weber "gives readers a firm sense of what it is like to fly against modern air defenses," said PW . "The unsophisticated, two-dimensional characters are less convincing, however."

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner !! Aug. 10 2001
By Thomas Richar - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
After reading Defcon One (Joe Weber's first book), I was hoping that his excellent keep-the-pages-turning writing style would continue with Shadow Flight. I was not disappointed. This book grabs you from page one and immediately you are thrown into the non-stop action. I took the book with me on vacation and caught a little flak (no pun intended) from the kids who wanted me to put the book down to join them in the pool. The action just keeps coming and the ending is great. Can't wait to read the next one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Come "spy" with me Oct. 7 2004
By Kris - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
For non-military people, or non-machine people in general, this book may be a little confusing. On the other hand, if read with an open mind, there is much to learn.

Did I know what a Stealth bomber was? No, I didn't, but now I do, thanks to this book. I also learned a little, as much as I could digest with my limited experience, about the flight controls in such a plane, altitude differentials, the effect of weather conditions, and such. It was an educational experience, in that respect.

The plot was a little dated, in that the KGB was still trying to pull this thing off, hijacking the bomber and recruiting operatives from disgruntled (or puzzy whupped?) citizens of the U.S.

Cuba going to war with the U.S.? The U.S. bombing Cuba? These were more pieces of the plot that lacked a little in credibility, but then who knows?

Another thing that bothers me about all these military-oriented novels, or most of them anyway, is the jumping around among what seems like too many protagonists. It's really hard to keep track of all the people. Maybe these authors could write in the first person sometimes, so that we slow people without military experience could "get with the program" a little better. Diximus.
3.0 out of 5 stars Exciting but unbelievable. Aug. 8 2014

An exciting and captivating book, but a little too fantastic to be "believable". When writing fiction about current or historical events, an author must strive to make the plot seem plausible. Joe Weber is an excellent author, but he missed the mark on this book. When a B-2 bomber is hijacked and flown to a hidden "underground" hanger in Cuba, the plots goes off the track with everyone involved in decision-making from the President of the United States to the Russian leaders and Fidel Castro displaying some of the dumbest mistakes possible. AND in addition to the un-credible plot, the author chooses to use fictitious names for the Russian and American leaders, while using the actual names of the Castro brothers in his story. To me, this is a serious mistake when mixing key-characters between actual and fictitious names.

Cold war mixed with Fox fire in America good read and the Russians in this story are willing to turn over the aircraft after Cuba gets bombed. That sums it up.
