WHOOOOEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!! March 30 1997
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is such a marvelous book, even though I read it over three years ago! A B-2 stealth bomber is hijacked and the U.S. strikes back! It has some excellant narrative and some of the most intense dogfight and action scenes I've read

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.

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.

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.
Very good Nov. 21 2013

If you like fighter aircraft novels, Joe Weber's books are written for you. Very entertaining and hard to put down. He needs to hurry up and publish some more books.
