The Soviet Union is no more, the Commonwealth of Independent States is the new Eastern European power block. Lithuania is going for independence but there are still old Soviet forces in the country, controlled by Belorussian nationalists. So far, so good.

Readers may remember Dave Luger, the navigator who sacrificed his life in the first book. Well, he's now a brainwashed Russian scientist building a stealth airplane in Lithuania.

I think this book might as well be skipped. Since this is an interlude to the overall story, no character development happens and I can't imagine that the other books in the series is worse. ( )

1992 Technothriller. It is the sequel to the events of the Flight of the Old Dog in which a crew member - Dr. David Luger - sacrifices himself to save the Old Dog crew...The novel prologue retells part of the events of Flight of the Old Dog from the perspective of crew member David Luger, as he makes the decision to sacrifice himself in order to allow his crewmates to take off from a Soviet airbase and return home. He subsequently awakens in a Soviet military hospital, where Soviet officers have begun plans to brainwash him and make use of his extensive technical knowledge.

Five years later, a special operations mission to rescue a Lithuanian CIA agent/defector recovers a photo of Luger, now brainwashed into working for a Soviet aircraft design bureau under a false identity. USAF Col. Paul White, leader of the CIA extraction team, recognizes Luger, having formerly worked with both him and fellow Old Dog crew member Patrick McLanahan. After receiving no substantive response from the normal chain of command,

This is the second book in the Patrick McLanahan series (Hammerheads takes place before this novel but is officially not part of the series).

The book takes place primarily in Lithuania & Belarus where after the collapse of the United Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) / Союз Советских Социалистических Республик (CCCP). A now ex-KGB officer holds a US prisoner from the first book, David Luger, who is forced to collaborate on aircraft design at a facility in Lithuania. With the collapse of the USSR and Lithuania now an independent democracy with facilities due to be handed back to the country the ex-KGB officer hatches a scheme with a Byelorussian General to invade Lithuania. In the midst of this Patrick McLanahan & a squad of US Marines go in to rescue David Luger. Action ensues.

It's a good fast paced novel with lots of action. Like other Dale Brown books there's a lot of technical and military information but not to the point where it detracts from the story, and not in a manner that is fanciful or absurd.

Highly entertaining. ( )
