The new novel of breathtaking action and adventure in the skies from the bestselling author of Storming Heaven and Flight of the Old Dog.
The spectacular flying scenes, technological detail and astonishing authenticity of international bestsellers such as Flight of the Old Dog, Chains of Command and Storming Heaven have won ex-pilot Dale Brown a place at the leading edge of modern military thriller writing.
Now, in his first novel for two years, he brings back one of his most popular characters, Patrick McLanahan, at the controls of his state-of-the-art B-2 stealth bomber - in a heart-stopping tale of contemporary conflict. With Iran throwing its weight around the Persian Gulf, his latest mission, as part of a top secret CIA flying unit, is to find Iran's key military, industrial and command centres, and destroy them: quickly, secretly, untraceably - the ultimate stealth attack.
`Like the technothrillers of Tom Clancy, Stephen Coonts and Larry Bond, the novels of Dale Brown brim with action, sophisticated weaponry and political intrigue. Far from just another technothriller, Shadows of Steel is a pulse-pounding novel of the near future.'
