When a passenger plane is brought down by a Stinger missile over the east coast of America, RAF pilot Sean Riever is enrolled in a critical Special Forces mission. It is known that the terrorists responsible for the attack have an arsenal of Stingers hidden in the mountains of Afghanistan; these weapons must be recovered at all costs. Nonstop action and adventure in an unusual, harshly beautiful setting.
Another read for me from the Reader's Digest book, not my normal type of reading and I probably wouldn't buy it. Special Forces, terrorists, the 'Goodies' and 'Baddies' are clearly drawn. What I like is that one of the main characters, Amica, is female, Afghani and very feisty, not your usual impression of Afghani women. If you are into this sort of stories, you might enjoy it.
