General Trusten Polk's F-16 explodes on takeoff in Denver. Within hours he's exposed as an impostor, a war hero politician controlled by others.
As Captain Boyd Chailland, the pilot member of the accident board uncovers Polk's lonely private life he finds another pilot from Polk's past knows all his secrets and is leaking them to the press.
Congressman Roscoe Kelly is tied to bank fraud and other politicians with ties to Polk duck and weave. The press smells blood and government corruption dominates the news cycle. Is The Other Pilot a patriot or a criminal? Where did all that money come from?
Boyd rushes to find The Other Pilot, as signs point to a criminal mastermind with a lust for revenge.
The spark to set off civil war in America is on a ranch in west Texas. Boyd, his English teacher lover, his flight surgeon pal, a vintage aircraft enthusiast with a restored P-51 Mustang, and a small town sheriff are the nation's last line of defense.

"Smart, fun, timely and spooky possible."
The author must have had a fine time with the number of unrelated philosophies and realistic personages involved in the confluence of this story. The chaos and political chicanery was a background of believability within which he manipulated the actions and counteractions of villain and hero alike. I was drawn by the flying and arrested by the inventive and prescient drama and clashes of ideologies and life choices. Well done! Please continue.
