"A first-rate air-combat adventure by a master of the genre." (Publishers Weekly)

Joe Weber follows up his best-selling novel Rules of Engagement with another high-stakes thriller about a secret war and the courage of the men who fought it.

The Vietnam War is at its height, and the US has acquired a Soviet-built MiG-17. Marine aviator Brad Austin has been recruited to test-pilot it. The MiG is an aerial hotrod, crude yet lethally effective. But it's not what Austin is flying, it's where - behind enemy lines, disguised as a Russian pilot. If he succeeds in penetrating the enemy air space, he will find easy prey. But if he fails, he will be disavowed.

With edge-of-your-seat tension and gripping realism, Targets of Opportunity is thriller writing at its best!

"Some writers get better with age: Weber is among them. This novel will have great appeal for technothriller and military-fiction buffs, especially for those who love aviation." (Library Journal)

"Thanks be to the book-writing gods; we have a writer who does what writers are supposed to do - tell a story." (The Wichita Eagle)

A good listen!

I initially hated the narrator change because I listened to Rules of Engagement just prior to this book. The character voices are obviously different, but I got over that & was absorbed into the story! Well written with plenty of action ( I am an action junkie). But this book!
