The seventh in the series of high-tech thrillers centred on Dreamland - a top-secret USAF weapons research centre - from the acclaimed author of 'Flight Of The Old Dog' and 'Plan Of Attack'.
Dreamland is a cutting-edge weapons research facility in the Nevada desert, home to some of the world's finest pilots and an elite combat unit that operates under the direct command of the US President.
When a small flotilla of high-speed boats begins harassing civilian vessels in the Gulf of Aden below the Red Sea, a special group of experimental warships is tasked to investigate and stop the pirates. The operation is lead by Captain Harold 'Storm' Gale, but the danger is considerably greater than they first envisioned and lives are lost.
Enter Dreamland, with Colonel Tecumseh 'Dog' Bastian at the helm.
Storm is not happy with Dreamland's interference, and in the midst of the oneupmanship, one of Dog's team is killed by the pirates. Suddenly Dreamland is faced with a powerful enemy who intends to cause maximum destruction and maximum pain.
