Stefan Vučak’s latest military/political thriller!
Ogdan Kostan was prepared to murder to get his 6th generation fighter accepted.
A retired Air Force test pilot, Kostan knew the future of air superiority fighters lay in unmanned remotely controlled vehicles. To prove his theory, he started a company to build luxury jets for the wealthy, a testbed for the F/X-26.
When faced with betrayal by one of his directors and assistant – a case of love spurned – he orders his chief of security to kill them to keep the F/X-26 secret. Completed, Kostan demonstrates the radical fighter to the military, a first vital step to have it accepted by the Pentagon in its submission to Congress. The aerospace lobby launches a campaign to destroy the F/X-26, as it threatens their own programs for the next generation fighter.
Determined to do whatever it takes to push his concept, Kostan blackmails corrupt politicians to counter the aerospace lobby. When the FBI gets involved, life for Kostan suddenly becomes a little more difficult. Will he see his fighter fly?
A novel that explores a person’s drive to succeed at all costs, battling the aerospace lobby and Congressional vested interests.
Readers who enjoy reading Clancy and thrillers with POVs will realize some obsessions pay off in the end.
