It's a good short read with fast paced action.
#1 of the Carrier series. A promising start to the saga of naval air power and Carrier Group 14. Compelling characters and action packed aerial battle sequences were the hallmark of the series until the publisher had too many different hands try out the authorship of the series and continuity went to pot.

Carrier series - Carrier Group 14 is moved off the North Korean coast after the North Koreans hijack an American intelligence ship in international waters. Air combat ensues between Migs and F-1

Book completely without substance. The best way to describe the story in this book is to a non-arc episode of a tv series. You know, one of those episodes that has nothing to do with the main story of the season, instead it is a filler episode to give the main characters a break from shooting.

Light on character, heavy on action. If you like fast paced top gun type stories, you'll like it. However, there's no character to really grab on to.
It's a good story and it held my interest. I found myself rooting for the good guys.
Okay read. Ending seemed a little rushed to me.
