In this Stewart book, a US superjet fighter names Ares after the Greek god of war, is stolen right under the noses of the high level military, the United States President, and several international dignitaries during a demonstration of its powers! Because of its super stealth and far reaching destructive powers, the United States must solve the mystery what pilot knew how to even fly it and therefore be able to steal it, and then to bring it down.

What a great techno thriller. I really enjoyed the twists and turns this book takes. It seems like a run of the mill "middle east terrorist going to attack the U.S." type book but turns out to be so much more. Stewart highlights the real threat our Nation faces...
The great thing about most of Stewart's novels is that they could happen today.
My wife didn't care for a lot of the technical aspects that abound but for me that is why I love techno thrillers. The images Stewart paints are so real you

This was much better than The Fourth War in my opinion, but I still would have loved a little more to the love interest part of the story. I think I'm ready to move on from Chris Stewart books because with the Great and Terrible series aside, the others have turned out to be a similar theme- middle East at odds against the US and catastrophic in betweens with too much techno and too little mushy stuff.

I actually couldn't finish it. It was way too slow for me. Too much detail and not enough story to hold me.

This book is about an advance fighter jet stolen for revenge. The technical and lethal abilities of this fighter is very worrisome.

Good military, flighter plane mystery, it was a somewhat of a thriller but it did hold my interest to the very end.
