Kill The Blackbird

"His characters burst into vivid reality so quickly that I was completely absorbed in this spellbinding novel about a critical point in the World's history."

"This book is fast...great pace...very visual...it'll be a great movie."

Description
In the midst of listening to Elvis Presley's rock and roll and the soulful tunes of Ray Charles, Americans in 1962 must deal with the grim possibility of nuclear war. Fear hovers across the land, especially when President John F. Kennedy advises the nation to build bomb shelters and stockpile food.

Known only to a few is the highly experimental American surveillance aircraft, the Blackbird. In order to protect the country, despite the uncertainty of the Blackbird's capabilities and the dangerous location of its destination, the American Security Council commits U.S. spy pilot Paul Hammond to fly the Blackbird and penetrate Russia's Iron Curtain. Caught in between is Rachel Cummins a Washington insider who is actually Oksana Pavlodar--a Russian spy.

To trump the Americans, the Soviets have a secret defense, one they're willing to use even if it means a nuclear clash with the Unites States. It's up to Hammond to break through their defenses and save the world from nuclear holocaust.
