Unclipped dust jacket is in near fine condition-just light rubbing, if that, is present. The extremities of the boards are worn and chipped, but the text block is tight and clean, but for spotty soiling to first few pages.
First in Dale Brown's series of books on Very Hi Tech combat, intrigue, and the protagonists battle against "The Establishment".
The author was an air force officer and crafts a realistic plot and storyline based upon plausible premises. Procedures and practices are believable.
You can read any of his books on the theme of high technology armed forces and they link together, from Flight of the Old Dog to the next and the next.
At the beginning of the book, you are quickly brought up to speed on the plot and then hang on to the end. It is like reading a good mystery. The clues are there but you are never sure until the end who are the bad guys, who did so to speak, and who are the heroes.
The end of each book sets a hook to the next of the books.
