How do you capture the fastest airplane in the world without anyone finding out? Concealed deep within China's inland borders is one of the most classified airplanes ever flown, known as Devil Dragon. She's sleek, unbelievably fast, and mysterious-her test pilots have one mission in mind: make her test flights successful for operational use as soon as possible. When strange transmissions of pilots are recorded without an aircraft appearing on radar, and bizarre cell phone signals are detected at towers hundreds of miles apart, the intelligence community team is set in motion. Soon, U.S. Air Force Reserve pilot Ford Stevens is asked to take on the most dangerous assignment of his life. Against an atmosphere of Washington, DC government red tape, an intimidating Chinese General, DIA leadership, and carrier aviation, all airways lead to a stunning international plot. Crammed with deceitful government employees, smoke and mirrors tradecraft, and the blackest, most secretive aviation flight ever undertaken, you will be unable to put it down.
