When a leased Boeing 727 is violently hijacked from Angola and flown to parts unknown, the President turns to an outsider—Major Carlos Guillermo Castillo—for answers. A pilot, West Point graduate, and veteran of Desert Storm, Castillo has a sharp eye for the facts—and the truth behind them. In Africa, he is helped and hindered by unexpected allies and ruthless enemies, and begins to untangle a plot of horrific dimensions—a plot that, unless Castillo acts quickly, will end very, very badly.

Commodore Arthur Laner and the crew of Peregrine have driven the remnants of the Ja-jee invasion fleet from the Brasilia star system, but it has been a pyrrhic victory. The missile carrier fleet and Swarm fleet are gone. Brasilia is smashed. And the Ja-gee will be back, worse than ever before. Laner and Peregrine must rescue survivors, establish a new base, make salvage into starships, and train the battle groups that will carry the fight to the Ja-gee. That would have been too much as it is. But unlocking the secrets of a captured Ja-gee juggernaught poses more questions than it answers. Assassins wait around every corner. Nepotism puts incompetent officers in critical posts. And the Ja-gee are making their own preparations. Can Humanity survive, or is Laner just delaying the inevitable?
