"When the stock markets crash and the U.S. economy falls into a crippling recession, everything changes for newly elected president Kenneth Phoenix. Politically exhausted from a bruising and divisive election, Phoenix must order a series of massive tax cuts and wipe out entire cabinet-level departments to reduce government spending. With reductions in education and transportation, an incapacitated National Guard, and the loss of public safety budgets, entire communities of armed citizens band together for survival and mutual protection. Against this dismal backdrop, a SWAT team is ambushed and radioactive materials are stolen by a group calling themselves the Knights of the True Republic. Is the battle against the government about to be taken to a new and deadlier level? In this time of crisis, a citizen organization rises to the task of protecting their fellow countrymen: the Civil Air Patrol (CAP), the U.S. Air Force auxiliary. The Nevada Wing{u2014}led by retired Air Force Lieutenant-General Patrick McLanahan, his son, Bradley, and other volunteers{u2014}uses their military skills in the sky and on the ground to hunt down violent terrorists. But how will Patrick respond when extremists launch a catastrophic dirty bomb attack in Reno, spreading radiological fallout for miles? And when Bradley is caught in a deadly double-cross that jeopardizes the CAP, Patrick will have to fight to find out where his friends' loyalties lie: Are they with him and the CAP or with the terrorists?

The details really bring realism to Dale Brown's intense storytelling.

Very Bad Plot. Fragmented and Loose.

He's puting a book a year out like a Ford assembly line. Loads with too much tech like he's prepping a student for his pilots license. Takes the reader away from the main theme.

Too much details about flight checks and cockpit switches for my taste. Though story was about civil unrest when militiamen turned against the government when USA economy was in deep recession, vast majority of the time centered on the daily lifes of one ex-general hero of a father and his 18 year old son. With little explanation, the father and son collected enemies in CIA, FBI, military and anarchists. Skip - skip - skip unless you are nuts about flying those private planes.

As usual Dale Brown presents a rip roaring tale. Great read!
