Lieutenant General Robert Blocker races against time to stop a deadly gang of ruthless terrorists who are using large commercial aircraft to bomb unsuspecting targets, including Los Angeles International Airport

Blackwell North Amer
America is under siege.
Henri Cazaux, one of the world's most feared and deadly terrorists, is conducting a campaign of vindication and revenge against the United States. Cazaux, who was abused by American soldiers during an incarceration when he was a teenager in Europe, has waited years for this opportunity. Now, when the United States seems at its most vulnerable, he decides to strike. His method is ingenious in its simplicity: using large commercial aircraft purchased from an airline graveyard wholesaler, Cazaux will deploy bombs out of a modified rear-entry stair on unsuspecting critical targets.
Cazaux's first attack is on a small northern California airport, even as he is fleeing federal authorities who are hot on his trail. But in a stunning turn in the chase, Cazaux heads directly for San Francisco International Airport, where he unleashes an entire cargo of high-impact explosives. The destruction of life and property is enormous, and the panic that ensues reaches all the way to the White House. As the nation watches helplessly in horror, Cazaux launches a second attack, this one against a major overnight shipping company facility in Memphis; the country's express package-delivery systems are all but crippled.
With airports held hostage to Cazaux's pathological whims, and the President's back against the wall, there is only one man who can end the chaos. He is Rear Admiral Ian Hardcastle, known to readers of the author's previous bestselling novel Hammerheads. And Hardcastle, along with Lieutenant Colonel Al "Rattler" Vincenti, is ordered to reestablish security in the skies before there is further political fallout in the White House and the nation. Hardcastle's response to the emergency must be drastic, and it is . . . until Cazaux hits the Dallas/Fort Worth airport, then aims his sights on the biggest target of all - the nation's capital.
The deadly game of cat-and-mouse pitting Hardcastle and Vincenti against Cazaux escalates as Storming Heaven hurtles toward a breathtaking climax over the skies of Washington, D.C. There, through midair dogfights and a skirmish involving Air Force One, readers are nailed to their seats by Brown's sheer storytelling genius.
Storming Heaven is Dale Brown's most brilliant novel yet of military suspense, filled with all the excitement his readers have come to expect. It is a virtuoso performance by the undisputed master of the genre.

I understand Dale Brown is considered a great author, but don't waste your time. Isn't exciting at all.
