Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE-------------FIREFOX by Craig Thomas. "Firefox" is the code name for a new breed of Russian fighter, a plane that's invisible to radar, outruns missiles, and wields an arsenal guided by the pilot's thoughts. With nothing remotely capable of matching the super-jet on their drawing boards, British and American spymasters hit on a seemingly impossible, virtually suicidal plan: send one of their pilots into Russia - into the Russians' high-security flight-test center - to find the super plane, and steal it. Complicating things is Mitchell Gant, the West's designated skyjacker, a burned-out Viet Nam vet who test flew captured Russian planes for the CIA. Scarred within after being shot down, Gant plods on, begging to be discovered and put out of his misery. Thomas' crisp prose, an almost constant state of tension, and supersonic pacing put "Firefox" ahead of just about any other aviation techno-thriller. Best of all are the flying scenes. While other writers boast of being able to put the reader inside the cockpit of a high-performance fighter - only Thomas delivers. Unlike other authors, Thomas knows the tension, stark terror and gallons of adrenaline that a fighter pilot can be expected to go through while trapped in a dogfight. Then there's Thomas' hero - Gant. Thomas' conceit is that Gant's superiors were so ready to see their case fail, that they chose the one man least capable of pulling it off. Gant is unlike any techno-thriller character you've ever read about - he begins the novel trapped in a chronic nervous breakdown. Yet he excels over the cardboard characters of other books who just push buttons and read computer screens. Those characters just register information - Gant actually experiences it as real people would. This is probably the best air-war thriller you'll read. Sequels included "Firefox Down", "Winterhawk" and "A Different War". THIS IS THE BASIS FOR THE HIT MOVIE STARRING CLINT EASTWOOD! You are bidding on the stated Bantam Edition from June 1982.
