Description
"Flying, spying, dying--Rules of Engagement is the real straight Navy stuff. Better strap yourself to the chair for this one. I loved it." --Stephen Coonts, author of Fortunes of WarRules of Engagement marks the spectacular debut of Gordon Kent, the pseudonym of a father-and-son writing team, both of whom have served in the U.S. Navy. They have crafted a tale with striking authenticity and remarkable psychological depth sure to appeal to the fans of Tom Clancy, Stephen Coonts, and Dale Brown.Shortly before the Gulf War, Alan Craik, a young U.S. Navy Intelligence officer, is posted to one of two aircraft carriers headed toward the Persian Gulf. On board the other is his father. When both take part in a nighttime strike on the Iranian coast, Lt. Craik's father's A-6 is hit and plunges into the sea.Shocked by the loss of this commanding figure in his life, Craik refuses to accept the official explanation that a lucky strike from an Iranian missile has downed the plane. After further investigation his instincts tell him the real story is much more disturbing: someone on his father's ship sabotaged his plane and he's still on board. The hunt becomes increasingly urgent when Craik discovers that the Navy may be harboring not just one traitor, but two: a father-and-son team who have been betraying their country for years. As Craik gets closer and closer to uncovering them, they will risk everything to keep their secrets.
