Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When China launches its first successful test of its Dong Feng-21D antiship ballistic missile, it imperils American military superiority. Can the United States, in the wake of an economic recession and decreased military spending, compete with China?

Retired U.S. Air Force Lieutenant General Patrick Mc-Lanahan reasons that the U.S. can afford to refurbish old but potent long-range bombers to promote the AirSea Battle strategy. President Kenneth Phoenix commissions McLanahan to lead this effort, and soon America stands ready to deploy a task force in the South China Sea. The People's Liberation Army recognizes this growing air threat and aggressively attacks its neighbors, hoping to convince the U.S. Navy to stay away. But McLanahan is finally given the green light to challenge the Chinese threat head on.

With Tiger's Claw, Dale Brown brings to life a thrilling and dramatic story that is right out of what could be the headlines of the not-so-distant future.

Synopsis:

Former Air Force captain and New York Times bestselling author Dale Brown is an acknowledged master when it comes to bringing military action to breathtaking life and he has received glowing accolades since his debut publication, Flight of the Old Dog.

Tigers Claw proves once again that every rave has been well deserved. Set in the near future, Tigers Claw imagines a scenario in which tensions escalate between an economically powerful China and a United States weakened by a massive economic downfall, bringing the two superpowers to the brink of total destruction. Browns popular protagonist, retired Air Force lieutenant-general Patrick McLanahan (of A Time for Patriots, Rogue Forces, and other Brown bestsellers), is back and preparing for the impending apocalyptic clash of men and military technology.

The incomparable Dale Brown scores again with a frighteningly possible story of war and global politics thats ideal for fans of Vince Flynn and Brad Thor.
