Overview

Launch into the action with this triumphant tale! Pilot Terry Lee has taught Bill Trevillian everything he knows about flying, enough that Bill's know considered the ace of American test pilots just as war breaks out in World War II Europe. Unknown to Bill, Terry's also taught his own kid sister, Kip, who's now almost as good a pilot as Bill and quite the looker to boot.

 When France and Great Britain must choose between different American plane designs to outfly the newest and deadliest Nazi fighters, the competing companies send their two best test pilots . . . Kip and Bill. Unfortunately, a spy also has been sent to infiltrate and sabotage the planes to make sure that neither the French nor British will consider them safe enough to fly. Soon Kip and Bill suspect the other of sabotage- a problem that not only threatens their already electric relationship but their very lives.  "Riveting cliff-hanger action." -Midwest Book Review

Author Details

Hubbard, L. Ron

L. Ron Hubbard's legendary writing career encompassed more than 250 novels, short stories and screenplays in every major genre including 19 New York Times bestsellers.\n\nA seasoned world traveler before attending college where he studied engineering and took one of the earliest courses in molecular phenomena, he went on to achieve renown as a pioneer aviator, master mariner and flag bearing expedition leader of the Explorers Club.

In the 1930s and 1940s, he was a top-line high-production writer for the popular pulp fiction magazines. His stories, many reflecting the diversity of his own life experiences, exuded a sense of realistic adventure with sharply convincing characters and dialogue that brought them vividly alive and attracted a wide readership.

When he entered the field of science fiction, he wrote high-concept stories that were crowded with action and suspense. Along with a handful of other innovatively imaginative writers, he helped lead the way in creating the Golden Age of Science Fiction and laying the foundation for the genre's continuing popularity and entertainment appeal.

Among his bestselling and classic speculative fiction trendsetters are Fear, Final Blackout, Ole Doc Methuselah, and his crowning epics, Battlefield Earth and the Mission Earth series, which together dominated American bestseller lists for 153 weeks.
