Lieutenant Dan Fancy is a top Navy pilot. He has just been reassigned to Miramar Naval Air Station, "Fighter Town", where he hopes to make a fresh start and jump start his career. A failed marriage and a bout of heavy drinking have put him seriously off track. Life at Miramar begins auspiciously as Fancy is reunited with old friends. He begins to prove himself when plunged into rigorous training before Enterprise's six month deployment to the Western Pacific. However, when Fancy meets Cody Thorn and her daughter Amanda, things take a turn he wasn't counting on. The story gives readers a rare glimpse of life on an aircraft carrier, illuminating the lives the men who fly the dangerous missions from the massive floating airfields. Fancy must not only perform under the normal stresses of flying off a carrier, but he must also do so under intense emotional stress when he learns that Cody has been seriously injured by her ex-husband. Unable to be at Cody's side, the situation is a haunting reminder of the events that cost him his first marriage. Fancy must continue to focus on his duties without allowing his personal anxieties to interfere with the demanding tasks before him.
