When fourteen airplanes fall out of the sky in one day, thousands of American lives are lost - and the world's confidence in America's engineering know-how is badly shaken. And as expert saboteurs continue to strike at our vital industries, hundreds of thousands of American jobs and billions of dollars hang in the balance. Ex-CIA field officer Kirk McGarvey is called upon by the multibillion dollar Guerin Airline Company, one of the nations's major economic juggernauts, to investigate the recent rash of accidents and, ultimately, restore Guerin's international reputation. Intrigue and danger heighten as America faces its worst industrial challenge since the Great Depression. With the Cold War over, Japanese industrial espionage may succeed tomorrow where, fifty years ago, their military might failed.
