Baker & Taylor
When the world's most advanced supersonic fighter jet is stolen, the U.S., under the leadership of Colonel "Jesse" James, must race against time to retrieve the aircraft before it can be used to ignite global warfare.

Blackwell North Amer
It's meant to be the triumphant debut of the Ares, a U.S. superjet named after the Greek god of war. Outfitted with an ultrapowerful laser, stealth technology, and the ability to easily outmaneuver anything else in the sky, the Ares can strike without warning and escape without a trace - ushering in a new era in war. But when the plane is stolen before a crowd of international dignitaries, the U.S. President and his defense team suddenly find themselves on the wrong end of the Ares' awesome power. In a race to stop his creation from sparking a war between civilizations, the President is forced to rely on hopelessly outdated technology and tactics to bring the Ares down.
It's up to Colonel "Jesse" James to save the world from impending doom. A decorated fighter pilot and chief of the Ares test program, James knows the old tactics and aircraft can't possibly succeed. Worse, he might be the only man who can figure out who really stole the Ares. And why.
Now it's his job to bring the aircraft down. The obstacles, however, are enormous. James faces suspicion from the President's chief advisor, a romantic interest with links to a terrorist network, and a terror plot that seems both too obvious, and potentially devastating, to be true.
