Dale Brown has written thirteen consecutive bestselling novels, but nothing that compares with the drama of Wings of Fire. Ostracized by the government, the military, even his own family, Air Force general Patrick McClanahan is near the end of his rope. And it's about to get worse.

North Africa is in turmoil. The new Libyan president has assassinated the new Egyptian president, and the latter's widow, Makta Salaam, vows revenge. Enlisting McClanahan's high-tech help, she survives an assassination attempt, takes over the Egyptian government, seduces and then kills the Libyan president, and all but proclaims herself queen of Arab North Africa. It's when she invades the Gaza Strip and proclaims it part of her empire that she goes too far. Both Syria and Israel go on alert, and it is only through the intervention of his fellow Night Stalkers that McClanahan wrests himself from under her spell. But is it too late? Salaam still has a few tricks up her sleeve, and she has saved the deadliest for last. . . .

Filled with meticulous authenticity and exceptional storytelling, Wings of Fire is Dale Brown at his best.

North Africa is in turmoil. The new Libyan president has had the new Egyptian president assassinated, and the latter's widow, Susan Salaam, vows revenge. Enlisting the high-tech help of McClanahan and his Night Stalkers, she survives an assassination attempt, assumes control of the Egyptian government, outmaneuvers the Libyan president, and all but proclaims herself queen of Arab North Africa. But the Libyans, and their scheming secret allies, are not done yet. They hold a trump card - one with a deeply personal meaning for McClanahan - and it may be one that will leave even the Night Stalkers powerless.
