About the book: When Marine Lieutenant Michael Neill is ordered to the former Soviet Union, his assignment is to verify nuclear disarmament. But before his mission begins, he suffers both a personal and professional loss—an American reconnaissance plane is attacked by a Russian fighter, and a Navy pilot is killed. Ironically, the dead airman is Neill’s good friend and former Naval Academy classmate. After the incident, Neill’s mission changes.
The President’s National Security Advisor wants Lieutenant Neill to investigate Russian stealth technology, in addition to his original assignment. Photographic evidence—and the lack of radar images of the attacking aircraft—lead the American intelligence community to conclude that something new has been developed in the skies over Russia. The National Security Advisor believes that Neill’s friendship with a high-ranking officer in the Ukrainian Air Force is the key to establishing Red Sky at Morning—the existence of new aviation technology that could upset the balance of power between East and West.
However, ultra-nationalist forces are at work. After arriving in Eastern Europe, Neill quickly uncovers a conspiracy of terrorism secretly instigated by the Kremlin. Government leaders in Moscow will stop at nothing to rebuild the Soviet Union as they try to force the breakaway republics back into the fold.
Review: Red Sky at Morning by Steve Wilson is a great read. The story is compelling and exciting. The characters are well developed and interesting to become involved with. The writing style is easy and fluid making the book hard to put down as you begin to be drawn in by the drama. There is a good mix of romantic interest as well as lots of excitement and intrigue as the characters evolve and the story line unwinds.
I enjoyed the many different connections between the characters. There is a slight reference to Christian living that I found to be a nice addition to the story. The events, although fictional, contain a strong link to realistic events that could possibly happen. I would highly recommend this book to readers looking for intrigue and excitement.
