The cry for help from her estranged brother arrived like a bolt out of the blue.

So did the storm that brought down her F/A-18 Super Hornet.

Lt. Talia “Colt” Levin hasn’t heard from her brother Ben in years, until one day she gets a message from him, begging for her help.

She and her partner, Lt. Justin “Hawk” Halversen, must fly one last mission before they can return home. However, over the Iraq-Iran border their plane hits a storm – and the storm hits right back. Having survived the lightning strike and the plane crash that follows, Colt finds herself deep in enemy territory and faced with a terrible choice. Her co-pilot, Hawk, is severely wounded and unable to walk. Separated by a mudslide, and captured by suspicious villagers, Colt must choose between escaping on her own and rescuing Hawk. The clock’s ticking on her one chance to help her desperate brother.

Can she rescue Hawk and get him to safety in time to save Ben? Or must she abandon the partner who’s always been there for the brother who never was?

Friend or family – who would you choose?

A friend’s missing sister might be the one thing that will blow her off course.

Medically discharged from the Navy after crashing her F/A-18 Super Hornet, Talia “Colt” Levin has given herself three months to kick off her new career as an airline pilot. Nothing’s going to wreck her plans this time. Not even when a friend asks for her help finding his missing sister.

Colt figures it won’t take long to track her down, but quickly discovers that Kendra is only one of several women who have vanished in the past year. After stumbling across an FBI investigation into the disappearances, Colt learns the women have been taken for a far darker purpose.

When yet another woman disappears, Colt must decide if she’s willing to give up her carefully laid plans and dive into a rescue mission. She’s flying in unfamiliar territory, and without Navy backup. She’s used to hunting people through the skies, not the suburbs.

Can Colt save the women without falling victim herself?

Some secrets are best left untold.
