Patriots is a miracle of suspense, a mined labyrinth of electrifying politics, terror, and philosophy, which will rank with the classics of storytelling. -Richard Condon, author of The Manchurian Candidate As dawn breaks on Veterans Day, the American president grapples with the responses-both good and bad-to the announcement of his post-Cold War disarmament initiative, a plan based on nuclear deterrence and reduced troop strength. From an airfield in New York, a Vietnam War hero takes to the skies in a stolen fighter jet armed with Patriot missiles, setting course for Cuba. His actions put in motion by coded phrase known only to a select few. And on an air force base in Washington, DC, one intel officer realizes that only she can put together the pieces of a treasonous conspiracy, one in which shocking acts of deception, betrayal, and assassination will plunge the country into chaos-and pit two superpowers against each other in the ultimate showdown . . . In Patriots, Steve Sohmer puts you into the cockpit of a rogue warplane, around the table in the tense White House Situation Room, and into the minds of men and women willing to sacrifice it all for love and loyalty.
