From Publishers Weekly Ing ( Blood of Eagles ) constructs this techno-thriller around a low-performance aircraft built from materials giving almost no radar signature.Dragon Tears Textbook "Black Stealth One" is an ideal intelligence-gathering aircraft, and is equally desirable to the U.S.S.R. American intelligence proposes to guard the secret of Black Stealth's true value by letting the Soviets buy the plane from a defector, in reality palming off an earlier, inferior version. The plan goes awry when the real Black Stealth is stolen by a rogue U.S. agent with a grudge. Ing's combination of ultralight and stealth technologies is convincing. His plot development, however, fails to integrate characters and situation into a coherent story. An unlikely and uninteresting May-September romance between the thief and his female hostage dominates much of the novel, and the ending, while clever, does not develop from the body of the book. 100,000 first printing; $100,000 ad/promo.

Made of filament and ceramic, invisible to radar. Able to change color to mimic the background against which it flies. The most advanced, stealthiest bird in the world. And it has been stolen from the National Security Agency hangar. Ing's thriller is a heady mixture of spy story and romance. Petra, the young and beautiful engineer held hostage by Black Stealth One's captor, uses her wits as well as her charm to survive and attempt to escape. Both American spy-masters and their Soviet counterparts attempt to locate, then to snare this amazing trophy. The novel is tightly plotted with interesting and attractive characters. In a season crammed with technothrillers, Ing ( Blood of Eagles) reminds us of the poetry and joy of flight, which give this subject its enduring fascination. For public libraries everywhere.- Elsa Pendleton, Computer Sciences Corp., Ridgecrest, Cal.Copyright 1989 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
