It's not easy being the best. When pilot and artificially intelligent stealth craft merge as one, the possibilities are endless. But when there's a traitor in the squadron, things become a lot more dangerous. David Drake, author of Hammer's Slammers, said of this book: "Vivid glimpses of high-tech hardware, and the black paranoid universe of a military at war." More
Cyberstealth pilots. The best of the breed. The only problem: One's a traitor...
Cargo's a down-and-dirty street kid with a crash-and-burn future—until the Bishop offers him a shot at the stars. A chance to fly a batwing, the ultimate in stealth technology. A ship as much at home at sea level as in deepest space, it is the deadliest flying machine mankind's ever created.
Cargo's the pilot; the alien Ghoster, his eyes. They're the elite, a top-gun team fusing their skills and talents with a machine that knows no limits. It's the dream of a lifetime.
But street rules apply to the stars as well—and even ace jobs don't come free.
First, there's a war to be fought. Then, the death of a friend closer than a brother. And someone in Cargo's squadron is a spy... one who's leaking stealth technology to the enemy.
Cyberstealth... it has its costs.
