New Airship Novel: “Wings of Fury”

Wings of Fury is a newly-published suspense novel set on an zeppelin-type airship. Written by R. N. Vick, a pilot and flight instructor from Montana, it is an enjoyable read and a good summer novel for us helium-heads.

From the publisher’s description:

It’s 1933, the golden era of aviation. The Pathfinder is an 800-foot passenger zeppelin. It is the pinnacle of human invention; the largest thing to fly. It has just been hijacked.

A band of modern-day pirates have seized control via fighter planes and poison gas. With the passengers and crew hostage, the pirates are flying the Pathfinder into the heart of South America on a deadly mission.

But among the passengers is a man to be reckoned with. He is Nathan Carter, a mercenary and ace pilot with nothing to lose. After a failed attempt to liberate the Pathfinder, Carter must flee, along with a beautiful pickpocket and a couple of determined crewmen. Escape only lands them in the middle of a South American war, in which the Pathfinder shall soon play a terrifying role. From the Iguazu Falls of Brazil, to the blood-soaked battlefields of the Chaco War, and to the thrilling climax high above the Andes Mountains, Carter and his friends must take the fight back to the pirates.

R.N. Vick’s novel is a very good read. One can tell he has done his research. If you like a rousing adventure yarn combined with a good mystery, this will be your cup of tea.
