The beast is alive and prowling the high seas. As extremist Islamic pirates, armed and supported by a powerful Saudi terrorist, prey on civilian vessels in the Gulf of Aden, America aggressively answers with serious muscle — a next-generation littoral warship with a full range of automated weapons systems that the enemy has dubbed “Satan’s Tail.” However, unforeseen technological problems combined with the suicidal tendencies of a fanatical foe mean support is needed from above — and a pair of Dreamland’s awesome Megafortresses and their Flighthawk escorts are dispatched to the war zone.
But bitter professional rivalries threaten to damage, perhaps even destroy, the mission, as a vengeful opponent takes advantage of the disruption — to strengthen his outlaw navy and set its sights horrifically high — raising the stakes in a battle the U.S. and the world simply cannot afford to lose.
