Nightwatch begins with the murder of the President on a deserted Crimean highway, including all with him and then goes to the Ozarks in the U.S. to find out why. A very good tale of treason and nuclear terror with a few surprises thrown in for good measure.
By the author of Crimson Tide, and it shows. Similar conflicts.
He got the airplane 90% right. He got the crew compliment and dynamic 70% right. As a 5 year veteran of Nightwatch I read it for the airplane. But it was a good story and anyone who enjoyed Crimson Tide would probably enjoy this one. I did get pulled into the tension. Lots of build up with a rather quick and easy climax, or so I thought. The movie rights have already been sold and it could make a really good movie.
