A novel by

‘Excitement and fine writing - James Blatch’s Red Brunson is back' – Sir John Major KG CH
In the dark recesses of a hangar, hidden deep in the Mojave desert, an experimental hypersonic aircraft sits in the shadows.

A secret to all but a handful of men, the XS-81 has a very specific task, ready to protect the United State’s military secrets from a new wave of Soviet satellites.

To crew a highly sensitive first mission, a young test pilot will sit alongside an Edwards AFB veteran. For Captain Red Brunson, this is a chance to make amends after a difficult start in his test flying career.

But at the heart of this top-secret project, is a traitor.

With the United States on the brink of a humiliating disaster, exposed by a deep cover spy, Red finds himself at the centre of an incident that could make the Bay of Pigs look like a picnic.

From James Blatch, a gripping Cold War page-turner.
