This is an action-packed story set in the late stages of the Cold War. The technology -- some of which falls into the category of science fiction -- is well described and is a major character in the tale.

I had read this book some years ago as a paperback. When I learned that it was out as a e-book I had to read it again and thoroughly enjoyed the re-read.

The MakoShark is the most advanced military aircraft in United States Air Force’s arsenal. It can travel at unreal speeds, disappear on radars, and fly so quietly that enemies standing outside on a clear day would not realize it was flying overhead until its shadow passed over them. Piloting the MakoShark is Colonel Kevin McKenna along with his weapons officer Munoz. Together, the pair are adventurous and precise as they take on the missions assigned to them by their command group. The most recent mission was to photograph German oil wells in the Barents Sea. Oil wells that, for some reason, are under constant protection by the German Air Force and Navy. Oil wells that might not be oil wells after all.

William Lovejoy delivers a sensational, amazingly descriptive novel in Delta Blue. The novel is incredibly well written and takes the reader from Andrews Air Force base to the skies over Africa and all the way to a near Earth orbital platform known as Themis. The story takes us through the adventures of Delta Blue, the call sign for McKenna and his MakoShark, and the political workings which lead to the corruption within Germany that give rise to a new and dangerous threat. Fans of military fiction and science fiction alike with love this fast paced read.
