About the Book

This cinematic novel tells the story of an American fighter pilot, a veteran of aerial combat in the Korean War. Fifteen years later, for his own compelling reasons, the former ace volunteers his services to North Vietnam in a mission to defend the small country against bombing by his own countrymen. “A film you read,” with elements of both a treatment and a screenplay, The Interceptor Pilot is a description of the action-adventure thriller that was politically impossible for Hollywood.

"Generates the power of the film it imagines itself to be."
