Jim Miller’s books include: Heavy Jets, Terror on the Tundra, Terror in Appalachia, Terror in the Smokies, One last Mission, Kentucky Weed, Vienna, Stealing Ho Chi Minh’s Gold, and Counter Intelligence, but this is the story he has always wanted to write.
He is a retired military and commercial pilot and, as former director of operations for the presidential airlift wing at Andrews Air Force Base, he is uniquely qualified to write a fictional account of an Air Force One hijacking (but without the movie’s escape module.)
He’s dealt with world leaders during international crises and observed how fragile world peace can be. The Covid pandemic made us all aware that a virus could wipe out huge swaths of mankind. Just imagine a weaponized even more virulent virus. We know there are extremists who would not hesitate to use such a weapon – even against their own people, their own nation. They obey only the fundamental genetic imperative: Protect those like you; destroy all others.
This is their story, and it is frighteningly possible.
