Book Description

1 Sep 2000
In the wake of Desert Storm, a defecting Iraqi scientist has revealed Saddam Hussein's horrifying plans for a devastating counterstrike against his enemies...and the world. With no time to spare, American forces must remobilize to locate and neutralize the underground laboratory where a lethal super-virus is ready to be unleashed. But an eleventh-hour disaster thrusts the entire mission into the hands of Air Force comrades-in-arms Colonel Will Westerman and Reserve Colonel-turned-commercial pilot Doug Harris. Flying into the heart of Iraqi power, they must depend on their skills--and each other--as never before, to complete a mission that looks more and more like a suicide run...

5.0 out of 5 stars An exciting read Timed right after desertstorm 5 Jan 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Nance This time wrote a book that digs into the Middle east right after the gulf war. The story starts on a Airstrip in saudi-arabia where a group of special forces are preparing to start a mission into Iraq. The flight to Iraq is described in great detail and is a stunning part of writing on its own where all kinds of dnagers and tricks are used to fly undetected into the mission zone. When thet arrive in Iraq after a very exciting flight and a landing that would give any pilot an instant heartbeat of 200BPM they start their ground mission. A group of armed forces is already on the spot to help on the mission. A Bunker needs to be destroyed where a Bigiological agent is created which could kill thousands of people for many years to come worse than any existing biological weapon. The bunker is destroyed but 2 canisters of the biological agent is missing and the creater of the biological weapon is headed off to find and destroy the weapon on his own. This is the start of an exciting dash into the desert where the 2 missing canisters need to be found. The airplane crew have to ditch the plane in the desert after a short flight and need to find a way home. A stunning piece of writing where putting down the book was not an option. A great job once again by Mr Nance

4.0 out of 5 stars Scorpion Strike- by John J. Nance 27 Jan 2001
By Jeff Pudelski - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Scorpion Strike may start off a little slow, but a few chapters in, the action picks up its pace to the point where you cannot put it down. I turned the pages of this book very quickly, wanting to see what the next event would be. The flight scenes are very realistic and full of technical details that a reader educated in aviation would enjoy, but still understandable for readers that don't know aviation jargon. I recommend this book to anybody.

4.0 out of 5 stars Scorpion Strike 15 April 2000
By Chris Shryock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Scorpion Strike is the first book I have read by John Nance, but it will certainly not be the last. As one of the foremost experts on avaition safety in the world (you always see him interviewed on Seattle TV after a major airline accident) Mr. Nance does a brilliant job of detailing all aspects of aviation. Not being an airplane enthusiast like the author , I did get a little lost with some of the terminology. But even then I never lost the sense of suspence and desperation the characters felt as they carry out there mission. Though probably a little too technical for the casual reader, this book has all the makings of a NY Times bestseller.

Excellent thriller by Nance. Written about a subject he knows a great deal about from personal experience. Recommended for fans of military action adventures with good character development.
4.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of action to go around 3 Aug 2001
By Sonterro - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was a good book. A little predictable and corny at times, but the overall plot was a good one. There were several small stories all happening at the same time. Nance kept you hopping from one group of characters to the next.
