The Story: A Native American fighter pilot is captured by the Russians during the Cold War and taken to Russia, where they plan to get military secrets out of him by any means necessary. The pilot, however, is no ordinary man, and he quickly escapes their clutches, using his outdoor survival skills to head through the Siberian wilderness. As they pursue him relentlessly, he heads for the Bering Strait, hoping to find a way to Alaska and freedom.
The story, however, ends abruptly with little resolution. While an abrupt ending is better than a bad ending, this one is so abrupt that it is annoying, for much of the story still remains to be told. It almost feels like a set up for a sequel, but a sequel was never written. The novel is still well worth reading for thriller and western fans, since the premise is handled well for most of the book. It would make a great action movie as long as the screenwriter resolved the ending in a more satisfying way.
Content Overview: A small amount of mild language. Some mild violence.
