Heroes, honor and impossible odds. American pilot John Hampton is an in-between—he stands for nothing definite, cares about nothing, and knows nothing he wants.

Owing allegiance to no nation, Hampton hires himself on as a pilot in the midst of China's civil war. On one side is Chiang Kai-shek and, on the other, the army of Mao Tse-tung—for whom he now works.

But after his gunner is killed in a dogfight, Hampton's once devil-may-care attitude starts to change. When he rescues a captain with dispatches vital to the Chinese cause, Hampton is told the tale of the Red Pagoda, a lesson of life-and-death choices. Hampton's education proves pivotal—with an immense and deciding battle set to unfold, its outcome strangely lies in his hands.  ALSO INCLUDES THE ADVENTURE STORIES "THE CRATE KILLER" AND "WINGS OVER ETHIOPIA"

"Highly recommended for aviation action/adventure pulp fiction." —Midwest Book Review
