Ali Shigri, Pakistan Air Force pilot and Silent Drill Commander of Fury Squadron, is determined to understand what or who pushed his father to commit suicide--and to avenge his death.

His search immerses him in a snarl of events: Americans in Pakistan, Soviets in Afghanistan, dollars in every hand.
