Iron Gate (A Matt Pontowski Thriller)

By Richard Herman

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘Dick Herman makes air combat come alive.’ Chuck R.

The world on the edge of destruction. One man fighting to save it.

Flying, fighting and dying, with a little loving on the side, Colonel Matt Pontowski is on a UN peacekeeping mission in South Africa.

In his legendary wing he attempts to save the country from turning into a bloodbath. Caught in the chaos of political collapse and a nuclear race, South Africa has become dangerously unstable and the atmosphere is hostile.

The world’s major powers start to take sides and the scene is set for a brutal war.

Pontowski leads his air wing into the fray. He finds himself drawn into covert operations. Is he fighting for the right side, or has he led his fighter pilots into the hell of war for no good reason at all?

Written by a former USAF fighter pilot, Iron Gate is a truly gripping tale with plenty of adrenaline-pumping action and superbly described air combat sequences.

A riveting thriller that’s perfect for fans of Tom Clancy, Clive Cussler, Frederick Forsyth, Stephen Coonts, L.T. Ryan, W.E.B. Griffin, Dale Brown and Larry Bond.
