In the year A.D. 3000, Earth is a dystopian wasteland, plundered of its natural resources by alien conquerors known as Psychlos. Fewer than thirty-five thousand humans survive in a handful of communities scattered across the face of a post-apocalyptic Earth. From the ashes of humanity rises a young hero, Jonnie Goodboy Tyler. Setting off on an initial quest to discover a hidden evil, Jonnie unlocks the mystery of humanity’s demise and unearths a crucial weakness in their oppressors. Spreading the seeds of revolt, Jonnie and a small band of survivors pit their quest for freedom in an all-out rebellion that erupts across the continents of Earth and the cosmic sprawl of the Psychlo empire. For the fate of the Galaxy lies on the Battlefield of Earth. “Over 1,000 pages of thrills, spills, vicious aliens and noble humans.

Fighter pilot Gary Forsythe is a man on fire. He’s tough, steely-eyed, hunted by many and feared by all. He’s British Secret Service—a striking predecessor to James Bond—with a chip on his shoulder and a .50 caliber machinegun in his flying killing machine. He is The Devil—With Wings. The Japanese have invaded Manchuria, and Forsythe has made it his mission to stop them. Japanese Military Intelligence has made it their mission to knock the Devil out of the skies. But a dogfight with the Imperial Japanese Air Force is child’s play compared to the challenge that awaits him. Her name is Patricia Weston. Japanese spies have falsely accused the British pilot of murdering her brother—and now she wants vengeance. And for once in his life, Forsythe is disarmed—by his love for a woman who has vowed to kill him. Soar to the heights of battle and descend to the depths of betrayal as The Devil—With Wings takes you on a deadly journey to the Far East. “A rousing ... adventure thriller ... fast action.” —Publishers Weekly
