At a few minutes past 4:00 a.m. local time on Wednesday, August 31, 1983, a Korean Air Lines took off from the airport in Anchorage, Alaska, carrying 269 people: 240 passengers and 29 crew members. The flight, headed for Kimpo Airport in Seoul, wore the designation KAL 007. On board were Jennifer Stuart and her young son Jon. They never arrived in Seoul--their plane deliberately shot out of the air by a Soviet fighter jet. Jonathan Stuart was already in Seoul awaiting his wife and son. Instead he returns to New Orleans without the two people in his life that he truly loved, and filled with visions of exacting vengeance on those responsible for taking his loved ones away from him. With access to deep military intelligence and a mind-boggling array of technical weaponry--and the expertise to use it--Jonathan devotes himself to finding and destroying his enemy. His targets finally in sight, Jonathan has but one consideration left: how to answer to God for what he is about to do.
