Praise for david hagberg and his works. This book is for. LAURIE. We too have broken the surly. Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth. Yamagata had shown up at Narita Airport a half-hour before Oshima’s flight to Chicago. His presence came as a complete surprise and honor. Oshima had been deeply touched. You must know that you are part of a large team that has worked for Japan’s honor for a long time. This will not be a random act of violence. No need for you to understand, except that you are not a terrorist.

David Hagberg (October 9, 1942 – September 8, 2019) was an American novelist best known for his techno-thrillers featuring super-spy Kirk McGarvey. Hagberg also wrote under the pseudonym Sean Flannery, Nick Carter, David Bannerman, David James, Robert Pell, and Eric Ramsey. Hagberg's style has been described as a cross between Tom Clancy and Ian Fleming.

Not being an expert on all things Military or Intelligence, I don't worry about so called errors that may appear in books of this genre, after all it is a novel, and Hagberg, can get really close to the truth in his writings.

David Hagberg is a former Air Force cryptographer who has traveled extensively in Europe, the Arctic, and the Caribbean and has spoken at CIA functions. He has published more than twenty novels of suspense, including the bestselling High Flight, Assassin, and Joshua's Hammer. He makes his home in Vero Beach, Florida.

Praise for High Flight. Hagberg may have out-Clancied Clancy.

Better strap in and hang on when you go for this ride. Hagberg is a major find! -Dean Koontz.

At any other time the pounding surf would have been soothing. Now it sounded ominous, the big waves coming as they did from some distant storm. Maybe even as far away as Japan. e’s head felt as if it was about to split open, and she was frightened. They’d given her some drug in Portland, and she couldn’t remember much after that, except that what had begun as some sort of crazy adventure had turned into a nightmare. How are you feeling?. Yamagata asked from the doorway.

First off let me say that I am a true David Hagberg fan having read ALL of his books (except for Joshua's Hammer--haven't seen it at any local bookstores--YET) but it seemed to me that he was TRYING to specifically tackle a subject that was very ambitious and in so doing attempted to unseat the techno-thriller throne established by Clancy. And in the process wrote an otherwise entertaining novel that could have EASILY been done with 300 LESS pages. There was SO MUCH unnecessary everything that it nearly took a great story and made it absolutely dreadful. I HATE feeling this way, especially since I have enjoyed each and every Kirk McGarvey novel to date. All in all I enjoyed this one,too--but it definitely isn't without its faults. Contrived meetings between secondary characters which solve nothing, and ultimately move the plot BACKWARDS rather than FORWARDS. I also felt that Hagberg taking on the Japanese was a bit too coincidental that it came out not long after Clancy's 'Debt of Honor' which ALSO has the US being attacked by the Japanese, and before that it was Michael Chrichton's 'Rising Sun' where we got to read a LOT of anti-far East diatribes and even farther back to Clive Cussler's 'Dragon'. Sure all of these novels are unique but it almost seems as though there is a trend going on here that pits US against THEM (Asians--Japanese in particular). Maybe I am taking this a bit too far, but I always become disappointed in novels that in order to look more sophisticated than they really are add hundreds of useless pages of backwards-plotlines that take the story nowhere fast. Okay, off the soap box. If you are big Hagberg fan, read and decide for yourself, it WASN'T a BAD novel, just not what I felt it COULD have been if a lot hadn't been cut out first.

Have to agree with some of the other readers. This book is twice as long as is necessary. Where were his editors? It may be longer than Game of Thrones. Too many characters to keep track of. Can only read a couple of pages a day. Then my arms and eyes get tired.

This book drags on endlessly going in circles. Half the book could be cut out without any loss of story.
There were so many characters (and ALL their stories) I often had to go back to the beginning of the book to refresh who they were.
I really can't recommend it.

Okay, let's get the bad stuff out of the way. I fully agree with everyone who complains about the lack of character development.
That said, we have a very intriguing concept here. It has been called Japan Inc. and the concept that business is war is taken to its logical extreme in High Flight. How separate is the Japanese government from entrenched business interests? And could there be a government behind the government that could engineer an economic attack on the United States in order to expand Japan's control over the Pacific Rim.
This is a very complex plot that involves baiting the Russians to strike back and the Seventh Fleet to intervene on behalf of the Japanese. Into this mix, a covert group attempts to gain control of America's domestic airline production industry and the plot involves sabotage of civilian airliners. There is a lot going on in this book, but it is well written and it continues to draw you on to the next page. Considering it is almost 900 pages long, this is a page turner that deserves to be read.
Whether you agree or disagree witht eh book's premise, it is worth considering.

I really enjoyed this book. I thought it an excellent action adventure novel. The plot was original. I don't think his stories are like Clancy's at all. This latest novel especially had more detail than I have come to expect from Clancy. This was a well researched story, that rolled along at a great pace. If you want an international conspiracy this is the place to come!
Ral
A 10.5 in terms of beautifully complex plots and sub-plots. Impressive Mystery, Corporate Politics, Action-Thriller with nothing held back from the reader
Brariel
Prettt slow, not enough action from the main character, good story line, but really slow, tech was pretty up to date and futureistic.
Great writing, hooked quickly and held on to the end. A fantastic story, captivating!! David Hagberg gets better and better!!!
