When America is in peril, America's top-guns must answer the call.
In the Nevada desert, the high-tech tools of tomorrow's wars are being conceived and tested at a top-secret military facility called Dreamland—where the impossible becomes reality.
The weapon is codenamed "Razor"—the brainchild of the brilliant minds at Dreamland—a mobile chemical laser system with a range of 600 kilometers, capable of downing anything that flies. The destruction of an American aircraft over Northern Iraq suggests the inexplicable and unthinkable: a vengeful foe now possesses the lethal technology. It is a fear that draws an old warrior out of retirement, and sends Dreamland's best pilots to the skies to determine what the enemy has and to help take it away from him. But politics threatens to crush a covert engagement that must be won in the air and on the ground, unleashing a devastating rain of friendly fire that could ultimately annihilate a nation's champions … and perhaps Dreamland itself.
