Choppers to die for

Published 2010 by AuthorHouse in Bloomington, IN USA .

Table of Contents

South Africa is currently in the news with the 2010 Soccer World Championship, and a golfer that won the British Open Championship.
But the media ignores the South African armament industry's capability, which ranged from conventional firearms to nuclear weapons. This remains a threat to major military forces that are fighting world terrorism.
This novel is set against the background of this African armaments industry and its weapon capabilities. Because this industry is still important to South Africa,
Julius Grant, a military journalist, was retained as a consultant by an aviation company, Africair. This company needed a substantial attack helicopter order from a questionable military client that would create thousands more jobs for the New South Africa.
Julius Grant was confident that a well designed marketing communications strategy would ensure a successful bid to supply a large number of highly sophisticated attack helicopters to the forces in Southeast Asia. Grant was excited by this lucrative project - not realizing that it could be the death trap of a crafty but brutal back-stabbing international armaments transaction.
Jack du Preez, an attack helicopter test pilot, who desired to satisfy a personal revenge by assassinating President Nelson Mandela, complicates Grant’s objective. An experienced Vietnam attack helicopter pilot, Brian Boddington, is also drawn into this clandestine international weapons transaction.
To execute their covert and dangerous missions, du Preez and Boddington needed to track Grant and his team from London to Dubai, Johannesburg, and Cape Town and on to magical Malaysia, where an international aviation show explodes into a ferocious and disastrous rendezvous.
This story introduces the reader to fictitious characters that create a new genre: the unrevealed reality of what took place behind the Apartheid Curtain in the armaments industry of South Africa. This tale will keep readers riveted to their armchairs.
