Author Chris Broyhill and his protagonist, Colin Pearce, have something in common - they are both retired fighter pilots from the United States Air Force. But that’s where the similarities end because it seems as if Pearce can’t ever escape his many talents and live a somewhat normal life. The fourth book in the series is now available for purchase online at all major book outlets, at local bookstores and at the author’s website.

In this fourth installment of the series, Pearce takes to the skies once again!

For the last year, an elusive assassin, code-named The Shadow, has evaded counter-intelligence and law enforcement agencies around the world. During that time, 50 people have been killed with long-range, precisely-placed shots taken from the assassin’s .50 caliber rifle. The CIA knows the assassin is using a private jet to travel between targets, so Pearce’s handlers call on his unique talents to help them get closer to the killer. They send him to Paris, as a contract crew member on a Dassault Falcon 7X, and Pearce comes face to face with the deadly assassin, in a guise he never sees coming.

From a posh martini bar in London, to the playground of the rich and famous in Saint Moritz, Switzerland, to the streets of Edinburgh, Scotland and the shores of Lake Tahoe, California, Pearce is caught up in a rapidly moving adventure that puts him into the cockpits of several aircraft and forces him to confront a ruthless killer who plays upon Pearce’s own inner demons. Along the way, Pearce will have to deal with the carnage he creates with his own hands and the death that seems to occur around him. And he’ll be forced to decide if he can live with the consequences of it all. If he stays alive that long.

Chris Broyhill has loved writing and aviation for as long as he can remember.

He served in the USAF for over twenty years and reached the rank of Lieutenant Colonel before retiring.
While in the USAF, Chris amassed over 4,000 hours of flight time in the T-37, T-38A, the AT-38B, OV-10A, A-10A and the F-16C/D, Blocks 25, 30 and 42. He attended the Air Force Fighter Weapons School in the A-10 and graduated at the top of his class.

Upon retirement from the USAF, Chris transitioned to a career in business aviation and has held several leadership positions, including Chief Pilot and Director of Operations under 14 CFR Part 135 and Chief Pilot and Director of Aviation for 14 CFR Part 91 Corporate Operators.
