Martin DuPont has recently released a novel that captures the intensity and terror of the air war in Vietnam. “Beyond Fear” (published by Xlibris) tells the gritty tale of Mac Deverreaux, a USAF fighter pilot who finds himself at the center of a bitter conflict that will test his courage and change his life forever.
The year is 1971 and Captain Deverreaux is thrust at the center of the air war in Vietnam. He is highly skilled as a fighter pilot and hell-bent on exacting revenge for the death of the woman he dearly loves — a deadly combination, which after two tours of combat puts him on a new and even more dangerous spy mission flying the SR-71 “Blackbird” deep into the heart of the Soviet Union.
DuPont drew inspiration for the story and indelible characterization from his own combat experience in Vietnam and in Central Asia. A gripping narrator, he takes readers on a hair-raising adventure through war-torn landscapes, aerial espionage, Machiavellian machinations, freedom wars and finally the novel’s unforgettable conclusion.
Suffused with the tense air of the Vietnam War era, “Beyond Fear” is a brilliantly orchestrated novel filled with unforgettable characters and twists that will absorb readers from beginning to end.
