Award-winning and best-selling author James Dickey returns with the heart-stopping story of Muldrow, an American tail gunner who parachutes from his burning airplane into Tokyo in the final months of World War II. Fleeing the chaotic, ruined city, he instinctively travels north toward a frozen, desolate sanctuary he is certain will assure this survival--and freedom. Making his way through enemy terrain, on the lookout for both danger and opportunity, Muldrow's journey becomes the flight of a pure predator. Moving through the darkness, bombarded by haunting visions that consume his imagination, every step in his violent odyssey brings him closer to a harrowing climax that is pure James Dickey.
