General Patrick McLanahan's new Aerospace Battle Force has grown into a full-fledged task force based on the Armstrong Space Station. Providing almost instant access to space and every corner of the globe using the Black Stallion spaceplanes, the ABF's powerful network of satellites and unmanned aircraft controlled from space cannot only attack any target anywhere on the planet within hours, but can even invade any computer network as easily as making a phone call.

But the program has its critics and doomsayers, including Russia, the United Nations, and the American press. Wealthy, Western-educated, and sophisticated Russian president Leonid Zevitin uses a combination of top-secret anti-spacecraft weaponry, fearmongering, and new U.S. president Joseph Gardner's own egotism in an effective plan to eliminate all support for the space program.

Gardner and his allies in Congress and the Pentagon will stop at nothing - even destroying one of their own - to get what they want. Yet McLanahan and his forces refuse to allow the Russian aggression to stand. McLanahan ignores directives from the White House and Pentagon to stand down and orders the ABF to attack secret Russian bases in Iran.

President Gardner orders McLanahan's immediate arrest. But before authorities can throw him in jail, they have to figure out how to retrieve him from the space base orbiting the Earth.

Currently in control of the Aerospace Battle Force from Armstrong Space Station, McLanahan closely watches Russia's movement of weaponry while defending himself against the president's attempts to discredit him. In a race against time, McLanahan must outmaneuver his own countrymen, defeat the Russians, and expose the truth...or die trying. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Matthew | 12/24/2013

    " Interesting read, I was not impressed wiht the story, so many characters, so much detail that it became difficult to read without having to re-read previous parts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thomas | 12/1/2013

    " While Dale Brown is not the greatest storyteller of all time, particularly regarding sometimes predictable plot twists, I have not read a book of his that I did not enjoy. Shadow Command is no exception. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelly | 2/12/2013

    " This book may be of interest if you are a fan of the author or series but the book failed to capture my interest. Too much techno-babble with not enough plot lead to a disappointing read. I enjoy a good techno-thriller as much as the next reader but give me more plot please. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephen Kennedy | 11/25/2012

    " I have read every Dale Brown book he has written (although not many of the co-authored books). This book was ok and Brown fans will probably enjoy it. Not a book to start with if you haven't read previous books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim | 4/29/2012

    " Another protagonist defending the world against the evil powers that threaten us. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 3/13/2012

    " McLanahan is now a General and fighting liberal beauracrats as well as "kill America" bad peeps. Standard fare, fun, escapist. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tim | 3/12/2012

    " Yuk. Could be the beginning of the end for Dale Brown with this clinker. He spends too much time writing about devious Russians, spineless U.S. presidents, weak servicemen with descriptions of parts and procedures of all gadgets instead of interesting story lines. 2 of 10 for this stinker. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angelique | 11/27/2011

    " For those who like futuristic military macho books, you will probably enjoy this. A little to surreal for my tastes even if I considered this science fiction and yet somehow I had to finish to see how they would resolve this. "

    " A good read not he best but still good "

    " Currently working on this one. Author is really good on latest military technology. Makes for a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Skip | 10/12/2010

    " Best global conflict, high tech writer, but the plot here is not remotely credible as Patrick McLanahan defies a weak, ineffectual President and takes unilateral action against numerous combatants. "
