Readers will be fascinated by insider knowledge about the fabled stealth community, an elite class of only 350 B-2 pilots worldwide, of which Hannibal was trained as number 190. Because of Mr. Hannibal’s former high clearances, he had to write Wraith on an unnetworked laptop and hand carry the manuscript to Whiteman Air Force Base, where security personnel “sanitized” it and approved it for release. As one reviewer says, “You’ll wonder if reading it could get you arrested.” 

Wraith introduces readers to an exciting new fictional aviator, protagonist Michael Victor Barron. Amidst the darkness of the 9/11 aftermath and the controversy of a fatal training accident, Victor leaves his A-10 Warthog squadron to join the Stealth Bomber Wing, where he is certain he will have a better chance to gain retribution for the twin tower attacks. At the Stealth Wing, a covert operative recognizes Victor s unique talents and recruits him into the top secret world of Operation Cerberus, an executive-directed mission to eliminate terrorist leaders. Cerberus takes Victor from a harrowing flight high over a hidden desert testing facility to a fight for his life on the Iraqi dunes.

Readers are challenged to solve a secret message about Wraith and its sequel encoded into the book’s dedication. Hannibal used a 150-year old encryption technique to embed the code and then left clues in Wraiths text to help readers decipher it. Try breaking the code yourself!
