Firefox was the only Craig Thomas novel to be adapted into a movie. Clint Eastwood's version, released in 1982, made for a faithful adaptation of the book. Though the special effects of the time are horribly dated by today's standards, Eastwood brought all the suspense of the first half of the book to the screen masterfully. And if it weren't for the film, I wouldn't of ever heard of Craig Thomas and be able to enjoy all of his books.

Have read all of Craig Thomas's works, this is one of his best, have been waiting to read this for years. Picking up exactly where the last let off, Thomas displays his masterful sense of precisely paced action, riveting aerial scenes and nuanced charachters

Have read all of Craig Thomas's works, this is one of his best, have been waiting to read this for years. Picking up exactly where the last let off, Thomas displays his masterful sense of precisely paced action, riveting aerial scenes and nuanced charachters. Not as personal a novel as "Firefox", which was more centered around pilot/pirate Mitchell Gant, "Down" is more of an ensemble piece with more charachters in the trenches.

This is a fantastic book which takes the reader into the stratosphere. Thomas became an English Teacher, working in various grammar schools in the West Midlands, and was Head of English at the Shire Oak School, Walsall Wood. This book proceeds at supersonic speed and is thoroughly enjoyable.

Throughout his eleven years teaching English, Thomas longed to go into writing.

I have fallen in love with Craig Thomas. He brings his stories to life in such a way,that I actually have to put them down a nd come up for air. His cahracters are real and ,although these are written back in the eighties,still feel very relevant in today's world. If you like action,spy thrillers and great writing,you will love his novels. I am working my way through all of them and will be very sad when I have finished.

This is truly a masterful work of action & suspense! Craig Thomas puts the reader in Michael Gants shoes as he infiltrates Moscow & steals the Soviets coveted Mig 31(There is a REAL Mig 31, it's called the Foxhound.) The movie is equally entertaining. Craig Thomas is up there with aviation great Stephen Coonts. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this to any aviation fan & those who like action-adventure novels. The rivalery between the U.S. & the Soviet Union continue to this day. None was this more "heated" than in the Cold War. Little known fact: The REAL Firefox was Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin's daughter who came to the U.S. appalled by her father's regime.

This is the second novel by Craig Thomas, and the one that he's gotten the most fame from. Thomas gives this book a bigger scale than his first novel, Rat Trap, and his novels would get more epic as they went along.

Set during the cold war, the story invloves a newly-made Russian jet, the MiG-31, codename: Firefox. It has stealth technology, can go speeds up to Mach 5, and has a thought-controlled weapons system. The West knows what a threat this can be, so what do they do? Smuggle the best pilot they can find into the Soviet Union so he can steal it. USAF pilot Mitchell Gant is chosen, dispite his shell-shock from his time as a POW in Vietnam. With the help of Jewish dissidents, Gant must make his way through Russia and hijack the super-plane right under the noses of the Soviets. Throughout the journey Thomas takes us through Gant's unstable psyche.

A great novel from Craig Thomas, but I got a little bit bored with some of the flying scenes. I'm more of a cloak and dagger fan than of high tech stuff, but that's not to say that those parts of the book aren't written well; they are, and Thomas does a great job at not hitting you over the head with his research. And even with the techno stuff he can really put you into the heads of his characters which makes for high tension reading.

Craig Thomas also cast Mitchell Gant in three more novels: Firefox Down, Winter Hawk, and A Different War.

I like the idea behind the story, but I am not impressed with the writing style. This book reads like what it is which is a book about a movie.

Been many years since I read this thriller, and for some reason, I wanted to revisit it. Still an amazing story.
