Calling from the Sky:
A Novel Based on True Events
“Now, Mr. Squealer, as you can see, we are not going to kill you. Instead, you are going to kill yourself.”
When Luke Corbett, the high achiever, star miler, and Eagle Scout, joins the Air Force in 1961, he has no idea of the dangers that await him. Overly enthusiastic as a missile analyst, Luke unintentionally leaks classified information to Soviet spies. He reports the incident, setting off a chain of events that soon has Luke and his wife, Cheryl, in the crosshairs of a vengeance plot. His attempts to protect himself and his family launch him on a new career path. Yet, one day he wakes up to find himself strapped to a tree with his arm stretched out, his hand tied to a fishing line attached to his hair-triggered hunting rifle, aimed directly at his mouth. Isolated in the forest, will he be able to get out of this one alive?
