About the Book

BRIAN'S COMET is about the competition between two aerospace companies over what may be the last major expenditure for military aircraft. The competition involves two men: one a security chief, Jim Baker, and the other an engineer who invented COMET, Brian Williams.

Another aerospace company discovered Brian's invention and began their own efforts to win the contract using any devious means possible. The competition became brutal and resulted in the most underhanded confrontation between to major aerospace companies.

The story revolves around the world of aerospace, and describes how many closed door meetings are used to manipulate suppliers to influence military decisions in winning government contracts. It is the story depicting the fundamental activities of modern aerospace companies, but also includes intrigue, love, and murder.
