A Passing Advantage by Mark McGarrity is classic 80s airport fiction; simple characters yet captivating action which draws you in from the get-go and a pace that gives you a good chance of reading a fair slog of it whilst you wait for your flight to arrive/land/not be delayed indefinitely.

Based around the cold war fears of the 1980s this novel deals with military exercises in West Germany that escalate into a geographically limited war with Russia.

It's interesting, keeps your attention and doesn't suffer from any massive plot holes but like all paperback military action novels it's light on substance and has limited character building.
