In Shadow Flight, Harrison Jones has spun an aviation tale of kidnapping, drug running, and intrigue. The story opens with flight instructor, Kyle Bennett, teaching slow flight and stalls to one of his students, Brooke Roberts, the wife of a surgeon. Brooke's husband, also a pilot, gave his wife flying lessons as a birthday gift. Ultimately, that gift could cost both Brooke and her instructor their lives. Fast-paced and riveting, this is a flying story that winds its way through almost every facet of a flyer's career, from flight instructing to charter work to airline flying. Jones' background as an international captain for a major airline gives him the unique insight required to tell this account of crime and terrorism. For those interested in flying as a career, this novel is educational in airline operations while the author spins a wonderful yarn. Shadow Flight will not disappoint. Once you begin listening, you will not want to stop until you are finished. If you are a pilot, you will connect with this story on many different levels, but in particular, you will absolutely identify with your own level of flying in this story - from student pilot to flight instructor, to second officer, to line maintenance technicians, to line security, to airline captain. Jones has done a masterful job of portraying much of the aviation industry in Shadow Flight.

There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
I enjoyed the author's ability to keep my interest at a high level through out the book. Situational "switches" made the story very intriguing and hard to put down.
Mr. Block's narrative was excellent considering all the characters that he portrayed. Not an easy task.
"Kept me involved and committed to the story and characters making me want the next of Harrison's books"
Great plot and story from beginning to end. Realistic in aviation lingo and funny at the appropriate times and serious at the critical times. I firmly believe anyone would enjoy Shadow Flight. Make or female, aviation fan or not, young or old. Well maybe one of the characters in the book didn't enjoy it so much but it was well deserved. I encourage u to buy this today and find out why Harrison has carved a unique style of writing in a niche that is glamorous and exciting.
"Fast Paced and Fun"
A solid contender.
It's an aviation thriller like Thomas Block's own books - "Mayday," "Captain"...
Thomas Block has created a solid library of aviation audiobooks, both his own and other authors' works.
