Publisher's Summary

A top-secret drone crashes in the lawless Horn of Africa. The CIA is prepared to write off the loss, until evidence surfaces that the wreckage of their prized aircraft is hidden in a hangar outside Khartoum's main airport. The hangar is owned by a shady cargo airline that flies ancient DC-3s across Africa and the Middle East. The name of the company does nothing to still concern: FBN-Fly by Night Aviation. The U.S. government must find out what is in the hangar, and when an FBN airplane crashes, the opportunity arises for the National Transportation Safety Board to send an investigator to get to the bottom of things.

Jammer Davis is the NTSB's biggest headache, but also its best solo operator. He goes to Sudan in the name of solving an air crash, but with the true aim of locating the priceless remains of America's latest techno-logical marvel.

As Davis enters this inhospitable world, he finds the two disparate mysteries strangely intertwined. True to his nature, Davis barges ahead. Yet everything he finds takes him in reverse.

    "Solid fiction"

    Although this book is a fiction the story is backed up by professional background of the author and therefore very exciting and interesting due to many aviation related details. I enjoyed it a lot.

    "Exciting and entertaining"

    The story is simple and interesting, joined to the beautiful, detailed descriptions of the technical aspects of every event, reading is pure joy and listening to the clear, expressive vocal narration makes the book as pleasant as a joy ride flight to a heavenly destination. Thank you for a wonderful book.

    "Hard to put this book down."

    Excellent story line, and because I like audio books I thought Tim Campbell was a very special narrator. This is my second book by Ward Larsen and I look forward to future books. Especially if Tim is the narrator.

    Story
    "Well...."

    The book took until the last 8 chapters to get my attn. I had to make myself push through. Too much time was spent in the "investigation" which contributed neither important back story or material to capture interest. Main character was 2-demensional at best.

    Would you be willing to try another book from Ward Larsen? Why or why not?

    with a different reader


    What didn’t you like about Tim Campbell’s performance?

    too monotone, poor inflection on voices.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    hard to get far because of the reader. I think I would do better reading it myself

    "Good story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I enjoyed this, but was often put off by the voice. At times there would be this awkward "he said" as if added later. The voice inflection at times was distracting. That said, it was a good story. I enjoyed some of the details. Having been a diver years ago I was a bit skeptical that Davis could go down 50 feet and scout a sunken C-47 (DC-3) on the bottom of a sea. That is fiction, I guess.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Somewhat.


    Did Tim Campbell do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    So, so.
