Publisher's Summary

After six long years of political genocide carried out against the American people by the administration of President Benjamin Franklin Luder, the nation is stunned when Luder announces that he is issuing an executive order to suspend the next presidential election for "the good of the country," giving him an unconstitutional third term as president. Luder has slowly and systematically robbed the citizens of various liberties and freedoms through similar acts, and in the process he has nearly destroyed the once-greatest country on earth. However, his environmental policy of "green communism" has done the most damage of all, resulting in a nationwide energy slowdown which has crippled every level of industry. It now costs the average American eleven dollars for every gallon of gasoline they put in their tanks, and in winter the elderly freeze like cordwood in their unheated homes because they cannot afford heating oil.

Like any clever Svengali, Luder does not suffer from a lack of visionary delusions. Idaho's unspoiled Sawtooth Mountain Range is rich in thorium, a much safer and cleaner alternative to the uranium currently used in the few nuclear power plants in the country that still exist. It is said that one thorium mine, located near the small mining town of Ransom, Idaho, contains enough energy to power every city in the United States for the next five hundred years. However, the mine is on private property and surrounded by federal lands.

Sean Brennan, a special agent with the newly formed United States Secret Police, sends Assistant US Attorney Haley Hendricks to Ransom, posing as an eco-journalist. Haley is assigned to find a way for the government to seize the thorium mine in the name of "national security," and Brennan's orders are to design a plan to get the president to the mine for a photo op and then safely back to the White House. Sean and Haley were once engaged, but after Haley was diagnosed with breast cancer, Sean broke things off. Since then Haley has dreamed of escaping the sewer called Washington, DC.

On her first afternoon in Ransom, Haley locates Jace Fuller, the man she has been directed to hire as a guide to the mine. From the first moment she lays eyes on him, Jace takes her breath away. But Haley soon learns that Jace's wife died several years ago and that his eleven-year-old son, Josh, is for some reason being raised by his grandparents instead of Jace.

As Jace unwittingly prepares to lead the most powerful man in the world deep into the rugged Sawtooth Wilderness of Idaho, an unseen and sinister trapbegins to unfold. Soon Jace will be forced to choose between saving his country and saving the life of his son, choosing who will live and who must die - including himself.

    "Flight of the Bowyer"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Flight of the Bowyer to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print edition, but in my opinion the audiobook gives you something that you can not get from the print edition.


    What other book might you compare Flight of the Bowyer to and why?

    Hunger Games


    What about Alex Hyde-White’s performance did you like?

    Alex Hyde-White as always does a marvelous job. His characters are believable and emotions are right on Que. He allows the voices he creates to come alive, and in doing so, a well told story becomes an excellent adventure in listening.


    Any additional comments?

    Anyone looking for a great action novel, this is it. This is an audiobook that will definitely keep your interest. A dystopian feel, with a political influence; kind of like the Hunger Games. Excellent listen, thrills, chills and suspense. Great plot line; the evil against good, where good must prevail. Great listen that will keep the imagination working. Recommend highly!
