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.

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.
with a different reader
too monotone, poor inflection on voices.
hard to get far because of the reader. I think I would do better reading it myself
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.
