An F-18 Navy fighter careens out of the blue sky above the Mojave desert. A TV cameraman who grew up in a small town just miles away can see what is going to happen next. Frantically, Wes Stewart races to the downed jet and tries to save the pilot’s life. When the plane explodes, Wes escapes without harm—and plunges into a murderous conspiracy.
It’s been 15 years since Wes has been back to the desolate land of his childhood. Now he finds himself up against the U.S. military, the local police, and someone who is tracking his every move. In the moments he spent with the dying pilot, Wes discovered something that could get him killed. But while he tries to untangle a web of lies and secrets surrounding the crash, another danger is stalking him. And this one he will never see coming.

Listening to books is the way I separate from the stress of being an attorney. I enjoy fiction, mystery thrillers, an occasional romance, and books about cutting edge medicine and science. I was a History major so that is always interesting too.
Thrums with intrigue
Yes. The character who practiced Eastern medicine made the predictable zig-zag because his character was so enigmatic.
Probably. I listen to many books.
I found that this one was hard to turn off, so yes.
I loved the blending of cultures, the strength of the characters, and that the female protagonist was not the cliche warrior princess. Something about the development of this character made her feel unusual. Each character was strongly developed and strongly distinguished by the narrator.
Good storyline although a bit far fetched in some areas but storyline held together well
Havent read the print version but enjoyed the narration
no real comparison
Great narrator - brings the characters and story to life
Not really - many twists and turns that you need to think about
