Publisher's Summary

FBI Special Agent Jackson Crowne is flying his Cessna over the Appalachians with a very important passenger: renowned psychiatrist Dr. Timothy MacLean. Their destination is Washington, D.C. Upon their arrival, the FBI will protect the doctor - and ascertain just who wants him dead.

But they don't make it.

In San Francisco, married FBI Special Agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock take an early-morning phone call from their supervisor, Jimmy Maitland. Maitland received a Mayday from Jack in the mountains near Parlow, Kentucky, and sends Savich and Sherlock to see what's happened.

Agent Crowne is able to bring his plane down in a narrow valley and haul the unconscious Dr. MacLean from the burning wreckage before it explodes. Their crash is witnessed by Rachael Abbott, a young woman on the run after the mysterious death of her father. When Savich and Sherlock arrive on the scene, they find Jack and Rachael in the Parlow clinic and Dr. MacLean comatose in the local hospital, prognosis unknown.

What they do know frightens them: Dr. MacLean was recently diagnosed with frontal lobe dementia, and in the months prior to the crash, his behavior had become erratic and alarmingly uninhibited, his ability to maintain doctor-patient confidentiality badly compromised. With a patient list made up of Washington movers and shakers, MacLean's role as a keeper of secrets is jeopardized as well.

Is there someone out there so desperate that they'd kill the doctor for what he knows? It is up to Jack, Savich, and Sherlock to find out - no matter the cost.

"Coulter, one of the best romantic suspense authors, is in top form, providing readers with a pulse-pounding mystery that continues until the breathless conclusion." (Library Journal)

Appropiate title for a wreck of a book

I like Dillon & Savage books by Coulter but this one bombed big time! The dialog was lame, in the middle of a conversation one character would just say something on a completely different subject - this happened a lot. The main character kept going on an on about what she thought her father would have done - she only knew him for a few weeks - how would she have known what he would of done? The romance between her and Jack was contrived and weak. Don't waste your credit on this book.

Glad I'm a Legacy Listener

Occasionally you get a dud in everything and this was one of them. Prior reader's review on the money - speaking of which, glad I was a subscriber and didn't spend too much money for this book. Some of the main characters survive a plane crash - too bad this book was not lost in the disaster

would not recommend

Although I have read many books by this author, I am very disappointed in readers. They make the book sound like it is for a kindergarten child.

Good story

I liked the story. HoweverI didn't care for the 2 narrators switching back and forth.

Not well-written

This novel had promise, but it landed far from the mark. The dialogue was stilted; the inner thoughts laughable. The plot surrounding Rachel was complicated, and the author didn't connect the dots so the reader could understand who did what and why. The love story was improbable to the point of ridiculous. Very disappointing.

Loved it!!

Where does TailSpin rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

TailSpin ranks up there pretty high. I have read most of the series plus now have listened to almost all of them.

What was one of the most memorable moments of TailSpin?

It was great the ending surprised me I thought that the killer....well I won't give it away! The narrators were good.

Which character – as performed by Joyce Bean and Paul Costanzo – was your favorite?

Sherlock and Savich are my favorite charterers. But to be honest I loved Rachel's grit.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I didn't want to stop listening in fact I put my headset on and continued listening while my mom read a book and my daughter did stuff....they don't like listening to audio books they don't know what they are missing.
