Bought because of RC Bray

Bought because of RC Bray. Nearly broke down in tears because of the ending.
Full disclosure... I am a professional aviator with over 13,000 hrs under my belt. That said I don't normally like aviation related fiction. I usually grit my teeth at liberties taken in such stories to increase the drama factor. I only rolled my eyes once or twice in this story. That is a great credit to the author. The aviation side of the story was descent.
This story has lots of character driven drama outside of the flying which is again a credit to the author.
No spoilers here but the ending had me fighting to hold back the tears. Again a credit to the author who painted a landscape and a cathartic vision and ending. I hope heaven is as grand.
Well done.
Btw RC Bray is a master craftsman.

Excellent!

This is about as close as a novel can get to what helicopter rescue is all about. Written by somebody who had obviously been there and done that. I spent a 27 year Air Force career mostly in Air Force Rescue starting with SB17's and ending with HH-3's and could find no mistakes in his description of helicopter operations.

This was so good I took the brunt of my wife saying “get the head phones off!”

Bray has no equal in narration. Serving in the Army as a chief warrant officer and medivac pilot, I was amazed the details were spot on. One scene brought tears. Enough said

Promising plot.

The plot had potential. Rc Bray couldn't do a lot with the tortured editing and forced dialogue. Made for daytime TV.
