Fly by Night will shock you with a conspiracy so devastating that it will shake the world
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 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 technological 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, disproving what little he has been given as fact. From Khartoum, to the Sudanese desert, to the Red Sea, Davis is unstoppable. He soon discovers that more is at stake, an incredible conspiracy that will tear the region apart. And one that will threaten America like nothing before.
Perfect for fans of Daniel Silva, Fredrick Forsythe, and Tom Clancy
While all of the novels in the Jammer Davis Series stand on their own and can be read in any order, the publication sequence is:
Fly by Wire
Fly by Night
While Larsen deserves credit for crafting an unusual contemporary action hero, air crash investigator Jammer Davis, this sequel to 2010's Fly by Wire doesn't maintain altitude. Davis's old boss at the National Transportation Safety Board recruits Davis, a single father whose wife died in a car accident, to find the truth behind the suspicious disappearance of a Blackstar, an advanced CIA unmanned aerial vehicle, near the Horn of Africa. The CIA wants to use an inquiry into the crash of a DC-3 near the Sudan as the pretext for Davis to get information about the Blackstar. Five minutes after landing in Khartoum, Davis is battling for his life and continues to do so for the rest of the book. All the standard plot devices are present and accounted for, including a love interest in the person of a sexy Italian doctor. Readers who demand little realism in their thrillers will be most rewarded.
