Description

For an air marshal turned private investigator, the sky holds endless possibilities for danger. Still reeling from a devastating personal tragedy, air marshal turned investigator Seth Walker embarks on his first case. All he has to do is accompany female pop star Max Magic to Los Angeles and deliver her to the FBI. But when their routine flight ends in a hail of gunfire at LAX, Walker has no choice but to take the frightened diva on the run. After a second attack leaves him battered and bloody, Walker realizes he cannot trust the FBI. To keep his client alive, he must use a patchwork of trusted aviation contacts to get her home to Austin, where the key suspects await. But as they race to stay one step ahead of their deadly pursuers, the biggest danger of all may be what they're heading toward-the dark secrets that Max herself has been keeping.

Professional reviews

"Former Air Marshal Seth Walker's simple assignment to deliver Max Magic, a diva pop star, to the FBI in Los Angeles goes violently awry during a frenetic shoot-out. Walker and Magic go on the run and quickly learn they can't trust anyone, not even the FBI. Narrator JD Jackson's velvety voice gives emotional depth to Walker and, especially, the young Max Magic. The story unfolds from Walker's perspective, but Max Magic and even minor characters crackle with life, thanks to Jackson's myriad accents and voices. His timely changes in inflection and tone shine despite the lackluster story. Initially, the tightly paced plot thunders along, but eventually it lags in points, suffering from far-fetched plot twists and crumbling near the end. J.M.M. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
