About the Author

Harrison Jones writes aviation fiction from a personal perspective. Before becoming an airline pilot, his forty year career included an enlistment in the U.S. Navy followed by stints as an aircraft mechanic, a pilot ground school instructor and a flight instructor. He retired as an international captain with more than 20,000 hours in the cockpit and extensive flying throughout Europe, Asia, South America, and the Middle East. While serving as a Civil Reserve Air Fleet pilot during Operation Iraqi Freedom, he was recognized by the Air Mobility Command with the Aerial Achievement Medal for flying numerous troop transport missions into Kuwait. His writing features realism and plausibility that is uncommon in aviation novels. Harrison's method has been described as separating fiction from fantasy by developing plot that is not only possible but could easily show up in tomorrow's headlines. Harrison says, "My career has blessed me with an endless supply of colorful characters and I allow them to dialogue freely. My narrative is there to simply keep them in scene and herd them all toward a final conclusion." A native Georgian, Harrison lives near Atlanta with his wife, Diane.

Honestly, by the end of the second chapter I slid back to read the author bio. He's American, so my initial thought that this book suffered so grievously from an online translator app or something wasn't the problem. Does the publisher do ANY copy editing at all? This could be a great book, but I was constantly being yanked out of the plot by stupid errors. Many, many errors.

As others mention, it's Colombia, not Columbia, and it was misspelled every time, and that is a lot as that country figures quite prominently in the plot. Spanish words were incorrect, "buenos diaz" being one example. The wrong form of "to" as in "I'll go if I have too" about 10 times (all the more annoying because sometimes it was the correct form). Questions ended with periods 5 times. "Bath" instead of "bathe" and "broke" instead of "broken". A "canvass" bag (evidently this bag goes out to solicit votes). Then words ending in -est are used as plurals, such as "guest" as in "5 guest came to my party", and "vest" treated the same way, half a dozen times altogether. The phrase "had saw" was used. That was the first time I ever "had saw" an author do that. "Had came up" was also used. And "clear conscious" when it should be "clear conscience". That is not everything, just the most blatant ones. This was extremely distracting. I felt like I was reading a high school effort as far as writing conventions.

The story line was not without detail errors also. Spoiler alert for those who may read it (and it IS a good story, so you might like to). People from Iran are not Arabs, they are Persians, and they speak Farsi, not Arabic.

I thoroughly enjoyed Harrison's style of writing, descriptive characters and suspenseful storyline. Having a father as a pilot and being emmersed in the airline industry most of my life, I found Shadow Flight to be engaging, entertaining as well as informative. It was just enough, "Pilot Lingo" and espionage to keep my fathers attention and just enough love and suspense to keep mine! Great book... very adaptable... would make a great movie!

While I found the story intense and absorbing, I was annoyed with a problem that might either be due to inept writing, inattentive editing or sloppy transposition. Within most chapters, scene changes were not denoted by additional spacing between sentences, or the insertion of a dash line. This was confusing, annoying and very disruptive to the continuity of an otherwise observing story fairly well told.

Harrison Jones is a great story teller! This book caught my interests on page one and kept it through the awesome end. If you travel, you will understand what I mean when I say, "My reading usually happens when the 'Personal Electronic Devices' light is on"; however, with "Shadow Flight" my work had to wait. I enjoyed it so much, that I gave copies of it to several of my friends for Christmas.

In Shadow Flight, Instructor pilot Kyle and one of the female students he is instructing in flight training and procedure are kidnapped by a drug lord's henchman. The lord is intent on teaching his own pilots how to fly small planes so that, in turn, these pilots can illegally fly drugs into the United States at night. It goes without saying that initially, authorities believe Kyle's flight has gone down either in the Pacific Ocean, or possibly in the wild country separating the United States from New Mexico including miles of treacherous mountain terrain.

Kyle is stripped naked and left in a darkened cell for several days so that, psychically, he will be more than willing to cooperate with the drug lord. Kyle is left with little choice. It's cooperate, or he and his flight trainee will die. She, too, is held naked in solitary confinement. Kyle does his best to pretend to cooperate. Once each set of wheels of the drug lord's trainee fleet leave the ground, Kyle must give these pilots the best possible instruction in order for him to return safely to terra firma.

In Shadow Flight, as Kyle unwillingly continues his flight training, once again he is taken hostage for an even larger venture. He and the drug lord's loyalists insist that Kyle fly one of the gigantic Boeing planes as part of a terrorist plot, much like the kamikaze pilots who flew similar planes into two New York buildings on 9/11. Again, Kyle has little choice but to cooperate, or his captive female friend's life will be extinguished.

This book has highly intriguing stories and some very hairy flying. However, there's heavy turbulence early on, where you encounter several plots that are only sporadically connected, each having many different characters. And author Harrison Jones navigates with a heavy stick, jerking you back and forth between plots without transition. It's hard to know who knows what about what.

However, stay strapped in if you can. The plots begin to merge about a quarter of the way along. But you'll still have to pay close attention given the numerous characters that remain in play, plus many new ones. Hint to readers: this is essential to identify which of the 767's is which as Harrison Jones flips back an forth between them, identifying them only by who's aboard. Hint to Harrison: (1) use less than one-tenth the number of characters used in this book if you want a readership unrestricted to those with eidetic memories and (2) use far more transition.

Note to Harrison Jones: congrats on superb content throughout and an outstanding finale.

Martin Fricke, Ph.D.
