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.

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.

Great action, both aloft and on the ground, with a fair number of players, each contributing to the plot which, while credible, seems, at times, to be a bit too complex ... nevertheless, it's well worth going back a few pages, a few times, to sort out who is who, as the many layers of the story do come together, culminating in drama of the highest order! If you are enthralled with flying, as I am, the in-flight action, alone, is worth the cost of the book.

Once again retired airline pilot Harrison Jones comes up with an airline situation that has this pilot afraid it might actually happen. The story was slow to get going, but once I was a quarter of the way into it I couldn’t put it down. I look forward to his next book.

I liked the book, it was interesting lots of aviation lots of subplots in it. Like another reader said it needed dots or a mark to differciate where one part ended and new characters started especially doing different things. If I got interrupted and went back I sometimes discovered it was a new place in the chapter. The book seemed to have so many subplots at times. I got the characters confused as to who was doing what and why. Inna real book the editing may have been better I have seen big differences from an eBook to a real book. Sometimes the real books are better especially with maps and it can have a list of characters to refer to easily. I would recommend this book to people despite some of its defects. Its intriguing and interesting. Some characters are better done than others.catwomangrr.

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 am a private pilot but have not flown for a few years due to age. This novel was one that I had a tough time putting down. The plot was well thought out and organized. It flowed easily yet rapidly. I look forward to reading another of his books.

Shadow Flight is well written and well edited. The dialogue is crisp and the story moves at a good pace. If you like novels with an aeronautical flavor, you will like this one. Mr. Harrison uses his pilot's experience to weave an entirely credible action-adventure story that melds international terrorism, drug cartels and commercial aviation. The ending is a well crafted, exciting segment that will appeal to anyone who has dreamed of piloting a 767 to a perfect instrument landing. Recommended.
