This is one of those stories that just doesn't feel right. The characters' behaviors are too often beyond reasonable. And, the "bad guy" keeps escaping his fate in ways that are unbelievable (as when he is being restrained by three FBI agents, gets his hand on a pistol, and takes out all three agents), or are not explained (but are still unbelievable). This book is definitely not top shelf.

I only like fiction if the characters are fleshed out, legit and believable; and if I can't predict the next move or line. Very psyched that Hudson gave me all that and more in Northern Cross. This is easy to see as a film. Well done, Hudson!

From the small section of the book that I viewed on Amazon, I have reservations about going any further, not necessarily because of concerns about the story or plot, but because of the writing itself.

The writer spells too many things out - telling the reader, not showing the reader - something that gets very wearying very quickly and is a surefire sign of inexperience. One line for example "as he pulled into his driveway, George became embarrassingly aware of his own sellout to consumerism" - oh, really? How did this manifest itself? Why can't George pull into the driveway and at least wonder what he was doing in a place like this, maybe mutter it sotto voce, there has to be a better way than just telling the reader how George felt - make him real by making *him* tell the reader instead - through actions or interior monologue. There are many more nuanced ways of introducing a character's sense of their own situation than simply spelling it out, and they generally make for a better read. Readers like clues, they like to be able to "guess ahead" and are driven not by the things they've already read, but by the things they need to discover as they go along, the unresolved stuff, not the things they were simply told by the writer. Other moments in the book have the same ring, unfortunately. The tendency to mention makes and brands is another thing, most readers can picture a typical truck, but do they really need to know it's a Ford? If this isn't important, drop it. It's the kind of thing beginners do and leaves the reader wondering whether they should look up info about it, because it's obviously important that it is a Ford; it's like giving an incidental character too large a role - it sets up expectations that are not going to be fulfilled.

I'm not downloading this book because the reviews so far are fake. Check out all the "5 star" reviews. Not ONE single reviewer has ever reviewed any other product on Amazon. Seriously? I know this isn't helpful so don't bother with the "Not Helpful" icon...I'm making a point that staging reviews in an attempt to garner audience shows a lack of ability (in many ways).

I read this book when it was first published. I just re read my copy and was thrilled I had kept it because this author knew how to construct a good story. Imagine the mild mannered pilot lead character's past coming back to bite and control him in such a way as to turn him in to a hero while using his powerful
twin engine airplane in incredibly unsafe conditions only to falter enough to have to to share the hero's spotlight with his own wife who at first he has helped to get put smack in harms way. What I particularly like was Mr. Hudson very sparing use of gratuitous violence and vulgar language. Very Refreshing reread. K D Hart
