Technically, the author did a fine job of portraying flying and flyers and their airplanes. I am a retired USAF pilot myself, and I did not come across anything that made me scoff in derision. This is a bigger thing than it sounds, because most books that involve flying, when written by even very good non-pilot writers, contain SOMETHING that will make most professional pilots roll their eyes and say, "Oh, come ON! That would never happen." Ed Baldwin successfully avoided all such blunders, so my hat is off to him and I offer him a round of enthusiastic applause.
(To give you an example of some writing that didn't pass the guffaw test, I remember one book where a drug dealer was trying to escape in a Lear Jet, but someone in another plane was chasing him, so he ... get this ... ROLLED DOWN THE WINDOW in the Lear Jet so he could shoot at the other plane! I didn't stop laughing for two days.)
But back to Baldwin's writing style, the characters in the book were for the most part quite believable and credible. The plot was very well-paced, and written so the readers have no problem visualizing the situations.
If you like political adventures, flying adventures, or romance adventures, you might find this book to your liking as well.
The characters were generally believable, but some of the actions weren't. I won't reveal any spoilers, but involving civilians in dangerous activities as an "oh, by the way", isn't credible. Most civilians would become quite upset. The villains were generally vile, but when they have the opportunity to dispose of the protagonist, they don't take advantage and the hero is able to make a James Bond-like escape.
The book is entertaining enough where I'll read the rest of the books, but I sincerely hope the author's writing has matured.
then you will enjoy 'The Other Pilot' by Ed Baldwin.
It is on my MUST READ LIST, and should be on yours!

Overall I thought the book was well written and it kept my attention, and that is not always an easy thing to do. From the "air speak" side it was always technically correct and to me that has always been an important thing. The plot was well done and the transitions were smooth. I never had to turn a page back to see what I had missed. I would have liked to see more development in the Colleen character but that is just me. Always been a sucker for a strong willed lady.
