Freed’s third Cordell Logan mystery finds the pilot-sleuth up in the air again, both aeronautically and personally. Flying to Lake Tahoe in his creaky Cessna to remarry his ex-wife, Savannah, Logan spots a shiny piece of metal where it shouldn’t be, high in the Sierra Nevadas. Evidence of a plane crash? Logan dutifully reports the sighting to the authorities and accompanies police into the mountains in search of the wreckage. They find the downed plan, and it turns out to be not just any plane but, rather, a long-missing aircraft carrying mysterious but apparently highly sought-after cargo. And, one more thing: they also find the body of a recently shot young man. It only gets worse. Soon enough, Savannah has been abducted, and Logan’s wedding weekend is looking like a world-class disaster. Freed has a serious surprise in store for the reader this time, and he skillfully builds up to the shocker. The unusual pilot-sleuth premise, the jaunty style, and the genuine suspense combine to make this one a thoroughly entertaining installment in what has become a fine series. --Bill Ott
"For once, Cordell Logan, ex-military assassin turned flight instructor, is happy. After years of trying, he finally has reconciled with his beautiful ex-wife Savannah, and together they are flying to Lake Tahoe to retie the knot. But as Logan pilots his plane over the spectacular Sierra Nevada, he spots something metal protruding from a snowbank in a remote mountain canyon. It turns out to be the wreckage of a small plane that disappeared during a snowstorm nearly 60 years ago. The first two novels in Freed's Cordell Logan series were peppered with humor as we watched the protagonist struggle to reconcile his propensity for violence with his newfound Buddhist philosophy. The threat to Savannah leaves less room for humor in "Voodoo Ridge," although Logan's encounters with his fiercely independent cat and his quirky landlady, Mrs. Schmulowitz, provide occasional moments of comic relief. But the tension-packed plot and the fine prose, including well-drawn characters and vivid portraits of the natural landscape, are just what fans have come to expect from this author." --Bruce Desilva, Associated Press
"In Freed's engaging third Cordell Logan mystery (after 2013's Fangs Out), Logan, a struggling flight instructor and wannabe Buddhist, is trying to forget the skills and memories that he acquired as a government anti-terrorist agent. What makes this entry stand out are the setting in the non-glamorous areas around Lake Tahoe and the sharply drawn, oddball supporting characters." --Publishers Weekly
"This book sees an author hitting his stride. This is minimalist thriller writing at its best. The words have a lean and hungry look as they lope across the page and chase you on to the emotionally powerful ending. This is a must-read!" --San Francisco Book Review

Logan is a character you'll come to enjoy. A former member of a military Special Ops division, he now runs a flight school albeit with very few students. He lives in a garage that he rents from his octogenarian jewish landlady - who is a real hoot and quite frankly as much a lead character as Logan. And the adventures he encounters make for some very good reading.
A word of caution. If you read the first book and aren't totally impressed, don't stop. The story will continue to evolve and you'll likely get a fair amount of enjoyment from this series.
