Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Edgar Award-winning author Jan Burke, acclaimed for her Irene Kelly novels, hits the ground running with a harrowing thriller featuring homicide detective Frank Harriman. When the wreckage of a small plane belonging to a Las Piernas Police Department detective who disappeared a decade ago is discovered in the San Bernardino Mountains, an emotional and disturbing triple-homicide case is reopened with a vengeance. Was the pilot a sellout who murdered a key witness? Alone, following his instincts, Frank traces the path of his predecessor to uncover the truth — and comes face-to-face with a madman whose killing intent has just taken off.

Review:

"[An] ambitious, if overlong, suspense novel....The author's thorough research is praiseworthy but it often slows down the story, and she isn't a great stylist. Unfortunately, that combination produces a book that takes too many pages to come to the point." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Fans of the Irene Kelly series should know that Flight is told from the perspective of Harriman, Kelly's husband, with Kelly as a supporting player. This book will whet the appetite of those who have never read any of this series." Library Journal

Review:

"Flight takes some adjustments for those familiar with Jan Burke's works, but once the reader adapts, the novel gracefully soars. The tale is loaded with suspense, red herrings, and false leads that turn this who-done-it into a powerful reading experience..." Internet Book Watch

Review:

"Totally satisfying....Jan Burke and Irene Kelly always delight. Burke is a craftsman, using care and imagination to craft a plot that unites disparate parts of two crimes spanning decades into a totally satisfying whole. Irene Kelly and Frank Harriman are as real as your next-door neighbors." The Washington Times

Review:

"Positively compelling....A novel of police intrigue and suspense that doesn't flag." St. Petersburg Times (FL)

Review:

"Will keep you clinging to your armrests from beginning to end." Sue Grafton, author of P Is for Peril

Review:

"A suspenseful plot that melds past and present, complex characters, and surprises galore." The San Diego Union-Tribune

Review:

"A thrilling story." Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Review:

"Flight is outstanding — perhaps Jan Burke's best book yet....Wonderful, surprising...incredibly well-conceived and expertly written." Mystery News

Synopsis:

Homicide detective Frank Harriman is on the case when when the wreckage of a small plane is found. The plane was owned by a detective who disappeared a decade before, and who was thought to be involved with aiding the killer of a police officer's family. As new evidence points to another possibility, Harriman becomes the target of someone who wants the past to stay buried.
