The CIA top-secret Blackstar drone vanishes in the Horn of Africa. Agents report that wreckage has been found, delivered and concealed in the FBN (Fly by Night) Aviation hangar at Khartoum's airport. In Fredericksburg, Virginia, the Feds are concerned with what has been recovered and hidden by the notorious FBN.

Using the crash of a DC 3 in the Sudan as a cover, the CIA dispatches National Transportation Safety Board air investigator Jammer Davis to look into the drone. A single dad whose wife recently died, Jammer flies six thousand five hundred miles to Africa while his daughter is safely in Norway with family. He is greeted in Khartoum with an attempt on his life, which sets the stage of his African adventure.

Although over the top of the Great Pyramid, Davis’ latest "Fly" investigation (see Fly by Wire) is a fast-paced, action-packed thriller that takes off from the moment the take the hill hero debarks in Africa and never slows down as he searches for the drone to learn its condition and what FBN intends to do with it. Readers will enjoy Davis’ taut battles and trysts (with an Italian doctor) as Ward Larson provides a soaring aviation thriller.
