    • I always like these "thriller" books - a US drone goes down in Africa, falls into the wrong hands, and of course a hero has to come along to save the day. It helps if he's a little bit of a maverick - makes him and the story all the more interesting. I did check out a map of Sudan to see exactly where I was while reading this book and some pictures online of the vintage DC-3 airplane. It made me appreciate everything our hero had to go through.


    • 3 shakey starsThis book was about a 2.5 read until the last 25% of the book. I found the idea behind the main plot sort of lame. The characters are good. Fly By Night is not as nearly as good of a book as the first one. Still this book has its high points and was fairly entertaining. The CIA's top secret drone crashes in the eastern Sahara Desert and winds up in the hands of some Sudanese radicals. An airplane crash coincidentally happens shortly afterwards. Sudan doesn't have governmental agenc [...]


    • "Jammer" Davis is to detectives what bulls are to china closets. As he explains it, "I am more of a nuisance than a detective. But I get results." And that he does. Hidden inside this techno thriller is a mystery novel, and it succeeds as both.The CIA has lost one of it's top secret, latest generation drones, Blackstar, somewhere in the vicinity of the Horn Of Africa. It is assumed destroyed upon crashing, and it may have even gone down in the Red Sea, so no worriesuntil a "source" in Sudan gets [...]


    • This seems to be the most ridiculous of the three books about Jammer Davis. The main protagonist is some sort of white washed Hulk - Indestructible, strong, and knows how to fly airplanes. There are moments of the book that are plausible, but it's mostly one-of-those-thrillers where the action is important, the last-minute twists are important, and the plausibility is well hidden.


    • Some good some bad, so a solid if average 3 stars:* THE GOOD:Larsen is a pretty solid writer; has a decent style and definitely knows airplanes, so his technical stuff sounds spot on - a great example of "write what you know."* THE BAD: Unfortunately, Larsen doesn't know Sudan, the story's main setting. As I'm going to Khartoum soon, I thought reading a thriller set there would be pretty neat - but the story never gets any closer to Khartoum than the airport, (which Larsen locates much farther o [...]


    • Didn't enjoy this one anywhere near as much as the first and third books in the series. It was hard to get into and too technical at times. The setting in Sudan didn't interest me and Jammer Davis seemed to make one bad decision after another.


    • Great adventure storyAs I began to read, my first impression was that this was like a high-end adventure film. It started with an opening scene, then (after normally credits would have rolled) switched to the hero playing rugby. It is here that the hero receives his mission and the story takes off. It's a good story and I was impressed by the authors ability to develop characters, build the narrative, and set scenes. There were times when I felt like I was sitting in a bar with a bunch of pilots [...]


    • Another 3 1/2* for a Jammer Davis novel. That's just between an "I liked it" and "I really liked it".As with Fly by Wire (Ward Larsen's 1st Jammer Davis novel, Fly By Nite takes the reader on a trip to the Horn of Africa where Jammer has been sent to investigate the disappearance of a high-tech US drone. Jammer is a 'devil may care' sort of guy and a top notch investigator for the NTSB and often for the CIA. While in Africa he gets involved with a shady cargo airline company called FBN the title [...]


    • J D does it, again!Author Ward Larsen does it, again, bringing us an even wilder ride than in his first in the series book, Fly by Wire. Jammer Davis is bigger and badder then ever, doing what he does best, figuring out how a plane crashed, and in the process of doing so, getting himself right in the middle of some very dangerous people! Larsen's Jammer Davis series has only gotten better, with this 2nd book, and if there's a book #3 coming along, I'll be sure to buy it, as soon as it becomes av [...]


    • Buckle your seatbelt!Five stars for another incredible "Jammer" adventure! Is there anything that this man can't do? Ex-military, jet fighter pilot with combat action and a mind that never quits. He's somewhere between Mitch Rapp and John Ryan, as he answers the call of his country while helping the CIA, and investigating air disasters, while raising a teenage daughter as a single parent. WOW! Can't wait to start "Passenger 19" !


    • WowI've been a huge Lee Child, Jack Reacher fan for years having read them all. I have new hero and his name is Jammer Davis. Read Fly by Wire first, then read Fly by Night and you will be hooked. Ward weaves his tales in a way that sucks you in like you've pulled into a giant tornado. Thank you Ward for creating this bigger than life character. A true 10.


    • Crash LandingThis is book two in the Jammer Davis series, it can be read as a stand alone however as you would only miss some subtle nuances of the first book. This book follows the travels of Jammer as he investigates another crash & stop another possible terrorist attack. If you have watched & are a fan of Jack Bauer & the show 24 you will enjoy this book & series.


    • Hanging on to my sofawhat a ride!!Wowhanging on to the edge of my sofa for dear life. Exciting and believable. I think I'm falling for Jammerd offer kudos to author Ward Larsen. Thanks!!! If you are wondering whether to read this book or no?? If you live for excitement by vicarious means t the book.


    • Another fun spin with LarsenThis is my second wild adventure with Jammer Davis. I know nothing about flying planes or crash investigations, but the author does a great job at making it feel real and easy to understand. The subject matter doesn't interfere with the story, and the story is great! Light reading.


    • Another fun book in the Jammer Davis series. Not as good as the first one, but definitely entertaining. He's a refreshing "hero" in modern times while the book reminds me of thrillers I've read and enjoyed in the past for their straightforward path and intrigue. I will be reading the next one in the series as well because the Jammer character is, quite simply, a lot of fun.


    • Another page turner!Author has done a fine job in character development and the story never slowed. Really a fine read with lots of interesting information about aircraft and the struggle for power.


    • Like the first one of this series, it was an absolute pages Turner with a plot incredible who only the author control his brilliant hero in an hostile world! For the second in a row the author surprise me and I am excited for the third one!


    • Great bookrfect balance of muscle, wit, and heart stars for sure. Jim OwenGreat bookrfect balance of muscle, wit and heartwithout the usual f-bombs thrown in. I give it five stars. Jim Owen


    • Watch out! The ending is quite a ride. Timely is one way to describe this story. Another would be captivating. The hero is a swashbuckler who seems to get mixed up in all kinds of debacles and gets out of them on the winning side somehow.


    • The worst narrator everThe storyline was interesting. But the narrator absolutely mutilated everything I would not recommend getting the narration or anything that they ,there were two of them narrated


    • A very enjoyable bookI've decided this author is worth reading. I'm going to check out his other books. This one is really a page turner.


    • Another good Larsen bookThis guy's a good writer. His books have aviation theme but he writes in way that is easy for the layman to understand. Give his books a try.


    • Terrific Very exciting plot with twists and turns till almost the end. Kept my interest throughout. Would definitely recommend this book.



    • As Great ReadrI don't think Jammer and the Doctor could even make it as husband and wife but they could be great partners in another book perhaps about a crash in Italy.


    • this was a fun read, fast and easy. Enjoyed a hero who always won, after a shile.Will read more of the series.



    • Great readA good international spy/terrorist story that keeps you involved with a believable plot by the bad guys and a good ending



    • Fast movingLight reading which is entertaining and credible. Interesting plot which is plausible in today's political world. Recommend the book as a good read.
