Flat Spin

*Book source ~ Library
300 Pages
My Rating ~ 3 bites

Cordell Logan is a flight instructor just barely keeping his business afloat when his ex-wife suddenly walks back into his life asking him to talk to the police about her current husband’s recent murder. She believes he was killed because of his past employment, something that he and Cordell shared. Because Cordell and Arlo were part of a special black ops unit, Cordell is reluctant to tell the police, or anyone, anything about their shared work history. Eventually he gives in and things go into a flat spin from there.

The best part about this story is the mystery of who is behind it all. The rest is so-so. Cordell himself is actually not very likeable. He’s a smartass without the charm of Jim Butcher’s Harry Dresden or the wiliness of JP Sloan’s Dorian Lake, both fantasy characters, I know, but Logan reminds me a bit of them. He does have a bit of the bulldog stubbornness to pull off his own investigation of Arlo’s murder not to mention the inside track with their past history and help from a techie friend in his old unit. The writing is a bit dry with some action thrown in here and there. Because he’s a flight instructor there is a LOT of flying info included. Great if you’re a fan of flying, not so much if you aren’t. Logan does have a cat though, and he cares for his landlady, so he’s not all bad. I’m just not interested enough to continue with the series.


  1. The cover is quite spooky. This doesn't sound like something I am interested in. I'll run over to goodreads though and like your review though. :)

    1. Bwahahaha!! I'm afraid to go to Goodreads this morning. Just kidding. :D
