Details

Moments before he is executed, the killer of famed Vietnam War hero-pilot Hub Walker's daughter makes a startling allegation: the real murderer is Walkers close friend, a prominent U.S. defense contractor. Walker wants to hire somebody willing to spend a few days hunting up information that will refute the convicted killer's groundless but widely reported claims, and help restore his friends good name. That somebody, as fate would have it, is sardonic civilian flight instructor, would-be Buddhist and retired military assassin Cordell Logan. Thus begins one of the years most suspenseful mystery-thrillers.

A Medal of Honor recipient married to a former Playmate of the Year, Walker resides in the swanky San Diego enclave of La Jolla, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Logan is convinced that working for Walker will be little more than a paid vacationa chance to rub shoulders with a living legend while rekindling Logans relationship with his own enticing ex-wife, Savannah. But after flying to San Diego in his beloved aging Cessna, the Ruptured Duck, Logan is quickly drawn into a vexing and deadly jigsaw puzzle. The deeper he digs, the murkier the truth appears, and the more in danger he finds himself. Who really killed the war heros daughter, and why? Somebody in Americas Finest City, wants to stop Logan from asking questions, and will stop at nothing to silence him.

"Freed's skills as a reporter, screenwriter, and pilot made his first Logan tale (Flat Spin) a delight, and this one continues that roller-coaster pleasure. Logan is a stubborn, wise-cracking, ordinary guy with some extraordinary skills and a passion for flying. He does have a few problems following the Buddha's precepts on nonviolence, but readers will eagerly look forward to his further attempts to combine flying and detection."
--Library Journal

"Cordell Logan, the Southern California flight instructor and former black-ops specialist, returns in his second adventure. As in Flat Spin (2012), Freed combines an intriguing mystery with some engaging banter from the Spenser-like hero and several exciting flying scenes. The trick, as the series continues, will be to find believable ways to keep incorporating flying into the action. When Logan is in the air, Freed's series really takes off." --Booklist

"Fangs Out is the second book in the widely acclaimed Cordell Logan series, and like its predecessor is filled with bullet-speed wit, original characters (and a cat to die for), plus a fast-paced and intelligent plot, climaxing with more than one surprise, especially the surprise on the very last sentence of the book concerning Savannah. David Freed is a master of mordant one-liners for which Raymond Chandler's leading man, Philip Marlowe, would have given his eye teeth. Highly recommended for crime and thrillers fans alike." --NY Journal of Books
