A former President of the USA is wanted on charges of torture and his only safety is the plane in which he is sitting in. The pilots, as well as an ex-judge in Wyoming may be his own chances of avoiding extradition and execution.
Think of Headwind as a mix of the usual John J Nance with a good slice of John Grisham. It combines the legality of a court room battle with the thrills of flying and mixes it very well indeed. The characters, even the bad guy, are likable and believable. The plot, while not so much twisting as meandering, keeps the reader turning the pages as each scenario plays out.
Another great book by John J Nance.
