Review of Contrails by Robert Anderson

Synopsis: "Sam Claymore works for Civil Airlines, sleepwalking through the highs and lows, the ups and downs of being a pilot. He survives working alongside a wacky cast of captains, turbulence scares, even being estranged from his father. Nothing fazes him until one day he is unexpectedly furloughed. What Sam will do becomes the new route he must navigate.

Enter Nate McFadden, a childhood friend living in Miami. Nate contacts Sam at the right time, a time when his moral compass may be susceptible to manipulation. Nate moves Sam in, getting him a job where being furloughed is the least of his worries. Follow Sam as he descends deeper into a world he could've never imagined. CONTRAILS is a story of real people faced with extreme decisions, the consequences of which could mean their lives."

My Review:  I am not normally one for thrillers, but this one caught my interest and now I wish I had read it way back when I first received it. I thoroughly enjoyed it and really enjoyed the characters and story line. The set up at the beginning of the story was great, there was a lot of 'pilot talk' so that was a little confusing but it really set the scene well. It was an adrenaline pumping story and one I could definitely see adults, teens, guys or ladies enjoying.
My Rating: This was a very fun book to read and even outside my comfort zone. I enjoyed it so much I am even considering purchasing the next book called Drug Wars.  I give it a rating of Four Paws.
Contrails was sent to me by the author (an embarrassing amount of time ago) for an honest review.
You can obtain your own copy of Contrails in digital format on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.


  1. That cover needs some work. This book would be out of my comfort zone as well. I should branch out, but I probably won't.

    1. It definitely does need work, it doesn't give the slightest inkling as to what the novel contains. I enjoy pushing outside my comfort zone, but it is a risk. I have had some pretty epic failures but also some outstanding new genres opened up to me.
