What does Thomas Block bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Thomas Block orates his new audiobook Open Skies with the gravitas of a senior airline captain. His protagonist Jack Sawyer is a former commercial aviator turned private investigator after his airline fails, and he sours to idea of starting the airline seniority system again from the bottom. When an insolent co-pilot turns up dead—squished between the industrial, hydraulic, lifting joists of a catering truck—the airline’s CEO calls upon Jack to explore the probability of foul play. The first clues arrive in the form of barely-missing bullets fired from an unknown, handgun-wielding adversary. Retired Captain Block salts his novel with airport, airline, and aircraft details using his skill as an experienced industry insider.
