Publisher's Summary

A year and a half into her first term as President of the United States, Libby Paulsen is in a world of trouble. Her controversial agenda has placed her in a doomsday clash with a right wing cabal led by an enigmatic Air Force general. The conspirators will stop at nothing - including assassination - to remove Libby Paulsen from office. When the cabal targets Air Force One, Libby's Presidency - and her life - rest in the hands of a maverick pilot named Pete Brand, a man with whom the President shares a long-smoldering secret. The President's Pilot is a high-stakes political and military thriller drawn from today's - and tomorrow's - explosive headlines.

Gives a whole new meaning to Snakes on a Plane!

If you could sum up The President's Pilot in three words, what would they be?

Fast paced.

Have you listened to any of Thomas Block’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not that I can see, but I will again. He captured the characters well, and was consistent. Some odd pronunciations and accents at times, but on balance a job well done.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Mrs. President, we have a problem.

Any additional comments?

This story moves very fast, and requires a great deal of suspension of disbelief. ( Truly the luckiest woman on earth! ) Technically it has good chops, a fine reader, and resolves reasonably well. I liked it somewhat more than my rating indicates, as I found some big plot holes. Technically well researched however, and a fun , if not light, listen.

Possibly the Worst Narrator I've Ecperienced

I just don't buy military conspiracy theories as plausible here in the USA. I hope I'm right. Nevertheless there seems to be no shortage of government conspiracy thrillers by some of the country's best authors in the thriller category.

Still, the idea of a rogue Air Force One pilot saving the President appeals to me. Here is where the remarkably horrible, unprofessional narration comes into play. Any chance of the book being saved by great characters is destroyed by Mr. Block. But I can't blame him. He's so bad that I have to point to the producer for allowing this performance to happen.

Before you buy, just listen to the 5 minute preview.
