Flying Blind by Howard Hammerman is the story of a man who is down on his luck, only to find out that his luck is going to get worse. The novel follows the story of Dan Goldberg. He hasn’t had the best of luck recently; he lost his job and now his wife is asking him to sell his one true love: his Cessna. His little airplane is his life and there is nothing that he would not do to keep it. His whole life changes when he is approached by a man to fly his beloved Cessna all the way to New Jersey.
He is approached by a Jamaican man who gives him a whole wad of cash ... just to deliver a package to New Jersey. Dan’s instinct was telling him that something seemed fishy, but his need for cash made him agree to this quick dash. He meets with a sexy woman named Maria, who turns out to be a call girl, and his trip is a drug drop off. Soon his trip to New Jersey is turning out to be the worst decision he ever made. He deeply regrets it, but he has no way out now. What can he do? Can he save himself in time?
Entertaining and surprisingly complex, Flying Blind is an action-packed novel that I did not want to put down. I loved Dan’s development and how he simply grew from a man who was desperate and naïve to a man who was desperate but ready to fight and conquer. Maria was such a complex character and I liked how she changed the flow of the story. I thoroughly enjoyed this simply amazing and entertaining novel.
