Additional Information

It's 1956. A plane bearing a mysterious cargo takes off from a small airport outside Los Angeles and disappears into a raging storm. Nearly 60 years later, while flying over California's Sierra Nevada Mountains, retired military assassin-turned-civilian flight instructor and would-be Buddhist Cordell Logan catches a glint of sunlight on metal and spots what appears to be an aircraft wreckage. His life will never be the same.

Logan and his beautiful ex-wife Savannah, plan a reconciliation in posh Lake Tahoe. But upon landing in the Ruptured Duck, his beloved aging Cessna, Logan agrees to put those plans on hold when he's asked to help guide a search and rescue team to the remote, mountainous crash site. The team finds not only a long-missing airplane, with the mummified remains of its pilot still at the controls, but something much more recent and far more sinister: the body of a young man, shot to death only hours earlier. Someone has beaten the rescuers to the site and will clearly stop at nothing to profit from what the plane was carrying - including kidnapping and threatening to kill Savannah if Logan refuses to help them carry out their getaway plans. With the clock ticking and the love of his life in peril, Logan is drawn into a vexing vortex as personal and potentially deadly as any he's ever known.

Voodoo Ridge is a fast-paced adrenaline-fueled thrill ride filled with the kind of unexpected twists, full-throttle action and wry humor that won Freed's Flat Spin and Fangs Out, the first two installments in the Cordell Logan mystery series, rave reviews and a legion of loyal fans.

What a read...! Cordell Logan is back, acerbic as ever but finding new depth as he searches for the wreckage of a mysterious missing plane from long ago while savoring the reunion with his elusive former wife, Savannah, in this, the third novel in David Freed's series. If you relish a page-turner, you'll seriously love the breakneck action in this installment. If you relish character development, you're going to appreciate the poignant maturing of Cordell's well-drawn personality. As I've come to expect, this book has humor, pulse-quickening plot twists, aviation-themed authenticity, and surprises I could never have anticipated. I couldn't put this book down... It's a keeper.
First things first. In order to get the most from the trilogy featuring Cordell Logan, I highly recommend reading the books in order - Dead Spin, Fangs Out and finally Voodoo Ridge. I generally read mystery thrillers, particularly those involving military intrigue and espionage, but after a while they all seem to be the same with some slightly different twists. I can't recall how I got pointed in the direction of this series, but it was a good recommendation. These are stories that are fast reads and very enjoyable. No complicated plots you have to spend time figuring out - although a few surprising twists and turns.

Logan is a character you'll come to enjoy. A former member of a military Special Ops division, he now runs a flight school albeit with very few students. He lives in a garage that he rents from his octogenarian jewish landlady - who is a real hoot and quite frankly as much a lead character as Logan. And the adventures he encounters make for some very... Read more
A pivot point for the series, this is not the book you would expect based on the first two Cordell Logan adventures. This story seems to exist mainly to set up a tragic turn in his life that moves him away from the wise-cracking everyman (as they exist in this genre, with classified pasts and lethal skills) to someone less engaging but perhaps more suited to return to the world stage of covert operations as suggested in the next book, The Three Nine Line. I recommend books three and four to anyone who enjoyed the first two just so you can see if you like the new direction. As a pilot who was first enticed to try this series by its depiction of "real-world" general aviation (and an Amazon sale) I thoroughly enjoy Freed's descriptions of the joy of flying and the agony of dealing with the FAA. I'm not sure I will find the new Ludlum-laced Logan that interesting - but book #5 will tell...
