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.

Breathtaking again - irresistibly narrated!
Just like in his first two Cordell Logan Mysteries David Freed weaves suspense, drama and humor with the skillful language worthy of this Pulitzer-prize-winning journalist. His knowledge of aviation and Buddhism, as well as his military experiences provide the background for a gripping story with endearing characters.
This time Cordell Logan is confronted with a threat much more personal and deadly than ever before. And perhaps only a half-Buddhist like him is able to make the decision he does....
David Freed's novels are always a great read, but to tell the truth: Ray Porter's narration really doubles the pleasure! Not only because of his "Roll's Royce" of a voice, but also thanks to his masterful WAY of reading!
