When Rye is asked to fly into a completely fogbound northern Georgia town and deliver a mysterious black box to a Dr. Lambert, he doesn't ask questions. He is greeted first by a sabotage attempt on his plane that causes him to crash land, and then by Dr. Brynn O'Neal, who claims she was sent for the box in Dr. Lambert's stead. Rye and Brynn are in a treacherous forty-eight-hour race to deliver the box before time runs out.
...the tremendous Tailspin might be her most ambitious and finest effort yet ... [an] exceptional slice of neo-noir ... thriller writing at its very best, a nonstop, topsy-turvy, frantic ride that steers an adrenaline-fueled course from first page to last.
Brown packs a lot of action into those two days, and her timekeeping structure reminds the reader of just how slowly the minutes are passing ... Brown sure does steer Tailspin in circles, making her readers’ heads spin.
