Don't miss the spine tingling suspense and tantalizing romance in this thriller about a daring pilot caught in a race against time from #1 New York Times bestselling author Sandra Brown.

Rye Mallett, a fearless "freight dog" pilot charged with flying cargo to far-flung locations, is often rough-spoken and all business, but soft on regulations when they get in the way of meeting a deadline. But he does have a rock-solid reputation: he will fly in the foulest weather, day or night, and deliver the goods safely to their destination. So 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.
As Rye's plane nears the isolated landing strip, more trouble than inclement weather awaits him. 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. Despite Rye's "no-involvement" policy when it comes to other people's problems, he finds himself irresistibly drawn to the intrigue surrounding his cargo . . . and to the mysterious and alluring Brynn.
Soon Rye and Brynn are in a treacherous forty-eight-hour race to deliver the box before time runs out. With everyone from law enforcement officials to hired thugs hot on their heels, they must learn to trust each other so they can protect their valuable cargo from those who would kill for it.

Tailspin - Sandra Brown Summary

A spin is a special category of stall resulting in autorotation about the vertical axis and a shallow, rotating, downward path. Spins can be entered intentionally or unintentionally, from any flight attitude if the aircraft has sufficient yaw while at the stall point. In a normal spin, the wing on the inside of the turn stalls while the outside wing remains flying. It is possible for both wings to stall, but the angle of attack of each wing, and consequently its lift and drag, are different. Either situation causes the aircraft to autorotate toward the stalled wing due to its higher drag and loss of lift. Spins are characterized by high angle of attack, an airspeed below the stall on at least one wing and a shallow descent. Recovery and avoiding a crash may require a specific and counter-intuitive set of actions. A spin differs from a spiral dive in which neither wing is stalled and which is characterized by a low angle of attack and high airspeed. A spiral dive is not a type of spin because neither wing is stalled. In a spiral dive, the aircraft responds conventionally to the pilot's inputs to the flight controls and recovery from a spiral dive requires a different set of actions from those required to recover from a spin.In the early years of flight, a spin was frequently referred to as a "tailspin". A method used to control a spin before it fully develops is a maneuver called the falling leaf...

Tailspin - Sandra Brown Book Reviews (414)


Tailspin1 star

Do not waste time or $$....juvenile at best. 15


Tailspin2 star

I always read every book I buy even if after the first few chapters it seems like a waste. This was one of those that, back in the good old days, would have been in the bargain bin. Although not poorly written, the plot is full of holes and the sex scenes are just gratuitous. Maybe good for a quick beach read, but that is about all. I hate I wasted $13.99 on such an inferior book. 25


Eh3 star

Formulaic, and I dare say, a little boring. Love SB but her new stories feel like recycled old stories. 35

Great book5 star

This was a wonderful book. Kept your attention and had lots of twists and turn. Great reading ! 55


Clinical Trials for Whom?5 star

Even when you think you may know the ending early, it still surprises. Crashes don’t always have to be deadly. A little mystery, a little sex, a great story. 55


Tailspin3 star

Predictable. I found it boring and stopped about halfway through. Sorry to be so negative but I expected more out of this author. Save your money. 35


Great plot twist4 star

I didn’t see it coming...the twist that is. Good story, interesting topics. It’s not a who done it, and I had decided the “suspense” was who would get the drug, then an unexpected twist. Well done. 45


Another Great Book!5 star

Sandra Brown never disappoints...I was hooked from the first page! 55
