Takeoff

(2018)
(The first book in the Seth Walker series)
A novel by

 
 
High-octane action, celebrity glamour, and endless possibilities for danger meet in this fast-paced debut for fans of John Sandford and Lee Child.

Still reeling from a devastating personal tragedy, air marshal turned investigator Seth Walker embarks on his first case. All he has to do is accompany female pop star Max Magic to Los Angeles and deliver her to the FBI. But when their routine flight ends in a hail of gunfire at LAX, Walker has no choice but to take the frightened diva on the run.

After a second attack leaves him battered and bloody, Walker realizes he cannot trust the FBI. To keep his client alive, he must use a patchwork of trusted aviation contacts to get her home to Austin, where the key suspects await.

But as they race to stay one step ahead of their deadly pursuers, the biggest danger of all may be what they're heading toward-the dark secrets that Max herself has been keeping...

Praise for this book

"Joseph Reid is a blazing new talent in the action-thriller arena. Takeoff does exactly that from page one, and it doesn’t land until the end. You’ll be breathless!" - Raymond Benson

"Takeoff is a blast. From the first explosive scene to the last page, this story pins you to your seat and never lets you go. Seth Walker, the hero of this riveting tale, is a man worthy of many books. It’s a good thing he’s so well-armed with highly unique skills and street smarts and a charming wit, because Seth is on the frontlines in a very dangerous world. My money’s on this guy in the battles to come." - James W Hall

"Joseph Reid’s novel Takeoff is aptly named. This fast-paced novel takes off with a bang, and only gains speed from there. Reid’s protagonist, federal air marshal Seth Walker, is much more than a sky cowboy. When not saving lives (or taking them), Walker works on circuit drawings. Those drawings have earned him a number of patents, and might be the key to a new life, that is if Walker can survive his current travails, as well as past baggage. Assigned to guard sixteen-year-old pop phenom sensation Max Magic, Walker finds himself in the middle of deadly power struggle. To keep his charge alive, Walker needs to navigate currents most treacherous, and distinguish the good guys from the bad guys. Reid writes like a seasoned pro, and yet this is his first novel. I am looking forward to more." - Alan Russell

"Fast paced and adrenaline filled, Takeoff is a wild ride that never lets up for a single moment. A thrilling debut by a terrific new storyteller. Joseph Reid is a name to know!" - Chad Zunker
