Review – Going Ballistic

Dorothy Grant puts out her best work so far in an action and character driven piece entitled “Going Ballistic

When her plane tries to come apart at apogee during a hijack, ballistic airline pilot Michelle Lauden handles the worst day she could imagine. After getting down without losing any passengers or crew, though, she finds her troubles have just begun!

The country she’s landed in has just declared independence from the Federation. The Feds intended her passengers to be the first casualties in the impending war – and they’re not happy she’s survived to contradict their official narrative in the news.

The local government wants to find her to give her a medal. The Feds are hunting her to give her an unmarked grave. As they both close in, Michelle’s running out of options and time. The only people able to protect her are an accident investigation team on loan from the Federation’s enemies… the same enemies who sent her hijackers in the first place.

And they have their own plans for her, and the country she’s in!

Going Ballistic weaves a strong female lead into a fast-paced, engaging plot that rarely stops to take a deep breath.  This story grabs you by the throat and keeps your attention until the last sentence.

Mrs. Grant’s ability to bring characters to life in a very small number of words makes this story move along without creating cardboard-cutouts.  Michelle is strong and capable, but also has the emotional depth to fall apart when she needs to.  Blondie, one of the male supporting characters, is there to help, but it is Michelle’s story and Grant leads us through it with a practiced hand.

Going Ballistic is great for laying in a hammock on a summer day or by the fire during a winter night.  Just make sure you have time to read it through, because you’ll be trying to guess what comes next until you can return to it.
