This isn't John Nance. It's not the best writing in the world, in term of elegant turns of phrase, but Block is a good story teller who obviously knows aviation, and for the purposes of this novel, that's good enough. The plot had plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader on his/her toes, and it's a page turner that will keep you up all night, reading "just one more chapter" to find out what happens next.

Faulkree
Not one of his best. Plodding story line.

Dalallador
Not one of his best

Great book. It kept a flow that was easy to follow with some twists along the way. Good easy reading. I recommend this to anyone. Entertaining for all.

Landaron
I found Open Skies a good read with an easy storyline and some good aviation methods to consider.
Another good yarn thanks Thomas

Agamaginn
What can I say. Another great book by Thomas Block. Once you read one you will want to read all his books.

Written by someone who has an insiders knowledge of Commercial flying. And, it was a fun story. A pilot can read it and enjoy it.

Like author Block in real life, "Skies" leading man and ex-pilot Jack Sawyer has hung up his wings; and now runs a private-eye firm he inherited from a friend. That he has little skills to do so is revealed by the rag-tag band of helpers on this case: his tennis partner Max, his soon-to-be-ex-wife Susan, and Tracy, the secretary of the guy who hired him. The issue at hand involves the death of a Trans-Continental Airlines co-pilot who is crushed to death in the scissors-lift of an airlines service truck (ouch!). Though ruled an accident by the authorities, the company suspects foul play, and through a contact with Susan, hires Sawyer to investigate. Soon Jack's sleuthing brings bullets whizzing by him and Max, turning the matter more serious in a hurry. Pursuing thin clues at the airline, Jack stumbles on to what looks like a drug-smuggling run gone bad, as some strange flights by one of the firm's 737s don't seem to make sense. By story end, a thrilling in-flight fight yields a big win for Jack over the bad guys.
Thomas Block hit it big with the best-seller "Mayday" he co-authored with his more famous friend Nelson DeMille. Since then, his solo efforts have been mainly pleasant but not particularly thrilling titles involving aviation technology and related mysteries. To us, this 200-page book fails to deliver enough plot complexity, enough intrigue, enough relationship between characters (what romance there is, is pretty silly), or just enough solid detective work to move readers from indifferent to excited.
That "Skies" was so difficult to find speaks to a very limited production run; and the 1990 publication date, with no books in the bibliography since, suggest this might well be Block's swan song. While we don't consider this or his other efforts bad per se, the author just doesn't seem to generate enough heat or enthusiasm in the reader to justify the light entertainment versus the dollars spent to unearth this item in hardback. Successful airline thrillers form a pretty small genre, despite six attempts from Block. We might not be able to do better, but rate this novel as little more than a curiosity item.
