Description

An innocent math professor runs for his life as teams of hitmen try to prevent publication of their government’s dark history.

College professor Sam Teagarden stumbles upon a decades-old government cover-up when an encoded document mysteriously lands in his in-box, followed by a cluster of mini-drones programmed to kill him.

That begins a terrifying flight from upstate New York, to Washington, to Key West as Teagarden must outfox teams of hitmen equipped with highly sophisticated technology. While a fugitive, he races to decode the journal, only to realize the dreadful truth—it’s the reason he’s being hunted because it details criminal secrets committed by the U.S. in the 20th Century.

If he survives and publishes the decoded diary, he’ll be a heroic whistle blower. But there is no guarantee. He may also end up dead.

Praise for FLIGHT OF THE FOX:

“Flight of the Fox is an explosively paranoid thriller that pays homage to classics of the genre. Basnight delivers nonstop action and an everyman hero to root for.” —Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author

“Basnight’s novel does double duty. It’s both a fast-paced and furious thriller and a thought provoking commentary on a government gone wild. Read it.” —Reed Farrel Coleman, New York Times bestselling author of What You Break

“Gray Basnight has written a clever, inventive, gripping, suspenseful tale that’ll have you up nights until you reach the final page. Skillfully weaving fact with fiction, Flight of the Fox taps into our worst nightmares about the potential excesses of power.” —Charles Salzberg, author of the award-nominated Henry Swann mysteries and Second Story Man

“Flight of the Fox is a quick-paced story that puts you in the passenger seat of a thrilling adventure featuring, cyber and techno villains, and a fight for justice. Great action thriller!” —Jerri Williams, retired FBI agent and author of Pay To Play

From Publishers Weekly

May 21, 2018 – One day in the near future, mathematics professor Sam Teagarden, the hero of this intriguing if cumbersome thriller from Basnight (The Cop with the Pink Pistol), receives a file containing "a series of encoded entries handwritten in an old spiral notebook" from FBI archives librarian Stuart Shelbourn. Dating from decades ago, the entries have never been deciphered, and Stuart thinks Sam, who once worked for the CIA as a cryptologist, might like to take a crack at them. Soon afterward, Sam survives a drone attack on his home in Bethel, N.Y., and flees to New York City, where he's hunted by cops and eventually becomes the target of three black ops agents. Meanwhile, Sam figures out that he possesses an explosive cache of letters from FBI agent Clyde Tolson, the reputed lover of J. Edgar Hoover, to the FBI director. In the first chapter, Basnight hints strongly at the shameful secrets revealed in the letters. He also telegraphs the likely outcome of Sam's showdown with the black ops agents. The execution falls short of the high concept, but Jason Bourne fans will have some fun.
