Event Details

Join Bookmans for short reading and discussion with Gray Basnight Author of Flight of the Fox. This event will include a short reading from the book and a Q&A followed by an opportunity to have your copy of Flight of the Fox signed by the author. Taking place Saturday, February 9th at 10:00 AM.

Flight of the Fox Synopsis: An innocent math professor tries to decode a mystery file that lands in his in-box while a team of hitmen chase him from the Catskill Mountains to NYC and down the East Coast. Their goal is to suppress dark government crimes from decades past.  His goal is for the truth to be told.  The action switches between the J. Edgar Hoover era and Professor Sam Teagarden’s decoding of the mystery file in 2019, in the midst of the 50th anniversary of the iconic Woodstock Festival.  As the professor runs for his life, armed only with his wits and intellect, he worries whether the truth will be told, and if he’ll be seen as a hero whistleblower or a pariah.  Or worse, will he end up dead?

Flight of the Fox is something of a love letter to the classic espionage thrillers of the Cold War. Easy-to-consume prose serves as commentary on the state of high-tech surveillance in American life… This is a fun, entertaining read that flies by faster than its own predatory drones. Part chase story and part political thriller… for anyone worried about the machinations of the US government, especially the FBI.” – Editor’s Pick by Foreward Reviews (July/August)

“An electrifying, propulsive and timely thriller… should shoot to the top of every bestseller list in the country… a tour de force of a government agency that’s so out of control it will do anything to protect itself… It’s a story that could have been ripped right out of yesterdays, todays, or tomorrows headlines… this gripping yarn about a black-ops unit… will keep you enthralled to the very last page.” – Mysterious Book Review (July)

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 of The Switch.

“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
