Aspen's notorious drug dealer is robbed of five kilos of Peruvian flake and $75,000 in cash. Nobody does that and lives to tell the tale. Twenty-one year-old Lee Shelby foolishly pulled off the heist. He's still breathing and wants to stay that way. Not that he wanted the drugs or the money. His goal is to save Laura!

Laura had been his girlfriend and when he couldn't commit to a closer relationship, she moved on and fell under the spell of said drug dealer. Before long, she was hooked on cocaine. Lee's goal with the theft is to trade the flake money for Laura. But before that can happen, Laura practically crawls to Lee after being severely beaten by the dealer.

So now we have the basis for this thoroughly enjoyable tale of drugs, mayhem, rescue, flight, a guard dog, a helping hand, and undying love. Lee meets some very interesting characters while escaping his inevitable fate if the dealer gets his hands on him. An author befriends him and offers all kinds of help. He ends up in a hand-made one-engine plane with a pilot who has never had a lesson or a license! That's a flight to have you kissing the ground afterward and to forever keep you there.

For a really fun read, don't miss Saving Laura by Jim Satterfield.
