Overview

Winner of the 2013 Daphne du Maurier Mainstream Mystery/Suspense Award and the 2013 Maggie Award for Novel with Strong Romantic Elements.

A reclusive boss.
An unemployed pilot.
One devil in default.

When Brazilian gem dealer Maximilian Furst stops making payments on his fifty million dollar business jet, "Hawker" Dunlop, reclusive owner of a high-end recovery company, sends a resourceful team to Rio to repossess the aircraft.

Dunlop's newest hire, ex-military pilot Amelia "Jet" Walczynski, has the perfect skills for infiltrating Furst's inner circle and flying away the targeted plane. The assignment appears straightforward until Jet discovers Furst is a sociopath and knows she is after his aircraft. Her promised support team, a Greek lawyer avenging his brother's death, a con man who sidelines as their scout, and a mechanic who paints her nails to match the country of operation, appear a hindrance rather than help. Jet finds it hard to play nice with her teammates when their private agendas put her life at risk. Yet, the closer she gets to Furst and the plane, the more she and her team will have to rely on each other to complete the repossession.

Repossessed by Sandy Parks is a good read. With a background as a test pilot and commercial pilot I’m extremely critical of aviation related stories, however this one is outstanding. While being less technical than a Clancy novel, the author clearly understands aircraft operations. In addition the novel offers a fast paced plot with twists that will keep you guessing. The characters are also fascinating. Brought together by their secretive boss, each one comes with their agenda that seems to compete with the job they are hired to do. In the end, all of their skills are required to achieve success. I can’t wait for the next book in this series.

I didn't know anything about aircraft repossession before reading this book. Now, I feel like I've actually participated in one! Sandy Parks does a great job of explaining how it all works, and fits the details in well with the flow of the story. The repoteam features some quirky and memorable characters, the villain is creepily evil, and Jet's mysterious boss makes you wonder just what he might be hiding. The suspense level was just right throughout the book, keeping you wanting to read more to see what will happen next. I enjoyed this a lot!

Repossessed is full of entertaining and suspenseful situations and quirky characters. The book features a strong and resourceful heroine facing a series of obstacles; some imagined (created by her mysterious employer) and others very real as created by the creepy antagonist, Maximilan Furst. This is a really fun thriller that leaves you wanting to read more.
