Set in the seventies, Ground Rush starts out as a quiet, contemplative little tale set in the cloistered calm and pastorally meditative environment of a sport skydiving drop-zone. The pace of the story picks up a bit with the introduction of sex, drugs, fast cars, illegal firearms, organized crime, disorganized crime, and a generous helping of gratuitous violence - building to an exploration of the fine line between preemptive self-defense and premeditated murder.

A little slow-going at first if one isn't familiar with skydiving jargon, but the detailed description of a dive in the beginning is still exciting if you haven't jumped out of an airplane before. The pace picks up after a few chapters and really moves along. All the makings of an action flick - sex, drugs, no rock'n'roll, but car chases, mob figures, and guns. The ordinary-guy, skydiving addict gets himself into a seemingly no-win situation. The novel is laced with some messaging on the futility and annoyance of prohibitions. All-in-all a good read.
