Man from the Sky by Danny Wynn #Literary #AmReading #Excerpt

They entered Palma from the west and drove along the wide seafront boulevard, a low concrete divider down the middle, palm trees lining the way and the immense harbor on their right. A stunning number of boats, thousands—big, very big, small, almost all of them white—docked at one marina after another. A forest of masts and antennas. They drove past enormous piers with towering cranes rising above them, freighters alongside. Jumbo ferries were at dock as well. On the city side of the curving boulevard were mostly nondescript modern buildings, streets and avenues leading like spokes into the city. A cathedral rose prominently in front of them, farther along the enormous bay. Not a beautiful city, but bustling and fairly clean. With sunshine and sea, too.

How far would you go to add excitement to a life you felt was boring and meaningless?
For seventy-three-year-old Jaime, the answer takes him by surprise. Accustomed to a lonely life high up in the mountains on the western coast of Mallorca, his dull routine is suddenly shattered when a man parachutes from a plane and lands nearby. The plane crashes; the man lives.
It’s a drug smuggling operation gone bad. But Stefan, the man from the sky, has escaped with eight kilos of cocaine in a gym bag. Jaime brings Stefan home and is soon entangled in Stefan’s attempts to sell the cocaine and start a new life.
As they dodge Parisian drug dealers and corrupt Mallorcan police, Jaime’s search for excitement and Stefan’s resolve to find stability lead them both down dangerous paths.
