When: Thu., June 28, 7 p.m. 2012

If you still fondly recall the Top Gun days, you'll love David Freed's debut mystery, Flat Spin. Careening from Rancho Bonita to Los Angeles to Las Vegas to Oakland, this surprisingly humorous thriller stars Cordell Logan as a flight instructor with a dark past whose ex-wife commandeers his help to find out who murdered her most recent husband, who happens to be Logan's ex-buddy from their military days. Taking to the skies in his little old plane to hunt the killer, between clues Logan tries not to fall back in love with Savannah, The One Who Got Away -- unsuccessfully. Thrills, chills, bros, and romance: this book has it all. Freed reads on Thursday, June 28, at A Great Good Place for Books (6120 LaSalle Ave., Oakland). 7 p.m., free. 510-339-8210 or
