AOT #328: David Freed Podcasts Flat Spin
David Freed owns a small plane and was a specialist in both law enforcement and military affairs. During an eighteen-year reporting career as an investigative journalist for the Los Angeles Times, he was an individual finalist for the Pulitzer Prize’s gold medal for Public Service, the highest award in American journalism, and later shared a Pulitzer Prize for the newspaper’s coverage of the 1992 Rodney King riots. He reported from the Middle East during Operation Desert Storm, and holds an active security clearance from the US Department of Defense. Freed reads from and discusses his debut thriller Flat Spin. Transcending worlds of murder, aviation and international counter-terrorism, Flat Spin resonates with a veracity that only an author who knows his subject first hand can deliver.
