Indiana Jones and the Sky Pirates


In London, Indiana Jones is called to an emergency meeting. Mysterious sky craft have been ravaging the shipping lanes, making off with a fortune in diamonds, bonds, and raw materials. Unable to detect how the craft are powered, experts have come up with a frightening hypothesis--involving the use of psychokinetic levitation. To get to the truth, Indy must search through a labyrinth of archaeological information reaching back four thousand years. But as he and his team move from Africa to Tibet to the American Southwest, they discover something even more astounding. A clandestine organization is fast becoming an evil, world-dominating power--and the only way to stop it is in a high-tech, no-holds-barred battle on land . . . and in the air! Hide synopsis

The Sky Pirates

by FanOfTimeLifeBooks on Aug 13, 2010

Indiana Jones and the Sky Pirates is the seventh of twelve Indiana Jones novels published in the 1990s. This series, officially licensed by Lucasfilm, is inspired by the Indiana Jones character who first appeared in 1981 with the movie Raiders of the Lost Ark. Rob MacGregor authored the first six books. Martin Caidin wrote the seventh and eighth books including The Sky Pirates. Max McCoy wrote the last four books in the series. The events of this story take place in 1930. Indy is chosen by top intelligence officers of Britain and the United States to be part of an international team investigating the mysterious hijackings of ships and planes. Suspecting a leak in this team, Indy sets into motion a series of events designed to reveal who the traitor is. At the same time, this team comes to the conclusion that an evil organization seeking world domination is behind the mysterious hijackings. The story culminates with a battle in the air. I have mixed opinions on this book. The first two-thirds are somewhat sluggish and short on action and adventure. However, the last one-third is fairly exciting. Caidin introduces some new and interesting characters in the book, but he left out Marcus Brody who is one of my favorite characters. There is not much archaeology in this book, but I did like how Caidin incorporated aviation history into the story. Thus, I do recommend this book, but with some reservations.
