I was chatting with my acquaintance Bruce today about an airplane he’s considering buying in southern California, and somehow the conversation turned to his visit to the renowned skydiving center at Perris Valley, California.
“I landed there one time,” I said, describing the unusual indoor skydiving facility located on the field.
“Did you go there to skydive, Greg?” he asked.
“Oh no,” I said, “that’s a whole different story.” Here, for Bruce’s reading pleasure and yours, is “Vulture’s Prey,” first published in March, 2005.
