Man from the Sky Book Review

I have a short story to share with you that is quite different from what I normally read but it sounded like an interesting little book so I decided to read it and it's full of questions and whys as to what makes people do some of the crazy things they do and it's actually a very good story to read and shouldn't take you long to read. The book is called Man from the Sky written by Danny Wynn.
Would you risk your life for a stranger?  
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. 
Like I said earlier, it's a great little book to read and it's about an older man who lives on a mountain and he rescues a man who parachutes out of a plane that crashes.
Unfortunately, the man, Stefan, has a backpack full of cocaine that is not his and for some odd reason, Jaime, a 73 year old man decides to help him start over and get his life back on track.
There are reasons why Jaime is doing this and I don't want to spoil the whole short story because it is a nice little book and if I say too much, it gives the whole story away. It is a perspective into someone who has lived his life alone and decides for once in his life he wants to have a little fun.
Read what happens when his fun turns into something else.
Happy Reading!

I might do something out of character for a stranger. It would all depend on the reason.
