An ominous undercurrent runs through this account of the first parachute-free wingsuit landing. The listener is constantly aware that the fledgling extreme sport has seen deaths. In a soft-spoken voice, Adam Verner ticks off the dangers and relays the thoughts of the men who are vying for the ultimate jump. He also brings listeners the thrill of a nocturnal jump with no witnesses, reveling in the emotional highs that keep the wingsuit jumpers going. Listeners unfamiliar with the sport will get an extra dose of nail-biting tension. Those already familiar with the quest to be first to land without a chute will gain insight into these wingmen and the history behind their adventure.
