Mike Howard runs a small aviation museum, and, several decades later, his war-hero family still feels the sting of Lawson''s unpatriotic actions. When Mike is pressured by Lawson''s grandson, Jesse, to mount a search for the traitor''s corpse, his first instinct is to vehemently refuse. However, his scholarly instincts quickly get drawn into the hunt, and he soon realizes that there is much more to the story. As Mike''s corporate sponsors passionately lobby for him to stop stirring up old issues, it is made clear to him just how tangled the web of espionage has become.
Soon bodies are dropping like flies and Mike is forced on the run. He desperately unravels the threads of deceit, scrambling for the truth before his own life - and the lives of those he loves - are brutally added to the list of sacrificed men of conscience.
About the Author
He currently edits the Wet Their Whistles newsletter for animal water rights (solarsippers.com). He draws the popular humorous Animal Viewpoint Cartoons for newspapers. He continues to please his fans with new novels in his River Sunday Romance Mysteries collection. In his fiction he describes his recurring theme that human settlers since prehistoric times in the Chesapeake region have left a mist of legend and history that permeates its modern stories with a certain compelling truth.
At the same time he incorporates the stories of machines with those of their human owners. Each novel, located in the small town of River Sunday, Maryland, also records the continuing beautiful nature of the area. His writing portrays today's problems, conflicts, and memorable local characters with their loves and their combat with evil.
The novel revolves around the apparent treachery of Captain Lawson and the missing plane we was flying. On investigation the truth starts to unfold with far reaching consequences. When a big corporation want to hide or keep secrets it is amazing to what lengths they will go to and what / who they will pay to maintain that silence. But some people cannot be bought and will fight to the end for the truth.
I think the writer is brave for writing a novel about the corruption and the way that money can hide the real truth to the general public. This novel even though its based on fiction is very topical at the moment where a lot of secrets from the past are being uncovered and those held responsible are been held accountable.
The author is one of my favourites and his books are high on my reading list and always look forward to his next publication. The way that the author uses his expert knowledge of the places and the historic background of the people who live there are first class and add a realistic hint to the story line.
A real gem of a book about the little people taking on the corporate giants
