Mystery Woman Sleuth | Mystery Hard Boiled
A full-fledged pilot for several years, Sharon McCone is
due for the biannual flight review required by the FAA.
Her former flight instructor, Matty Wildress, invites her
to fly up to the small Sonoma County town of Los Alegres
for the evaluation. The test isn't due for several months,
however, and McCone suspects Matty has more than safe
flying on her mind. She's right. Matty's live-in lover
John Seabrook, has been gone for a week, abandoning his
small son, Zach. In a desperate letter John entrusts the
boy to Matty's care, urging them to go into hiding
immediately. But Matty is a professional and determined to
perform in the last aerobatic air show of the year.
Despite the extra security, something goes horribly wrong.
Suddenly, an ordinary missing person case becomes a
personal vendetta. Together with her lover, Hy Ripinsky,
McCone bypasses the authorities to hunt down the man
responsible for Matty's death. Her search will take her
across the country as she uncovers the startling details
of John Seabrook's past. From San Francisco to Florida to
Arkansas to northern Minnesota, she'll unravel an
insidious web of corruption between a major corporation
and high government, where power and profit are
supreme...and murder is a tool of the trade. And somewhere
in the midst of it all, she'll confront a killer with a
heart as cold and dark as the northern night.
