Summary

Female sleuth Charlie Parker finds herself pulled back into her family's history when she discovers a cryptic message written in her father's leather-bound notebook hidden in the attic. As she begins to question the events leading up to the plane crash that killed her parents 15 years earlier, Charlie finds herself and others in mortal danger. And her father's profession as a scientist at top-secret Sandia Labs during the Cold War seems to be at the root of the trouble she uncovers.

Booklist Review

Upon returning to her New Mexico home after visiting her fiancein Hawaii, private investigator Charlie Parker discovers that her mother and father, who was a scientist at Sandia Labs, were killed in a suspicious small plane crash. When Charlie starts asking questions, a series of thefts ensues, and the body count climbs. She ultimately realizes that she must unravel the past to save her future. Despite its convoluted plot, which reaches back to the cold war, and its abrupt ending, this novel offers memorable details about flying and an edgy, paranoid atmosphere. Recommend this one to those who like the scientific mysteries of Camille Minichino. --John Rowen
