Alex Shanahan is on her way to a new job with a Detroit start-up airline when the death of her friend, John McTavish, takes her on a detour to Miami. The trip turns deadly when Alex connects John's murder to the lucrative world of black-market airplane parts: used parts that are illegally reworked, repainted and sold as new.Now Alex must walk into the darkest corner of the airline business she loves, the sordid underbelly of scavengers and chop shops, where profits are valued over the lives of a planeload of passengers - and murder isn't too far to go when millions are at stake.In a world where one faulty part can bring down an airliner and catastrophe is an acceptable risk, Alex must tread carefully, because every step she takes could be her last . . .Book 2 in the Alex Shanahan series.
