DEADLY DIVERSIONS is a murder/mystery novel set in the unique world of all-cargo airlines and the crews that fly their planes.
When three airline captains die in mysterious mishaps on layovers in different European cities, alarm bells go off at the International Pilots Federation’s headquarters. Enter Don Carling, a private investigator and former airline pilot. His task is twofold: one, to determine if the accidental verdicts are valid, and two, look for any evidence the deaths are connected. There are disturbing similarities, he finds, but no concrete evidence of a link.
His investigation stalls…until a fourth captain is murdered, this time in London. The murder provides fresh leads, leads that supply Carling with clues to reinforce his growing conspiracy theory. But proving it is another matter, and key pieces of the puzzle are still missing as Flight 213, a 747 freighter, takes off from London bound for Toronto with, Carling fears, a potential fifth victim in command.
Interpol, Scotland Yard, the Russian Mafia, a femme fatale, and a colorful yet believable cast of characters all have roles in the cleverly crafted plot – one that gains momentum with every page and ends with an unforeseen and foreboding twist.
A twist that the reader, with the advantage of hindsight, might decide is more truth than fiction..
