Bill Scanlon is known as the "man who saved the airline business" after he bought Nor'easter and turned it into the profit making Majestic Airlines. Alex Shanahan, the new Operations Manager for majestic at Logan Airport used to hold a staff position.
She left the corporate world of airlines, lured by the dark arts of private investigation. Now Alex Shanahan is stirring up a cold case with global implications. Years after she dumped him for a younger man, the scheming ex-wife of Alex's partner, Harvey Baltimore, returns for an unexpected visit. While Alex tries to figure out why Rachel is back, another mystery begins to unfold halfway around the world. Four years after a bloody, high-profile airline hijacking, personal effects belonging to the victims are found in a terrorist safe house. The discovery of this chilling time capsule triggers a chain reaction that leads straight back to Rachel. By the time Alex has untangled Rachel's lies, she will be on the run from the Russian Mafia, caught in the web of a global vigilante group, and forced to take a reluctant trip into her partner's past -- where she will find the key to solving the mystery, but also learn painful lessons about holding on, letting go, and why some keys should never be used.
On her way to Detroit for a new job with an upstart airline, Alex Shanahan is detoured to Miami after the death of her friend John McTavish. There, Alex connects John's murder to the black-market of used airplane parts passed off as new. The man behind the scam doesn't want to be found--and he's not about to let Alex cause any turbulence.
