Brett Raven is an unlikely detective. He is a dentist and a private pilot who proves to be smart, resourceful, and courageous as he uses his dental forensic skills and aviation knowledge, to decipher the clues of a mysterious plane crash that killed his airplane co-owner in Baja, Mexico. He uncovers crime, deception, and betrayal, as he untangles a web surrounding what was initially labeled an “accident attributed to pilot error.” Brett discovers information leading him to believe his partner was involved in the trafficking of black market human organs from Mexico to the U.S. He also uncovers clues, which indicate the crash was not an accident. Although Brett solves the mystery surrounding the crash, he confronts both moral and ethical dilemmas with which he struggles to resolve.
Flight of Betrayal will be available in paperback and will be on sale at the Airport Shop at San Carlos Airport as well as amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com, and applestore.com.
