In this, the eighth book in the bestselling Charlie Parker mystery series, Charlie and Drake are off to Scotland to fly a helicopter contract at the offshore oil rigs in the North Sea, where they find that the helicopter operators are embroiled in an ongoing battle with boat owners. Meanwhile, at the castle where they are staying, Charlie finds herself helping the lord of the manor when his grandson is kidnapped.

She has her hands full, trying to keep her attention on her flying duties, while trying to convince the castle's owners that she doesn't want to become involved in the many mysteries surrounding the place.

online - Gabrielle Nelson
A friend of Charlie and her husband with a contract to fly employees back and forth to oil rigs in the sea, gets called home to see to an ill family member, and has Charlie and her husband take over to fulfill his contract. I have only a few pages left. Took time off last night to read another book - will finish Connie’s tonight. I LOVE her books!!! Her writing style is terrific. I want to rush out and buy every single book of hers that I haven’t yet read!
