Specter of an Accident is set against the backdrop of Access Air flight 41 from Houston to Pittsburgh The main character is an emotionally distraught twirty-two-year-old Civil Servant named Alexander LaRae, a man whose life is an emotional wreck. Haunted by the memory of his recently-deceased wife, reality has left Alex to be both father and mother to his two young daughters. Alex's job as an air traffic controller does nothing to alleviate his anxiety level. At the workings of his high school friend, Matt Johnson, Alex takes a jaunt to his and Matt's old high school stomping ground because Matt has arranged for a little meeting between his friend and Jill Murray, who happens to be Matt's ex-wife. On the flight to the steel city, Alex meets up with Captain Douglas Rayborn, a pilot that is less than two years from retirement and Charlie O'brien, a good-natured jokester pilot who also exists as an emotional time bomb. Fate has them meeting again and the three men come across evidence that the accident of flight 41 was no accident at all. The double cross, that is instigated by a powerful drug lord, leads to murder and a colossal act of terrorism on U.S. soil. A fatal piece of the puzzle, however, ends up in Charlie's possession and the chase begins. Amidst a stolen F117 Nighthawk, a hijacked Boeing 767, and numerous attempts on the foursome's lives, Alex and Jill manage to find love. Or do they? You'll have to read the book to find out the unpredictable ending. Specter of an Accident is wall-to-wall excitement peppered with passion. The reader will be rewarded by the smart, witty, and thought-provoking plot.
