When that detective disappears, a crime boss goes free. And the LPPD is forever changed. Called in to investigate the wreckage of the missing detective''s plane, Frank Harriman is given a set of cold cases that have suddenly become white hot.

Flight is a heart-pounding marriage of Jan Burke''s "intricate plotting" (Washington Times), "chilling suspense" (Clive Cussler), and trademark "crisp, crackling prose" (Library Journal) that will thrill newcomers and veteran Burke fans, cover to cover.
