Four aviation thrillers from an author who “melds the maze of today’s airline industry with intrigue and mystery” (John J. Nance). The friendly skies are anything but in these expertly crafted novels of suspense set in the cutthroat world of the airline industry, now available in one volume. In Hard Landing—called “an edge-of-your seat thriller that sweeps you up and carries you along for the ride” by Lisa Gardner—Alex Shanahan takes over Majestic Airlines at Logan International Airport, and discovers that her predecessor’s mysterious death may not have been suicide. In Parts Unknown, black market airplane parts put countless lives at risk, including Alex’s. In the “action-filled” First Class Killing, Alex goes undercover as a flight attendant to bust up a mile-high prostitution ring (The Boston Globe). And in The Pandora Key, a very cold case heats up, and puts Alex in the crosshairs of the Russian mob, as acclaimed author Lynne Hinton brings “the whole shebang to a taut, satisfying conclusion” (Publishers Weekly).

Every business has a dark side. “An intricate and explosive thriller…evocative prose..[a] tightly woven, compelling read. One of the year’s most notable thrillers.” —PUBLISHERS WEEKLY Alex Shanahan accepts a new job with a Detroit start-up airline when the death of her friend John McTavish takes her on a detour to Miami. But her trip turns perilous when Alex connects John's murder to the lucrative world of black-market airplane parts. Now Alex must walk into the darkest corner of the business she loves, where profits are valued over the lives of a planeload of passengers—and murder is the solution when millions are at stake. In a world where one faulty part can bring down an airline and catastrophe is an acceptable risk, Alex must tread carefully, because every step she takes could be her last. “Fast-moving and as fascinating as a natural disaster, the novel is suspenseful and electric and has the appeal of any insider story. Ms. Heitman is a former airline employee of 14 years, and her words ring true.” —THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS “Truly excellent…the best white-knuckle ride I’ve taken in a long time.” —Lee Child, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of ONE SHOT “[PARTS UNKNOWN] needs no blurbs…the book can lift off for itself.” —THE BOSTON GLOBE “Heitman melds the maze of today’s airline industry with intrigue and mystery.” —John Nance
