DEADLY DIVERSIONS is a murder/mystery novel set in the unique world of charter and all-cargo airlines and the crews that fly their aircraft.
After three captains-working for different companies-die in unusual circumstances, alarm bells go off at the International Pilots Federation's headquarters. Enter Don Carling, a private investigator and former airline pilot who is summoned to look into their deaths. He travels to the European cities where the victims died to see if the verdicts of accidental death were valid, and if not, to look for a possible connection.
His investigation stalls, until another captain is killed. His murder provides Carling with solid clues to support his growing conspiracy theory. Pieces of the puzzle are still missing as Flight 213, a 747 freighter, takes off from London bound for Toronto with, Carling fears, a potential fifth victim in command.
Interpol, Scotland Yard, the Russian mafia, and a femme fatale all play key roles in the cleverly-crafted plot, one that gains momentum with every chapter and ends with a pressure-packed and heart-stopping diversion. The final twist might lead the reader, with the benefit of hindsight, to ponder if there is more truth than fiction to this gripping tale…
