Both Ends of the Night by Marcia Muller

Book Description

A full-fledged pilot for several years, Sharon McCone is due for the biannual flight review required by the FAA. Her former flight instructor, Matty Wildress, invites her to fly up to the small Sonoma County town of Los Alegres for the evaluation. The test isn't due for several months, however, and McCone suspects Matty has more than safe flying on her mind. She's right. Matty's live-in lover John Seabrook, has been gone for a week, abandoning his small son, Zach. In a desperate letter John entrusts the boy to Matty's care, urging them to go into hiding immediately. But Matty is a professional and determined to perform in the last aerobatic air show of the year. Despite the extra security, something goes horribly wrong. Suddenly, an ordinary missing person case becomes a personal vendetta. Together with her lover, Hy Ripinsky, McCone bypasses the authorities to hunt down the man responsible for Matty's death. Her search will take her across the country as she uncovers the startling details of John Seabrook's past. From San Francisco to Florida to Arkansas to northern Minnesota, she'll unravel an insidious web of corruption between a major corporation and high government, where power and profit are supreme...and murder is a tool of the trade. And somewhere in the midst of it all, she'll confront a killer with a heart as cold and dark as the northern night.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » The insular world of small airports, small planes, stunt flying, and flight instruction is explored in exhaustive detail in p.i. Sharon McCone's 18th case (The Broken Promise Land, 1996, etc.). Sharon has become a licensed pilot under the tutelage of tender-tough instructor Matty Windress at los Alegres Municipal Airport, a short hop from San Francisco, where Sharon runs her investigative agency. Matty has lived for the last year with her boyfriend, John Seabrook, owner of a tree farm, and his young son Zachary. Now Seabrook has vanished, leaving Zachary behind, and Matty hires Sharon to find him. Matty knows nothing of Seabrook's past, but a letter surfaces within days instructing her to immediately withdraw the $70,000 he's wired into her bank account, then to take Zachary and disappear, telling no one her whereabouts. Matty balks - insists on carrying through her commitment to perform in an upcoming air show, and is killed when her plane crashes to the ground, sabotaged despite the efforts of Sharon and her lover Hy Ripinsky, once a flight instructor, to oversee the plane's safety. A saddened Sharon stashes Zachary with an old lawyer friend and gets to the business of dredging up Seabrook's life, using nephew Mick's computer skills; questioning every appropriate source; hopscotching the country in Hy's small plane or on commercial lines. There are more killings before she and Hy track down the root source of all the mayhem - Stifling Aviation, a manufacturing firm in Arkansas; its board of directors; its long-missing former head Duncan Stirling, and an old, still reverberating scandal. An overextended story that rambles all over the map - literally and otherwise - but still manages to excite and hold the reader's attention. Another sturdy performance from an old hand.
