A mysterious femme fatale plunges a corporate aircraft salesman into a world of deception and murder. Josh Mitchell, the handsome, successful salesman for California-based Barnett Air, meets his theoretical match in Pamela Morrow, a stunning blonde he befriends on a cross-country business flight. The romantic buildup leads to an unfulfilling tryst at his Carmel hotel, but Mitchell still believes he's met the woman of his dreams until she disappears and the dead body of her apparent doppelganger washes up on a nearby beach the next morning. Soon he finds himself the primary suspect in the murder of Dianne Lane, a wealthy San Francisco museum curator. The mystery eventually leads Mitchell to Natchez, Miss., where the lives of the two women intersected. Along the way, he finds himself tailed by a mysterious assassin and a convoy of FBI agents, learns that his employer has set him up and must go into hiding while he pieces together the identity puzzle.
Michael Frase grabs your interest from the very beginning and holds you by the seat of your pants until the very suspenseful and climatic end. In both of his novels, he proves his ability to stay steps ahead of you. Just when you think you have Josh's fate established... you don't. It's this type of writing style I treasure finding in an author.
