As an airplane aficionado and a fan of the Avro Arrow, Mara Steps In was always going to be my favourite story in this collection of stories about crime, criminals, and the sleuths who track them down.
Mara’s character is a ton of fun who doesn’t blink when the punches fly. She ducks her head and hits back in a 1930’s hard driving style with fists and legs.
And she needs to let those fists fly when an engineer is blackmailed for the secrets he holds on a “what-ifs never die” airplane project that defined the youth and drive of a nation, and the loss that came.
When you’re feeling the need to track down criminals or even contemplating your own criminal actions, pick up this little collection of surprises from the Crime Writers of Canada.
