A mysterious woman fleeing an unknown terror boards the wrong plane at San Francisco International and disappears into the heart of the country. Freddy Ferguson, a troubled detective with a violent past, believes she's the only living witness to a crime that has captivated the nation.
Sifting through the wreckage of her past, he begins to understand who she's running from, and why. Now he must track her down before her pursuers can silence her for good.
Gate 76 by Andrew Diamond
When Freddy Ferguson witnesses a mysterious woman appear to board one flight, only to race toward another gate at the last minute, he had no idea she would become his gut-deep fixation. Why didn’t she board the plane she was escorted to? That plane that was blown out of the sky only minutes later. Was that fear or determination on her face? Does she know something that could yet get her killed?
As a private detective working for the airline, it’s his job to investigate the passenger manifest for possible suspects. The plane was full, they said. All passengers were accounted for, they said. No one survived, they said, but Freddy knows better and he is determined to find out who she was, what she was running from and where she went…
Hard-boiled mystery at its grittiest, GATE 76 by Andrew Diamond is the story of a man with a dark past, who knows that even justice cannot be trusted, but sometimes you need to work the angles and only then will the truth come out. Corrupt politicians, dirty cops and secrets uncovered add all the elements of a great suspense as we become wrapped up in the story of a man who cares, in spite of his past, or perhaps because of it.
High on detail and plot twists, the suspense ratchets high in this complex tale! If you like your heroes a little rough around the edges, hardened by life, yet still able to do the right thing at any cost and your villains hiding deep in the shadows of a labyrinth of deceit and crime, GATE 76 could be just what you're looking for.
