Book 1 of 3: Combined Operations
When her plane tries to come apart at apogee during a hijack, ballistic airline pilot Michelle Lauden handles the worst day she could imagine. When she gets down safely without losing any passengers or crew, though, she finds her troubles have just begun!
The ground below is as unsafe as the air above. The country she's landed in has just declared independence from the Federation. The Feds intended her passengers to be the first casualties in the impending war - and they're not happy she's survived to contradict their official narrative in the news.
The local government wants to find her to give her a medal. The Feds are hunting her to give her an unmarked grave. As they both close in, Michelle's running out of options and time. The only people able to protect her, and hide her tracks, are an accident investigation team on loan from the Federation's enemies... the same enemies who sent her hijackers in the first place. And they have their own plans for her, and the country she's in!
