"From a Boeing 767 emergency landing to heart-pounding helicopter ops, Menear weaves real-life accuracy into a story like none I've ever read." ~Bücker, Verified Reviewer

--Present Day--

Cleared by the NTSB of any fault when a mid-flight explosion demands a white-knuckle emergency landing of a Boeing jumbo jet, twenty-six-year-old pilot Samantha 'Danger Magnet' Starr heads to the Scottish Highlands for rest and relaxation.

But peace and serenity quickly fade when Sam rescues a boy named Charlie from being abducted by a political terrorist organization.

Arriving at the nearest police station with the intent of returning Charlie to his powerful and influential father, Sam discovers the police are in cahoots with the abductors, and she's the one being fingered for kidnapping.

Now, dodging terrorists, corrupt police, and haunted by her younger brother's kidnapping and murder years prior, Sam will do anything to protect Charlie in a thrilling Flight to Redemption.

About the Author

S.L. Menear is a retired airline pilot. US Airways hired Sharon in 1980 as their first female pilot, bypassing the flight engineer position. The men in her new-hire class gave her the nickname Bombshell. She flew Boeing 727s and 737s, DC-9s, and BAC 1-11 jet airliners and was promoted to captain in her seventh year.

Before her pilot career, Sharon worked as a water-sports model and then traveled the world as a flight attendant with Pan American World Airways.

Sharon has enjoyed flying antique airplanes, experimental aircraft, and Third-World fighter airplanes. Her leisure activities included scuba diving, powered paragliding, snow skiing, surfing, horseback riding, aerobatic flying, sailing, and driving fast cars and motorcycles.

Her beloved timber-shepherds, Pratt & Whitney, were her faithful companions for almost fourteen years, and she enjoyed riding her beautiful black and white paint stallion, Chief, who kept the mares happy, fathering several adorable foals on her mother's horse ranch in Texas.

Sharon has flown many of the airplanes in her debut novel, Flight to Redemption, Flight to Destiny, Triple Threat, and Vanished, Books One through Four in her Samantha Starr Thriller Series featuring a woman airline pilot.
