***I was given an advance readers copy in exchange for honest feedback.*** The Cover-Up by Dana Griffin is an intelligently-written and suspenseful novel with a complex plot. It begins by shoving you in the scene of a commercial plane crash, witnessing it from the viewpoint of a LaGuardia air traffic controller. In Houston, Omega Airlines' pilot instructor, Kyle Masters, receives an emergency call, advising him he has been reassigned to be the representative for the airline in the crash investigation. Kyle's abrupt departure to NY to handle his new duties dumps his already brittle marriage on the teetering edge. When Kyle arrives at the crash site, he meets Lori Almond, the attractive NTSB assistant investigator in charge. Kyle and Lori dig into the investigation together, and quickly determine something isn't right. Investigators representing the various players--the FAA, the NTSB, Omega Airlines--begin to act scared and sketchy. Stories given by crew members and inspectors are suspect. Someone is hiding something. Kyle and Lori are determined to find out who and what it is. One witness dies unexpectedly. Then another person connected to the investigation dies mysteriously. Homicide isn't confirmed in either case, but Kyle and Lori have their doubts. Then the unimaginable happens. The investigation becomes personal and Kyle succumbs to a threat so painful, he's powerless to stop himself from doing what he does next. The Cover-Up is an action-packed book filled with a diverse cast of personalities and a storyline woven so thoughtfully, your head will ache from whiplash and still, you won't be able to put it down until you determine whodunit. The story is concocted with all the ingredients that make a book great: suspense, conspiracy, murder, humor, and love. Dana Griffin is a polished writer and I'm bouncing in my seat with impatience to read the sequel.
