The Covered Bet

The Covered Bet

Seattle air charter pilot Diana Gunn needs courage. Her husband trashed their marriage. Their lives are now under serious re construction. Plus, they support a teenage grandson abandoned by both his mom and their gambling addicted son who, at thirty nine, still has a death grip on resenting his father. Diana is desperate for her splintered family to be whole.

The son, trying to compensate for a lifetime of being a lousy dad, wins a car in a blackjack game, and gives it to grandson Kaleb, destroying Diana’s efforts as well as introducing him to the glamour of gambling and the killing world of organized crime. The Syndicate needs the family to disappear and puts out a hit on them all. A friend is murdered. When Diana flies sightseers over the Washington coast, her airplane is ripped by bullets from a fishing boat.

Diana’s son and grandson disappear, and to find them, Diana and her husband enlist the help of a friend, a Fijian Seattle P.D. police officer with unique abilities who travels across time and space realities.  In the ghostly, rat infested caverns beneath Seattle streets, the father and son, trapped together, discover treacherous secrets. Will they die before being able to reveal them? Diana prepares to give her life for her sons, but will that be enough to heal and reclaim her family?
