Summary

There’s been a public disaster, and someone wants to sweep it under the rug. A journalist is asking questions, and she stumbles across another story, from several years ago. Any connection seems like pure speculation – but then her family is threatened. A short thriller playing on two historical events.

Journalist Laura Schreiner faces a painful decision. She has asked too many questions, and now the lives of her children are in danger.

A catastrophe has taken place, and a curiously large number of people care remarkably little about investigating it. The ambitious young journalist isn’t going to take it lying down. During her research, she meets someone who tries to convince her that there is a connection to another unresolved drama. It might just be wild speculation – but her children have been kidnapped. Whoever is behind it is powerful and ruthless.

This short thriller draws the pieces of its puzzle from the mix of clues and theories surrounding a plane crash more than 30 years ago.

This is a work of fiction. Although it is set against a backdrop of historical events, the plot is entirely the product of the author’s imagination.
