Exhilarating crime plot unfolds above ground in Grapevine author’s hardback novel
GRAPEVINE, Texas — Deceit and drama take flight in the nationwide hardback release of author George Dalton’s intriguing novel, “The Sound of Silence.”
The scariest sound a pilot can hear is silence — because it is often followed by a loud crash! In “The Sound of Silence,” Jim is a pilot whose two loves are his wife, Allie, and his new Bonanza airplane. Tim is a timid 16-year-old with a hard-nosed father who tries to rewrite his sordid failed past through his son by forcing the boy to play football and to take flying lessons — things the boy really hates doing. Harold Johnson is a young engineer, who discovers that the foundry where he works is intentionally producing sub-standard parts that can go into airplane engines. Should the parts fail, airplanes will crash and lives will be lost. The CEO has ordered him to keep his mouth shut. Furthermore, his wife is pregnant, so he can’t get fired now. He needs the insurance for her.
When Jim’s engine blows up causing his new Bonanza to crash, he is on a mission to find out why. As more airplane engines blow up, Johnson is torn. Who can he tell? “The Sound of Silence” lays a hair-raising tale of intrigue, deceit, greed and love lost.
