YUKON AUDIT
Ken Baird, author

WINNER — BEST THRILLER — 2016 INDIE BOOK AWARDS
The Yukon. Land of the midnight sun and the Klondike gold rush. Wilderness and wildlife, rivers and lakes, mountains and glaciers. As mystical a place as there is on earth. The Yukon’s also a great place to launder illicit cash with a gold mine. And organized crime knows it.
C.E. Brody is a man of the world but prefers life in a cabin on the Yukon River. For a living he flies an ancient float plane and runs a highway repair shop. Single, fiercely independent, a champion for the little guy, Brody loves his dogs and plane, hates cops and phones, and cooks a great meal for two.
After repairing her car, Brody is hired by a beautiful and mysterious woman to fly her over a gold mine. The two spot a missing plane. They land and find two men inside. He knows the pilot, she knows the passenger.
Within hours, Brody realizes he’s suddenly become the center of attention for the RCMP, the FBI, and two underworld gangs. His beautiful passenger is making romantic advances. He’s beaten up, his plane is hijacked, a friend’s child is kidnapped. With no idea what's going on, he's bound and determined to get answers. And get even.
A thriller, an adventure, a romance, Yukon Audit is filled with imagery and insight into the land called the Yukon - its gold rush history, its colorful characters, its geography and geology. Detailed flying sequences are narrated from the cockpit, as are the history and details of Brody’s sixty year old pride and joy, a DeHavilland Beaver, the greatest bush plane ever made.
If you’ve never been to the Yukon, you’ll want to visit after reading Yukon Audit.

Praise for Yukon Audit
"...a brilliant novel...one of those page-turners that’s impossible to put down..."
Readers' Favorite

“A gripping, entertaining ride of a book with a wonderful main character - a bush pilot named Brody - can't wait to read Brody’s next escapade!”

Jonathan Harr, NY Times best selling author of A Civil Action and The Lost Painting, and recipient of The National Book Critics Award

“This novel has a super pace and flow. The drama takes place on the vast forested tableau of the north and the author is obviously an excellent and sympatric guide to an area we know little about.....quite the page-turner.”

Brian Stewart, former Senior Correspondent for the CBC’s The National, and Gemini Award winner as Canada’s Best Journalist.
