From award winning author Ken Baird comes the sequel to Yukon Audit. Meet C.E. Brody, a Yukon renaissance man who leads a solitary life on the edge of civilization. Living without cell phones or internet is just fine with him—with a cabin on the river, a vehicle repair shop, an old pickup truck and plane, and two dogs to keep him company—he has everything he needs. Or does he? It's been a year since Brody was lucky to escape with his life after a harrowing chase down the Yukon River. A mobster named Kay had been intent on killing him, but after the two men entered a white water maelstrom, only Brody got through. Kay’s body was never found, and as far as Brody’s concerned, the man drowned. But with two recent murders pointing to Kay, the RCMP aren’t so sure about that. After a suspicious fire close to home, Brody’s plane is vandalized, his dogs go missing, and a woman is murdered at his cabin. When he takes a contract to fly rock samples out of a remote mine site, the FBI turns up. They say the mine is a stock market scam and want Brody to fly in one of their undercover agents to investigate. But when that undercover agent turns out to be a former girlfriend —who he barely recognizes—and with Kay still on the loose... Now charged, tried and convicted by a pesky reporter for three murders and an assault he didn’t commit, and with the RCMP more hindrance than help, and with the FBI not concerned about finding Kay, Brody knows only he can unravel the mess he's in. And that will take a lot of luck.
Yukon Revenge: A C.E. Brody Novel
Ken Baird, author
The taut prologue to Baird’s high-octane sequel to 2016’s Yukon Audit reveals how Yukon pilot C.E. Brody obtained a box containing $400,000 in cash from two murderous criminals in the previous book. The selfless Brody later spent all the money on lottery tickets to help cover the cost of a new ice arena, believing that both bad guys had drowned in the Yukon River. In fact, one of them survived and a year later is on Brody’s trail. Brody’s life gets more complicated after his truck is vandalized, his dog is shot, and he’s set up for a murder rap: Brody returns home one day to find Amy Vanderbilt, a 26-year-old dancer he barely knows yet allowed to stay with him, with her neck broken. To prove his innocence, he must track down Amy’s killer. Meanwhile, U.S. Treasury agent Sarah Marsalis, with whom Brody has a past, is tasked with a perilous undercover assignment. Baird populates this complex suspense novel with believable characters. Readers will hope to see more of the big-hearted Brody. (Self-published.)
