Dan Goldberg’s marriage is already in jeopardy because of his aluminum mistress, a 30-year-old single-engine Cessna. He barely affords the plane by taking extra work teaching monthly statistics classes in Washington D.C. On this trip, everything takes a decidedly different turn when he meets Maria, a sexy Latin businesswoman — and his life shifts.

Dan is offered a fistful of cash by a Jamaican taxi driver in return for an overnight flight to New Jersey. Sure, it sounded fishy ... and when the trip turns out to be a drug run for a cocaine cartel, the deal goes sour and leads him into real jeopardy. No matter how high he goes, Dan can’t fly away from this dilemma …

Howard Hammerman grew up on a farm not far from New York City. His love of flying started, when, as a youngster, his father bought him a 15-minute ride on a bi-plane. Many years later he became a private pilot (instrument rated) and owned his own Cessna Cardinal. His fascination with people and the choices they make in their lives started in college Sociology courses. He taught college then became an analyst with the US government hoping to make a difference in the world. He has been a freelance statistical consultant since 1990.

Howard, his artist-wife Helen and their dog traveled the country for several years in their motor home before settling in Sarasota, Florida, where they enjoy the support for creative arts of all types.

Flying Blind is his first novel. Visit his website:
