Meet Rick Marshall, a former B17 pilot scraping a living as private detective. Along with everyone else that day he hears the massive explosion over the Golden Gate bridge as a Lockheed Constellation disintegrates in a massive fireball and falls into the bay.
He's hired by a local crime boss to find out who killed his wife, a passenger on the doomed 'Connie'. Against his will, Rick's assigned an assistant. A six-foot-tall blonde from Iceland who likes to wear men's suits. She's a looker and she's handy with her fists...
...But is she there to make sure Rick only learns so much? There's also the problem posed by Rick's wife. She's having an affair with her boss and her boss is into some very shady land deals in the Napa Valley. Can Rick solve the biggest case he's ever had and save his marriage? Who can he really trust?
Can Rick solve the biggest case he's ever had and save his marriage? This is The Connie. Complex, compelling and more noir than a moonless night.
