We have good people doing fairly dumb things, unhappy people doing bad things, and even average people doing things they regret. In short, we find that even in Scotland people are not perfect by a long shot. This makes the story believable, even though it is a little hard to imagine one person being involved in two life threatening mysteries at once.
Sorry guys. Rusty could not get past the customs officials in Great Britton. However, we have lambs, puppies and a small terrier name Ruffie to fill in for him. No Mexican food either. How did Charlie survive that?
The interesting thing, in both mysteries, is not so much who did it, as how far are the people involved are actually willing to go. Because in both situations the people involved should have known that it would not end well for them.
This is the seventh book I've read by Connie Shelton and I'm really enjoying the characters as well as the helicopter aspect and the southwestern locations.
Until you find that someone does not like the idea of helicopter transporting workers. It gets really dicey when Charlie ends up without her helicopter flying and she is all wet and cold. Then the kidnapping and ransom demand.
Not only competition, but a mystery.
As always a good read.

Oh, just one more thing - although American TV has reached Scotland, they still herd sheep and cattle, they don't talk about "running" them.
Several times I wondered f the original setting for this story was to have been the Gulf of Mexico because sometimes the story and its characters made more sense that way.
Nevertheless, it hasn't put me off and I shall continue to read about Charlie and hopefully enjoy her further adventures.
Two main plots here with Charlie & Drake operating at times alone & then together.
Very exciting with the helicopter flights over the North Sea to the oil platforms & the wicked perfomances of some of the people on the rig trying to prevent Charlie & Drake completing their flights.
The other plot is about a kidnap & Charlie solving it.
Again an enjoyable read.
