HEAR NO EVIL

Hear No Evil begins with a plausible method for blowing up a plane. We follow a very unstable but unnamed character through an airport as she plants a bomb aboard a small commuter plane then detonates it by making a sky phone call from another plane. Before the story is over, we’ve visited a cult/militia group, learned about the phone psychic business and met a very troubled little girl.
Though there is a tangling of events here, I’m not really sure that this could be called a mystery. There are murders and evil, but no puzzle in the traditional sense of the word.
Campbell does a good job of making her characters believable, telling an interesting tale, and carefully knotting the loose ends at the finish.
If you’re looking for a slightly creepy story that "pulls characters from the headlines" as they say, read this one.
