Sky Heist is a cross between a heist movie (a la 'Ocean's Eleven') and an episode of 'Air Disasters'-- outlining the investigation of a major commercial airline crash.  It follows the lead NTSB investigator  Michael “Tubs” Tubman and pilot Portia Gannascoli as she tries to pull off the biggest theft in recorded history.  When their paths collide, the result is yet another explosive twist that can't be predicted.

As she struggles to make sense of the bizarre forensic clues, she begins to suspect that the Keller Corporation is up to something sinister. When one of the scientists discovers another dead body, it seems like a horrible accident, but it isn't long before Natalie is racing to unlock the secret of the Mendelian Protocol before she becomes a casualty herself.

What do you get when you take a cozy murder mystery, combine it with a fast-paced thriller, and throw in a dose of 1980s nostalgia?

The year is 1985.  After he drops out of medical school, Christopher decides to move to Nantucket Island for a change of scene.  He gets a job working at a dive bar where he becomes fast friends with the locals.  But when a dead body turns up, he begins to wonder about his recent life change and his new co-workers.  So, when the killer begins communicating with him using passages from the classic novel The Great Gatsby, he begins to question his own sanity.  The puzzle unwinds like a countdown clock until there’s no time left.  Will Christopher succumb to his demons, or will he expose the evil lurking in the shadows?  Like in any good story, the end is impossible to predict.

Dr Stephen O'Neill is working the night shift when a woman is brought into his Emergency Department with bible verses burned into her skin.  After putting her on life support and admitting her to the Intensive Care Unit, he reports the victim’s wounds to the local sheriff’s office.  He soon finds himself investigating on behalf of the victim, who is not expected to survive.  Before long he forms a bond with Deputy Emily Holland and they begin to suspect that a local religious sect—some would call it a cult—may be involved.  When another victim’s body is found, it becomes a race to decipher the biblical references and find the executioner before more people are killed.  Can O’Neill and Holland solve the puzzle of the Armageddon Prophecy before Judgement Day arrives?  The fate of the world may hang in the balance.
