Book 3: The Aviator's Crime

Jacques Moret is the dashing man of the hour: a fearless flying ace, devoted to aviation. But even as Moret celebrates a historic Paris-Buenos Aires crossing, poison pen letters accuse him of lusting after aircraft designer Florent Avrillé's wife, the stunning but faithful Belle Antoinette, and of trifling with the affections of Avrillé's debutante daughter. Then, on the eve of her wedding, young Martine Avrillé is subjected to a terrifying assault in her own bedroom. The culprit? She swears it is none other than Jacques Moret.

Only one man can uncover the truth behind this aviator's crime. Chantecoq throws himself into the baffling case with his usual flair, only to discover that this time the truth is far stranger and more terrifying than he could ever have predicted.
