The famous aviatrix Amelia Earhart has come to England on a secret mission to raise Money for her planned continent-spanning air rally - with all-female pilots. Lady Lavinia naturally supports the amazing Amelia, inviting her to stay at Mydworth Manor. But when Amelia's money is stolen - and her life threatened - Harry and Kat must figure out who is behind this deadly game before it turns fatal...

Amelia Earhart is in England doing a series of shows in order to raise money toward the “Ninety-Nines” – a new organization Amelia is helping found for all female aviators worldwide. Amelia has just finished a show in London and she, along with her sister, Pidge, American reporter Ronald Greene, scheduling agent Wallace Smythe, and chief engineer Paddy O’Brien are heading to a fundraiser at Mydworth Manor. She is flying in a new plane, the Firefly, while the others are driving there. Of course, something happens to the plane, but Amelia manages to land it without injury or damage. Harry realizes that the accident could have been an attempt on Amelia’s life and he and his wife, Kat, decide to find out who caused the sabotage and to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

We’ve got several suspects, but it was pretty easy to figure out who the bad guy was. Overall, it’s a fun story, but not my favorite of the series. As always, Harry and Kat are a wonderful team, both do their fair share of investigating and putting themselves in danger.
