Somewhere over the Alaskan wilderness a plane has disappeared.

As winter approaches Anchorage, flight instructor Beri Quinn races to find a student who took off in one of her planes, and hasn’t been seen since. She’s convinced he’s still alive despite the Civil Air Patrol calling off their search. She strives to locate the missing pilot, save her reputation as a flight instructor and keep her business. But both in the air and on land, she must overcome gathering forces conspiring against her.

A single mother, Quinn fears losing custody of her son. She draws on her knowledge of aviation and musters the emotional strength necessary to overcome unseen adversaries and protect her family. With missing gold, sabotaged aircraft and unsolved murder, the stakes are high for Quinn and for her enemies.

To resolve her dilemma, Beri must answer one underlying question: did her student misjudge the weather and make a fatal mistake, or was he the victim of an elaborate murder plot? In her quest for an answer, she discovers unexpected betrayal and a massive criminal conspiracy.

Told with suspense, humor, and a fighting spirit, this is a mystery for anyone who has ever dreamed of adventure in Alaska.

"Toni Niesen has landed a rapid-fire thriller with Parts Unknown. Set in remote and urban Alaska, her fictional adventure takes us into the inner workings of general aviation and the personalities who pursue it with passion. Protagonist, Beri Quinn, kept me turning pages late into the night." — Elizabeth D. Nobmann, PhD, MPH, RDN, and member, The Ninety-Nines, Inc., Alaska Chapter

"Great book! A suspenseful love letter to flying and Alaska!" — Eric Bergstrom, radio personality for Cat Country 95.1

"Toni Niesen has crafted a mystery as compelling as the Alaskan wilderness where it is set. Parts Unknown takes the reader on a twisting adventure that kept me guessing until the very end. Fans of Dana Stabenow will enjoy this new series and be asking for more. Well done!" — Dorothy St. James, author of the Southern Chocolate Shop Mysteries
