Allan L Mann

Georgetown, Kentucky

Allan L Mann is an author of crime fiction. He is a leading figure in the business aviation industry in the United States, with over 30 years of flying experience.

Allan's first full-length novel, "Tools of the Trade," was published in eBook format in early 2016, and is the first in a trilogy featuring retired Scottish Detective Sergeant Tom Guthrie. Two short stories - "Wrung Out" and "Murder in the Sma' Glen" - were published in 2015 and serve as prequels to the Tom Guthrie Trilogy. The trilogy forms part of a larger planned series, "The Angus Murders."

Current projects underway include a new series of aviation-based thrillers, the first of which, called "Wings of the Black Eagle" is scheduled to be released in late 2016.

About the author

Allan's professional flying career started as a pilot in the Royal Air Force and has spanned over thirty years, including hot air balloons, airliners, small training aircraft, and large business jets. He is a leading figure in the business aviation community in the United States and continues to work with both industry and government leaders to formulate a safer aviation environment.

Allan is an avid reader of historical non-fiction and Scottish crime fiction and counts Ian Rankin, Val McDermid, Stuart MacBride, Quintin Jardine, Allan Guthrie and Ed James among his influences. Who wouldn't?

His experience serves to bring a reality to his writing, with both the people and places populating his books based on real events and locations.

Allan lives in Georgetown, Kentucky with his wife, three girls, one cat, and an English Springer Spaniel.

Update #2 - United Airlines Trip 23 - October 10, 1933 Oct. 11, 2016

Hello from my office!

I sit here this evening thankful for your commitment to WINGS OF THE BLACK EAGLE. You’re sponsorship and preorder of the book is a huge part of what it will take to make this a successful project. If you know of anyone who may enjoy the book, aviation nuts, lovers of history, fans of  fast-paced thrillers, please forward the link to the campaign page (https://publishizer.com/wings-of-the-black-eagle).

I cannot do this without your help, so I am grateful you placed your faith in me to produce an outstanding product.

This particular story is as much about the real mystery of United Airlines Trip 23 and the seven people who lost their lives in the first ever commercial aircraft bombing. I'll be sharing lots of information as we progress through the campaign, all the way up to publication. I hope you find these details as fascinating as I do.

Thanks again and please spread the word.

Cheers,

Al.
