In The Smuggler's Mask, Milo Fry, an airline pilot injured in an airplane crash that killed his wife and ruined his career, returns to Mexico to search for an old smuggling partner who seems to have returned from the dead. Milo becomes entangled in a struggle between his former comrade and a powerful Mexican cartel chieftain over a golden death mask looted centuries ago from the tomb of a king who once ruled the ancient Mexico civilization of Teotihuacan. The battle for survival that follows provides Milo with reasons to live, love, and fly again.

The author, Steven Howard, is a retired airline captain living in California with his wife Maria of Jalisco, Mexico. The author has years of experience in Mexico, and he has flown many types of airplanes including hundreds of hours in the Beechcraft Super E18 featured in The Smuggler's Mask.
