"Canadian Alan McTeer started flying planes as a kid (he was an Air Cadet at the age of 12). He has worked in all sorts of aviation scenarios, including transporting planes from one location to another, buying, selling, painting and rebuilding planes, providing transport for aerial photographers and filmmakers and much more. Some of his assignments have been incredibly dangerous, but the danger potential is part of what attracted him to flying in the first place."
BOOKS WRITTEN BY ALAN MCTEER
Now in addition to flying any plane he can get his hands on, Alan McTeer is writing fiction too-and doing it very well. His first novel, RED ZONE (2003), elicited some exciting responses (see below). And now he has just completed his second novel, ESCAPING CUBA, and I am hoping that you may want to take a look at it as he gets to work on his third.

RED ZONE

The plan is to fly a small plane to Colombia, collect the delivery fee, and return to Miami on an airliner. But ace pilot Alan Richards begrudgingly agrees to deliver passengers as well -- a last minute concession that will turn his near-perfect life into a mortal nightmare. A crash landing in a burning plane, torture at the hands of someone who has mistaken him for someone else, and a forced tour of some of South America's most horrifying prisons are only the beginning of the long journey that will ultimately deliver him (and his copilot prettyboy Mario Rodriguez) into the hands of drug smugglers hiding out in the region of Colombia known as the Red Zone.

Red Zone, a novel based on events that actually happened to the author, pits two well-intended but humanly fallible characters against some very bad men in an adventure that brims with danger, excitement, humor, insight and veracity
"A hell of a journey into the heart of darkness. McTeer inherits the keys of the high adventure novel from the likes of Wilbur Smith, Desmond Bagley, and Hammond Innes."
--Paul Bishop, author of Chalk Whispers

"A riveting, white-knuckle read, with writing so vivid you'll believe you are sitting right there in the plane's cockpit with these unforgettable characters. McTeer is a natural-born storyteller who writes with the authority of a real adventurer. He doesn't just talk the talk-he has actually walked the walk."
--Tess Gerritsen, author of The Sinner

"McTeer walks the reader into a treacherous maze where entanglement and evil wait at every turn. This is a journey where there are no right moves, no one is to be trusted and there are no clear exits. A spine-tingling novel from beginning to end."
--Steve Zettler, author of The Second Man and Double Identity

"A stunning debut: taut, dark, and unputdownable."
--Molly Brown, author of Invitation To A Funeral

"A thrilling tale of a talented pilot addicted to adventure. [McTeer] so deftly handles plot, subplots, and characterization that only on landing do you realize you've been gripping the armrests."
--Jimmy Fox, author of Deadly Pedigree and Lineages and Lies

ESCAPING CUBA

This book is about a rogue pilot by the name of Alan Richards (think tough guy looks with a Jimmy Buffet temperament) who is being paid by the CIA to fly into Cuba, land, pick up two baseball players, and get out of Cuban air space before the Cuban government knows what hit them. Alan's co-pilot for this mission is Mario Rodriquez, a pretty boy who spends his free time looking for women and filling his stomach (though he will reveal another side of himself over the course of the journey). The mission goes awry when, as Alan begins his descent, he sees not two men waiting in the designated field below him, but over fifty men, women and children, many more than can possibly fit in the small plane he is flying.

Alan McTeer describes the intoxicating rush of dangerous takeoffs and landings the way only a real pilot could, just as recently-deceased author and jockey Dick Francis was able to describe the thrill of horse racing like no other. Alan went to Cuba to do geographical research for his novel, and he studied the history of the Cuban Revolution of 1959 and Castro's takeover so that he would be able to weave historical events into his narrative too. Hence, even though ESCAPING CUBA is a thriller teaming with aggressive CIA agents, Navy Seals, merciless Cuban Army soldiers, beautiful women and ordinary Cubans trying to get by without making waves, the reader walks away with a real understanding of why this hot, humid island so close to our own borders is the way it is today.
"OMG! This is a roller coaster ride of the best kind. I was constantly on the edge of my chair with this thriller. I am an avid reader and this book was one I couldn't put down. Alan Richards is a hero who a girl could easily fall in love with. I have also read Alan McTeer's other book 'Red Zone' which I found very exciting to read. I`m not gonna give any of the book away as you need to read it for yourself. I feel that this book and the Red Zone book would make great movies. Thanks for the great read!"

"Enjoyed the book very much. Kept me reading through to the end. I've also red the first book The Red Zone. Can't wait for the next book. Lots of action and unexpected turns. Book is very easy to read."
