In Spare Parts, Claudia Martin, an avionics engineer at Duffet
Commercial Airplane Co. (DCAC), finds a serious software anomaly
which could threaten the integrity of the Flight Management
Computer system -- and that could bring down a jet. Her boss, an
ex-lover, chooses to overlook her warning in order to meet the
accelerated airplane development schedule. But Claudia's own values
will not allow her to agree to let it go. Claudia finds her
professional reputation challenged, her career at stake. When a
local flight crashes under mysterious circumstances, she accepts
the call to adventure that will change her life forever.
Claudia approaches the FAA where she is offered a job as an
undercover mole. She teams with FBI Agent Wyatt Richardson to
examine bogus parts issues. Their sexual tension serves as a
subplot highlighting rivalry between governmental agencies. Wyatt
regards bad hardware to be the issue, but Claudia disagrees. She
pursues her quest for the hidden cause -- bad software. But that is
only the tip of the iceberg. Lurking beneath it all is a sinister
plot to ruin DCAC by a EuroAire-owned subcontractor. What begins as
an investigation of flight-critical software and bogus spare parts
explodes in global dimensions, becoming a race for market share and
air safety, and threatening Claudia's life.
Spare Parts spans two continents, where an evil web turns safe
air travel into a roulette game. The FAA, FBI, NTSB, British Civil
Aviation Administration (CAA), and New Scotland Yard wage separate
battles before joining forces against one CAA inspector, and a
corrupt subcontractor. As Claudia puts the pieces together, she
discovers how EuroAire obtained software source code to
deliberately sabotage flight-critical programs on DCAC jets.
