Continuing with Donald E. Keyhoe’s The Sky Raider, a serialized novel from 1929. A lot has happened. The story so far. . .

    Dick Trent, young aviator, has just joined the Air Mail Service. On his first trip he carries an important letter from the owner of the field, Old Man Rand, to his son, Tommy. Through a blinding snowstorm he negotiates a narrow pass in the Rockies, locates young Rand drinking in a gambling resort and flies him back to his own field to save him from dismissal. The superintendent, Carmichael, warns Dick he has violated regulations, but Old Man Rand thanks him for the service.
    Dick falls in love with lovely Mary Rand and saves her from fatality by flying to her disabled plane in mid-air.
    Dick tells Lawson, a fellow aviator, of his invention for a skywriting signal code. Lawson informs Dick he is leaving the service to get married. On his last trip Lawson goes missing. Dick finds his plane burned and Lawson murdered. A package containing $250,000 is missing. Lawson’s skull is crushed in and after a careful search, Dick finds a clumsy Luger pistol.
    Returning to Rand Field he meets Carmichael nad Mary Rand. Thoroughly shaken by the discovery, Mary identifies the pistol as one her father carries! She asks Dick to drive home with her. On the way he tells her of his love and is happy when she sys she loves him. A moment later there is silence between them when she says her father has been away all morning. . . .

Where has Old Man Rand been all morning? And how did his gun come to be at the scene of the murder? Find out in the fifth installment of Donald E. Keyhoe’s The Sky Raider!


And come back on Wednesday for the next installment!
