Unveiling the True Crime Bestseller ‘Final Flight: Queen of Air,’ a riveting exploration of high-stakes federal crime investigation.

“…A superb book about the incredibly complicated tapestry of criminal enterprise delivering illicit drugs and other illegal activities from multi-national sources into the United States…” — Patrick M. Hughes, LTG, U.S. Army (Ret.)

Bravo Zulu Publishers proudly announces that “Final Flight: Queen of Air” has achieved Amazon Bestseller status. This gripping true crime narrative provides an in-depth look at the federal investigation and eventual takedown of Debra Lynn Mercer Erwin, an Oklahoma mother who allegedly masterminded a sprawling international drug trafficking operation.

Known by the moniker “Queen of Air,” Mercer Erwin deftly utilized U.S.-based shell companies to clandestinely register 1,000 aircraft, some of which were for drug cartels. Her operation led to a $240 million Ponzi scheme in a small town that ironically lacked an airport.

Jesús Romero, a retired U.S. Navy Lieutenant Commander and former naval intelligence officer, authored “Final Flight: Queen of Air.” The book also includes contributions from Steve Tochterman, a retired FAA Special Agent. Together, they dissect the sophisticated strategies employed to dismantle a criminal organization responsible for smuggling approximately 120 tons of cocaine into the United States each year.

The storyline is rooted in the Grand Jury Indictment from February 24, 2021, by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas (Case 4:20-cr-00212-ALM-KPJ Document 151), meticulously detailing Mercer Erwin’s extensive criminal endeavors within the realm of private aviation.

Released on June 15th, 2024, “Final Flight: Queen of Air” swiftly achieved bestseller status in three categories on Amazon within just three days. Readers can enjoy the book in Kindle, paperback, and hardback editions, with a Spanish version expected to be available before July 4th, 2024.

The book has garnered high praise from various high-profile individuals. Patrick M. Hughes, LTG, U.S. Army (Ret.) and former Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), described it as “a superb exploration of the complex criminal enterprise delivering illicit drugs into the United States.”

Enrique “Ric” Prado, a retired CIA Senior Operations Officer (SIS-2), noted it as “a compelling demonstration of the power of inter-agency collaboration.”

Felix I. Rodriguez-Mendigutia, another retired CIA officer from the Special Activities Division, couldn’t agree more, calling it “engaging from start to finish. This book places you at the heart of the operation.”
