Death by Airship by Arthur Slade

Prince Conn is a pirate.  So are his mom and dad and all his siblings.  Since his assigned area has almost no traffic, he doesn't get to act like a pirate very often but he's ready for when they show up.  When one of his sisters tries to set his airship on fire, he goes after her.  That's when he finds out his siblings are being killed off.  And he's being framed for it...

Orca Book Publishers and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published January 9th.

Mr. Slade writes busy stories that hold your attention.  I really enjoyed watching Conn trying to save his family.  His enemy is someone he knows but he doesn't realize that.  When his mother tries to knock his plane out of the sky, he races back home to talk to his father.  The King tells him he knows he didn't do it because he's not smart enough to carry out such a plot.  (That's not really a compliment, is it?).  While he's visiting with his father, a dove lands in the window.  Then another and another.  Then they blow up and take the window out and enemies crawl in.  He drags the King out on his airship and they escape.  Except he still has someone following him...

Can he save his family from the killer?
