October 2017 - Gail Elliot is the author of The Black Suitcase Mystery—A World War II Remembrance, published in 2015. The book invites the reader to step back in time to the 1940’s and delve into a World War II “mystery” involving B-24 Liberator Bombers, the men who flew them and the women who waited for their safe return.
