    "Mayday"

    This author never fails to write exciting, fast moving, thought provoking novels. As usual, he includes enough fact to make the fiction frightening.This is every fliers nightmare- an incapacitated flight crew. It makes you want to check the flight manifest to be sure there is a seasoned pilot in the passenger section before boarding! And the liability carrier??? I'm sure ,while probably not verbalized, there isn't a carrier out there who hasn't been conflicted faced with overwhelming financial responsibility for a disaster. I highly recommend this book, as I do any of this authors' efforts

    "not to bad"

    I have read other of Nelson DeMille's books and really enjoyed them. This was not the best one, but it was still worth the read. The entire book takes place on an airplane (for the most part) so if that doesn't sound appealing don't get this one.

    "Marginal at best"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Technical details are far from accurate, and audio is not very clear. Marginal at best.
