The extraordinary new suspense novel from "one of the most exciting new thriller talents in years" (Vince Flynn).
Four years after the events of The Mullah's Storm ("[A]n irresistible adventure story" - USA Today), jihadists strike the Afghan National Police training center in Kabul, killing many and wounding others, including Sergeant Major Sophia Gold. The injured are hurriedly loaded onto a C-5 Galaxy bound for Germany, but once airborne, the commander, Major Michael Parson, receives a message. The jihadists have placed bombs on some planes leaving Afghanistan, and the Galaxy is one of them. If Parson tries to descend - the bomb will go off.
Parson, Gold, and everybody else aboard are trapped at altitude, until either they or someone on the ground can figure out what to do. They can refuel in midair, but not indefinitely. The aircraft is deteriorating, the condition of the patients is worsening, the crew is tiring - and their biggest challenges are yet to come. The enemy is all around... and will take surprising form.

Just when you think one threat is eliminated, another one comes along. Great listen/read for those interested in military history, aviation, or just want to find out how airmen take care of one thing going wrong after another while up in the air thousands of feet. Be ready to not be able to get away.
The ending, the book came together, and the story had a complete ending.
The plane when he is talking to the fighter pilot.
The reader was spot on for this type of drama
I was amazed that a story of a single flight could maintain the tension and drama for the entire 9 hours or so that the book took to read
I am going to download the next one as soon as I can
Definitely 5 stars
