Two novels by a New York Times–bestselling author who can “keep even the most experienced thriller addicts strapped into their seats for the whole flight” (People).
Featuring FBI hostage negotiator Kat Bronsky, these are two stories of pilots, passengers, and planes in peril that move at supersonic speed.
The Last Hostage: When airline pilot Ken Wolfe learns that the presumptive nominee for US attorney general is on his flight, his blood runs cold. Rudolph Bostich bungled the case after Wolfe’s daughter was kidnapped and killed—and let the perpetrator walk. Now Wolfe is prepared to do anything for revenge, including hijacking his own plane. It’s up to FBI agent, psychologist, and rookie hostage negotiator Kat Bronsky to solve the mystery of an eleven-year-old girl’s murder and save the lives of 130 terrified passengers.
Blackout: A Boeing/McDonnell-Douglas MD-11 jetliner crashes into the Gulf of Mexico a mile inside Cuban waters, killing all onboard. The last three minutes on the plane’s cockpit voice and data recorders have been erased. Was it a massive mechanical failure or an act of terrorism? When another airliner goes down after its pilots are flash-blinded midflight, Kat Bronsky races from the jungles of Southeast Asia to the forests of the American Northwest to unmask the conspirators before the entire American airline industry comes crashing out of the sky.
