When NTSB agent John Tubman is called to investigate the downing of a commercial airliner, he knows it won't be a routine case. He rushes to the crash scene only to find the area crawling with FBI agents, and they are only giving out information on a need-to-know basis. He soon finds that what has transpired was no accident, and incredibly, the story is far from over.
Agent Tubman solves one layer of the mystery of Flight 227 only to be confounded by more questions. He knows what happened but can't understand why or how. Going against his superiors, he keeps digging and picks up the trail of an unlikely band of criminals who planned the most ambitious theft in all of human history.
Can Tubman bring the murderous thieves to justice? Will he recover the stolen merchandise? He knows he can't save the people of flight 227 but he can still bring closure to a nation in mourning. The conclusion of Sky Heist isn't the explosive ending one might expect.
The explosion is only the beginning.
