What a great surprise! I wanted to read some early demille and couldn't put it down. Like a great Arthur Hailey novel from the seventies. You will love this one.
A fantastic read
This book is a page turner that was difficult to put down.
Perfect for 2013
Even though it was written in 1979 and updated in the 1990s, this book is well written and quite accurate. One of the most chilling parts is at the end when the plane lands and spins on Runway 28L in San Francisco...the same runway where the Asianic Air landed earlier this summer.
