The War Department offered Gable a funeral service with full military honors, but he refused it, knowing his wife would not approve of such spectacle. Based on extensive research rather than gossip, this investigation further explores the lives of the 21 others on the plane, including 15 members of the US Army Air Corps, and addresses one of the most enduring mysteries of World War II. On a clear night full of stars, with TWA's most experienced pilot at the controls of a 10-month-old aircraft under the power of two fully functioning engines, why did the flight crash into that Nevada mountainside?
This gripping page-turner presents the story of the people on the plane, the friends and families left behind, and the heroic first responders who struggled up a mountain hoping to perform a miracle rescue. It is a story of accomplishment, bravery, sacrifice, and loss.

What does Tavia Gilbert bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Ms.Gilbert does read with enthusiasm.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I appreciated that Mr. Matzen fleshed out some peripheral players in the lives of Lombard and also Gable.
Any additional comments?
I've always felt I knew Carole; now I feel I know her better.
