Publisher's Summary

After a ten-year leave, Kathryn Jacobs has been invited back to the N.T.S.B to investigate a series of unexplained airline crashes. But her husband, Captain Bill Jacobs, has his concerns. While her twin daughters are off at camp, and Bill is actively campaigning for the Pilot Union Presidency, Kathryn secretly begins her investigation. What she learns will shock the nation.
Flight For Control is a thriller that reads like a mystery. But to Kathryn, there is no mystery on the condition of the airline industry - it’s broken. Planes are crashing. Pensions are lost. Pilots are financially and emotionally bankrupt due to fatigue, furloughs, and loss of seniority.
It’s time that someone takes control before it’s too late - unless it already is.
Your life is in your pilot’s hands. Do you know who’s flying your plane

Thriller with a Steely Woman Pilot as Gumshoe

Karlene Petitt is a self-published author, and veteran pilot, who I discovered in an airport bookstore and in-flight magazine. She is a total firecracker, and has a great pilot-detective series starting with Flight for Control.

This is fun thriller, and is engaging to listen to. The protagonist, Kathryn Jacobs, has steely resolve and is going to crack the conspiracy she discovers-- if it kills her!

Great Airline-Centered Thriller

Writer is a longtime airline pilot who knows her stuff, but only gets a little preachy. First rate story with fresh ideas, interesting characters and much suspense.

Can be a little preachy at times, but gets to the bottom of how the decline of the once-great airlines affects the people who work for them. Good melodrama, flow and great cliffhanger.

Narrator's regional accent was, at times, a distraction, but she moved the story along well.

This should absolutely be made into a movie. Story's that good.

This was my second time listening to it.
