Publisher's Summary

Three passengers are dead. Fifty-six are injured. The interior cabin virtually destroyed. But the pilot manages to land the plane...
At a moment when the issue of safety and death in the skies in paramount in the public mind, a lethal mid-air disaster aboard a commercial twinjet airliner bound from Hong Kong to Denver triggers a pressured and frantic investigation.

Airframe is nonstop Crichton: the extraordinary mixture of super suspense and authentic information on a subject of compelling interest that has been a Crichton hallmark since The Andromeda Strain.

Try it, you'll like it.

This book is worth listening to even if you didn't like the author's earlier books. If you are like me, and you're interested in believable behind the scenes analysis of an airline crash, this is definitely worth your time. There is a significant subplot regarding TV news magazines like 60 Minutes which adds to the enjoyment of this book.

Airframe Won't Disappoint...

If you like aircraft and drama, then you'll like this book. It combines technical information along with a well laid out plot of "Why?" which drives the investigation. Michael Crichton does it again in this "page turner" (if there were pages!). Enjoy!

AIrframe - Brilliant

This is a brillaint book excellently told in audio format. Crichton keeps you guessing and the suspense is electric right to the end. His technical knowledge is phenomenal as is his story telling skills.

Thoroughly recommended

Should be boring...just isn't!

I love Crichton but had never tried this one before because it sounded dull compared to say Jurassic Park. I was surprised because although far fetched ( trade unionists trying to kill people) and what Crichton novel isn't i really found i had to know what had happened to the plane.
