Publisher's Summary

Twelve miles above the Pacific Ocean, a missile strikes a jumbo passenger jet and leaves the flight crew either crippled or dead. This is the story of how three survivors must achieve the impossible and land the plane. Master storyteller Nelson DeMille and veteran pilot Thomas Block collaborated on Mayday, the most terrifyingly realistic air disaster thriller of all time.

Great adventure! Hard to put down.

I wouldn't give many books five stars, but this one is well deserving. Although updated from the original written in the late 70's (which I haven't read), the story is by no means old. The characters are well defined, and the story line keeps you hooked and wanting more.

The author throws in enough twists to keep you on your toes and unable to predict the next move. Granted, not everything is 100% believable, but is entertainment after all. I have read other DeMille books and highly recommend him as an author.

Not enough superlatives to describe this book.....gripping, most definately comes to mind. I found myself searching for things to do that did not require thought so I could continue listening to "Mayday"....I just didn't want to turn it off. As one who does not like to fly, I found myself even more convinced that staying on the ground is prudent. And, "Mayday" will make everyone think twice about the motives of corporate leaders when disasters strike.
