This author never fails to write exciting, fast moving, thought provoking novels. As usual, he includes enough fact to make the fiction frightening.This is every fliers nightmare- an incapacitated flight crew. It makes you want to check the flight manifest to be sure there is a seasoned pilot in the passenger section before boarding! And the liability carrier??? I'm sure ,while probably not verbalized, there isn't a carrier out there who hasn't been conflicted faced with overwhelming financial responsibility for a disaster. I highly recommend this book, as I do any of this authors' efforts
