Publisher's Summary

Internationally acclaimed aviation insider and novelist John J. Nance moves with polished ease and compelling authenticity from the cockpit to the boardroom in a world where the big three U.S. airlines have achieved national dominance, with high prices and poor service. Challenging them comes a new, visionary airline, one that combines a great name from aviation's recent past with new standards of comfort and elegance. This billion-dollar start-up was engineered by Elizabeth Sterling, a bright young investment banker (and single parent). When she assumes the post of chief financial officer for this upstart carrier, she finds herself masterminding a frantic defense against a sinister campaign by powerful, unknown forces determined to destroy her proud creation.Phoenix Rising is a story in the grand tradition of Airport and Hotel, a blend of strong characters, chilling suspense, and realistic detail.


What the Critics Say

"Fasten your seat belt and prepare for a bumpy ride....Nonstop action circles the globe, and Brian Emerson achieves seamless transitions between American, Scottish, Canadian, and Chinese accents. The action is so intense and the voices are so natural the listener is propelled through the story." (AudioFile)
"Phoenix Rising reads like a cross between a black box transcript and Business Week. The dual dangers to a new airline involve financial skullduggery and terrorism....An absorbing book." (Booklist)

A Enjoyable Listen

I really enjoyed this book. It was fast paced, full of intrigue and a captivating listen. At first I wasn't sure about the narrator but I came to enjoy his range of convincing voices. This is one I would listen to again.
