They have nowhere to run, nowhere to land, and they’re running out of sky.
A pilot and an air marshal struggle against impossible odds to save passengers above the Atlantic Ocean after a predator turns a crippled plane into a flying death trap.
Quentin Kane hasn’t been a detective for years, but when a strange woman asks the air marshal to help bring down a shadowy organization, he gives in. But the next morning, he wakes up with no memory of the woman or the odd wooden box she gave him.
Eden Stone could fly an F/A-18 through a keyhole but can’t outrun the dark secret that threatens to destroy her career. On her first Boeing 747 flight, the former navy fighter pilot notices that her captain is suddenly behaving erratically. Purple spots develop on his skin, and his eyes turn cherry red.
Eden and Quentin race to find the origin of the strange disease before it takes out the last person who can fly the aircraft, an aircraft that gives increasingly more dire warnings.
The passengers and crew are not alone. Something has awakened in the cargo hold, something created in a secret lab. Now it’s unleashed onboard and could be more lethal dead than alive.
For the survivors trapped 37,000 feet above the middle of the ocean with an apex predator that can turn every inch of the aircraft into a deadly weapon, there is no safe place. The only place where some have any hope happens to be the most dangerous place on the aircraft—the heart of the animal’s lair.
The vicious animal, the bizarre illness, the shadowy organization, and the odd wooden box are all connected. Quentin and Eden must find the link fast to keep the passengers alive until they can reach land—if they can reach land. But it may already be too late.
This fast-paced thriller runs on rocket fuel from the first page until the surprising ending. It explores second chances and shows that sometimes the hardest person to forgive is yourself.
It’s Michael Crichton’s JURASSIC PARK blended with T.J. Newman’s FALLING with a bit of Stephen King horror at its core.
I was really intrigued by the blurb for this book and I knew that it was a book that would have plenty packed in after I read the first few pages.
I read the book over a couple of nights, having read the initial 150 pages in one sitting, I think I would have carried on if it wasn’t for needing to sleep as I had to drive to Liverpool for work the next morning!
I thought that the characters were excellent, they worked really well together, I liked the mix of personalities and the different levels of interaction.
The book was set at a fast pace, and I really enjoyed that and I do think that it worked really well with the story to keep me hooked.
The book had danger, action, shocks and surprises and a little bit of a romantic undertone too. It is 5 stars from me for this one, it was a really addictive thriller with a lot of action and a well crafted plot, it is a book like you have probably never read before – very highly recommended
