However, stay strapped in if you can. The plots begin to merge about a quarter of the way along. But you'll still have to pay close attention given the numerous characters that remain in play, plus many new ones. Hint to readers: this is essential to identify which of the 767's is which as Harrison Jones flips back an forth between them, identifying them only by who's aboard. Hint to Harrison: (1) use less than one-tenth the number of characters used in this book if you want a readership unrestricted to those with eidetic memories and (2) use far more transition.
Note to Harrison Jones: congrats on superb content throughout and an outstanding finale.

As others mention, it's Colombia, not Columbia, and it was misspelled every time, and that is a lot as that country figures quite prominently in the plot. Spanish words were incorrect, "buenos diaz" being one example. The wrong form of "to" as in "I'll go if I have too" about 10 times (all the more annoying because sometimes it was the correct form). Questions ended with periods 5 times. "Bath" instead of "bathe" and "broke" instead of "broken". A "canvass" bag (evidently this bag goes out to solicit votes). Then words ending in -est are used as plurals, such as "guest" as in "5 guest came to my party", and "vest" treated the same way, half a dozen times altogether. The phrase "had saw" was used. That was the first time I ever "had saw" an author do that. "Had came up" was also used. And "clear conscious" when it should be "clear conscience". That is not everything, just the most blatant ones. This was extremely distracting. I felt like I was reading a high school effort as far as writing conventions.
The story line was not without detail errors also. Spoiler alert for those who may read it (and it IS a good story, so you might like to). People from Iran are not Arabs, they are Persians, and they speak Farsi, not Arabic.Read more ›

This novel does not have the polish of a Clancy, Follett, or even Jack Higgins. Maybe it was enjoyable for exactly that reason. Read morePublished 4 months ago by AG

Good book with an aviation background. Technically correct and a pleasure to read. A big plus is that there is no profanity.Published 11 months ago by Roger Marlin
