Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

An airliner attempting a bad-weather landing in a Midwest city plows into another awaiting takeoff. With more than 100 people dead, the National Transportation Safety Board assigns Joe Wallingford to investigate. Was the disaster caused by human error or by technical malfunction? Did outside electronic interference, perhaps from a top-secret SDI radar, disrupt flight controls? Nance, a leading airline safety analyst and author of nonfiction works on aviation, debuts as a novelist with a first-rate technical detective story. While keeping readers in suspense, he explores the dynamics of factions within the safety bureaucracy and limns the problems raised for airline management by deregulation. With realistic dialogue and convincing characters, particularly Wallingford and Senator Kell Martinson, this nonmilitary techno-thriller is a sure winner.

From School Library Journal

YA-- Joe Wallingford, National Transportation Safety Board investigator, perseveres through many obstacles to determine why two planes collided, killing most of the crew and passengers. Although there are twists and turns in the plot, it is not as complicated as many other books of this type. Nance's knowledge of Washington comes through clearly both in the physical description of places and in the political frustrations: cover-ups, relationship of private industry to independent agencies, Defense Department silence, individuals' quests for power, and the need for influential friends. Government students will see the detailed operation of one government agency as they come to know one stubborn, qualified civil servant who cares about his job. The only disappointment is the ending, which, while optimistic, is not realistic. --Claudia Moore, W. T. Woodson High School, Fairfax, VA
