A supersonic airliner has an unfortunate meeting with a navy test missile at high altitude. The plane depressurizes, and only a few crew and passengers survive without suffering from lack of oxygen before the plane levels out at a lower altitude. Led by a weekend pilot, the few survivors bravely try to bring the plane home, but they have to battle not only the elements, a plane full of irrational brain-damaged passengers, and their own fears, but also those who would rather see the plane crash at sea.

What a great read. This book grabbed my attention on page 1 and never let up. It was non stop action and took me on a roller coaster ride. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down. I highly recommend this book for those like high voltage mystery, intrigue and a lesson in the greed and lack of conscience of some people in high places. Amazing story.
