good thriller

A fairly good book, but the plot suffers from taking to long in the beginning to show. It gets exciting if you hold on for the first 100 pages or so.

This 9 cassette set is unabridged and read by the author. A real cliff hanger!

The title refers to a new high-tech computer program, the brainchild of handsome nerd Dr. Ben Cole, designed to save planes having flight trouble. A test run over the Gulf of Alaska goes horribly awry, with nearly fatal consequences, shaking Cole's confidence and sending him back to the drawing board. Not far away, on the same day, veteran pilot Arlie Rosen inexplicably goes down in his private plane with his wife, Rachel, the only passenger. Daughter April and her best friend, Gracie, are relieved when Arlie and Rachel escape with their lives, until federal aviation officials begin probing the crash and threaten to take away Arlie's pilot's license. Jeopardizing her own new job as vice-president of Empress Cruise Lines, perky April doggedly investigates, determined to save her father from a fate he considers little worse than death. Both Ben's and April's probes lead them to Washington, but the merging of the plot threads doesn't occur until deep into the novel. Nance has removed the proverbial ticking bomb

4 cassettes - abridged - approx 5 hours - Very thrilling and enjoyable 'techno mystery' !!!!

The story really held my interest - of course I like things aeronautic.

Very well read by the author.
