In the bigger-than-life vein of "James Bond" and "Star Wars", author Thomas Block has revised and edited into ebook format his International Bestselling novel “Forced Landing”. Taking place in a pre-9/11 world of the 80's, a former US submarine is hijacked in the Gulf, a floating aircraft carrier museum is hijacked from its dock in South Carolina, a Learjet and then a DC-9 are hijacked from New York shortly thereafter. The story is a vintage-era caper that involves gold, hostages and a cast of noble and exceptionally nasty characters.
Library Journal said: “A well-written and carefully researched piece of high-camp.”
Mystery News said: “The interplay of these characters builds to a shattering climax.”
Charleston Evening Post said: “This story thoroughly holds the reader in suspense.”
Pittsburgh Press said: “The man can write, and his supply of airplanes is inexhaustible.”
Publisher’s Weekly said: “The ending is a lulu.”
Listed for many weeks on the Bestseller lists in the United States, England, Australia, Germany and other countries – and broadcast as a 13 episode serial drama on Japanese National Radio!
The Buffalo News said: “A whiz-bang story!”
