From the Back Cover:

Twelve miles above the Pacific Ocean, a missile strikes a jumbo passenger jet. The flight crew is crippled or dead. Now, defying both nature and man, three survivors must achieve the impossible: Land the plane.

From master storyteller Nelson DeMille and master pilot Thomas Block comes the classic bestseller that packs a supersonic shock at every turn of the page. The most horrifyingly realistic air disaster thriller ever written, it will make you grip your seat in terror...
