The "boomerang box," a high-tech computer program designed to save a plane experiencing flight trouble, is Dr. Ben Cole's baby. After a test run over the Gulf of Alaska goes awry, he suspects someone has sabotaged the plane's computer systems. And mysteriously, and almost simultaneously, April Rosen is horrified to learn that her father's plane has narrowly escaped a mid-air collision over the same patch of sea. While Dr. Cole considers the uncomfortable notion that someone within his own company might wish him harm, Rosen begins her search for the cause of her father's hair-raising "near miss." But what both don't know is this: their fears have a common source. They are being watched by people in the Pentagon, who believe that the two might stumble upon the secret that will destroy them all before Skyhook has a chance to succeed. What is Skyhook's real purpose? Is it commercial or military? And will its early implementation compromise the safety of flyers everywhere?

About the Author:

John J. Nance, aviation analyst for ABC News and a familiar face on Good Morning America, is the author of several bestselling novels including Fire Flight, Skyhook, Turbulence, and Orbit. Two of his novels, Pandora’s Clock and Medusa’s Child, have been made into highly successful television miniseries. A lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Air Force Reserve, Nance is a decorated pilot veteran of Vietnam and Operations Desert Storm/Desert Shield. He lives in Washington State.

From AudioFile:

John J. Nance reads his latest Alaska-based aviation thriller with strength, enthusiasm, and drama. Handsome Dr. Ben Cole is testing his high-tech computer software program (Skyhook), which allows a ground-based pilot to retake control of a plane in flight. (Remember 9/11.) Meanwhile perky April Rosen and her lawyer friend, Gracie, are trying to save April's father's pilot's license and career, and possibly his life. Tension builds as the two subplots converge. Nance smoothly differentiates characters and uses breathless speed-reading and increased volume to portray the building crises.
