View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Crippled by a high-altitude collision with another airplane, Wayfarer 880, half the roof ripped away, flies on in the evening sky. Seated in the back, amid dead and dying passengers, pilot Donovan Nash fights decompression and oxygen deprivation to make it to the shattered cockpit. With help from a woman from his carefully concealed past, and a handful of survivors, Donovan must try to fly the heavily damaged plane with no electrical power or functioning instruments. On the ground, Dr. Lauren McKenna waits for Donovan, her fiancée, to arrive in Chicago, only to hear firsthand of the midair collision. Faced with a hostile airline executive who secretly wants the stricken airliner to vanish into the icy waters of Lake Michigan, Lauren must convince Henry Parrish, an unlikely ally, to help save the man she loves. Lauren and Henry find themselves involved in a deadly game of deception to try and stay one step ahead of the Airline as well as heightened security forces. As Flight 880 burns the last of its fuel, and not knowing who they can trust, Henry and Lauren rush to execute a daring midair solution to save Donovan and the others circling helplessly above.

About the Author:

Philip Donlay learned to fly at age seventeen and was first published at eighteen. In the aviation world, success came quickly and he's been flying jets since he was twenty years old. Whether flying a Saudi sheik, nighttime freight, or executives of a Fortune 500 company, Donlay has logged over six million miles while spanning the globe to forty countries on five continents. Donlay burst onto the literary scene in 2004 with the publication of his first novel, Category Five, followed by Code Black, Zero Separation, Deadly Echoes and Aftershock.  He divides his time between Montana and the Pacific Northwest.

From Booklist:

Air travel is stressful enough, what with lost luggage, the interminable lines through security, and the high probability of a mindlessly verbose seatmate; but it could be worse, much worse. Wayfarer flight 880 suffers a midair collision with another plane, ripping half the 737's roof off and depressurizing it, but still leaving it airborne. Seated in the back, Donovan Nash, a pilot on his way to Chicago, valiantly struggles to make his way to the devastated cockpit, where he finds the crew dead or unconscious and the instruments inoperative. On the ground, the blizzard of the century has O'Hare Airport completely shut down, which forces Nash's fiance, Defense Intelligence Agency researcher Dr. Laura McKenna, to employ unorthodox resources in a daring rescue attempt. The suspense never lets up in this high-flying disaster thriller--readers will be biting their nails in anticipation of each new catastrophe to befall the beleaguered characters. Highly recommended for all popular fiction collections--sure to make a great vacation read, but beware reading it on the plane while en route. Michael Gannon
