Price: $2.99
364 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 77 reviews

"I found this a well written and gripping story about something very different to the regular Airport book. The setting is described so that you can almost be there and the characters easily recognizable. The story flows and I quite literally, could not put the book down. I suppose my long term military career made the book appealing to me as I could relate quite easily to the various plots. A great first novel from a writer I expect to see more of." -- Amazon reviewer
