Synopsis: When Cora’s husband was killed in a helicopter crash, she never wanted to fly again despite the fact that she had taken flying lessons as a young woman and had practised flying passenger jets on a simulator, however, she needed to fly to Seattle to Honolulu in order to attend a ceremony honoring her deceased husband. Halfway to Honolulu, the flight is hijacked and the two pilots are killed, along with two hijackers and some flight attendants. Cora’s seatmate is a Seattle Homicide Detective and they work together to determine if there are any other hijackers on the plane and to try to land it safely despite the fact that they are running out of fuel with no land in sight.
My Thoughts: While there was some writing that produced corny lines and a slight romance storyline that didn’t seem all that realistic considering the danger they were in, overall I found it entertaining and I pretty much flew through it. If you are looking for a book to entertain you but you’re not expecting it to leave a lasting impression on you, this is a good pick.
