In addition, the airline, the insurance company, and the Navy are desperate to cover up the mishap--no matter what the cost.

First edition. Slightly cocked with accompanying waviness along the spine, a tiny abrasion on the front paste down and bumped corner, about near fine in about near fine dustwrapper with a touch of wear at the heel of the spine and wrinkling along the bottom front edge. Signed by the DeMille. The true first edition of this scarce title, a thriller co-written with Block, a pilot and DeMille's childhood friend. DeMille's co-authorship was originally unattributed, and the book club edition (lacking a priced jacket as this has) is sometimes mistakenly offered as a first edition. Very likely the most difficult DeMille book to obtain, particularly in this condition and signed. Although not marked in any way, this copy is from the distinguished modern first edition collection of Bruce Kahn.
Publishers Weekly, 2011-08-29 Scott Brick provides sizzling narration of this thriller about an amateur pilot trying to keep aloft a damaged jumbo passenger jet in the face of military ineptitude and corporate arrogance. Right from the start, Brick's crisp, somber narration hints at trouble to come. Matching the novel's plot, he increases the pace of his narration until an errant missile tears through the jet's fuselage, leaving only a handful of passengers alive. And that's when both novel and narration kick into high gear. Brick voices all of the book's characters with skill, but takes special care in his rendition of the likable, well-drawn protagonist. His John Berry evolves from a faltering man unhappy with his present and confused about his future to a commanding hero determined to succeed against all odds. Brick is equally successful in capturing the malevolence of the book's villains without falling back on stereotype. The voices he lends the gruff, bullying airline executive and the shady airline insurance representative are pitch-perfect. A Grand Central paperback. (July) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
