"SoCal Appproach, this is Trans Pacific flight 545. We have an emergency."
When the control operators get a distress signal from Trans Pacific flight 545 asking for an emergency landing and 40 ambulances along side of their landing site, they knew something was terribly wrong.
The Trans Pacific Airline Co. immediately sends out an investigating team that has to figure out what the heck happened on flight 545 and the best way to prevent it happening again. But they have to do it all in a deadline of 1 week before the press gets the story and shuts down the airline company.
During their investigation, the team runs into threats, old records about the twin jet-liner that the disaster occured on, and even a discovery that uncovers the shocking truth.
This is a great book for those who like suspense. I feel that the author, Michael Crichton describes the actual reality about what really happens in airline companies. The only problem with the book is that it is 348 pages of meetings, meals, and looking at the plane inside of a deserted hanger. Other than that it is a great book. I really recommend it.
