Any synopsis of this nonfiction book would read like the plot of a movie thriller: In the wilderness of Alberta, a small passenger plane crashes, killing all but four men aboard. The stranded quartet could not be more dissimilar: An inexperienced pilot, a Canadian cabinet minister, a policeman, and the handcuffed prisoner who has been assigned to transport. Award-winning investigative journalist Carol Shaben, the daughter of the politician, reconstructs this 1984 disaster and its surprising outcome with a winning vividness and humanity.
