More About This Book

Overview

The inaugural flight of Emirates Airlines new Boeing 797 departs from Kuala Lumpur at midnight bound for Brisbane carrying a select crew and only twenty one passengers, all invited celebrities. Three hours into the flight the passengers are awakened to news that the aircraft has been hijacked. They are debating storming the flight deck when the aircraft crashes into the Timor Sea near a small island. The aircraft breaks up but a few souls survive, a German LPGA star, a Brazilian formula one champion, an Australian tennis star, a retired Japanese diplomat, an Emirates executive, an Irish martial arts star, two American movie stars, an American businessman and a young Malay woman who was one of the flight attendants. They struggle ashore and other than two in desperate need of medical care, the wait for rescue may be like a vacation in paradise until one of the survivors tells them rescuers will not know where to look because the hijacker flew below radar for hundreds of miles and evidence points to the emergency locator transmitters being disabled. Instead of paradise they discover the island is used by ruthless pirates. The survivors have come ashore without so much as a pocket knife to defend themselves from the pirates and an enemy that even the pirates fear, Abu Sayyaf, the terrorist group responsible for the hijacking. When two survivors are murdered, the young Malay names the island Pulau Mati, island of death.

    It is difficult I am sure to write a blurb for the back cover that tells enough of the story without giving away too much or setting up the reader for disappointment. I was not disappointed but rather surprised. This story is not one of the over the top action adventures we see too often made into movies. It is thoughtful and realistic, delightful in some places, sad and bittersweet in others and triumphant in others. Although not a fantasy it does use one of the most compelling aspects of the classic quests, the need for each character to contribute their special talent if they are going to overcome dire adversity. Grey, the leader on this quest is one of the most compelling characters I have come across in fiction. I believe both men and women will find this to be true. It sounds like this character has already had adventures and will hopefully have more. The writing is smooth and fast reading and my only complaint was that it had to end.
