Shortfallby Gary Cochran
Terrorism in aviation has long been considered a threat, but now, more than ever the reality of the problem has become front-page news. A terrifying act of madness and stark terror awaits Carson Jeffers and his sixteen-year old son as they depart on a clear April night from Salt Lake International Airport. Minutes after take-off the life of one of America's most respected businessmen is changed forever, and the future of the United States hangs in the balance. Beginning with the crash of an Omega Airlines Boeing 767-300, Carson Jeffers is forced into a relentless race against time with the savage, but powerful terrorist, Esteban Moreno.
Together with Nichole Lewis, an Omega Airlines flight attendant, Carson faces impossible odds as they struggle to stay alive. Left with no other choice, they are forced to unravel a plot so sinister it rips apart their very existence. The theft of fifteen stinger surface-to-air missiles from Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, California catapults economic terrorism to a horrific new level.
As you experience the shrill sound of terror rising from the frozen marshlands outside Salt Lake, travel to the shores of Lake Geneva, and fall desperately from the skies over western Montana, nothing prepares you for the dimensions of global intrigue, unequalled terror, and frightening conflict as America is held hostage by La Libertad Occidental.
