Overview

The extraordinary new suspense novel from one of the most exciting new thriller talents in years" (Vince Flynn).

Four years after the events of The Mullah's Storm ("an irresistible adventure story"-USA Today), jihadists strike the Afghan National Police training center in Kabul, killing many and wounding others, including Sergeant Major Sophia Gold. The injured are hurriedly loaded onto a C-5 Galaxy bound for Germany, but once airborne, the commander, Major Michael Parson, receives a message. The jihadists have placed bombs on some planes leaving Afghanistan, and the Galaxy is one of them. If Parson tries to descend-the bomb will go off.

Parson, Gold, and everybody else aboard are trapped at altitude, until either they or someone on the ground can figure out what to do. They can refuel in midair, but not indefinitely. The aircraft is deteriorating, the condition of the patients is worsening, the crew is tiring-and their biggest challenges are yet to come. The enemy is all around . . . and will take surprising form.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Young's riveting follow-up to The Mullah's Storm is an airborne version of the movie Speed. Soon after takeoff from Afghanistan, Maj. Michael Parson, the pilot of a giant C-5 Galaxy flying patients injured in a terrorist bombing to Germany for medical care, receives the message that there's a bomb on board and it's set to go off if the plane descends to a lower altitude. Sgt. Maj. Sophia Gold, who starred with Parson in The Mullah's Storm, lends a helping hand as the members of the air crew struggle to survive. Besides the bomb threat, they're running out of fuel; they're beset by storms with deadly lightning, devastating hail, and hurricane force winds; an active volcano is spewing ash into the atmosphere; and unfriendly nations that won't allow them to land even if they can defuse the bomb are trying to shoot them out of the air. Aviation thriller aficionados will cheer, and readers of any genre will gnaw their fingernails to the quick. Author tour. (Aug.)
