If you've ever had a beef with an airline, you'll love this story about what supposedly goes on behind closed doors. It may justify why you dislike the industry. The characters are believable and the story is compelling. The author has the reader hooked from the first chapter.

If you've ever worked in the tumultuous airline industry, or love knowing what goes on behind those first class curtains, Final Descent is wickedly fun to read! As a seasoned writer, T.D. Arkenberg is masterful and has crafted grand and complex characters, delicious plot lines, and creates unexpected turbulence throughout the pages to keep readers engaged. Final Descent soars and is sure to reach elite status!

Great first novel.  Fast paced, good humor, and a good twist near the end keep the reader involved in Final Descent.  It's a compelling read since  most people, trudging through the baggage or security lines, don't give much thought to the behind the  scenes do-se-do involved in running a big business like an airline.  The main character, Jim, is a good guy who's made of strong stuff and acts, because he loves his airline so much, to save his company from the clutches of management.  His efforts make for a worthwhile read.  I cheered for Jim and you will, too.
