How would you cope if, in a matter of minutes, everything you had—was no longer yours?
Pacific International Airlines Flight PI019—Flight 19—leaves Honolulu airport on a routine trip to Los Angeles on Thursday, January 17th, 2019. Two hours in, with 210 people on-board, the plane vanishes into thin air. An exhaustive search finds no trace of Flight 19, its passengers, or its crew, and the disappearance becomes modern aviation’s greatest mystery.
Five years later, an incoming plane asks for permission to enter LAX airspace. But there’s something unusual about this apparently routine request. It’s the missing Pacific International flight. What’s more, those on-board don’t yet know the year is now 2024. The last five years have passed them by in a matter of minutes.
“Flight 19” takes you through the months just after these people learn of their fate: their husbands and wives remarried, houses sold, jobs lost, possessions given away or disposed of, and loved ones dead and buried.
This is a story that will touch everyone who cares about the life they have.
Their jobs and possessions.
The places they call home.
The people they love.
Read Flight 19 and see how the passengers and crew react when they lose it all.
Life should never be taken for granted.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT FLIGHT 19 THE NOVEL:
FLIGHT 19: A tale of frustration, tension and terror.
I saw a Facebook article on this novel which intrigued me. I decided to purchase it on iTunes and was very pleasantly surprised. The book was well written and well paced, two qualities that are difficult at best even with the celeb Uber writers out there. What truly astonished me was that I didn’t notice any typos in it (Something that happens too often and annoys me a bit). Upon completion, I had an almost painful anticipation for the next book, a rare sensation for me. I’d give it 4-1/2 out of five stars. I’d give it 5 but I like to leave room for improvement. Or surprises. I’m always looking out for new authors, mainly because most of my favorites have passed away and substandard ghost writers have been engaged to continue various series. And it looks like I’ve found one. While the premise is cosmetically similar to a recent TV series “Manifest”, it goes in an almost 180 degree opposite direction. The story is Midas level rich for character development for future books. Personally, I’m pondering if they’re the next iteration of The Flying Dutchman.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I downloaded the very generous length sample and just had to purchase the full length novel to find out what happened in the lives of the characters I’d become so invested in! Well written and well paced, giving depth to the characters, with mini cliffhangers along the way, to keep you turning the pages for the answers. You will not be disappointed. Grant Finnegan has taken time to reply to his readers with news of a prospective sequel. I cannot wait to see what happens!
From reading the first paragraph I found it hard to put this book down ! I hope this story makes it to the big screen !
I really enjoyed it. Characters were relatable and it kept you turning the page.
Book grabs you right from the start thought provoking – what would I do if I was on the plane? Or if I was left behind? So many ‘what happens next’ questions. BUT the perfect way to stop. Don’t want to say too much as I don’t want to spoil it for others but I loved it.
Started the book last night – had to force myself to put it down after 30 mins. Straight back into it this morning as soon as my eyes opened! Loved it. Kept me interested from beginning to end. Plenty of twists, bIt of romance, lots of mystery. A fabulous read! Yes, ready for the sequel.
The story is so clever with an amazing twist. Made me think how I would feel if I were a passenger.
About the Author
Grant Finnegan is an avid reader of anything with the word ‘Thriller,’ in the genre. His favourite authors are many, though many are known to us all—Stephen King, Clive Cussler, and Australia’s greatest author (in his opinion) Matthew Reilly, to name a few. Grant’s first novel found him in Uluru, Northern Territory, taking in one of Australia’s (and to him the world’s) most stunning and jaw-dropping natural wonders. The Seventh List was largely based at this remarkable place, and visiting there to research for his first novel was a most memorable trips of his life. Grant suggests that Uluru should be on everyone’s bucket list. Grant resides in the bayside suburbs of Melbourne Australia, where he can be found wandering along the local beach with his wife on most days chatting about the world around them and taking in the fresh salt air. When he’s not at the beach he will be either writing his next novel, in the kitchen cooking up a storm, or thinking about when the next winter is going to come around so he can get on his Snowboard and ride the white powder. Preferably on New Zealand’s South Island, which he often calls one of his favorite places on Earth. Grant's second novel is due for release in early 2018.
