It's a mystery that dates back to World War II--what happened to the USS Sturman and its crew. For Naval Investigator Nicholas Hammond, the search will challenge him...and the answers will, like bodies floating on the ocean, chill him.
It begins with a man waking, screaming. A series of memories have shaken him, "something to do with the Navy." For another man, his child-like drawings of men holding hands in frightened unity shatter his sanity. What both men share is fear.
Enter Hammond, cocksure and independent, assigned to find the link between these incidents and the disappearance of the Sturman. Was it a last act of war from a defeated enemy, or was it something more sinister...an experiment gone wrong from within?
Fast-paced, intricately plotted, THIN AIR is a thriller that defies time.

Those who remember the 1980s film starring Michael Pere should definitely check this out. First published in 1978, Thin Air tells the story of an NIS Agent investigating a discrepancy in someones service record. The investigation leads to a WWII experiment with far reaching implications. Simpson and Burger's book was plagiarized the year after publication when Charles Berlitz wrote his "nonfiction" book The Philadelphia Project.
I first discovered this book in the late 70's and it was one of my favorites. I reread it regularly until I lent it to a friend who never returned it. I was thrilled to find it as a Nookbook and immediately set about rereading it. I still enjoyed the book and recommend it as a fun sci fi adventure. Interesting characters, action and a darned good story make for a super read. I hope another favorite book, Ghostboat, by the same authors shows up as a Nookbook soon. Enjoy!
