SKYHOOK by JOHN J. NANCE
John Nance's reputation for nail-biting suspense has grown
steadily with bestsellers like Headwind, Blackout, and
In Skyhook, Nance crafts another winner. The "boomerang
box," a high-tech computer program designed to save a plane
experiencing flight trouble, is Dr. Ben Coles's baby. After
a test run over the Gulf of Alaska goes awry, he suspects
someone has sabotaged the plane's computer systems. And
mysteriously, and almost simultaneously, April Rosen is
horrified to learn that her father's plane has narrowly
escaped a midair collision over the same patch of sea.
While Dr. Coles considers the uncomfortable notion that
someone within his own company might wish him harm, Rosen
begins her search for the cause of her father's hair-
raising "near miss." But what both don't know is this:
their fears have a common source. They are being watched by
people in the Pentagon, who believe that the two might
stumble upon the secret that will destroy them all before
Skyhook has a chance to succeed.
What is Skyhook's real purpose? Is it commercial or
military? And will its early implementation compromise the
safety of fliers everywhere? In the hands of the talented
John Nance, the race for the answers will leave you hanging
on to your seat.
