"A fascinating Sci-fi Suspense novel of love, betrayal and possibilities..."
Jordan is a United Airlines pilot in the future trying to
provide the best life she can for her six-year-old daughter
Roberta whom she lovingly refers to as Boo. This was to be
a routine flight that would only take her from her daughter
for only a couple of days. Ever since her husband's death
she hated to be away from Boo for too long.
On her return flight from Hawaii to the California the 747
is plucked out of the sky and held helpless in a huge cargo
bay. Whose cargo bay is it and why have they been taken?
This book comes in the wake of the 9/11 tragedy and these
thoughts lead our main character to wonder if this is
another terrorist attack. Trying to preserve her own
sanity and the people of her flight, Jordan finds herself
in the role of leader and negotiator. What she didn't count
on was whom she would negotiate with not only didn't speak
her language but also somehow ignited her passion with just
a touch or a familiar gaze.
Kao is a man tormented by his experience as a prisoner of
war. A man who has locked himself up tight to protect any
and all feeling he might hold. Saved by his father the
esteem leader of the ship, Kao sets out to do his father
proud and take care of the new refugees. The last thing he
anticipates on his routine mission as a negotiator is to
find the key to his heart on the other side of the airline
Both are reluctant to give into each other for their duty
must come first but as time passes each realize they both
share an open wound the other can heal; a loss that the
other can help to fill. For Jordan has just been told
Earth and her daughter Boo are gone.
I found this book to be very well-written, with a plot that
kept turning you towards trust and distrust of various
characters and kept you guessing what the truth of their
situation really was. Amongst all this stress and
confusion, the feelings of love and loss that both Kao and
Jordan share starts to create a bridge to each other's
This book was fascinating as it explored the different
dynamics of Jordan as a mother, a pilot, a leader, and as a
woman. The balance of it all is tenuous but if done right a
wonderful chemistry can be built. And Susan Grant has found
that chemistry in this novel.
