My favourite Chrichton novel. I must have read it a dozen times. It has all the ingredients of a good thriller - a compelling heroine in more and more danger as she learns more and more about the corruption she's happened across. Even though I now know all the twists and turns, it still has me turning the pages in anticipation every time I read it.

This truly was one of those books I could not put down. Once I started it, I simply had to finish it. Only Crichton has the ability to turn something like the mechanics involved in building a plane into a plot that kept me turning pages. Intense, enjoyable, and fun. I definitely recommend this one!

An interesting view on the Airline industry. Not a whole lot of excitement, but overall a decent read...
