"It's not about the crash, Bill. It's about choice. It's about good people seeing they're no different from bad people." - 'Falling' by T.J. Newman
Bill Hoffman, a commercial pilot, is enroute from Los Angeles to New York City when he learns his family has been kidnapped. The kidnapper's demands are simple. Kill the copilot, gas the passengers and crash the plane. If he doesn't comply, the kidnapper will kill his wife and two children.
This novel was released to much hype and marvelous reviews by acclaimed thriller authors. And I'm here to tell you, all the praise was justified.
The tense, fast-paced plot is filled with twists. The main characters are heroic and three-dimensional. The dialogue is realistic. The settings, particularly on the aircraft, are immersive.
