Whenever a plane goes down in the U.S., a Go Team made up of experts is assembled by the NTSB to investigate. Those people - each of them a leading expert in a specific area - are known as informally as Crashers.

When a passenger plane, a Vermeer One Eleven, slams into the ground outside Portland, Oregon, a team is quickly assembled to investigate the cause. Under the leadership of the IIC (Investigator in Charge), Leonard Tommy Tomzak, a pathologist who recently quit the NTSB who also happened to be in the area when the Vermeer One Eleven went down, the team gets to work as fast as possible. Assembled by Susan Tanaka, the inter-governmental liaison from the NTSB on this crash, the team includes a variety of experts with highly specialized skills. Usually the team has months to determine the cause of a crash, but this time it's different. This time, the plane was brought down deliberately, without leaving a trace, and this was only a trial run.

In L.A., Daria Gibron - a former Shin Bet agent, now under the protection of the FBI - spots a group of suspicious-looking men. Missing her former life of action, she attaches herself to them only to learn that, somehow, they were responsible for the plane crash and are preparing for another action. While her FBI handler tries to find her and save her, Daria risks her life to try to get close enough to learn what's going on and thwart the coming terrorist action. But time is running out and her cover story is running thin.

This is a fresh and utterly compelling thriller, an original mix of action, investigation and a brilliant cast of characters that grabs the listener in the way few novels can and fewer do.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Starlak | 2/17/2014

    " This isn't the kind of book I normally gravitate to - at the reccomendation of an avid reader I picked it up. I knew that investigators spend a lot of time after a plane crash but haven't given much thought into all of the perfectly orchestrated procedures that must be followed. I enjoyed that aspect of the book a lot. The story was fine, typically thriller, suspense story much like any other... you, as the reader, know who the bad guy is, but the investigators fall into their trap. They figure figure it out in the end and all is resolved. Remember my disclaimer - I don't typically read this type of story (or watch it on TV or at the Theater). Because I live near where the plane crash took place the setting was familiar and somewhat interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria Luttrell | 1/11/2014

    " I noted that some negative comments about this book were from pilots. Well, I'm not a pilot or aviator therefore any aviation mistakes were not noticed by this reader. I liked the book and the plot. The suspense was good and the book held my attention. I liked this book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jeremy Hornik | 12/4/2013

    " Pretty bad. It's seemingly based on some cool reporting on NTSB investigations. I'd like to read that. The rest is silly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 8/2/2013

    " I wish I had read this first before Breaking Point, but it was good to be able to go back and get the backstory on the characters who appear in the latter book. A good page turner, perfect for a summer afternoon. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy Michael | 3/5/2013

    " I liked it..agree it would make a good thriller on a tv movie. I felt a bit bogged down with lots of characters and technical aspects of the NTSB..at least in the beginning. The last 3rd of the book did get more exciting and hard to put down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Larry | 1/24/2011

    " Interesting book about an arcane calling, the investigation of plane crashes. Edges toward the threshold of your suspension of disbelief at times but overall, reads fast, is exciting and informative about the investigative process. If you're a page-turner thriller reader you'll enjoy. "
