Joe Martin had been on many salvage operations, but his gut feeling told him this one was different. The insurance company and the beautiful widow of the dead pilot had hired him to find out what he could about the crash, but some things were best left alone.

Before long, what should have been a routine mission becomes a hair-raising adventure packed with danger and betrayal. Then a batch of priceless emeralds are thrown into the equation, and Joe’s life is on the line.

    " Rather dated, and not particularly aviation-related. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kenneth Flusche | 12/26/2013

    " Excellant read from 1969 "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Connie Sandlin | 5/26/2013

    " It passed the time while I waited for my husband at the doctor's office, but I don't think it's in any way memorable for characters or plot, only the setting - you don't often come across books set in Greenland. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Macpherson | 5/20/2013

    " Enjoyable enough. The location of greenland was pretty novel. The big twist at the end concerning the narrator was unexpected. I like it when a twist works, which is usually when you don't know when one is coming. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hyderali Shaikh | 2/9/2013

    " Well, this book by Jack Higgins was NOT that much of intriguing & interesting like those two I read before. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisal | 1/30/2013

    " This was another airplane read - I like something that will be engorssing for a few hours and thrillers fit the bill. This one was a bit dated: it was originally published in 1968 and it showed with a bit of non-PC language here and there. Overall entertaining but not brilliant. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rick | 1/26/2013

    " An early Jack Higgins novel. Seem a little simplistic now, but still a fair read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary Ann | 10/3/2012

    " An interesting twist or two at the end, but probably not my cup of tea as a favorite author/genre. "
