Colonel John Quinn was a young, ambitious Air Force pilot
who loved to fly—until an Iraqi missile nearly ended his career, and his life.
Three surgeries and four years later, Quinn is functional, but not good enough
to fly. Assigned to the Pentagon, he’s prepared to spend the rest of his career
in a series of boring staff jobs.
Then a military Lear jet crashes shortly after takeoff in
the rural farmlands outside Washington, and Quinn is called to lead the biggest
investigation of his life. With this crash there are no survivors—a fact that
is particularly sensitive in the White House, as the jet carried just one
passenger: the President’s brother. The crash scene offers little in the way of
clues, and while the White House is pushing pilot error as the cause of the
accident, Quinn is uncertain. Too many Washington insiders, including Quinn's
former wife, a PhD with the National Transportation Safety Board, seem to have
a stake in the outcome of the investigation. Too many dodge the hard questions—or
turn up dead.
Filled with great characters and told with pulsing narrative
drive, The Passenger is further proof
that, as W. E. B. Griffin says, “Patrick Davis is the real thing.” Download and start listening now!
