Drowning: The Rescue of Flight 1421 (A Novel)

We rated this book:


Flight 1421 hadn’t reached cruising altitude when it experienced catastrophic engine failure. The pilots know the situation is grim, their only solution being to ditch the aircraft over the water. Will Kent’s primary concern is his young pre-teen daughter, Shannon. The passengers prepare for impact, their hands either clutching their loved ones or in prayer. The landing results in a number of casualties, and the flight crew jumps into water landing procedures.

However, Will notices something about their landing and the still-burning engine fires. The danger hasn’t abated with the crash, and conditions are not safe once off the plane. Will advises caution to a group of passengers, but most have disembarked on life rafts. The captain heeds Will’s warning and shuts the remaining dozen inside. The Coast Guard and Navy are notified, each second is critical and the window to avoid further catastrophe is closing.

Drowning is the second nail-biting thriller from the talented mind of author TJ Newman. The heart-stopping narrative goes full throttle from the beginning and doesn’t retreat. Newman’s flair in creating an intense human drama with characters of great depth is further illustrated in her second effort. This is an absorbing book that will grab a wide audience.
