Blackout – John J. Nance
I think this is the first John Nance book that I’ve read. I’m going to take a look and see what other books he’s written.
The story is about an FBI agent investigating a couple of accidents that have caused airliners to crash. And as she is on her way, another airliner is about to crash, but fortunately one of the pilots is able to keep the airplane in the air, and tries to find a solution. Ultimately this pilot and several of the passengers are chased around the world as they attempt to thwart the planes of a shadowy organization that seems to be linked to the government, but isn’t the government. A group that seems to have it’s tentacles in so many places that they are already one step ahead.
This remarkably believable yarn is non-stop. Just when you think everyone is safe, and it’s going to slow down, the author ratchets it up a notch, and the adventure continues. I thought I was getting good at predicting where it was going, when another curve ball is thrown my way.
This is one of those rare books that you can’t put down. I read the whole think in less than a 24 hour period, and it’s not a small book.
Unlike many other authors, Mr. Nance, doesn’t waste much time with frivolous pieces added in that have nothing to do with the story itself.
If you are looking for a good read that you won’t be able to put down, that has a lot of mystery, intrigue, and keeps you in suspense until the very last page, then this is definitely the book for you!
