Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From the author of Jurassic Park, Timeline, and Sphere comes this extraordinary thriller about airline safety, business intrigue, and a deadly cover-up.
 
“The pacing is fast, the suspense nonstop.”—People
 
Three passengers are dead. Fifty-six are injured. The interior cabin is virtually destroyed. But the pilot manages to land the plane.

At a moment when the issue of safety and death in the skies is paramount in the public mind, a lethal midair disaster aboard a commercial twin-jet airliner flying from Hong Kong to Denver triggers a pressured and frantic investigation.

Airframe is nonstop reading, full of the extraordinary mixture of super suspense and authentic information on a subject of compelling interest that are the hallmarks of Michael Crichton.
 
“A one-sitting read that will cause a lifetime of white-knuckled nightmares.”—The Philaelphia Inquirer
 
“The ultimate thriller . . . [Crichton’s] stories are always page-turners of the highest order. . . . [Airframe] moves like a firehouse dog chasing a red truck.”—The Denver Post
 
“Dramatically vivid.”—The New York Times

    One of those books you just couldn't put down. There is technical aircraft jargon but it's easily explained and easy to skip over. Highly recommended read
  • Great Read!

    I was very pleased with this novel. M.C. never ceases to amaze me. This is such an in-depth mystery-thriller that I couldn't set down. I probably finished this in a week and I'm not an avid reader like some. It is definitely worth your time. *WARNING* This isn't very family-friendly. There are sexual situations and foul language.
  • Makes one think!
