* As riveting an airline drama as you will ever read, and the first novel by co-writer and master storyteller Nelson DeMille.
Twelve miles above the Pacific Ocean, a missile strikes the Trans Flight 52, a supersonic passenger jet bound for Japan. The flight crew is crippled or dead. Now, defying both nature and man, three survivors must achieve the impossible. Land the plane. From master story-teller Nelson DeMille and master pilot Thomas Block comes MAYDAY - the classic American bestseller that packs a supersonic shock with every turn of the page, the most terrifyingly realistic air disaster thriller you will ever read.
