Never before has a novel explored the grimly fascinating world of NTSB crash investigators in such riveting, authentic detail. Opening with a grisly crash site scene, Terminal Event follows NTSB investigator Joe Durant on his hunt for clues. His search is obsessive: his wife was on the plane and died in the crash.Desperate to find answers for his devastated fifteen-year-old daughter, Sarah, Durant sets out to prove that the aircraft was destroyed by an evil bomber. With others determined to blame the crash on pilot error, Durant painstakingly searches through the tiny metal fragments, twisted chunks of aluminum, scattered body parts, and charred bits of flesh and bone that will point him to the killer. His pursuit turns frantic when the bomber sends the investigators a taunting signature -- a fragment of the same kind of metal used in the explosive device, something only the bomber would know -- and promises to bring down another plane in ten days. Durant races to find the bomber before he can strike again.Combining high-voltage suspense with the kind of steely reporting that made The Perfect Storm and Into Thin Air bestsellers, Terminal Event is a spellbinding, moving story of a man who rediscovers his soul in the single-handed pursuit of a monster.
