When Captain Phil Knight makes a forced emergency landing in war-torn Nigeria, abandoning his copilot to certain death, violence erupts inside the airplane as the enraged passengers attempt the first-ever commercial airline mutiny. But what they don't know could kill them: The unscheduled loss of radio contact has led NATO and the CIA to believe they have been hijacked by terrorists and must be carrying a deadly chemical weapon into the heart of Western Europe. In the pressurized last moments as Flight 6 approaches, NATO scrambles to uncover the truth of the plane's cargo, while Navy pilots bring the 747 into their gun sights and the lives of innocent passengers hang in the balance. Expert in-flight details, a compelling cast of characters, and spine-tingling action prove Nance once again to be "the king of the modern-day aviation thriller" ( Publishers Weekly ).
