Mayday Nelson DeMille & Thomas Block read online review & book description:

"Fascinating and furiously paced...unrelenting suspense." - New York Times Book Review

"[Demille is] a true master." - Dan Brown, #1 bestselling author of The Da Vinci Code


Twelve miles above the Pacific Ocean, a missile strikes a jumbo passenger jet. The flight crew is crippled or dead. Now, defying both nature and man, three survivors must achieve the impossible. Land the plane. From master storyteller Nelson DeMille and master pilot Thomas Block comes Maydaythe classic bestseller that packs a supersonic shock at every turn of the page . . . the most terrifyingly realistic air disaster thriller ever. Like a growing tidal wave, the escaping air was gathering momentum.
A teenaged girl in aisle 18, seat D, near the port-side aisle, her seat dislocated by the original impact, suddenly found herself gripping her seat track on the floor, her overturned seat still strapped to her body. The seatbelt failed and the seat shot down the aisle. She lost her grip and was dragged after it. Her eyes were filled with horror as she dug her nails into the carpet, as the racing air pulled her toward the yawning hole that led outside. Her cries were unheard by even those passengers who sat barely inches away from her struggle. The noise of the escaping air was so loud that it was no longer decipherable as sound, but seemed instead a solid thing pounding at the people in their seats . . .

    Even though it was written in 1979 and updated in the 1990s, this book is well written and quite accurate. One of the most chilling parts is at the end when the plane lands and spins on Runway 28L in San Francisco...the same runway where the Asianic Air landed earlier this summer.

    By boysmumas An edge of your seat read page after page. Intense characters and the bad guys are super bad. Great ending and you will find yourself cheering when he brings that plane in. Amazing.

    What a great surprise! I wanted to read some early demille and couldn't put it down. Like a great Arthur Hailey novel from the seventies. You will love this one.

    I have read almost all of Demille's books and Mayday is not up to his normal standards. The premise is good but the plot has too many unrealistic situations to be credible. This is a co-authored book and not up to the normal Demille's quality.
