About the Book

A shiny new personal jet is lost at night over the vast Saudi desert and air accident investigator James Hayward is assigned to find out why; it was touted as the world’s safest light aircraft and safe aircraft don’t just disappear from radar screens, do they?

He and his ex-fighter pilot boss, Katja, are faced with a wall of obstruction, almost denial. However, what they subsequently discover leads them into a web of intrigue and political corruption.

They find themselves alone, pitted against a new brand of terrorist; one that is ruthless, resourceful and organized with friends in high places.

Reviews (Excerpts)

- "Once you get into the story you can't put it down. Mr. Hardy weaves a very believable tale. the world and characters are well developed. A airplane with a perfect record crashes, but there's good reason it does. It wasn't an accident. Plenty of action and political intrigue, not just a book for the aviation enthusiast." - Rodney Carlson

- "From the opening sentence, the author pulls you into this past-paced thriller. Political corruption, secrets and intrigue combine to make story that keeps you wanting to find out more. A great read for those who enjoy suspense-filled adventures. " - Shanna Hatfield

- "There are technical details but just enough to make the story believable and have confidence in the authors credentials. He must have worked overtime on his research. The characters well thought out and Hayward I want on my side if there is going to be trouble! It's a story about now and was a great pleasure to read." - Mr. B. Berry

- "A very good book. I recommend it if you want an interesting story with credible characters, easy to read and not obvious as most of these books are. This is, in my opinion the best of the book and what makes it different. It takes you to different locations, Saudi Arabia, Germany, Italy ... with a perfect balance between technical explanations and chapters full of action." - Christina (Amazon)

- "The author has clearly done a lot of research [...] regarding the places and people who inhabit the plot. Having worked in the aviation world all my life I found the aviation related details particularly convincing. Highly recommended " - John Farley
