GROUND CONTROL MEETS
ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN


A Pulitzer Prize Nominee

Three hundred thirty-three fatalities and no survivors.

So begins Pulitzer Prize finalist Jean Heller's chilling hard-boiled saga, as a flight crashes on takeoff when one of its engines explodes in midair. After that, it's a toss-up - you may or may not be able to catch your breath as the thriller loops and careens to a twisty climax.

The deadliest accident in U.S. aviation history means it's the biggest week of journalist Steve Pace's career. Much as he's already over the horrors of the aviation beat, he has no choice but to rise to the occasion. He's a whip-smart reporter with integrity and grit, and the body count is rising rapidly - outside the downed plane.

As he hunts down the ultimate scoop, he steps into what appears to be a Watergate-type cover-up. With the list of possible witnesses conspicuously dwindling, he figures it's just a matter of time before someone blows the whistle - as long as they don't mysteriously die first.

Fans of government conspiracy mysteries and reporter sleuths will find an inspiring hero in reporter Pace. Award-winning writer Jean Heller leverages her own journalistic prowess to spin together a complex web of a hard-boiled mystery. Each twist and turn of the investigation will pull mystery fans deeper into Pace's quest, as he races against deadlines and death threats.
