Final Approach by John J. Nance
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Final Approach takes the reader through the politics and mystery surrounding a devastating airplane crash in Kansas City that will keep the reader guessing to the end. The story begins when a plane comes down for landing during a dangerous thunderstorm with windshear. The plane crashes into another plane that was waiting to take off on the runway. Not only was the conditions outside treacherous for landing a plane, there were other issues that could have caused the plane to crash. This book investigates this mystery of who is at fault and what should be done afterwards to prevent accidents in the future. The different explanations are fully explored through the book until the revealing end. For example, did the pilot purposefully drive the plane into the other one or was there a conspiracy to murder a radical senator on board one of the planes? Were powerful radio transmissions turned on to disrupt the flight controls? These are one of several scenarios that Joe and his team explore.
I felt like this book truly has all the elements that make it a good suspense thriller. Between the budding attraction between Joe and Susan, tragedy and loss, mystery of who is at fault, drama between the characters and who they are representing, and finally justice for the survivors. One thing that I really like about the book is that it takes place in the Dallas area. In some of the parts I can see exactly where the character is at and what the scenery looks like down the highway - that was really neat! I never read anything from this author before Final Approach but I'd really like to read more from John J. Nance. I give Final Approach a 4 out of 5 stars. The story was a really long but good read. I received this book free of charge from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review
