Summary
"Jammer Davis has spent most of his life investigating aircraft accidents. When a small regional jet disappears over the jungles of Colombia, it is a tragedy like dozens of others he has seen...but for one terrible detail--his young daughter, who was enroute to a semester abroad in South America, is listed on the passenger manifest. A distraught Davis rushes to Bogotá and bulls his way into the inquiry. When the wreckage is located, it becomes clear the crash was unsurvivable. As the investigation gains momentum, the facts go astray. Two pilots had been shot before the crash, along with one passenger. The possibility of a hijacking looms large as the search begins to focus on two passengers who boarded the plane, yet their remains cannot be found. Davis uncovers an even more sinister plot behind the entire disaster--one that goes to the highest levels of the United States government. But how could it possibly involve his daughter?"--Jacket

Review
  • Jammer Davis has worked on several investigations for the National Transportation Safety Board, but this one is much more personal: a small aircraft with his daughter on board—on her way to a semester abroad—has crashed in Colombia. Quickly dispatched to the site, Davis is shocked to find no evidence in the wreckage of the bodies that should have been in two empty seats. The pilots, it turns out, were shot to death, and the empty seats appear to have belonged to a woman and the Secret Service agent guarding her. What happened to them? Why was the Secret Service even there, and could his daughter possibly have been involved?The more he investigates, the more he encounters pushback. Larsen has written other suspenseful aviation thrillers (Fly by Night, 2011), and fans of airborne crime fiction, if they don’t know his work already, should start reading him now. -- Ayers, Jeff (Reviewed 12-01-2015) (Booklist, vol 112, number 7, p30)
  • The stakes are personal for Jammer Davis in Larsen’s exciting third thriller featuring the airplane crash investigator (after 2011’s Fly by Night ). Larry Green, head of the National Transportation Safety Board’s Office of Aviation Safety, calls on Davis when an ARJ-35 passenger plane goes down in southern Colombia. Three crew members and 21 passengers were aboard, including Davis’s 19-year-old daughter, Jennifer. Davis flies the same day to Bogotá. At the jungle crash site, two are missing among the dead—Jennifer and another young woman, Kristin Stewart, who happens to resemble Jennifer. Other anomalies, such as bullet wounds in the back of the pilot’s and copilot’s heads, suggest a hijacking. When both Colombian and U.S. officials prove uncooperative, a frustrated Davis takes matters into his own hands. Aided by a drone and some hastily recruited allies, Davis goes on the offensive in some nice action scenes that are followed by some satisfying payback.
