Item Description

Would the Twin Towers still be standing if federal air marshals were flying on September 11, 2001? Ex-sky marshal Jack High thinks so, and he’s about to make the government and airlines pay for their gross negligence. Armed with a top-secret smart gun, he hijacks a new blended-wing airliner and demands that the passengers take a journey with him back to 1970 when the original sky marshals flew. With a taste of ashes still in their memories of 9/11, the passengers savor first class meals and comply with the skyjacker's demands. Andrea flies first class for a living, compliments of the besieged airlines. He is a college professor, a plastic surgeon, a Buddhist monk, or anyone a sky marshal can be, except, of course, a sleeping passenger. To survive boring hours of wakefulness, waiting for a skyjacker to strike, she writes a journal that challenges the man of her past with the woman of his present. Highly addicted to the anonymity of the job, Andrea explores drugs, violence, and sex, loses sight of the destination, and turns the story into a terrorism of obscurity--the very thing the passengers are helpless to destroy. Written by a former sky marshal, this book takes place in jumbo jets, communal apartments, hotel rooms, and blue rooms. Boardrooms and courtrooms are not on the itinerary. Nominated for best literary fiction of 2012 by the Military Writers Society of America and recipient of an Honorable Mention Award.
