You can save hundreds of lives.

Or the one that matters most . . .

The atmosphere on board the inaugural non-stop flight from London to Sydney is electric. Numerous celebrities are rumoured to be among the passengers in business class and journalists will be waiting on the ground to greet the plane.

Mina is one of a hand-picked team of flight attendants chosen for the landmark journey. She’s trying to focus on the task in hand, and not worry about her troubled five-year-old daughter back at home with her husband. Or the cataclysmic problems in her marriage.

But the plane has barely taken off when Mina receives a chilling note from an anonymous passenger, someone intent on ensuring the plane never reaches its destination. Someone who needs Mina’s assistance and who knows exactly how to make her comply. It’s twenty hours to landing.

A lot can happen in twenty hours . . .

    Clare Mackintosh, you are just an expert at what you do!! What is particularly refreshing for me is that Clare is writing across genres and nails them all!
    This is a thriller like none I’ve read before. To be fair that’s probably because this kind of novel wouldn’t be my usual fare but I’ve read everything Clare has written so I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed.
    Mina and Adam are parents to 5 year old Sophia. Mina is cabin crew for a large airline and Adam a police officer. Their marriage is falling apart, his work is falling apart due to an undisclosed gambling habit, and to top things off hijackers have targeted Minas work trip to Australia.

    But the hijackers have targeted Mina specifically and have exploited her home life to pressure her to allow the hijack situation on board the aircraft to unfold.

    Every single chapter is tense, totally compelling and although it felt very OTT drama at times I could not put it down, no matter how ridiculous I thought it was getting.
    And that’s all down to this wonderful author. Bravo Clare, you’ve nailed it.
