A planeload of enraged passengers declares mutiny when their captain makes an emergency landing in the middle of a war zone in this action-packed thriller from New York Times-bestselling author John J. Nance. In a desperate attempt to cut costs, Meridian Airlines has given up on any pretense of customer service. The passengers on Meridian Flight Six from Boston to Cape Town are fed up with hours-long delays, uncomfortable cabin conditions, and rude airline personnel. But Brian Logan is more than a disgruntled passenger: He believes Meridian killed his wife and he's about to take revenge by lighting the fuse of disaster. When Capt. Phil Knight makes a forced landing in a hotbed of insurgents in Nigeria, he's facing more than a rebel firefight. Violence erupts inside the cabin as Logan leads the passengers in a revolt. But with the loss of radio contact, the civilians don't realize that NATO and the CIA believe their plane has been hijacked by terrorists and must be taken down.

A compelling read about air rage in the post-911 age, this novel takes an inept pilot, an airline bent on destroying its own reputation through horrible customer service, flight crew members who are either deliberately cruel or overworked, angry passengers, and one passenger with a justified grudge, and mixes the elements together for a potboiler. Add in some international intrigue and misjudgments by the military, and it drives up the tension that much more. The fact that airlines are increasingly treating their passengers with such disdain gives the book that much more of a grounded feel to it.
