"On a foggy summer night, eleven people -- ten privileged, one down-on-his-luck painter -- depart Martha's Vineyard on a private jet headed for New York. Sixteen minutes later, the unthinkable happens: the plane plunges into the ocean. The only survivors are Scott Burroughs -- the painter -- and a four-year-old boy, who is now the last remaining member of an immensely wealthy and powerful media mogul's family. With chapters weaving between the aftermath of the crash and the backstories of the passengers and crew members -- including a Wall Street titan and his wife, a Texan-born party boy just in from London, a young woman questioning her path in life, and a career pilot -- the mystery surrounding the tragedy heightens. As the passengers' intrigues unravel, odd coincidences point to a conspiracy. Was it merely by dumb chance that so many influential people perished? Or was something far more sinister at work? Events soon threaten to spiral out of control in an escalating storm of media outrage and accusations. And while Scott struggles to cope with fame that borders on notoriety, the authorities scramble to salvage the truth from the wreckage."

This was a new author for me and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to his story. Would like to see more of his work in near future as this one kept me wanting to hear more and more and it was hard to stop listening as so good.

How refreshing to listen to a story about a decent guy and the daily choices that go into crafting a life that is true to himself. Loved this!

It wasn't that good, to be honest, but I was entertained. The beginning was the best part. I did not like the end. It had so much build up and potential, only to be let down at the end. It'll never be a good movie. Too much stuff involving the TV news, which doesn't translate well. The Bill O'Reilly character was an extreme caricature of Bill and Nancy Grace. The going back in time on each character got to be annoying, hurting the flow. It became more of a commentary on the news media treatment of people than anything else.

Survival fiction set along the East Coast of the US about a plane crash. Shares the stories of the passengers both pre and post-crash and how their lives are forever changed by this tragic event. Sucks you in and keeps you engaged until the very end!
