Fly By Wire
By: Ward Larsen
With its revolutionary fly-by-wire technology, the C-500 had become the airplane of choice for freight operators worldwide. Until a routine delivery goes horribly wrong.Falling like a stone from six miles up, a brand new C-500 crashes in central France, killing two pilots aboard.
With over one hundred C-500s in service around the world, interest is keen to get to the bottom of the mystery. When French officials take over this highly public investigation, they call in the best there is: they call Frank Jammer Davis.
A retired U.S. Air Force fighter pilot, Davis is part of the NTSB’s go team. With a reputation for getting things done and for steamrolling anyone who gets in his way Davis starts to dig.But just as Davis starts his investigation, news of the crash is overshadowed by a more spectacular disaster: suicide bombers attack oil refineries across the world, sending governments and financial markets into a tailspin.
A relentless Davis keeps working, but when he finally uncovers the cause of the crash, and its terrifying connection to the terrorist attacks, it is a conspiracy of unthinkable proportions. A conspiracy he might not be able to stop.
