When commercial airline pilot Bill Hoffman's family are kidnapped, he's given the choice of crashing the plane he's flying to save his family OR landing the plane safely at the cost of his family's lives. But what the kidnapper hasn't counted on is Bill's resilience and resourcefulness. As time runs out, the cabin crew hatch a plan but is it too little too late? Can Bill and his crew find a way to save the passengers AND his family?

Falling is an exhilarating, high-octane, American thriller. The action begins right at the start and doesn't let up. It keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout. I couldn't help having a giggle that the pilot and co-pilot are called Bill and Ben. As any British person of 'a certain age' knows, Bill and Ben are The Flowerpot Men lol (Google it if you don't know what I mean!). 

Anyway, moving swiftly on, I really enjoyed the book. Isn't it everyone's worst nightmare being caught up in a terror plot mid-flight? It was so intense and gripping I almost had heart palpitations. It's definitely a book to seek out if you love action and thrills.

The only way the family will survive is if the pilot follows his orders and crashes the plane.

Enjoy the flight.
