Review by L. G. Cullens June 27th, 2019

As Mitch Matthews and his five-year-old daughter Lilly check-in for a flight from Hong Kong to New York over the North Pole, odd characters are already being introduced in curious incidents.

Then as the book blurb notes:
"A flight disappears over the North Pole. No distress calls. Vanished into thin air."

What happens is a well balanced matter of conjecture and innuendo with international and individual tensions rising as each page is turned to the very end.

To me, this is one of the better eco-thrillers I've read in a good while, and I read a lot. Buckle up, there's turbulence and mayhem on this flight, all realistic enough to give you goosebumps.
