Final Approach by John J. Nance
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
If you like a good mystery and the Discovery channel then this is right up your street. People life's are thrown into total disarray by an aviation disaster at Kansas City airport when two aircraft collide on the taxiway. Charged with finding out the cause of the crash Joe Wallingford Inspector in Charge from National Transport Safety Board struggles with the politics surrounding his every move. It is not as if trying to decide whether sabotage, weather, design , interference or human error is hard enough, the politics start to interfere with the investigation. The author has written a very exciting mystery cleverly using the investigation process as his backbone to the book. First published in 1992 I am very glad we are getting another chance to read it, but now with everyday things like Airbus, mobile phones and proper airport security in their infancy.
