Description

Investigative analyst Fredrika Bergman tackles a new case-this time involving the US government-in the next pulse-pounding book in Kristina Ohlsson's internationally acclaimed crime series. Shortly after a crowded New York-bound Boeing 747 takes off from Stockholm, a bomb threat is found in one of the aircraft's lavatories. The demands are directed at both the Swedish and US governments. Police superintendent Alex Recht teams up with the energetic and often abrasive Eden Lundell from the security service's counterterrorism unit to deal with the hijacking. Fredrika Bergman, who is currently working at the Justice Department, returns to the police force to act as a liaison between the government and the police. The investigation team soon realizes that the plot behind the hijacking is far more complex than they initially thought, and they also must battle against the US government's fear of a new terrorist attack. Now it's a race against time as Fredrika, Alex, and Eden search for possibilities to save the plane and its passengers. Will they find a solution before the plane runs out of fuel?

Professional reviews

"Justine Eyre demonstrates her vocal dexterity in delivering this Swedish thriller. Four hundred hostages are in the middle of a transatlantic flight. The team that stands between them and sudden death is headed by Swedish analyst Fredrika Bergman. This is the fifth book in the crime series that features both Fredrika and Stockholm-based policeman Alex Recht. Eyre brings out the feisty core of Fredrika in a rapid, consistent delivery. Her swift pace carries listeners through the brief chapters and keeps them waiting for more. She provides a capable treatment of both male and female characters, using a husky undertone for Recht. A well-crafted story that maximizes fears about terrorism in public spaces. M.R. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
