High Rollers by Jack Bowman

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

There is a warning on the cover of this book “Do NOT read on a plane”. You should take heed. It really is very realistic, frightening stuff. It is a little unsettling even sitting on the ground! Tom is an aeroplane accident investigator who has been demoted for speaking up against the authorities when he believes he’s right. A string of plane crashes brings him back unofficially. The man is also a gambler and a bit of a womaniser (echoes of James Bond perhaps?). Both of these traits are integral to the plot … and what a plot. If you can, this is a one-sitting book, truly suspenseful, fast paced, exciting stuff building to a tremendous climax. Highly recommended.

If you like Jack Bowman you might also like to read books by M R Hall, Matt Hilton and Gerard Seymour.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst


High Rollers by Jack Bowman

When the engine of a 737 tears itself apart at Los Angeles Airport, Tom Patrick is in the wrong place at the wrong time - playing poker at a nearby casino. He's been losing at cards and probing pipeline leaks ever since his big mouth led to his fall from grace as the National Transportation Safety Board's top air-crash investigator. Now he can't wait to come in from the cold. Sidelined by the official investigation, Tom starts to dig anyway. And when another 737 crashes for what looks like similar reasons, it's clear that something could be terribly wrong with the world's most popular passenger jet. Risking everything, Tom Patrick sets out on a global paperchase, racing against time and ruthless killers - before planes and people start falling out of the sky like bloody confetti. Brace yourself for high Octane, High Risk. High Rollers.
