Picks and Pans Review: The Last Hostage
by John J. Nance
Page-Turner of the Week
AIRBRIDGE FLIGHT 90 FROM COLORADO Springs to Phoenix is in desperate trouble. A terrorist, unseen by any of the 130 terrified passengers and crew members, is apparently holding pilot Ken Wolfe at gunpoint, demanding that federal officials arrest and indict a known child molester for the torture-murder of a young girl. He claims to have a bomb that he will detonate if he is not obeyed. Chasing the Boeing 737 across the skies, FBI hostage negotiator Kat Bronsky is the authorities' only hope of reaching a safe resolution. Author John Nance, a Tacoma, Wash., airline captain and media commentator on air safety issues, provides a thrilling ride, with enough inside-the-cockpit details and nervy plot maneuvers to keep even the most experienced thriller addicts strapped into their seats for the whole flight. Hostage doesn't let a reader go until the last page. (Doubleday, $23.95)
