Mystery & Suspense • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1991

Follett's early thriller, reminiscent of the 1950s' classic THE HIGH AND THE MIGHTY, follows a plane load of passengers traveling thirty hours from England to the U.S. two days after the start of WWII. The Pan American Clipper is packed with a whole cast of characters, including a scientist fleeing the Nazis, a Mafioso being transported back to justice by an FBI agent, a movie star, a thief, a princess, and a Fascist . To complicate matters, one of the crew's family members is kidnapped to force the flyer to orchestrate an emergency landing. Tom Casaletto's glib performance makes this seemingly endless journey fly by with ease. His many accents are first-rate and more than make up for his tendency to pause unexpectedly in the middle of a sentence. A.L.H. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
