DROWNING The Rescue of Flight 1421

by | Read by Steven Weber, Laura Benanti

Mystery & Suspense • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Narrators Steven Weber and Laura Benanti keep the adrenaline flowing in this thriller about a plane that crashes in the Pacific six minutes after its takeoff from Hawaii. Weber, who assumes the role of passenger Will Kent, among others, carries the tense opening chapters, in which passengers must decide whether to abandon the aircraft and hope they can stay alive in the ocean--or stay onboard until they're rescued. Will's wife, Chris, portrayed by Benanti, is at the command center, trying to navigate between the warring rescue teams. Will and Chris's family history plays a big role in this pulse-pounding story. Each narrator imparts an impressive amount of engineering information while keeping the plot and characters foremost in listeners' minds. The result is an immersive experience in which life and death hang in the balance. L.W.S. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2023]
