Description
Disaster, or something close to it, strikes an airliner en route from Hong Kong to Denver. Three passengers dead, 56 injured, the interior cabin destroyed. Whether through luck or skill, the pilot gets the plane down, more or less in one piece.

But to what end? The public, jaded with excuses, calls for a fix, and Congress calls for an investigation. Where will it all lead?

"Brisk, exciting and slick." (Publishers Weekly)

display_description #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER From the author of Jurassic Park, Timeline, and Sphere comes this extraordinary thriller about airline safety, business intrigue, and a deadly cover-up.

"The pacing is fast, the suspense nonstop."—People

Three passengers are dead. Fifty-six are injured. The interior cabin is virtually destroyed. But the pilot manages to land the plane.
At a moment when the issue of safety and death in the skies is paramount in the public mind, a lethal midair disaster aboard a commercial twin-jet airliner flying from Hong Kong to Denver triggers a pressured and frantic investigation.
Airframe is nonstop reading, full of the extraordinary mixture of super suspense and authentic information on a subject of compelling interest that are the hallmarks of Michael Crichton.

"A one-sitting read that will cause a lifetime of white-knuckled nightmares."—The Philaelphia Inquirer

"The ultimate thriller . . . [Crichton's] stories are always page-turners of the highest order. . . . [Airframe] moves like a firehouse dog chasing a red truck."—The Denver Post

"Dramatically vivid."—The New York Times
