If Falling weren’t about a plane hijacking, this would be the perfect book to read on an airplane—captivating, thrilling, and packed with nonstop action. Pilot Bill Hoffman is about to take off on a cross-country flight when he receives a call from his wife’s phone. Except the person on the other end isn’t his wife—it’s a man who is holding his wife, son, and infant daughter hostage. The terrorist gives Bill a choice: crash the plane he’s flying, or his family dies. Imagine the movie Speed, but on an airplane. The author, T.J. Newman, wrote the book while she was a flight attendant and staffed on cross-country flights. Falling is what a summer thriller should be—taut, suspenseful, and absolutely unputdownable.
