Reviewers have called John J. Nance "a wonderful storyteller" (Chicago Tribune) who gives readers the kind of book they want: "so compelling it's tough to look away" (People), "more addictive than morphine" (The Dallas Morning News), "the non-stop read of your life" (Rocky Mountain News).As his new thriller Blackout begins, a Boeing 747-400 rises through a beautiful Hong Kong sunset on its way to Los Angeles. But within minutes, the plane is rocked by an explosion outside the cockpit that leaves one pilot dead and another blinded. The huge jet shudders through its descent while hundreds of passengers hold on for their lives.Kat Bronsky, an FBI agent and terrorism specialist, is assigned the hunt for a Global Express business jet seen nearby prior to the attack. Could the explosion have been a cruel twist of fate? Or could the phantom Global Express have employed some new kind of weapon? Bronsky tracks the Global Express crew across the Pacific to the American Northwest and a breathless, edge-of-the-seat showdown.

A mysterious technology and a shadowy organization form the threat for this airline thriller that crosses the Pacific and features the welcome Kat Bronsky, back after her introduction in The Last Hostage. Nance has a good way of driving up the tension.

Okay at best, it pushed the limits of credibility and transforms a rookie FBI agent into a female Rambo caricature
