An ex-U.S. President evades his would-be kidnappers aboard a Boeing 737 in this thrilling new skyborne novel by the bestselling author of Blackout.

Athens, Greece. As a Boeing 737 noses into its gate, its crew is suddenly confronted by Greek officials waiting to arrest one of its passengers, a beloved ex-president of the United States, John Harris. Believing Harris's life is in danger, Captain Craig Dayton stages a daring escape by backing the jet away from the gate without clearance and taking off down a vacant runway.

The dilemma for Captain Dayton and his precious cargo is that Peru has signed an Interpol Warrant for President Harris's arrest, using the same treaty employed by Spain to extradite former Chilean dictator Pinochet. The Peruvian government alleges that Harris is personally responsible for a supposed CIA-led strike against a biological weapons factory during his term of office. But Harris's-and the U.S. State Department's-nightmare is this: There is no place to hide because every nation in the Pan-American federation has signed the treaty and any one of them must honor the warrant and give Peru what it wants: a presidential pawn to humiliate on the international stage.

Captain Dayton flies Harris and his crew on an against-the-clock mission to find a safe haven-from Greece to Sicily to Ireland-while Harris's rumpled and outgunned lawyer wrestles an international team of legal sharks snapping at their biggest prize yet.
