Storm macht sich daran, diese Fragen zu klären und den Verbrechern das Handwerk zu legen ...
Der Held ist sympathisch und das Buch liest sich leicht, doch hat es viele Längen. Ein paar Stunts machen noch keinen Thriller!

*Disclaimer - I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
The plot is an ex gov't scientist is missing. Only Derrick determines that significance. Planes are falling from the skies, It is up to Derrick Storm with aide of his Father Carl Storm and CIA Agent Clara Strike to find out why and to stop it. .
Derek Storm is a larger than life secret agent who is kind of affiliated with the CIA but better described as a private contractor that the CIA use on occasions when any normal agent just won't do. This book starts with a flight and a climber on his way home (who we later learn is Storm) when he feels something wrong with the plane and he ends up climbing on the wing to fix the problem and help it land safely. He then finds out, once on the ground, that three other planes were not so lucky. From there we see him travel to Panama, Monaco, Egypt and Gibraltar among other places as he tries to figure out what happened to the planes and why those in particular were targeted and what it was they were using to bring them down.
Storm always seems to get into impossible situations that any normal 'spy' would be hard pushed to get out of. However Storm always seems to be prepared with just enough knowledge and equipment to avert every disaster. These books offer just the right amount of escapism without going too over the top.
What I always love about the Richard Castle books are the references to the TV show - the best one so far was in Wild Storm. One of the victims turned out to be none other than Pi, a fruitarian cult leader who preys on young college girls although they didn't go so far as to name one of his victims Alexis!
Part way through the book everything took on a whole new meaning. It was eerily similar to the Malaysia Airlines crash of flight MH17. Reading about fictional accidents is one thing but when something like this actually happens where a plane is apparently shot down with a weapon and innocent people die it starts to make you think. It saddens me to think that we have come to this place again where innocent people are caught in the crossfire of a fight that has nothing to do with them.
Reality aside, this was a great book. I'd love to know who actually writes these books as I'm quite sure that it's not Nathan Fillion - although it would be an awesome twist if it did actually turn out to be him!!!!
