Pressestimmen

"John Nance has added another intriguing volume to his body of work. This fascinating story of technology gone awry, rich with accurate detail, satisfies and terrifies as it takes the reader on a wild ride through the night sky on an airliner no one on board can control." - Captain Sully Sullenberger -- Author of #1 New York Times Bestseller Sully, and Making a Difference, Stories of Vision and Courage from America's Leaders; Pilot of US Airways 1549, "Miracle on the Hudson"

Kurzbeschreibung

"A wild ride through the night sky ..."--Capt. "Sully" Sullenberger, author of #1 New York Times bestseller (and film) "SULLY"

Over the Atlantic in the dark of night, the electronic brain of Pangia Airlines Flight 10 quietly and without warning disconnects all the cockpit controls and reverses course on its own.
The crew of the huge Airbus 330 at first sense nothing, the flight displays still showing them on course to New York. But with puzzled passengers reporting stars on the wrong side and growing alarm over the sudden failure of all their radios - and when armed fighters pull alongside to force them to land - the confused pilots discover that Flight 10 is streaking back toward the hyper-volatile Middle East and there is nothing they can do about it.
With an alphabet soup of federal agencies struggling for answers and messages flying between Washington, and Tel Aviv where the flight began, the growing supposition that Flight 10 may be hijacked is fueled by the presence of a feared and hated former head of state sitting in first class, a man with an extreme Mid East agenda who may somehow be responsible for the Airbus A-330's loss of control. As frantic speculation spreads, the possibility that the unresponsive airliner could be the leading edge of a sophisticated attack on Iran designed to provoke a nuclear response drives increasingly desperate decisions.
As time and fuel runs low, flying at full throttle toward a hostile border ahead, Captain Jerry Tollefson and First Officer Dan Horneman have to put their personal animosities aside and risk everything to wrest control from the electronic ghost holding them – and perhaps the world - on a course to certain disaster.
And in the "Hole" - as the war room in Tel Aviv is called - the interim Prime Minister of Israel grapples with a horrifying choice in the balance between 300 airborne lives and the probability of nuclear war.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great story, great book. 21. November 2016
Von DariceZ - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This was a great, fast-paced thriller. I found the plot believable and thorough. I don't pretend to understand all the technicalities, but it certainly seems to me that such a thing could happen, and I will certainly think twice about the possibilities next time I hop on a plane. I'm not going to outline the plot; just tell you that it was well thought out and developed. The characters were surprisingly well developed for such a fast-paced story; you did get to know them and their motivations at least to a degree: this isn't a character-driven story. Kept me guessing and on the edge of my chair. Now to what is, from me, high praise. The book is well written, well edited, and proofread. I hate being distracted in my reading by plodding prose, poor grammar, and incessant typos. None in this book. I was not once distracted by a fault of the book or story . . . and only a few times by the antics of my dogs and cat, the call of sleep, or hunger. I had not read anything by John Nance before. I will start now.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another winner!! 17. Januar 2017
Von Kindle Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I have kept my eyes open for another John Nance book for years. FINALLY!! And it was worth the wait. Mr. Nance has created another exciting novel about flying. If you like flying, airplanes, great characters, a mystery and suspense, get this book. Trying to prevent hijacking of aircraft is a big problem to solve. Mr. Nance shows that even the attempt to stop it could actually create it........ An exciting book. Highly recommended.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Intricate Airline Thriller! 31. Mai 2017
Von thx255 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Beginning with Final Approach, Captain Nance has been a major contributor in the creation of the Airline Thriller genre and sustained its continued following. Lockout is his latest worthy addition. This book has all the ingredients; an intricate plot, an cockpit crew humanized and engaging for the reader, mysterious passengers, advanced technology, and several groups working toward and against a solution unbeknownst to each other. A most enjoyable read!
4.0 von 5 Sternen Can't wait for the movie 13. Juni 2017
Von H. Holm - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Lockout would make a great movie, IMHO, because it is so dialogue & image based. The plot is well designed, and the text is well-written, sustained in rhythm, credible, well researched, suitably complex, even titillating, and generates unending suspense. I might have hoped for more character diversity/development and more varied and colourful contexts, i.e.: more culturally realistic especially given all the nations involved, in order to reflect actual international diversity. But that might have doubled the size of the book. The reader will note the author’s acute familiarity with the psychology of flying and his ability to get under the pilot's skin when describing thoughts, feelings and resulting actions. Indeed, he puts the reader directly in the cockpit at times - all for the price of a book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Very Good Flying Tale! 19. Januar 2017
Von foxtrotoscar - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
John Nance has another winner in "Lockout." The plot keeps the reader on the edge of his seat from start to finish. However, it does get a little muddled near the climax with the multiplicity of aircraft systems and procedures being discussed. The author handles this quite well, with clear and concise descriptions of what's going on. I have read innumerable stories about airplanes and their problems, but have never found anyone who can put as much drama and suspense into a flying story like Nance For aviation enthusiasts, this is a must read.
