One of the first things I noticed about Flight To St Antony was the Dramatis Personae and Acronyms and Definitions. Both are invaluable to this book. There are a great many characters in this book and the official jargon can be daunting to someone not familiar to the aviation industry (like me). Tony Blackman brings expertise to his novels. Blackman successfully combines mystery and romance to create an enthralling read.
Peter Talbot is an expert in the aviation field. At the insurance companies request He is investigating the forced landing of a twin-engine aircraft. Only 69 of the 245 souls on board survived. The heroes of the tragic accident were two flight attendant. One flight recorder is missing and the other malfunctioned. Several other puzzling facts make this a nightmare investigation. Peter and Helen (flight attendant) are determined to find the answers to the many questions surrounding the tragic accident.
