Take a trip back in time to the era of the flying boat in this scintillating, suspenseful historical novel by famed author Ken Follett.  Picture it: September 1939.  England is about to enter World War Two with Nazi Germany. In Southampton, the same port that launched the doomed Titanic, the world’s most luxurious airliner—the Pan Am clipper—takes off for its final flight to neutral America. The passenger manifest includes the cream of society and nobility, the dregs of humanity, and others in between who are all fleeing the war for differing reasons. What should have been an enjoyable flight takes a dark turn when the weather turns nasty and a plot to bring the Clipper down into the ocean begins to unfold.  Who are the lucky survivors and who are among the casualties?  Find out by ordering this title online through the book link at the top, by calling NCLBPH and requesting a copy or by downloading the title from BARD.
