Crashers is an exciting novel, one that has constant action. While the story is interesting, sometimes there are just too many details on how exactly a NTSB investigation would be run. However, more than making up for that fact are the characters that inhabit this world. Tommy and his crew are very intriguing and definitely the best part of the book. There also some tense moments, making the reader aware of the constant danger. This is a novel that will keep readers involved and wanting more.
Leonard “Tommy” Tomzak may have tried to quit his job with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) but it didn’t really stick. Especially once Tommy hears of a plane crash not far from where he is attending a medical conference. Tommy is the first one to respond and as a result becomes the lead of the investigation, which initially is handled as a normal case. Then there are hints of terrorism and the investigation turns into a whole different animal. It is up to Tommy and his “crashers” to figure out what has happened — and to stop it from happening again. (MINOTAUR, Jun., 352 pp., $24.99)
