Baker & Taylor
When the first-ever commercial airline mutiny occurs on Meridian Flight 6 during an unscheduled and emergency landing in Nigeria, NATO and the CIA believe that the plane has been hijacked by terrorists who are carrying a lethal chemical weapon, and as they prepare to shoot the plane down, the lives of innocent passengers are at risk. 75,000 first printing.

Nance's latest high-speed drama begins with an airline in crisis because of poor customer service. The passengers on Meridian Flight Six have endured many hours of abusive treatment by rude and inept airline personnel and have been pushed to the breaking point. A baby's life is threatened inadvertently by a mean-spirited flight attendant. A troubled surgeon, traumatized by his wife's recent death, is tested by a defensive, insecure airline captain. And a young South African man racing home to Cape Town is consumed with worry about his missing mother.
When Captain Phil Knight makes a forced emergency landing in a small war-torn country , abandoning his copilot to certain death, violence erupts inside the cabin, as enraged passengers attempt the unthinkable: mutiny. But what they don't know could kill them. A misinterpretation by U.S. intelligence and Captain Knight's poor training combine to plunge Flight Six into mortal danger.

A compelling read about air rage in the post-911 age, this novel takes an inept pilot, an airline bent on destroying its own reputation through horrible customer service, flight crew members who are either deliberately cruel or overworked, angry passengers, and one passenger with a justified grudge, and mixes the elements together for a potboiler. Add in some international intrigue and misjudgments by the military, and it drives up the tension that much more. The fact that airlines are increasingly treating their passengers with such disdain gives the book that much more of a grounded feel to it.
