by T. J. Newman
Praise For This Book:
"An unputdownable thriller that will take you on a wild ride full of twists and suspense." -Good Morning America

"The frenzy for Falling is understandable: At every turn, Newman cranks the tension in unexpected ways that still satisfy the thriller lust. Her insider's knowledge comes through in details that not only bolster the book's credibility but also catalyze the plot." -Margaret Wappler, Los Angeles Times

"Terrifying ... Buckle up for a chilling summer read." -People (Best Books of the Week)

"A rich and assured debut ... Emotionally complex in surprising and refreshing ways ... Falling is expertly paced-if you were to begin reading this book at LAX, you'd finish it right as you began your descent into JFK." -USA Today (3.5 out of 4 stars)

"A white-knuckle thrill ride." -Newsweek

"One of the most talked-about debuts of the year. Like all good thrillers, Falling gets off to a dramatic start and maintains its momentum ... Newman's various narrative strands resemble high-voltage live wires. One tense predicament replaces another, from poison gas attacks to mutinous passengers to orders to kill the co-pilot or shoot down the plane. The suspense is heightened by the fact that the terrorist is not open to negotiation." -Malcolm Forbes, Minneapolis Star Tribune

"The summer's buzziest beach read." -Los Angeles Magazine

"Bound for JFK out of LAX, pilot Bill Hoffman has no idea he's about to be given a choice: Either crash the plane or his family will be murdered. The author, a former bookseller and flight attendant, seems to think of everything - every trick, every error, every advantage - in a plot that executes more barrel rolls than a stunt plane on the Fourth of July." -Bethanne Patrick, Los Angeles Times

"One of the year's best thrillers ... This novel is like the films Die Hard and Speed on steroids ... Newman keeps up an extreme pace from the first page." -Library Journal (starred review)

"Brilliant ... Incredibly suspenseful ... With abundantly human characters, natural dialogue, and a plot that unleashes one surprise after another, this could be the novel that everyone is talking about this summer." -Booklist (starred review)

"A superlative debut ... This tense, convincing thriller marks the arrival of an assured new talent." -Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"High-octane drama ... Newman's background means Falling brings a freshness and depth to the genre. While the story is propelled by the impossible situation Bill and his captive family find themselves in, at its heart is the relationship between the tight-knit crew... It's an eye-opening look into the reality of working on a plane." -The Guardian
