5.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT REDA!
Phoenix Rising is the story of the born-again Pan Am, an airline that can upset some mighty investors nice profits from their monopolistic airline holdings in the US ,and they'll stop at NOTHING to stop the growing airline from entering their turf.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not his best.

The one thing Mr Nance does well is when he writes about action in the cockpit and the struggles of controlling a 747 jumbo as it veers off course. What he does not excel at is writing a tightly woven, action led thriller. The characters are well defined but this story gets bogged down in the politics and financial shennanigans of corporate greed and abuse of power. The runaround towards the end does nothing to quicken the pace but drags out the story for a few more chapters, which so easily could have been cutailed much sooner. Micheal Crichton's Airframe deals with aviation sabotage and is a better, well written story, which I would recommend rather than Phoenix Rising.

The book keeps you nailed to the pages, and it's REAL hard to put it down. The suspence is on TWo levels - the cabotage against the airline, and attempts to stop the airline financially, thus combining operational and managerial problems.
