A lively dissection of history-making accidents... Negroni tracks the astonishing progress in understanding the combination of mechanical flaws and human frailties that bring down aircraft. -- Charles Bremner The Times Fascinating ... For all the horror stories in The Crash Detectives, the reasonable reader will leave the book more sanguine about modern commercial airline travel than before. Wall Street Journal The evolution of air safety is rooted in catastrophe.

She "gets it". -- Captain Chesley 'Sully' Sullenberger, author of HIGHEST DUTY and pilot of US Airways 1549, the 'Miracle on the Hudson' Mysteries are always fascinating; aviation mysteries are especially so because they involve ordinary people.
