By Avid Reader HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 17 Nov. 2016
Format: Kindle Edition
Dan Horneman has 500 million dollars in his bank account, after selling his internet company. But he feels he was lucky and wants to prove himself by becoming a respected airline pilot. His training was skimpy, teaching him to fly using every electronic aid available rather than by the feel of the plane. Jerry Tollefson is rather more experienced, having started in the US Navy. In the prologue Tollefson hands over the controls of a Pangia World Airways 737 for a landing at Anchorage; but to test Dan he also disables most of the automation. Dan almost crashes the plane, with Tollefson having to take over and save the day. Cue disgruntlement all round.

On the fateful Airbus A330 flight three years later, Dan finds himself co-pilot to Tollefson's captain on a flight from Tel Aviv to JFK. A VIP on board is Moishe Lavi, the ex-Prime Minister of Israel who has been strident in his views that Israel should carry out a pre-emptive strike on Iran. In a parallel thread we hear that the wrong A330 has been taken out of storage in the Mojave desert for Pangia. Later, we're told that this same A330 is the plane Dan and Tollefson are flying. It turns out that the plane has been fiddled with, a box of tricks being inserted between all of the controls and the normal onboard computers. Just after leaving Irish airspace an encrypted signal is received and the black box takes over, and turns the plane round to retrace its steps. The problem being that 600 miles after Tel Aviv lies Tehran, and the Iranians will either shoot the plane down or launch nuclear warheads on Israel.

The rest of the book is the story of the crew's battle to wrest back control. Plus every US intelligence agency and the president struggling to work out how it all happened, and come up with a fix.

No pun intended, but what a beautifully crafted story. Several threads that knit together as if it was a jumper knitted by granny.
The characterisation is on point, the skill displayed in wracking up the tension and the intrigue was first- class.
The reason I enjoy this type of well researched novel is the belief that it could actually happen, who knows what goes on in the black and secretive world of intelligence and poli tics. Well worth a read at no point did the writing slow down, nor was it littered with irrelevance. The finale was just what I wanted.

John Nance has been called the "master of the aviation thriller" and in "Lockout", his first book in ten years, he proves he fully deserves that title.
"Lockout" narrates in real-time the battle to save a stricken airliner, from the ground and on the plane itself, as time (and fuel) run out. The "Lockout" in the title relates to the pilots being unable to regain control of the plane after its in-flight controls lock: not by accident but rather by deliberate electronic interference. Nance is an aviation veteran and the technical detail provided in the book, which add to the vivid reality of the drama, is excellently described by the former airline and test pilot. The drama is set amidst sky high Middle East tension between Iran and Israel and allows insight into the rivalry between the various American intelligence agencies as the suspicion develops that Pangia 10's plight is the result of an undercover Black Op gone wrong.
Packed full of action, thrill, political intrigue and tension this book is bound to be a bestseller and deservedly so.
(My review was based on an eBook file provided to me free of charge by the publisher through NetGalley. My review is totally independent.)

Took me a few pages to get into the characters and the story but when i did it did deliver, ended up as a bit of a page turner, was hard to put down. Did enjoy the book and Mr Nance is now on my author list to keep an eye on.
