In this Article:
Six minutes after takeoff, Flight 1421 crashes into the Pacific Ocean. During the evacuation, an engine explodes. Water floods the plane. The surviving passengers force the doors closed—but it’s too late. The plane sinks to the bottom, twelve passengers trapped inside.
Two hundred feet below the surface, engineer Will Kent and his eleven-year-old daughter, Shannon, fight for their lives, waist-deep in water.
An elite rescue team on the surface led by professional diver Chris Kent is their only chance for survival. Shannon’s mother and Will’s soon-to-be ex-wife must work together with Will to save their daughter and the passengers. The airtight doors keep the plane sealed, for now, but the plane and their lives teeter on the edge of an undersea cliff.
There’s not much time.
There’s even less air.
Devastating emotional power makes for heart-stopping suspense. An unforgettable thriller. A family’s desperate fight to save themselves and the people trapped with them against impossible odds.
