This novel by Steve Kistulentz is a mixed bag. It builds to a plane crash on New Year’s Eve and the impact on various characters. It reads like the disaster films Poseidon Adventure and Towering Inferno. There is a frustration as you learn about the individuals. You shouldn’t be mystified as to why there is so much detail about their lives. I kept wanting to skip ahead to the crash. Kistulentz is a talented writer that knows how to use metaphors and descriptive language. Unfortunately the story and plot just aren’t compelling enough to peak our interest.
