By USA Today bestselling author Andrew Watts. A high-octane thriller made for fans of Lee Child and Vince Flynn.
When Charles Fend announces the Fend 100 aircraft, the world's first fully autonomous commercial airliner, he is praised for being a pioneer in commercial aviation. The Fend 100 will bring a new day of commercial flying to the world. One where humans take a back seat to the AI machines that fly and navigate over 100,000 flights per day. The first flight is a celebratory spectacle — the Fend headquarters crowded with news teams, technology lovers, and aviation enthusiasts. The atmosphere is jovial, and everyone is eager to celebrate.
Until something goes wrong.
The Fend 100 begins to descend over the Atlantic, and neither the engineers on the ground nor test pilots aboard can override the controls…
Who is responsible?
Is it the wealthy ex-KGB agent, Pavel Morozov, who has shown up from a past Charles had long-forgotten?
Or was it Charles' son, Max — on the run from the FBI after he was accused of sending Fend Aerospace corporate secrets to a criminal enterprise?
And just who is Max Fend?
Is he the man that media makes him out to be? The wild playboy son of an aerospace tycoon. Or is he what the FBI suspects? An international criminal, mixed up in a Russian espionage game. And why is there a top secret personnel file on him that even his FBI investigator isn't allowed to see?
GLIDEPATH is a race to uncover the truth, before it comes crashing down…
