A private plane goes down on the short flight from Martha’s Vineyard to Teterboro. On board are two extremely wealthy and powerful men and their wives, one a media mogul and the other a private banker. The mogul’s two children are aboard as well, and an artist invited at the last minute to hitch a ride to the city. The only survivors are the young son of the media mogul, and the artist, who improbably swims to shore with the boy. What follows is the investigation into what happened and why, and the media firestorm, and conspiracy theories. A gripping and realistic page turner.
