Description
There is no antidote for terror Captain James Holland is the pilot on a routine flight from Frankfurt to New York, packed with people eager to be home for Christmas. When a passenger collapses from what appears to be a heart attack, Holland is forced to request an emergency landing at London's Heathrow Airport. But to his great surprise, the air traffic controllers will not let him land in England -- they tell Holland that his sick passenger has contracted a dangerous new form of influenza and that the plane must return to Germany. But when German officials also refuse the landing, and other European countries follow suit, Holland begins to suspect that he's in much more trouble than anyone's letting on. In fact, his sick passenger is carrying a deadly virus accidentally released from a Bavarian laboratory, and it is feared that everyone on board is now infected. At the same time, someone with access to the CIA's computers wants to shoot the plane out of the sky, and there is a United States ambassador on board with powerful terrorist enemies who want to see him dead. While the panic on the ground spreads from the White House Situation Room to a small airport in the Ukrainian Republic, Captain Holland has only one concern: Where and when can he land? Pandora's Clock-- the most gripping, heart-stopping read of the year.

display_descriptionCarrying a passenger infected with a deadly supervirus, a 747's pilot searches desperately for a place to land in this suspenseful tour de force from New York Times-bestselling author John J. Nance On a snowy road in a German forest, Prof. Ernest Helms sees a man trying to break into his car. After a scuffle, Helms escapes with his vehicle, unharmed except for a cut on his hand. Hours later, he collapses aboard a flight from Frankfurt to New York. Capt. James Holland radios London to plan an emergency landing to save Helms. And then the nightmare begins. Heathrow denies Holland permission to land because Helms has been stricken with an ultracontagious pathogen that threatens the entire planet. When Germany also refuses to let him land, Holland and his passengers are prisoners of the sky, caught between a deadly disease and a world that would rather shoot down their plane than risk contamination by guiding it to safety.
