When Charles Fend announces the Fend 100 aircraft, the world's first fully autonomous commercial airliner, he is praised for being a pioneer in aviation history. The Fend 100 will bring a new dawn of commercial flying to the world. One where human pilots are replaced by AI machines that will navigate over 100,000 flights per day. The first flight is expected to be a celebratory spectacle - the Fend headquarters crowded with news teams, technology lovers, and aviation enthusiasts. The atmosphere is jovial, everyone eager to celebrate.
Until something goes terribly wrong.
A mysterious cyber attack on the Fend network creates questions and chaos...
Who is responsible?
Is it the wealthy ex-KGB agent, Pavel Morozov, who has shown up from a past Charles had long-forgotten?
Or is it Charles' son Max, the top suspect on the FBI's short list?
And just who is Max Fend?
Is he the man that the 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?
But the biggest question of all - why is there a top secret personnel file on Max Fend that even his FBI investigator isn't allowed to see?
GLIDEPATH is a race to uncover the truth, before it comes crashing down from above...
What readers are saying:
"Once I started reading this book I couldn't put it down..."
"One of the best action thrillers I have read in the past year."
"I really enjoyed reading Andrew Watt's "Glidepath", despite missing sleep in the process...I even signed up for Andrew's email which I've only done for 2 other authors. Wow."
"I read just about every espionage thriller I can. I am so glad I ran into Watts series of novels. I often get bored with the plot and rarely finish most books. This is not the case with Andrew Watts."
"This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. From the beginning to the end it was hard to put down. The story was unique and the characters engaging. I'm ready to read more Max!"
"It has plenty of suspense, mystery and action to keep the reader enthralled in the book. I just could not put it down, once I started reading it."
"Glidepath combines yesterday's Cold War espionage, today's terrorist environment, and tomorrow's technology into a thrilling plot. Watts story telling rates right up there with the more popular writers of today."
"As a fellow pilot (CFI, AGI & T-Wheel), I especially appreciate his technically accurate aviation terms and actions."
"...reads like a melding of the world of aviation suspense created by J J Nance, and the world of rough and tumble intrigue created by Lee Child in the Jack Reacher series. I have read a lot of thrillers in both genres, and I find it hard to recall a novel which combines these two worlds as well as this one does. Don't pass this one up!"
