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.… (meer)

This one is a GRIPPER! Thriller set in an airborne 747. ( )

Excellent book. I read this after I saw the movie with Richard Dean Anderson many years ago. ( )

What should have been a routine international airline flight turns into a media event when it's revealed that the passengers of Quantum Flight 66 may have been exposed to a deadly omega virus, similar to Ebola. Professor Helms boards Flight 66 coughing and generally feeling ill. When he suffers an apparent heart attack mid-flight, Captain James Holland, requests an emergency landing in London. To his alarm and confusion, his request is denied. The captain and his copilot soon realize that no country will let them land. Before long, the CIA gets involved, and the director believes the best way out of the situation is to have the plane destroyed by an infamous terrorist group.

I thought the possibility of a doomsday virus being carried on a commercial airline flight was an interesting premise. The book moved along fairly quickly and built up tension until the CIA characters started getting involved. The book feels a bit dated since it was originally written in 1995 and so many things have changed, especially in airline travel. Still, it was enjoyable enough and I will definitely check out other books by this author. ( )

I have a stack of old audio tape cassette books that I want to whittle down so I popped the first cassette in a cheap player that I had bought. The player buttons broke off when I turned the side over! I was so engaged by John K. Nance’s thriller, Pandora’s Clock that I held the down the metal remainder of the play button to hear the other side. This is the first time that I ever endured pain to listen to an audio book! It was that good. Thank goodness I found out that my old boom box still could play!

If you like airplane thrillers, you will love this story. Some of it is overly dramatic but that it is part of the fun. The reader was the author and he did a superb job of getting me sitting on the edge of my sit and excited. We had the Ebola scare here in the Dallas area so the story seemed somewhat ironic. A man collapses and later dies after he has boarded the plane. He was give mouth to mouth resuscitation. There are 235 passengers on the 747 Boeing. The pilot James Holland has the worst nightmare of any pilot when he finds out that the dead passenger may have been infected with a deadly flu virus. From then on, you can imagine his difficulties and what could potentially happen to his poor passengers.

I highly recommend this book if you love thrillers! ( )
