I was a kid who grew up on 1970s disaster movies like The Poseidon Adventure, The Towering Inferno, and Airport. So naturally, I loved T.J. Newman’s 2021 debut thriller Falling. But I wondered, could she make a career out of airplane disaster stories? 

It appears the answer is yes, she can. Drowning is another fast paced thrill ride. Shortly after takeoff, a commercial airliner crashes into the ocean off the coast of Hawaii. The beginning of this book grabbed me right off the bat and never let go. Newman’s description of the plane in distress and then crashing into the ocean is so realistic it creates a visceral sensation. But I was truly surprised at the turn the story took. A handful of survivors are still inside the plane when it sinks in the ocean. Now it’s a race against the clock as first responders try to figure out how to rescue the small group before they run out of oxygen or the entire plane floods. Whew! I couldn’t stop listening. Lots of edge of your seat suspense! 

Steven Webber and Laura Benanti provide a fantastic narration for the audiobook. This is a pulse pounding story that never lets up. This one will be one of my top ten books for the year. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Drowning is out May 30th. Thank you @simon.audio and @librofm for the complimentary review copy. 

QOTD: any plans for the weekend? 
I’m going out to lunch with some friends tomorrow. One friend just got back from a trip to Italy. So I can’t wait to hear all about her adventures.
