What happened to MH370? How did Amelia Earhart disappear? When have quick-thinking pilots averted catastrophe and kept hundreds of people alive? And what, if any, are the lessons we have learned from these accidents?

Aviation journalist and air safety investigator Christine Negroni uses science, performance psychology, extensive interviews with pilots, and the accounts of crash survivors to answer these questions, and more. Alternately terrifying and inspiring - Negroni might just cure your fear of flying, and will definitely make you a more informed passenger.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A lively dissection of history-making accidents * The Times *
Fascinating . . . For all the horror stories in The Crash Detectives, the reasonable reader will leave the book more sanguine about modern commercial airline travel than before. * Wall Street Journal *
Negroni is an experienced, well-respected US journalist who has spent most of her career following the airline industry; her knowledge and enthusiasm are evident throughout. * Mail on Sunday *
Christine Negroni is a talented aviation journalist who clearly understands the critically important part the human factor plays in aviation safety. She "gets it". * Captain 'Sully', The Miracle on the Hudson *
The evolution of air safety is rooted in catastrophe. Christine Negroni pulls back the curtain on the people, the places, and the tragedies that have shaped this process over the decades - an unflinching look at a system that most of us take for granted. -- Patrick Smith, bestselling author of COCKPIT CONFIDENTIAL
Mysteries are always fascinating; aviation mysteries are especially so because they involve ordinary people. In The Crash Detectives, Christine Negroni combines her investigative reporting skills with an understanding of the complexities of air accident investigations to bring to life some of history's most intriguing and heartbreaking cases, reminding us that even in the 21st century, aviation still holds elements of the unknown. * Bob Woodruff, ABC News *
