Summary

Jammer Davis has spent most of his life investigating aircraft accidents. When a small regional jet disappears over the jungles of Colombia, it is a tragedy like dozens of others he has seen...but for one terrible detail, his young daughter, who was en route to a semester abroad in South America, is listed on the passenger manifest.

A distraught Davis rushes to Bogotá and bulls his way into the inquiry. When the wreckage is located, it becomes clear the crash was unsurvivable. As the investigation gains momentum, the facts go astray. Two pilots had been shot before the crash, along with one passenger. The possibility of a hijacking looms large as the search begins to focus on two passengers who boarded the plane, yet their remains cannot be found.

Davis uncovers an even more sinister plot behind the entire disaster - one that goes to the highest levels of the United States government. But how could it possibly involve his daughter?

Excellent book in the series.

Like the other books in the series this one has very interesting plot and is backed up by solid technical knowledge of the author. One of the more interesting books I have a listened this year. Lector as usual does the great job especially with a Spanish accent.

Feel guilty but I really enjoyed this

Okay nobody is going to win a Pulitzer for this. But it was a lot of fun, fast paced. Made me giggle a few times. I had a good time with this, recommended for a fun read.

my favorite Jammer story yet!

This one is exciting and funny, with several hero types, and some serious scumbags. If you like your cavalry Han Solo Rambo style, this is the book for you. Colombian drug lords and kidnappers, US coverup, a plane crash, and corruption in the police. There will still be a few surprises even after you've pegged the bad guy. The narrator did a great job with both the French and Spanish accents, except for the hard g in Cartagena. And I can't tell if the beer-sandwiches-and-stories "siesta" was an author mistake or a narration mistake. Nobody's perfect, and I enjoyed the book.

Not bad, better than okay, but didn't get me.<br />

It was okay, but never really got me going. It was okay is about how I rate it.

Excellent, detailed detective story

Ward Larsen is a rapidly improving writer of great merit, although he does have the modern writers fashionable disease of over use of the ridiculous cliches, "long moment and blew out a long breath," sigh. That's my only caveat.

Jammer Davis is an excellent character, who is a retired pilot who now works for the NTSB as a flight accident investigator.

The close detail of the nature of these investigations will not be comfortable for those afeared of flying, but they are superbly traced. It is a grim business, but fascinating.

The narrator is competent with rather too much of a penchant for accents for my taste, but that doesn't bother some listeners.

Good stuff, enjoy.

Outstanding suspense mystery/thriller!

Passenger 19 is not great literature, but it is a fast paced, exciting, entertaining, and fun mystery thriller with lots of intense suspense and a clever plot. Passenger 19 is the third novel in the aircraft accident investigator Jammer Davis series. A small passenger jet has crashed in the jungle of Columbia (South America) with no survivors. Jammer Davis' 19 year old daughter is seen on video boarding the plane just before take off, but her body is not found. Narration by Tim Campbell is exceptionally good.

The first two novels in the series also earned 5 star ratings.
