Book Review: Fatal Incident by Jim Proebstle

I just finished reading Fatal Incident by Jim Proebstle. It is a novel, based on true events. It is an amazing story of World War II conspiracy, including American traitors, Russian spies, and government cover-ups in the 1940s. The story follows a pilot named Nick Morgan, through a life of dating, marriage, private piloting, and then being swept up in flying for the army's Air Transport Command in Alaska. The story has many twists and turns, with a myriad of characters that range from easy to like to easy to hate. The callousness of some of the situations will anger you and a few things that may even bring you to tears. My most un-favorite character is probably Cricket and I really liked Nick up until the point where he does something I felt was immoral. Robert certainly made my skin crawl through most of the book. As the plot unfolds and the different characters join in their roles in the conspiracy, the story twists and turns, making it very hard to put the book down. Nick's plane is highjacked because it is connected to atom-bomb documents and he and the other nineteen on board face very dire circumstances. It is definitely a gripping story and didn't end at all the way I thought it might. Worth the read!
