Unpublished Novel

In the 1990s I wrote a novel. I gave it to friends to read. They all said—as friends will—that it was great, but when I pressed them for detail, I found that most had not finished it. So, if you should actually start reading the thing, send me an email telling how far you got. In other words, where does it bog down. Critique is welcome!

The time frame is the late 1990s, just as Hong Kong's old Kai Tak airport was about to close. One of my writing goals was that everything had to be plausible, and all of the aviation related fictional happenings would have been possible back in the days before September 11, 2001. You'll see occassional [REF] links that take advantage of web page flexibility to see where the fiction meets fact. Clicking on the link will take you to the documentation at the bottom of the page, and clicking on the documentation [REF] link at the bottom will take you back to where you were reading.

I'm posting the novel chapter by chapter as time allows.
