The Emperor, an experimental airliner of daring design, soon runs into trouble on her maiden flight to New York and Bermuda. Violent storms, icing and faltering engines give way to mysterious, terrifying tremors . . .

Penned in a small space under enormous strain, a jealous rivalry between the co-pilots threatens the lives of everyone aboard the fear-packed aircraft.
