A bestselling author's terrifying and inspiring story of survival
In this extraordinary book, the author of such bestsellers as Snowblind and Smokescreen uses his journalistic gift to portray his own heartstopping brush with death. Around midnight on June 17th, 1979, Air New England flight 248 crashed into the woods on Cape Cod, killing the pilot and leaving nine survivors- including Robert Sabbag-wounded and stranded in the woods.
Based on interviews with fellow survivors and his own recollections, Down Around Midnight is Sabbag's gripping account of what happened on that foggy night and his attempt to come to terms with its impact. The result is a survival tale in the tradition of Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air and a deeply personal story of learning how to live with what can never be forgotten.
