Breaking Point
Dana HaynesHigh above the mountains of Montana, a twin turbo prop plane plunges from the sky and crashes into the forest. On board are three members of the NTSB: pathologist Tommy Tomzak, Navy vet Kiki Duvall, and former FBI agent Isaiah Grey. Known in the field as “Crashers,” they believe the wreck is no accident—the plane was brought down on purpose—and the culprits have only just begun. Led by an enigmatic, self-proclaimed patriot known as Calendar, a ruthless team of mercenaries are determined to stop the trio from blowing the whistle on the weapons trade. With time running out—and fire raging closer to the wreckage—the Crashers must stand up and fight…or go down in flames.
