The Description

Publication Date: March 13, 2023

Captain Kate Gallagher has a plane to land and a daughter to get home to. But first, she’s got to contend with a confrontational co-pilot, blizzard conditions, and something far more treacherous-a plane contaminated with a lethal computer virus. When the controls refuse to respond to her commands, she has two choices: Turn the plane around or trust her instinct.

One day later, the world’s press is picking through the mangled remains of Flight 394 and crying pilot error. To clear her name, Kate must endure humiliation and blame, and the risk to herself and her family, until she comes face to face with the madman who created the virus. There, she uncovers a shocking conspiracy that has already zeroed in on a new target: another plane, another deadly disaster.

With only seconds to save the 262 passengers on board, Kate Gallagher will fight her way back into the pilot’s seat and up into the air, in a life-and-death race against time, and a computer virus that is wired, running, and ready to kill again. And the price for saving all those lives may be only one… hers.

The Review

Pilot Kate Gallagher finds herself thrust into the media spotlight when the plane she’s piloting crash lands in New York. She’s adamant there was a flight control problem, but investigators are leaning toward pilot error.

Author Kam Majd delivers an action-packed adventure in High Wire. Determined to prove her innocence, Kate pulls in her mentor for advice. Meanwhile, a second storyline develops involving Searchlight, the company that owns the STAR system, a navigational system used in planes.

Someone is sabotaging the STAR system as part of a devious blackmail scheme. How many more planes will be impacted, and how many lives will be lost? As a woman of integrity, Kate doesn’t appreciate how readily pilot error is suggested in her situation. Her various encounters with the media only make her more entrenched.

Kate races against time to put all the pieces together as opposing forces try to throw her off course. Packed with action and an all-too-real scenario involving compromised software, Hire Wire goes full throttle.

From start to finish, High Wire delivers a thrilling reading experience with plenty of turbulence. Passengers should buckle in tightly and take note of the safety features…just in case.Buy Links

My name is Amy W., and I am a book addict. I will never forget the day I came home from junior high school to find my mom waiting for me with one of the Harlequin novels from my stash. As she was gearing up for the "you shouldn't be reading this" lecture, I told her the characters get married in the end. I'm just glad she didn't find the Bertrice Small book hidden in my closet. I have diverse reading tastes, evident by the wide array of genres on my Kindle. As I made the transition to an e-reader, I found myself worrying that something could happen to it. As a result, I am now the proud owner of four Kindles -- all different kinds, but plenty of back-ups! "Fifty Shades of Grey" gets high marks on my favorites list -- not for character development or dialogue (definitely not!), but because it blazed new ground for those of us who believe provocative fiction is more than just an explicit cover. Sylvia Day, Lexie Blake, and Kristin Hannah are some of my favorite authors. Speaking of diverse tastes, I also enjoy Dean Koontz, Iris Johansen, and J.A. Konrath. I’m always ready to discover new-to-me authors, especially when I toss in a palate cleanser that is much different than what I would normally read. Give me something with a well-defined storyline, add some suspense (or spice), and I am a happy reader. Give me a happily ever after, and I am downright giddy.
