Listen to an excerpt from Drowning, the new edge-of-your-seat thriller by bestselling author TJ Newman!

Flight attendant turned New York Times bestselling author Newman – whose first book Falling was an instant international bestseller and the biggest thriller debut of 2021 – returns for her second book!

In Drowning, a commercial jetliner that crashes into the ocean, and sinks to the bottom with passengers trapped inside, and the extraordinary rescue operation to save them.

‘Flames. Chunks of metal ripping off, flying by. Will leaned over Shannon for a better view. The engine was on fire.’

About the book

Six minutes after takeoff, Flight 1421 crashes into the Pacific Ocean.

During the evacuation, an engine explodes and the plane is flooded. Those still alive are forced to close the doors – but it’s too late. The plane sinks to the bottom with twelve passengers trapped inside.

More than two hundred feet below the surface, engineer Will Kent and his 11-year-old daughter Shannon are waist-deep in water and fighting for their lives. Their only chance at survival is an elite rescue team on the surface led by professional diver Chris Kent – Shannon’s mother and Will’s soon-to-be ex-wife – who must work together with Will to find a way to save their daughter and rescue the passengers from the sealed airplane, which is now teetering on the edge of an undersea cliff.

There’s not much time. There’s even less air.

With devastating emotional power and heart-stopping suspense, Drowning is an unforgettable thriller about a family’s desperate fight to save themselves and the people trapped with them – against impossible odds.
