This is a good novelette (novella) that could be considered spec fic or military realism, although the actual genre is thriller > military and thriller > crime. It's a what-if scenario for the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, presenting a believable, realistic case that it could have been hijacked and flown to North Korea, and showing how that could have been accomplished. Hey, that makes more sense than a number of the "possibilities" put forward by CNN.

This is close to a five-star read, but some editing and proofreading errors did make me pause a few times while reading. On pure imagination and believability, it would be five stars. As it stands, we'll call it 4.5. ( )
