1983. Post-colonial Africa is a place that attracts men with an eye for the main chance.
A cargo jet secretly departs a bush airstrip carrying the bullion reserves of an African Republic; the company’s chairman promises the crew a generous gratuity, and a crewmember’s family held hostage by corrupt army officers has been released. What can possibly go wrong … except a massacre?
Four men with disparate motives attempt to save a struggling airfreight company from collapse. Against a backdrop of turbulent politics, sanction busting and armed rebellion, action speeds between Africa, Europe and the Middle East as driven men pursue their goals – and pay the price.
Fasten your seatbelt; Critical Point takes you into the cockpits of those anonymous jet freighters airline passengers seldom notice at airports – and into the hidden lives of the men who fly them.
