The airline that was never found, MH370 is still one of the most mysterious phenomena that world has experienced. In Stolen- Malaysian Airlines Flight 370: the Perfect Crime, Colin Rousseaux has given the world another mystery, as he sets the tone of the book in similar vein. Against the backdrop of passengers’ history, as to the reason for taking this ill-fated flight, this whole episode is being documented for the first time from a human point of view rather than from the aviation perspective. A human face with very human unspoken stories is sighted finally. Passengers on board bound to China for mother’s funeral is only one such example. In the end. it all boils down to conjecture as to what might have happened before its disappearance, however Colin’s handing of the in-fight activities is dealt with absolutely prudence. The dialogue between the pilot and the ground crew is particularly very convincing as he puts a realistic spin to it. Each of the discrete information is itemized under various chapters which in the end becomes the plot of the book, It is quite an innovative and original effort.
Importantly, also is the writer’s description of how journalists display a very human emotion of a bittersweet desire for an imminent award for the most sought after scoop . Ultimately, the many speculations leave an inconclusive end result, however it is interesting to note as to how these speculations lead to mind boggling plausibility of a trade off of the most heinous kind subjecting the lives of the many passengers, the possibility of the parts of boing 777 being sold.
I take this opportunity to convey my sincerest respect to the missing passengers of MH370. Insofar as greed is concerned, any trade off is possible in human society.
