A huge sum-but not when you consider that it's for the return of a hijacked 747 and 360 passengers. The gigantic plane has disappeared from the face of the earth, and even the FBI is stumped. But not an impoverished young lawyer named Bill Verecker; he needs the reward money, and with the dubious help of Annie, his ex-wife (who is also his secretary), and some wild theories, he's not on the trail of the kidnappers-the most unlikely groups of criminals imaginable.
