– Reviews in for BREAKING POINT the sequel to CRASHERS:

“For those who read Haynes’ first book, Crashers, this new adventure will not disappoint at all. Breaking Point is a wonderful second work for Haynes. The reader will be left wanting a third.”

Hub Pages, http://wordsntone.hubpages.com

“Haynes has succeeded in crafting a worthy follow-up to his debut novel: a fast-paced and nerve-wracking continuation of the crashers he introduced that makes you want another book as soon as possible.”

Jim Tremlett, Schuler Books

“… a book for adrenaline junkies; it grabs you by the frontal lobes right at the outset, and doesn’t let go… . Breaking Point is a compelling page-turner, with ‘cinema adaptation’ written all over it.”

Bruce Tierney, Bookpage.com

“Haynes’s second well-written thriller describes in meticulous detail the way the NTSB investigates airplane crashes. The protagonists are fully fleshed-out human beings — flawed and interesting.                                                                  The Library Journal

“Haynes follows up his well-received, similarly themed debut, Crashers (2010), with a measured thriller involving controversial, internationally banned weapons technology that mercenaries will stop at nothing to acquire.” – Kirkus Reviews, October 2011

 

Reviews for CRASHERS:

“Strong characters, gruesome crash details, and the ticking countdown to another crash makes this novel an explosive mix of “24” and “CSI.” — USA Today

“You absolutely must read Crashers.  I literally couldn’t put this book down. Dana Haynes is a gifted writer who grabs you on page one and doesn’t let you go until the final page. This is going to be one of the best and most breathless reads of the summer.”— Nelson DeMille, author of The Lion

“Outstanding! Crashers combines the ferocious action you usually see on a movie screen with a fascinating look at the way a major airline crash is investigated. Crashers is guaranteed to be one of the year’s best thrillers.”  — Phillip Margolin, author of Supreme Justice

“CRASHERS is an awesome read. In this pulse-pounding thriller taking you inside the fascinating world of plane crash investigators, Dana Haynes stands on the gas and never lets up. If you want a gripping, well-researched page-turner, look no further.” — Boyd Morrison, author of The Ark

“Recently finished Crashers. Enjoyed the hell out of it. Well done. Well done indeed.” — Mark Terry, author of “The Fallen”

“Verdict: The plane crash scenes are extremely graphic but absolutely essential to the reader’s understanding of the aftermath of a plane downed by a terrorist strike. Although the ending is just a little over the top, this thriller debut is filled with exitement and knowledge of NTSB procedures and problems. Highly recommended – just don’t eat during the crash-scene investigation.” — Library Journal

“Imagine an entire season of “24” crammed into a single book. That’s what you get with Crashers, a fast-paced, twisty thriller that just begging to be made into a movie.” — April Henry, co-author of Face of Betrayal and Hand of Fate

Crashers is a supersonic jet of a thriller, loaded with compelling detail and page-turning suspense and action.”— Jeff Abbott, author of Panic and Trust Me

“Dana Haynes delivers big-time with Crashers, a spectacular, timely, un-put-downable, near-perfect thriller whose every page sizzles with action, intrigue, information and intelligence.  If you’re a thriller fan, or even just a lover of fine writing and terrific story-telling, do yourself a favor and buy this book.” — John Lescroart, author of Betrayal

“This thriller debut is filled with excitement and knowledge of NTSB procedures and problems. Highly recommended – just don’t eat during the crash-scene investigation.” 
– Library Journal (starred review)

“Compelling…The forensic details fascinate but aren’t for the weak of stomach…The slam-bang crash landing of a conclusion will leave readers anxiously awaiting the promised sequel.” – Publishers Weekly

“Action-oriented readers will embrace this new thriller… well paced… plenty of tension.” – Booklist

This is the story of the Crashers who are a special team of NTSB agents that respond to downed planes and try to figure out the cause of the crash.  They are called together when a Vermeer Jetliner goes down over Oregon to try to find out why it crashed.  This book is a fanastic page turner and is loaded with intrigue.  The crash could easily happen in real life which made it feel even more realistic.   The book isn’t so full of technical information that it’s hard to follow but has enough information so that a fan of a CSI or House type program will really enjoy reading this book and trying to solve the cause of the crash along with the Crashers.

The adjectives that typically come to mind with regard to thrillers (gripping, tense, fast-paced) all fall somewhat short of the mark in the case of Crashers; something with a higher degree of ferocity is required (pit-bullish, stroke-inducing, warp-speed-paced…?). Seriously, though, this is a book for adrenaline junkies; it grabs you by the frontal lobes right at the outset and doesn’t let go until the last page. — Bruce Tierney, Mysterious Orientations

A good thriller is one that keeps you anticipating the outcome up until the very last page; it’s one where you don’t know who will live or die, and who the bad guy is until the author tells you. Dana Haynes’ first thriller is one of the good ones…. A great page-turner, an intense edge-of-your-seat thriller, that is Crashers. Haynes’ writing is so visual I could see everything in my mind. The best part is that I just read he’s working on a sequel! 5 Stars. — thecrowdedleaf.com

“CRASHERS is a supersonic jet of a thriller, loaded with compelling detail and page-turning suspense and action.” — Jeff Abbott, author of Fear, Panic, Collision
