Airframe, by Michael Crichton
It's been a really long time since I've read this. But, since we're working on text sets I thought it would be a good idea to add this to my blog. The story deconstructs an "event" in an airplane. The insurance auditor and air safety people try to track down just what happened. Overall I think it's useful to describe how math and science are really a part of real life work. As always, Crichton's plots and characterization carry the reader through some fairly technical details.
