From the ashes of a catastrophic jet airliner crash, a single survivor's tender story of enduring love contrasts with another unfolding drama. Two investigators, thrown together at the crash site, find themselves on a personal collision course. Searching for answers in the wreckage, they slowly expose truths from their own lives, but only one of them reaches deeply to reveal everything. (c)


At a crash site somewhere in the Midwest, investigators Miranda and Erik stand amongst the wreckage. Middle-aged colleagues relatively new to each other, they tentatively begin a relationship. Although Miranda initially rebuffs Erik, it isn't long before the two have tumbled into bed together. The resulting vulnerability they both reveal and a subsequent encounter with a survivor of the crash shed light on the fragility of life and love. (c)

Keith Reddin, the best-known name among the scribes, contributed "Human Error," about two romantically involved NTSB investigators and the witness to the plane crash they're working on.

Human Error concerns the aftermath of a plane crash, where two investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board find themselves surprisingly involved in the life of a survivor. As they search for the cause of the disaster, they find themselves drawn together in a romantic entanglement which leaves them both changed and shaken (c)
