Somewhere out in the wild seas of the southern Indian Ocean, in the underwater canyons of Broken Ridge near the alien sub-terrain known as the Seventh Arc lies the answer to the world's greatest aviation mystery.Why, on the night of 8 March 2014, did Malaysia Flight MH370 suddenly U-turn on the trip from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, zig-zag over Malaysia and up the Straits of Malacca, then disappear in the middle of nowhere without a word from anyone on board?Was it an elaborate murder-suicide by a rogue pilot? A terrible accident as a result of an on-board fire, rapid decompression or systems failure? A terrorist hijacking gone wrong? Was the flight captured by North Korean spies? Or even, as a few extremists believe, the victim of extra-terrestrial intervention?Journalist for The Australian Ean Higgins has led the world's coverage of the MH370 saga, one of the 21st century's most baffling, enduring and controversial mysteries.Ean's book draws on five years of interviews with aviation experts, victim families, air-crash investigators and air and ocean hunters, and takes us inside the saga like never before, written up close, on the inside, and from the major player's perspectives.This book will be released to coincide with the fifth anniversary of MH370's final flight.
