Andrew J. Field

(Johnson Books, Boulder, 2005)            




The riveting true story of the FBI's investigation into the first act of sabotage against a U.S. commercial aircraft, the unprecedented televised trial that exposed the murderer's dark motives, and the shock waves that are still reverberating in America's skies and courtrooms more than sixty years after the bombing of the United Air Lines plane named the "Mainliner Denver."

Mainliner Denver was a #1 bestseller on Amazon in Air & Space Law, and a nonfiction bestseller in Denver.

"Field uses his legal background to deftly wend his way through the trail of evidence." - Denver Post

"Andrew J. Field has written a compelling account of the worst case of mass murder committed by one person in Colorado history.  Field knows how to tell a story.  He has a good eye for the telling and ironic detail."  - Rocky Mountain News
