Summary

Accidental Heroes is a heart-stopping thriller about ordinary men and women who embark on a journey they will never forget.

On a beautiful May morning at JFK Airport, a routine plane departs for San Francisco. Security agent Bernice Adams finds a postcard of the Golden Gate Bridge bearing an ambiguous message. Who left the postcard behind, which flight is that person on, and what exactly does the message mean? Her supervisor dismisses her concerns, but she is compelled to contact Homeland Security.

Someone's planning something terrible, and these passengers' lives entwine as they come together to help to avert a tragedy at the eleventh hour. Accidental Heroes is a pulse-racing tale of extraordinary courage from the world's favourite storyteller, Danielle Steel.

Lovely story and different from the normal DS

A great story delving into so many characters who all join together. The ending is nicely done with a round up of the lives of all those affected.

Very mediocre.....

If you want to listen to a very compelling plane crash book, I suggest listening to "Before the Fall" by Noah Hawley.

Don't waste your credit on this one.

Accidental Heroes

Have not read Danielle Steel in more than 20 years so I thought I would give this a try........was good but drug out too much and as typical of Danielle always has to have a love 💘 story as a side story. Have not missed her writings at all.

Not Danielle Steel's best

Unlike other reviewers, I actually enjoyed the beginning of the novel with the lengthy character descriptions best. The action-packed climax was cliched and sort of boring. And the book dragged on for 2 additional hours after it should have ended.

Boring

There was absolutely no suspense here. Right from the beginning they tell you exactly what is going to happen. The most interesting part was in the middle, then you felt like an awkward house guest that’s overstayed your welcome in the last chapters. A lot of redundant and predictable storylines, too many characters, and a flat ending equals my recommendation to skip this one!

Super read!

Very realistic life stories- the young woman with the evil selfish boss who achieves great things in life, despite the bad boss; the war hero, the romance, all show great human spirit. I highly recommend.

True Danielle Steele

Enjoyed it in the car on long trips. I liked the positive development of relationships. I liked the plot. There was quite a bit of restating the facts and what was said earlier, drags it out unnecessarily . I have enjoyed her books for many many years and find reading them comforting and enjoyable and now listening to them on Audible
