OUT NOW! The Mystery of Flight 1099 by Tom Munroe

On a sunny morning in March, Flight 1099 from Abu Dhabi, bound for New York, disappears over the Persian Gulf. Among the 156 passengers is famous author Stuart Symington, returning to the US after visiting young Jordanian Amal Ahmed, with whom he has developed a close relationship.

A devout Muslim, Amal refuses to accept the obvious, reaching down deep into his faith to find out what happened to Stuart, firmly believing he’s still alive. The shy young man must summon his courage as he searches for answers, situations he could never have imagined himself involved in as he becomes quickly swept up in world events.

Will Amal, and the world, learn what happened to Flight 1099? Could anyone have survived the catastrophe? Could there be hope, as Amal insists, that a few lucky passengers might have survived, Stuart among them?

Ripped from today’s headlines, Amal’s story sets in motion a series of events that puts the entire world on edge as he embarks on an adventure of a lifetime.

Where do you get the ideas for your stories?

They come from a variety of sources. My first book, Not On My Bucket List, was based on an online conversation with someone in another country that got me thinking, “What if?” My third book, I Love You Ten Million Times Over, actually came to me in a dream.

And the exotic locations for your stories? Have you visited them?

Yes. I want my readers to be taken on a certain amount of fantasy, setting my books in locales, sometimes exotic, that they may not have visited. I also hope that in this way they will learn about people in other countries, how they live, how they think.

And you also seem to set your books against current events.

Definitely. They may be fiction, but I want them to have a relevance to today, to events we may still be dealing with.

Immigrants and immigrant’s rights seems to be a recurring theme with you.

Absolutely. I am never shy about reminding people that we are a nation of immigrants.

What do you want readers to take away from your books, remember about them?

That love can be found anywhere. It crosses international borders, different cultures. And that there is an absolute worth to every individual.

Here is an excerpt from the book I am currently working on, High Water Mark, set amid the historic floods in Venice in 2019.
