With his older brother Scott at the controls, Brandon is "deadheading" a free flight with a hangover that won't quit. Without warning, Scott deliberately crashes the plane into a downtown London skyscraper. Brandon is killed in a horrifying wreck, along with everyone on board.And his day only gets worse from there.To survive his own demise, Brandon must confront these riddles head-on, until he realizes that the person with the answers may be his late brother's own wife — a woman he once loved himself. And when he encounters her again, he finds that his love for her is one part of himself that will never die.
