A planetary thriller
On 8 March 2014, heaven and earth lost all contact with Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 on its way from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people aboard. For nearly two years now, the whole world has been searching for this aeroplane: satellites, official rescue crews, the secret services, astrophysicists and top IT experts, private investigators financed by crowdfunding, major science laboratories, internet users and complete unknowns who have become self-appointed experts on the subject. Across Asia, Australia, Europe, the United States and Africa, there has been no let-up in the search.
A global approach to the mystery, with all its human, geostrategic and scientific ingredients
The author discards the false rumours and the most implausible scenarios one by one and explores every lead, from Kuala Lumpur to the Maldives. In the course of these fascinating investigations, she gains access to confidential documents and meets key witnesses,
bringing to light a vast campaign of disinformation. Clearly, the truth is uncomfortable.
« There is only one certainty: contact was knowingly broken off from inside the plane, which carried on flying for eight hours until its fuel ran out. Since then, there’s been nothing. »
