Synopsis

'The affair was weird when seen from afar, but seen close-up, it was Kafkaesque: it was not possible in 2014 for a Boeing 777 to have simply disappeared...'











A remarkable piece of investigative journalism into one of the most pervasive and troubling mysteries of recent memory.









01:20am, 8 March 2014.









Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, carrying 239 passengers, disappeared into the night, never to be seen or heard from again.







The incident was inexplicable. In a world defined by advanced technology and interconnectedness, how could an entire aircraft become untraceable? Had the flight been subject to a perfect hijack? Perhaps the pilots lost control? And if the plane did crash, where was the wreckage?





Writing for Le Monde in the days and months after the plane's disappearance, journalist Florence de Changy closely documented the chaotic international investigation that followed, uncovering more questions than answers. Riddled with inconsistencies, contradictions and a lack of basic communication between authorities, the mystery surrounding flight MH370 only deepened.





Now, de Changy offers her own explanation. Drawing together countless eyewitness testimonies, press releases, independent investigative reports and expert opinion, The Disappearing Act offers an eloquent and deeply unnerving narrative of what happened to the missing aircraft.





An incredible feat of investigative journalism and a testament to de Changy's tenacity and resolve, this book is an exhaustive, gripping account into one of the most profound mysteries of the 21st century.
