A high-octane conspiracy thriller about the shock disappearance of Flight 716

On a routine crossing from JFK to Heathrow, passenger Flight 716 does the unthinkable; it vanishes, taking with it the 256 passengers on board.

It’s a mystery that brilliant aviation investigator Kendra Malley and her team must solve, and fast.

But in her search for answers, Kendra only uncovers more questions; like who turned off the airplane’s radio transmitter? Was it pilot error, or an act of suicide? Could a bomb have caused the crash? And if so, what was the target: the plane, or someone on board?

Soon, the only thing she does know is that there are powerful people out there who want her investigation to fail, and are determined to bury the truth, at any cost.

Departure features an all-star cast, including Emmy® Award winner Archie Panjabi (The Good Wife), Academy Award® winner Christopher Plummer (All The Money In The World), Kris Holden-Ried (Vikings), and Claire Forlani (Hawaii Five-O).
