Medusa's Child by John J. Nance (1998, Pan Books; 576 pages)
Imagine being the captain of a Boeing 727 cruising at 10,000 feet and being told that your plane is carrying a thermonuclear monster that could devastate a vast area of the United State AND wipe out every computer chip on the continent, thus eliminating any and all traces of modern technology! Add to this, a group of rogue military officers who conspire to circumvent the President’s orders and seek to land the plane and secure the technology at any cost. Will the captain and his crew trust themselves, defy the specious presidential orders, fly directly into the path of a hurricane with only the narrowest margin of extra fuel, and dispose of the bomb themselves? Or, will they blindly follow the orders from a misguided sector of the government and plunge the civilization of the entire continent to back to a time prior to modern technology?
