Summary

Summary

A #1 New York Times bestseller

Based on true events, but unlike anything you've ever read before, #1 New York Times bestselling author Nelson DeMille has created what may be his finest work to date.

It is dusk on July l7, 1996. A man and a woman who are married—but not to each other—make love on a Long Island beach as a video camera records their pleasure … and something more. Out over the ocean, TWA Flight 800 suddenly explodes with 230 victims on board, the terrible blast illuminating the sky. The government's verdict is mechanical failure, but the videotape may tell another story—if it can be found.

Now, on the fifth anniversary of the crash, two members of the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force set out to reopen the case: John Corey, a former NYPD detective, and his wife, Kate Mayfield, a career FBI agent. Together, they hunt for the crucial video—and race toward an elusive truth even more horrifying than the crash itself.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“With inspired writing and the tension-inducing talents of a true master, Nelson DeMille delves into one of the most mysterious tragedies in recent history—TWA Flight 800…his most entertaining and skillful novel to date.” Dan Brown, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“What ratchets up the tension in this capably written thriller is what the reader knows but Corey doesn’t as he heads for a showdown…You don’t have to believe in conspiracies or government cover-ups to find his latest engrossing, entertaining, and enlightening.” Amazon.com
“The pages will turn in a blur as a feeling of dread grows, until the end comes and one’s worst fears are confirmed. Readers will think about this one for a long time.” Publishers Weekly
“As usual, DeMille spins a well-crafted, timely, and exciting tale. Corey is a cynical and sarcastic ex-cop who’s been around the block at least once too often, while Mayfield is a straight-arrow FBI lawyer who wants desperately to do right for the dead of Flight 800. To do so, they must deal with sinister forces within their own government as they unknowingly count down to 9/11. Strongly recommended for most popular-fiction collections.” Library Journal
“This real-life tragedy hands DeMille perhaps his finest plot ever, one that involves real feeling and will have you squirming and calling out at various dangers.” Kirkus Reviews
“Scott Brick has a clear take on Nelson DeMille’s tension-rich style. Building the suspense and puzzling through layers of questions, Brick leads listeners with a comfortable style. Using enough character voices to keep the portraits clear, he colors Corey with a vocal depiction that lets the wise-guy sarcasm bloom while the ‘won’t-take-no’ instincts run deep alongside. Nicely nuanced and involving.” AudioFile
