Stars John Corey of Plum Island and Lion’s Game, one of Mr DeMille’s best creations. It’s based on a real event, the TWA crash over Long Island that killed 230 people and culminates with 9/11 and it’s good. Mr Demille is a major American thriller writer who hasn’t quite made the same mark over here but he is well worth a read.
Five years after the horrific crash of TWA Flight 800 over Long Island which killed 230 people, John Corey is inadvertently caught up in the now-closed case by his FBI lawyer wife, Kate, who believes the government's findings of mechanical failure is wrong.
The FBI don't take kindly to the case being looked into again and, as John Corey's instincts and investigations clearly show anomalies, he and Kate are sent off to the Yemen and Tanzania for a month or so each as punishment.
On his return, John is not put off - he has ten days' leave. Ten days in which to avoid the FBI and to find that elusive video tape taken by two adulterous lovers on the beach which may - or may not - show a sea-to-air missile racing up to hit the TWA Flight 800…
'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. In a career marked by great books, DeMille has written his most entertaining and skilful novel to date' DAN BROWN
'Conspiracy theorists will love DeMille's story... the final few chapters are real buttock clenchers' MIRROR (4 STAR REVIEW)
'This real-life tragedy hands DeMille perhaps his finest lot ever' KIRKUS REVIEWS
