4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 13 Jun 2005
Format:Paperback
With Night Fall we see again Nelson Demille moving into the realms of conspiracy theory that we have seen touched on in both The Charm School and The Talbot Odyssey. However don't let this put you off as again, Demille handles his subject matter with tact, using a writers artistic license just enough to create an enjoyable novel, without moving the reader to disbelief.
The story again centres on John Corey, a street smart New York cop, with not a small amount of contempt for his federal counterparts. Luckily it isn't as cliché as this could suggest and Corey does have a 3D element to him, helped in no small part by the casting of FBI agent Kate Mayfield as his love interest.
The story progresses through Corey opening up (unofficially) the tragic case of flight TWA 800 which plunged into the Atlantic killing all on board. Conspiracy theories were all discredited but thanks to a possible new piece of evidence, were they disregarded correctly...
Its an excellent book with many twists and turns and definitely up there with Demille's best. A strong recommendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars De Mille is one of the gener's best! 6 Jan 2005
Format:Paperback
Nelson Demille's latest book is not my favorite, but it is still entertaining because of detective John Corey. I've read nearly every book the author has written and I find I enjoy most his work (I did not care much for Cathedral). I especially loved the novels featuring John Corey, The Lion's Game and Plum Island.
The books plot revolves around a couple video taping themselfs having a tryist on the beach, both married but not to each other. There video inadvertantly preserves for prosterity the last moments of TWA 800 as it explodes 1996. This is the one problem I have with the book, is its using a real event and fictionalizing it. You are not sure what is real and what is made up, and in this case a lot of people lost their lives. I am sure it is not a book you would read if you had a family member on flight 800. Once I got past this issue though I truely enjoyed getting back into Detective Carey's head. In spite of the subject matter there is humor in the book, has to be with Carey's wisecracks.
Of course this video indicates that the plan crash might not have been from mechanicle faliure, and of coures Carey is on the investigation. The story moves along at a good pace as a police procedural with Corey digger deeper into the case. We also get to see the detective's softer side - so in love is he with Kate Mayfield. I think DeMille got their feelings and musing just right for two professionals who are trying to keep their eye on the ball and each other at the same time.
I would agree with some of the other reviewers that the ending was not as strong as I would like. I can't say more as it would spoil the story. Overall though I thought this was better than most the junk I read. If you liked Plum Island and Lions Game you should enjoy this book. Also check out "A Tourist in the Yucatan" My favorite thriller read of 2004!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read 21 Jan 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Once again, John corey is back and he is very welcome after a long absence. I only hope he will return to follow up the investigation in the very near future.
The plot in Night Fall is tightly woven and De Mille has managed to weave fact and fiction together to provide a very plausible scenario.
The essecence of the book is Corey himself and his wisecracks are as good as ever, even if this time around, it takes a little bit more time before he really becomes himself. I don't think there is another author who can imitate DeMilles snappy, cynical dialogue quite like him.
If you liked the others, then you will like this story, although it is the weaker of the three.
The return of a certain character from the other novels is also a highlight to this story!
Keep it up Nelson and please don't make us wait too long for the next one?

5.0 out of 5 stars A page turning thriller 3 Aug 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I read this book while unwell and it cheered me up. It is a page turning classic for the lovers of Dan Brown books. I would strongly urge anyone to get their hands on a copy for themselves.

4.0 out of 5 stars Night Fall - An Absolutely Riveting Read! 11 Feb 2005
Format:Paperback
On July 17, 1996, Trans World Airlines Flight 800 departed New York City's John F. Kennedy international Airport en route to Paris, France, carrying 212 passengers and 18 crew members. It departed JFK at about 8:16 p.m. eastern time and was climbing through 13,760 feet when, 14 minutes into the flight it exploded and fell into the Atlantic Ocean approximately 9 miles off Long Island. All 230 people onboard were killed. This is fact.
Nelson DeMille's novel "Night Fall" is based on factual evidence. The author explores the controversy surrounding the cause of the disaster which the US government still officially attributes to a spark in Flight 800's center fuel tank. The FBI interviewed 154 "credible" witnesses - including scientists, schoolteachers, Army personnel and business executives - who described seeing a missile heading through the sky just before TWA 800 exploded. They reported a "streak of light" hitting the plane just before it blew up." Their testimony was disregarded. Today, more than eight years after the event, questions are still being raised about the accuracy of the findings - about a possible cover-up. DeMille's research is impressive. He stresses that the novel draws on published accounts, plus interviews with investigators and eyewitnesses to the crash. He says he has "tried to represent all sides of this controversy," but adds that he has taken "dramatic liberties and literary licence when there is conflicting evidence." This is, after all, a work of fiction. It is up to the reader to determine the level of believability.
Bud Mitchell and Jill Winslow, an affluent couple in their thirties, are in the middle of an illicit love affair. They're set for a romantic evening at the beach.

This book is easy to read. However, the plot is relatively similar to the other John Corey's stories. It is a great book to read on vacation.
