Format: Paperback
Although I can not agree that this book is better that the already legendary "Eye of the needle", I must admit that in his second book Ken Follett managed to do as well as in his first. This story takes place in Egypt during WWII and has for hero Alex Wolff, a German spy infiltrated in Cairo in 1942 by a daring raid through Sahara (this is partly inspired by real events - there was such an operation). Fluent in Arabic as well as in English, helped by local Arab sympatizers, Wolff proves to be a particularly dangerous man - information he transmits to Rommel headquarters helps Germans winning a couple of desert battles. Finally, British counter intelligence realises that there must be an undetected spy network somewhere in Cairo or Alexandria and the laborious investigation begins... This book is quite realistic and keeps good suspense until very end. I enjoyed reading it and recommend it warmly. Oh, and in fact, referring to the previous review, it already WAS adapted to cinema, in 1985, with David Soul playing Alex Wolff.

I picked this book up not really knowing what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised and was gripped from the very beginning - I must say the very first line of the story is probably among the most intriguing ever:

"The last camel collapsed at noon."

Great alternate spy/spycatcher chapter format to keep the chase alive and the pages turning, though I'm subtracting a point for some clumsy eroticism. I suppose that the spy thriller genre demands it, but I just cringe and feel like I'm reading Mills & Boone or something.

Otherwise pick up this book and enjoy.

Follet does a marvellous job of developing multiple characters and multiple plots, then weaving them together into a well paced thriller. Some clever twists in the plot to keep you guessing, and an great setting to bring everything together in - one of the last flights of the great passenger flying boats. The historical detail is also fascinating!

"Night over water"'s unique characters, easy language, interesting plot and setting makes it very enjoyable to read. If you want something "light" to read, this should be your choice.

I read this book about 10 years ago, in hardback format, and found it incredibly terrific, couldn't put it down. It was the first Ken Follett that I had read, and since then have had the pleasure to read a great many more of his novels.
He is a wonderful author, and all of his books, keep me intrigued.
As has been mentioned in other reviews the Boeing 314, run by Pan Am, must have been a truly great aircraft in its day, as were the crews.
To all of those browsing, and considering getting the KIndle edition of this novel, I would recommend it, you will enjoy, I promise you.
This truly is a great story,

I absolutely loved reading this book. I couldn't put it down...I know that's an over used phrase but true. Ken Follett is a brilliant author and I would recommend this book for a super holiday read.
Oh yeah, if you're like me and didn't know anything about Pan Am Clippers have a look on Google to see this beautiful looking aircraft.

I love all Ken Follett books they have a real story and keep you wanting to reach the end to find out what happens next. The key to rebecca is another brilliantly told story, I would recommend this as a very good read.
