    Five years after the crashof TWA Flight 800, the government has declared it a result of mechanical failure. But John Corey, an ex-NYPD detective who is now a contract agent with the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force, is persuaded by Kate Mayfield, his wife and task force partner, that the case deserves a second look.

    Ms Discus says: "Addictive mix of fact & intriguing storyline"
    "Anyone else notice the really bad ending?"
    Overall

    I enjoyed Night Fall all the way up to the last chapter, and if it hadn't been for the ending I'd likely have given it 4 stars instead of 2.

    An hour or two before the end of the audio book I realized what likely going to happen, but I hoped it wouldn't (but it did).

    It seems to me that the author couldn't think of a way to end the story, so he instead chose to make everything that lead the characters up to the big climactic struggle completely moot by removing the climax altogether, killing off many of the supporting characters and destroying all the evidence that had been collected to solve the crime. What a waste. Had this been a physical book rather than an audio book, I'd have flung it across the room in disgust.

    I think DeMille felt hamstrung by writing about non-fictional events in that he didn't want to develop a satisfying ending that would have violated current known history. I'd have been perfectly happy with a fictional ending to a non-fictional event. As it is, I feel very, very cheated.
