Publisher's Summary

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

At dusk on July 17, 1996, on a deserted Long Island beach, a man and a woman engage in adulterous sex in front of a video camera. Suddenly a terrible blast lights up the dark summer sky. TWA Flight 800 has just exploded in midair with 230 souls on board, and the video camera has recorded the last moments of the doomed airliner.

Five years later, the government has declared the crash 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.

Kate, a career FBI agent, plays by the rules. Corey plays by no rules but his own. Against long odds and warnings from their superiors, they set out to reopen the case and discover its most crucial piece of evidence. The hunt will lead to a conspiracy at the highest levels and a race toward an elusive and lethal truth that could be even more horrifying than the crash of Flight 800, one with unimaginable consequences for America...and the world.

    "I had to review this book!"

    This book has everything. The plot is unusual, the writing both humorous and well done. The plot has many surprises and is full of action.
    While I have never written a review before, I felt that this book was so good that I had to pass my "must read" on. It was one of those you hope never ends.
    While I am not versed in evaluating its literary style and merits all I know is that it is one of the most compelling books I have read in a long time. And as a dedicated Audible User, that's alot of books!!

    "Loved it!"

    This is a good book. I started with the Lion's Game, which I also loved, and am now looking for my next Demille book.

    I can't believe the last reviewer found it necessary to recount the entire book. This is supposed to be your opinion of the book, not cliff notes for the book. Nice of her to give away the ending too.

    "i gave it a four for one reason only"

    i wanted more more more......i could not stop listening to it but the ending let me down but it made total sense, because it is a continuing story. The facts mixed with the fiction are hard to tell apart. This Long Island boy is a winner.

    "OK, but not de Mille at his best"

    Well, it's actually a pretty good reworking of a conspiracy theory (and I do not like conspiracy theories). Slightly better than average mystery. Not a great suspense novel or thriller, but good and quite listenable. I give it a B-

    "good fictional story cloaked in real event"

    DeMille has taken the flight of TWA 800 and said "what if..." A plausible scenario that keeps you hooked. Not as much action as some of his other novels but keeps you interested and leaves you wanting more.

    "A Must Read"

    The first half was a little slow, but was more than made up for in the second half.Was looking for traffic jams so I could hear more. A great story line with a great ending.

    "Couldn't stop listening"

    After a somewhat slow start this book really picks up the pace quickly. Though the ending was somewhat predicable, it is a "great listen".

    "A Good Listen"

    Kept my interest throughout. The narrator did an excellent job of bringing the characters to life. I came to enjoy the main character's sense of humor.
