Comments Night Fall

  • Carol.

    Generally, I’m not a fan of political thrillers. You say to me, “Carol, here’s a political thriller I just know you will love…” and I will not be rushing to the library or my favorite dealer to get a copy. Frankly, I find most of them silly and poorly written. Government conspiracies? Puh-leaze.Not so believable.At any rate, this one popped up in discussion and due to enthusiasm from Sharon and recommendations from Alfred (and others, I think–I lost the thread), Sharon and I decided [...]


  • Tim Williams

    This book was 692 pages. For 690 pages it was one of the best books I've ever read and then DeMille completely ruined it with one of the most piece-of-crap, cop-out endings I've ever seen coming a mile away. He even admits that he had no idea how to finish this book and his son came up with the idea for the ending. I guess that's the problem with writing a story based on a real-life event. You can't really change history or present "facts" that didn't actually happen, so he completely wrote hims [...]


  • Sharon

    This book and I may have gotten off on the wrong foot. I wanted to revisit Nelson DeMille--I read Plum Island years ago and remembered really enjoying it, especially protagonist John Corey's smartass sense of humor. I recall very little about the book, other than a row between Corey and a villain which ends up with Corey disemboweling him, and proceeding to lay the contents on his open stomach with a flourish ("'Your guts,' I declared."). That's a line that stays with you when you're young.Upon [...]

    Oh my god. No amount of planning could prepare me to pen a deserving review for Night Fall. I will never ever read such a large book in so short a time. It was unbelievable. This is why I read books. After this, if I have to ditch 10 books in a row, it will be worth it. When I was reading Night Fall, I thought no way does this book get 4/5 stars. But it occurred that all events converged on the remaining chapters. That is the only way an okay setup book jumps from okay to amazing. The most recen [...]


  • Freda Malone

    Wow. I'm shattered, shocked and awed by this novel. Pay special close attention to the time frame in the book. TWA Flight 800 tragedy 1996, the 5 year anniversary 2001. I was so engrossed in this fast paced, action packed, novel that I absolutely did not see the end coming. “Holy Shit” I said to myself and “No Way”. I had to go back and look. When you read this you'll be in for the ride of your life and the tension will grow and grow, and you will become shattered at the end. I hate clif [...]


  • Mike (the Paladin)

    Demille's books seem to be reliably good (at least this series has been so far). I'm getting these from the public library (hey, I'm already looking at having to reduce the size of my own librarya lot. i can't buy every book I read). That means i usually have to put these on hold and wait to get them.As I did this one.This volume of the lives of our heros begins a little more slowly or maybe I should use the word "obliquely" than the first two. Hang in there it will grab you.Kate (Mayfield) has [...]


  • Nicole

    ****Spoiler****I love Nelson Demille books. I love conspiracy theories. I absolutely can not stand it when there isn't an ending and nothing gets solved.I rated this a 3 because it was highly entertaining. But as I was nearing the end I thought that there was a good chance we wouldn't get any answersd we didn't. Though it isn't like this book is a history book that has all the details. I know it's a piece of fiction but, come on, finish the da*n story. I"m frustrated, but I literally just finish [...]


  • Mikey B.

    Once again Mark Twain’s formula for an American crime writer of killing everybody off at the end is followed. This time September 11th does it, wiping out witnesses and conspirators alike. Too bad!! For almost 500 pages we surely want to know who targeted this flight and why was there a cover-up? There is much humour and suspense through-out but the essentials are unanswered.


  • Chipper

    DeMille's wit is in full effect in the suspenseful thriller! Made me laugh over and over and over again. The characters are likeable and believable, the story has the right level of sophistication and many of the theories in the book are based on verifiable facts and eyewitness statements regarding TWA Flight 800. Some readers have been and will continue to be displeased by the last couple pages. I, on the other hand, felt it was a perfect conclusion to a fastastic and wildly entertaining story. [...]


  • Jerry B

    Suspenseful tale built on TWA-800 crash - but sloppy ending!We are loyal followers of DeMille's entire bibliography, so looked forward to "Night Fall", especially once we got the drift it was based on fact and embellished with fiction (ala the Da Vinci Code). The author concocts two eyewitnesses to the crash of TWA flight 800 in 1996, who not only claimed to have seen a "missile" streak skyward toward the plane, but may have videotaped it as well, as part of a secret, sex-filled beachside rendez [...]


  • Erik

    This was one of those novels that the pre-release hype was so great that as a reader, I was not sure what to expect but Night Fall with a few small exceptions lived up to the media hubbub. The novel starts with a flashback scene that takes us to the Atlantic coast on the fateful night of the TWA flight 800 crash. On the beach, two "consenting adults" are enjoying their night out and for posterity sake filmed the evening. On this tape, the "accident" and a strange shooting light is trapped on cel [...]


  • Marilyn

    Provocative, frightening, and based on True Events. It is dusk on July 17, 1996. A man and a woman who are married - but not to each other - make love on a Long Island beach as a video camera records their pleasuresd something more. Out over the ocean, TWA flight 800 suddenly explodes with 230 victims on board, the terrible blast illuminating the sky. The government's verdict is mechanical failure. But the videotape may tell another story - if it can be found. Now, on the 5th anniversary of the [...]


  • Kimber

    I absolutely loved this book. After a co-worker had been talking about it for weeks she finally brought it to me. As soon as I opened it I was hooked. It took me a Sunday to finish it and I fell in love with John Corey the detective in the book. If you are into a suspense novel then this is for you!

    Už dávno som nečítala niečo tak plytké a bezduché a to hovorím ako človek, čo na wécku so záujmom študuje etikety čistiacich prostriedkov


  • Bruno

    Este livro foi inspirado através dos factos verídicos sobre o avião TWA 800 que se partiu ao meio e caiu perto da ilha Long Island, no dia 17 de julho de 1996, provocando a morte de 230 passageiros. O que causou aquilo? Link: ptpedia/wiki/Voo_TWA_800As testemunhas viram o que parecia ser um míssel a ser disparado e atingido o avião provocando a sua queda.Apanharam as peças do avião e reconstruíram este avião a fim de detectar falhas/ causas do “acidente”, mas não encontraram nada q [...]


  • Barbara

    I had not read a DeMille book in a long time and while I liked this one (part of the John Corey series) I don't think it was as good as his earlier efforts, such as The General's Daughter and The Charm School (my personal favorites). The book had an e-x-t-r-e-m-e-l-y slow start and there were a few times when I thought I would just throw it aside and not finish. The clues to the mystery were too slow in coming and the author seemed to prefer to continually go over and over the aspects of the cra [...]


  • Corey

    I don't know what to say about Night Fall, the premise is very different than the first two books in the series. It's about the attack on Flight 800, which I didn't know much about until reading this book, a few nights ago I did some research on the real thing, and I learned more about it. This book also seemed to have a more serious tone to it than the first two.The ending really shocked me, I never saw it coming. I don't want to spoil it for anyone so I won't give anything away. However it was [...]


  • Margarida

    3,5*


  • Shaun

    Great until page 325 when the CIA "villain" came back to life and spoiled the show. The arc of the climax is similar to the ill-fated and sad flight of TWA Flight 800; a slow climb off the tarmac, not unlike a 747 lumbering down the runway. But when it gets to cruising speed shot down as it gained altitude. The controversial CIA animation of "what really and truly happened" to TWA Flight 800 discounts entirely the actual eyewitness testimony of 250 people; all of whom can't be wrong here. I am [...]


  • Julie

    I just finished this book and before writing my thoughts on this book I read the preview here. So, where did Bob Mitchell and Janet Whitney come from????? It is BUD Mitchell and JILL WINSLOW for cripes sake! I liked the book and wanted to read faster when it got down to crunch time. The ending was totally unexpected and not sure if I like it yet but it was appropriate.


  • Trix

    I liked this book much more than The Lion's Game. I suspect it has a lot to do with the fact that this story had more of the hands-on approach than the rest. Whereas the 'mystery' in the previous Corey book was solved in the last pages of the book, "Night Fall" was shrouded in mystery to the end and only slowly revealed its secrets.John Corey seemed to be more in his element in this book. Or perhaps, all that chasing around masked some of the cynicism and bravado. Don't get me wrong, I like his [...]


  • Eva

    It's very uncommon for me to be reading thrillers. I like the genre, but there are other genres that are getting my attention a lot more. This book made me realise that I really should spend more time reading thriller/detectives.What intrigued me the most about this book is the fact that it is a true story. In 1996 there was an airplane "shot down" after departing from NY and it did crash into the sea. To this day there is still a lot of questionmarks to what happened with this plane. From the b [...]


  • Johnny Williams

    Yes--- I really enjoyed this book a lot. We get to know John Corey a lot better. His humor was still intact giving us an instant belly laugh when it hits you. This may not be the best Nelson has done but its still a good read. He can build a character with the best and draw you into a story reminding you of him being a master in his craft. You will find yourself inside both John's head and the witnesses he pursues-- If you are going to be a fan and going to continue the series-- you "have" to re [...]


  • Tim

    This novel is not as good as others he's written. There is some good writing, some repetition and I wasn't exactly thrilled with the ending. 4 of 10 stars


  • Denny

    16 books on my favorites list now 17 love DeMille and John Corey


  • Rex Fuller

    I found John Corey, the lead character in DeMille’s main series, in the 2017 collection of short mysteries entitled Matchup. His basic humanity, in part veiled by and in part revealed by his wisecracking attitude, his anti-PC attitude, and lightning quick mind struck chords with me. So, I read the first book of the series, Plum Island. That sold me and I then read straight through all of the books in the series.Night Fall (Corey Book 3). When TWA Flight 800 went down, the initial news included [...]


  • Kelly ...

    I really liked The Lion's Game so I quickly found which book came next and began reading it boy am I glad that I did. I enjoyed Night Fall even more than the prior book! And, since I gave it four stars -- and looking back I wouldn't change that rating -- I had to think about whether I could really rate a spy novel 5 stars. (I usually find that difficult to justify because there are many classics that I don't think deserve that rating.) But, I loved this book from beginning to end. I found the p [...]


  • Shelley

    This is my first Nelson DeMille book. It is not the typical genre I read, but this came highly recommended so I wanted to check it out. The main character is written like your typical, arrogant, NY detective so if you can get past the over the top machismo, this book is enjoyable. There were a couple of nice twists and turns and it definitely kept me interested. I would probably read more books by this author.


  • Wesley

    I enjoyed this book a lot. Based on the true story of TWA 800, the airplane that crashed off the coast of New York in 1997. John Corey is back as a clever, but more mature protagonist than his first appearance in Plum Island. Listening to Scott Brick narrate the book is a treat. Three and a half stars.

    من الصعب الكتابة عن هذه الرواية بدون إفسادها، لذا لا أستطيع الكتابة عنها كثيراًلو رأى شخص أمريكي تقييمي لهذه الرواية، لقال أني أنزلت من تقييمها لأنها تتحدث عن الإرهاب، والصحيح أن تقييمها كان سيئاً بالنسبة لي لضعف كبير في الحبكة، وتناقضات وضعها الكاتب فقط لكي يتم حبكته.لن أت [...]
