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

It is dusk on July l7, 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 pleasure … and 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 fifth anniversary of the crash, two members of the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force set out to reopen the case: John Corey, a former NYPD detective, and his wife, Kate Mayfield, a career FBI agent. Together, they hunt for the crucial video—and race toward an elusive truth even more horrifying than the crash itself.

Quotes & Awards

  • “With inspired writing and the tension-inducing talents of a true master, Nelson DeMille delves into one of the most mysterious tragedies in recent history—TWA Flight 800…his most entertaining and skillful novel to date.”

    Dan Brown, #1 New York Times bestselling author

  • “What ratchets up the tension in this capably written thriller is what the reader knows but Corey doesn’t as he heads for a showdown…You don’t have to believe in conspiracies or government cover-ups to find his latest engrossing, entertaining, and enlightening.”

    Amazon.com

  • “The pages will turn in a blur as a feeling of dread grows, until the end comes and one’s worst fears are confirmed. Readers will think about this one for a long time.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “As usual, DeMille spins a well-crafted, timely, and exciting tale. Corey is a cynical and sarcastic ex-cop who’s been around the block at least once too often, while Mayfield is a straight-arrow FBI lawyer who wants desperately to do right for the dead of Flight 800. To do so, they must deal with sinister forces within their own government as they unknowingly count down to 9/11. Strongly recommended for most popular-fiction collections.”

    Library Journal

  • “This real-life tragedy hands DeMille perhaps his finest plot ever, one that involves real feeling and will have you squirming and calling out at various dangers.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Scott Brick has a clear take on Nelson DeMille’s tension-rich style. Building the suspense and puzzling through layers of questions, Brick leads listeners with a comfortable style. Using enough character voices to keep the portraits clear, he colors Corey with a vocal depiction that lets the wise-guy sarcasm bloom while the ‘won’t-take-no’ instincts run deep alongside. Nicely nuanced and involving.”

    " As an audio book for a long, long drive, which is how I ate this one, this gets five stars. If I had read it as a novel, it would have gotten maybe four. A great take on the TWA 800 "accident" through the vehicle of a fun detective story. "

    " great story, grabs the readers attention and love the action and tension between characters. everything was great until the last few pages and the highly recommended book turned into the cheapest ending possible, quick and doesn't attempt to close any story lines. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike | 12/26/2013

    " awesome. incredible ending. "

    " Must read book about the conspiracy surrounding the crash of TWA Flight 800 off the coast of New York. Completely tense, totally exciting, and a killer ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie Kaz | 11/3/2013

    " A MUST READ!!!!! One of my all-time favorite books! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth Nelson | 10/23/2013

    " Excellent thriller but contained an excessive and unnecessary amount of bad language. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise | 10/20/2013

    " A great read with a stunningly satisfying conclusion. My years as a flight attendant may color this review, but for me, it just works. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 9/14/2013

    " I love Nelson Demille books and this one was good. The story was a bit slow but it was still suspenseful. On the last few chapters I wasn't sure how the story would wrap up in so little pages but the end was kind of perfect. Great mystery-thriller! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 5/21/2013

    " Awesome book. I like detective kind of stuff, so it was a great read for me. Also...the end is full of suspense, and it makes the notion of something that happened to this country years ago, a time that no one in our generation will ever forget. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Steph | 4/11/2013

    " I stopped reading about 75 pages in. I felt like I had been reading the same technical information repeated over and over again for at least 50 pages. I finally couldn't take it anymore and had to throw in the towel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noel | 2/27/2013

    " A chilling look at Flight 800 which exploded over Long Island Sound in 1996. Part non-fiction and part fiction, the author leaves it up to the reader to make a judgment call on this one. Land to air missile? or engine malfunction? "

    " Amazing. I am so glad a coworker turned me onto Nelson Demille. I love the John Corey series and this one is the best one yet (granted I'm only 3 books into the series, but still). I listen to the audiobooks and Scott Brick is John Corey. I can't wait to read the next one in the series. "

    John Corey investigates the facts and the conspiracy behind the case, and keeps you enthralled until the shocking ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kendar88 | 3/27/2011

    " First 2/3 of book is not very exciting. There is no villain until Nash comes back from the dead. Then there is a lot of planning all for nothing because 9/11 blows up everyone at the big meeting. Kinda clever how we know that that is going to be apart of the book, but kinda a wimp out for closure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 3/22/2011

    " I've enjoyed several of DeMIlle's books. I had read this one awhile ago and was equally mesmerized by this page-turner the second time around. "

    " Pretty good story - like his writing style... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 3/10/2011

    " Fast paced and interesting... I will probably be picking up some others in this series in the future. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthew | 3/9/2011

    " I loved tagging along on another case with John Corey. While there's no definitive conclusion per se, I thought the ending refocused the story in a way that did give some sense of cadence to the work. "
