Rating: 3 stars, disappointing

This #TBT review was originally posted on January 20, 2008 and was read for a number of reading challenges: Chunkster, A to Z Titles (N), 101 Books in 1,001 Days.

I really enjoy reading thrillers…the adrenaline rush as you turn pages to see what happens next and vicariously live through the characters. Not so much with “Night Fall.” Don’t get me wrong, the premise was good…a couple who are both married to other people decide yo videotape having sex on the beach (that definitely sounds crass) and manage to film the crash of TWA Flight 800.

The tape would prove to the world that the crash was precipitated by a missile rather than mechanical failure as the government claimed. Enter our hero John Corey who five years later becomes embroiled in finding out the truth. I have to say that I felt extremely gypped by the ending, which was truly a major cop out by the author. If you are in the mood for a thriller, pick up “The General’s Daughter” by Nelson DeMille instead.
