The FBI don't take kindly to the case being looked into again and, as John Corey's instincts and investigations clearly show anomalies, he and Kate are sent off to the Yemen and Tanzania for a month or so each as punishment. On his return, John is not put off - he has ten days' leave. Ten days in which to avoid the FBI and to find that elusive video tape taken by two adulterous lovers on the beach which may - or may not - show a sea-to-air missile racing up to hit the TWA Flight 800...An exciting, edge-of-the-seat thriller - Nelson DeMille's best to date. * www nelsondemille.netRead Less

Tight Suspense !
Using the facts of the crash of TWA Fight 800, DeMille weaves a suspenseful and terrifying scenario leading to the cause of the crash. The characters created are likereal everyday people with their own weaknesses. I finished the book in just three sittings. A must read for mystery lovers.

BUT NOT THE TAPE VERSION - defective tapping
Having just recently received it, I was excited. I purchased the cassette version: unfortunately, I could only rate it .... Rating One Star . I read the book some time ago and thought it would be good to listen to it during drive time, but I can't. The tapes plays garbled. For a few seconds you can hear it fine, then two to five or so seconds...it's intelligible and garbled, garbled at best...on each of the tapes. That' nine tapes. What a shame, it is a good story. I consider the story in the book, having read it.... Rating Five Stars
Unfortunately, the audio tape version I received was useless. Yet, buy the book. Just don't take a chance on the tape version. IT'S A GREAT BOOK. I have purchased several other of Neville's books on tape, both abridged and un- abrigdged, with no problems and have also often orderer several of those BOOKS ON TAPES, (Neville's) as giftsand sent them directly to friends...with no complaints.
This is the first one from Alibris that I ordered and purchased on tape and it wasn't near up to their regular top level of quality of products and service.
Alibris' books are top quality, regardless of their sources. This tape must simply be a unfortunate fluke; to my grave disappointment. This was just so totally unexpexted.
Buy the book, it is a great read, you just can't drive to it.
ALIBRIS is still a quality provider, just one slipped through.
