Winner of the 2017 EDGAR AWARD FOR BEST NOVEL and the 2017 INTERNATIONAL THRILLER WRITERS AWARD FOR BEST NOVEL FROM THE AWARD-WINNING CREATOR OF FARGO COMES 'ONE THE YEAR'S BEST SUSPENSE NOVELS' (NEW YORK TIMES). On a foggy summer night, eleven people--ten privileged, one down-on-his-luck painter--depart Martha's Vineyard on a private jet headed for New York. Sixteen minutes later, the unthinkable happens: the plane plunges into the ocean. The only survivors are the painter Scott Burroughs and a four-year-old boy, who is now the last remaining member of an immensely wealthy and powerful media mogul's family.

Was it by chance that so many influential people perished? Or was something more sinister at work? A storm of media attention brings Scott fame that quickly morphs into notoriety and accusations, and he scrambles to salvage truth from the wreckage. Amid trauma and chaos, the fragile relationship between Scott and the young boy grows and glows at the heart of this stunning novel, raising questions of fate, morality, and the inextricable ties that bind us together.

Kristin Hannah raves, 'Noah Hawley really knows how to keep a reader turning the pages... a complex, compulsively readable thrill ride of a novel.'


  • John Shanahan

    There was way too much description about irrelevant stuff that had no bearing on the plot. The plot seemed week. This book starts with a crash then walks the reader through the life of each passenger. Each passengers life started a new mini book. I felt like I was starting several books over and over. A good overall message about a corrupt press. Overall I kept reading.

  • Erica Udall

    One of the best it not THE best narration I've ever listened to. Book was thrilling and interesting. Loved and absolutely recommend!

  • Kathleen Dobrovic

    Excellent! Intriguing and well thought out. I almost listened twice but didn't in the end.

  • tanya lessenberry

    A great book, kept me intrigued and didn't want to stop listening. Only negative was the language was too profane for me.

  • Leah McDonnell

    This book was just "ok" for me. Lots of dragging in the middle. Ended well.

  • Barbara Buzbee

    This was a great listen!

  • Donna Mik

    Enjoyed the way the story unfolded and how author took us to the past and present with characters. Storyline was interesting and kept you wondering what really happened.

  • Dale Ranson

    Interesting book, like the way he infused personal stories with plot. Narrator was fair, not great. Thought the author tried to hard to be "literary", lost excitement of plot at times. Felt like he was trying to hard to be thoughtful. But, would recommend.
