What are you reading right now? Before the Fall by Noah Hawley
Short synopsis: On a summer night, a private jet from the Vineyard to New York crashes into the Atlantic. Two people survive, one of them a small boy whose father was an immensely powerful media mogul. Why did the plane crash? And what will the media do to the survivors? Short review: This thriller has rave quotes from both Michael Cunningham and James Patterson. It’s a thought-provoking page-turner. It’s brilliant.
