July 24, 2016

On a foggy summer night, eleven people depart Martha's Vineyard on a private jet bound for New York. Sixteen minutes later, the plane plunges into the ocean and only two people survive. This is how the new novel, "Before the Fall," opens. It's one of the best suspense novels of the year. The author is Noah Hawley, who's made a name for himself as the executive producer and writer of the award-winning TV series, "Fargo." And yes, "Fargo" is inspired by the Coen Brothers' film of the same name.
