As the war breaks out across Europe in advance of the Nazi horde Pan American Airlines has a luxury seaplane that astonishingly can get passengers across to American in little more than 24 hours. As a luxury plane it is filled with rather fortunate souls…some escaping, some running away…some trying to get home in time to stop tragedy. In Night over Water author Ken Follett gives the glimpse of lives thrust together in the confines of a large and opulent airliner. Though rather large and roomy the intrigue and inter action between and among the passengers makes for some interesting reading.
Ken Follett is a masterful story-teller and I wonder why it’s been so long since I have read some of his work.
