It has been a long time since I read a book by Follett. His books tend to be long but they are so worth it. He is such an amazing writer and I always learn something historical. This one, the main thing I learned was about the flying boats. Never heard of them before. WOW.

This book was about the Clipper (a flying bloat) and the people aboard. it takes place at the beginning of WWII. Most of the people aboard are fleeing England for some reason. There are a couple of love stories. A family with a father that is very controlling of his adult daughters. A woman fleeing a boring marriage with her lover. A scientist fleeing the Nazi's. A gangster being returned by the FBI. A jewel thief fleeing prosecution. It makes an interesting journey that gets more interesting when one of the engineers' wife has been kidnapped and the request is that he bring down the boat early.

A very good read that I did not want to put down. I easily could have stayed up all night reading this book. In fact, I stayed up way late a few nights on this one ( )

I know Ken Follett more for his big historical medieval works. Night Over Water started off a little lightweight, but I soon got caught up in the narrative. With a couple of different storylines happening throughout, it was like watching a black & white Saturday afternoon '50s movie. By the halfway mark I was totally caught up in the buildup of tension and found myself binging to read to the end! It's historical fiction for sure, set just prior to WW2. It's got everything - British aristocracy, jewel thieves, blackmail, German spies, the FBI, a kidnapping and a wife on the run! ( )

Reread during Covid-19 year. Another well constructed thriller with the back story of some of the characters developed in the 1st chapters followed by their interactions when on a flying sea plane flight between England and USA at the very beginning of the 2nd WW. Nazi threads, theft and romance as well as family tensions and business dealings. ( )
