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."

Review:

An Amazon Best Book of June 2016: Noah Hawley’s new novel begins with the crash of a private plane carrying some very influential people on board. The only survivors are the young son of a media mogul and an obscure painter who, given his less than elevated status, seems like a wild card from the start. What happened on that flight? Why did the plane go down and if it was intentional, who was the target? With each chapter of Before the Fall, Hawley peels back another layer of the lives of those onboard that fatal flight meanwhile, the media speculation and accusations in the days after the crash threaten to overwhelm truth and decency. The end is surprising, even a little bit of a “huh.” moment at first, but it’s an ending that sinks in and starts the wheels turning on everything that came before it, which, to me, is the hallmark of an unforgettable story. --Seira Wilson, The Amazon Book Review

Book Description Hardcover. Book Condition: New. From the Emmy Award-winning creator of Fargo and writer for the hit television seriesBones comes the thriller to read in 2016. On a foggy summer night, 10 people--nine privileged, one down-on-his-luck painter--board a private jet in Martha's Vineyard. The plane never reaches its destination, and the only survivors are Scott Burroughs--the painter--and a four-year-old boy, the last remaining member of a wealthy media mogul's family. With chapters weaving between their gripping survival story and the backstories of the passengers, the mystery surrounding the crash heightens. As the passengers' intrigues unravel, odd coincidences point to a conspiracy: was it by chance that so many influential people perished, or was something more sinister at work? Amidst heart-pounding suspense, the fragile relationship between Scott and the boy glows at the heart of the novel, raising questions of fate, human nature, and the inextricable ties that bind us together.
