Night Over Water Summary

Night Over Water by Ken Follett

Set during the outbreak of the Second World War, Night Over Water is about a perilous journey across the Atlantic to escape Britain, from the number one bestseller and master of the historical thriller, Ken Follett.

The Eve of War
Britain has just declared war against Nazi Germany. In Southampton, the world's most luxurious airliner, the Pan American Clipper, takes off on its final flight to neutral New York - a haven for those fleeing the conflict.

A Disparate Group Flees
The passengers aboard the plane each have their own reasons for leaving Britain. Amongst them are an English aristocrat fleeing with his family and a fortune in jewels; a German scientist running away from the Nazis; a murderer returning under FBI escort; a wife escaping her controlling husband; and a devious thief determined to keep his spoils.

A Journey into Danger
Trapped on the plane, with only their fellow passengers for company, their journey over the Atlantic becomes increasingly fraught. Especially when it becomes apparent a plot is unfolding that may endanger all of their lives . . .

About Ken Follett

The international number one bestseller Ken Follett has published over thirty books in a career spanning more than forty years. With global sales in excess of 170 million copies, his novels have been sold in over eighty countries and translated into thirty-seven languages. Ken was just twenty-seven when he wrote the award-winning thriller Eye of the Needle, which became an international success, but he surprised everyone in 1989 with The Pillars of the Earth. This story about the building of a cathedral in the Middle Ages continues to captivate millions of readers all over the world, and was voted into the top 100 of Britain's best-loved books in the BBC's The Big Read. Married to Barbara Follett, the former Labour Member of Parliament for Stevenage, Ken and his family live in a rambling rectory in Hertfordshire and also spend time in London and Antigua. An ardent admirer of the theatre, Ken is often seen at productions of Shakespeare's plays when not indulging his passions for writing and playing bass guitar.
