McAuliffe Book Group: Before the Fall by Noah Hawley

On a foggy summer night, a private jet headed from Martha’s Vineyard to New York plunges into the ocean leaving only two survivors. With chapters weaving between the aftermath of the crash and the backstories of the passengers and crew members, the mystery surrounding the tragedy heightens. Amidst an escalating storm of media outrage and accusations, the survivors struggle to cope and the authorities scramble to salvage the truth from the wreckage.
