    It's a promotional stunt done by the producers of Lost. Or pilot error. One of the two.

    "Night Fall" by Nelson DeMille. Great read. All about TWA Flight 800. You won't be able to put it down. It's also historically interesting since the book was released right before 9/11.

    Nelson DeMille has quite a few books like that -- you can't put them down. I wish he would write more.
