Nelson DeMille biography
Nelson Richard DeMille (born August 23, 1943) is an American author of thriller novels. His works include Word of Honor, The Charm School, The Gold Coast, Plum Island, and The General's Daughter, which was made into a movie starring John Travolta. DeMille has also written under the pen names Jack Cannon, Kurt Ladner, and Brad Matthews.
Many of DeMille's books are written in the first person, and as such his books follow a linear plot line in which the reader moves along with the main character. Although the tone of his writing varies with his books, he often includes a liberal dash of sarcasm. Most DeMille novels, especially the more recent, avoid "Hollywood endings" and instead finish either inconclusively or with the hero successfully exposing the secret/solving the mystery while suffering in his career or personal life as a result. There are generally loose ends left for the reader to puzzle over, Night Fall being a perfect example.
DeMille often uses Long Island as a setting in his novels, for example in The Gold Coast, Plum Island, Word of Honor, and Night Fall. His most recent novels have followed two main characters, John Corey and Paul Brenner. At first, the story lines were completely separate, but there have been hints in the novels that they are part of a larger "DeMille Universe" that references events and characters in earlier novels, such as The Gold Coast and The Charm School.Information source: wikipedia
