Falling by Emma Kavanagh

Lovereading view...

Following four main characters with lots of interplay between numerous secondary people, this grips you from the opening sentence and propels you through their trauma until all unite in a dramatic end. It is one of the best psychological thrillers you’ll read this year. A terrific book about which I am not prepared to tell you anything. Just read it.

If you like Emma Kavanagh you might also like to read books by Nicci French, Tana French and S. J. Watson.

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Four people with something to hide: Jim is a retired police officer whose much-loved daughter has vanished, and he is desperate to find her. After a plane crash, Tom’s wife must break grim news to her son. Cecilia has lost her family and survived the crash, and Freya, grieving the loss of her father, is discovering dark secrets in the past. The skill with which Emma Kavanagh weaves together the disparate plot strands is admirable.

Falling by Emma Kavanagh

This is a brilliant debut psychological thriller by a former police psychologist. It is perfect for fans of Nicci French, Tana French and S. J. Watson. A plane falls out of the sky. A woman is murdered. Four people all have something to hide. Jim is a retired police officer, and worried father. His beloved daughter has disappeared and he knows something is wrong. Tom has woken up to discover that his wife was on the plane and must break the news to their only son. Cecilia had packed up and left her family. Now she has survived a tragedy, and sees no way out. Freya is struggling to cope with the loss of her father. But as she delves into his past, she may not like what she finds. 'Before the plane crash, after the plane crash, such a short amount of time for the world to turn on its head.'
