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.

Synopsis

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.'

Reviews

Kavanagh tells the story with great verve, weaving the strands of her story expertly. Daily Mail Dark, tense and convincing, this is a brilliantly executed and engrossing thriller. An extremely assured debut. Sunday Mirror A brilliant debut. Marie Claire We predict big things for Emma Kavanagh ... addictive. Good Housekeeping Thoughtful, often dark and devastatingly honest ... Falling marks the arrival on the crime scene of a major new talent, one with the potential to join the likes of PD James and Ruth Rendell as a writer who thrills her readers by making them think.
