LoveReading View on All the Little Pieces

All the Little Pieces should come with a warning label: this is not a light easy read, it’s disturbing, sad, unsettling and… addictive. You are launched straight into the terrified thoughts of a young woman scrambling, crawling and battling for her life, then with a startling change of direction you find yourself sitting in a car with Faith as she drives herself and her four year old daughter home through a storm. You feel the beginning of this novel has set the stage for an inevitable journey, however the road taken by the author leads to unexpected stops and diversions. Hoffman maintains a bitingly taut tension through out, there is a harsh rawness and a feeling of sad reality that lingers as you turn the pages. If you believe in fairytales and everyone living happily ever after, perhaps best not to read this different and breathtakingly chilling book. ~ Liz Robinson

All the Little Pieces Synopsis

She could have stopped an awful crime. She could have saved a life. She tried to forget about it. But now, the truth is out. The terrifying new psychological thriller from the bestselling author of Retribution and Pretty Little Things. GIRLS ARE DISAPPEARING IN PALM BEACH COUNTY Prostitutes, strippers - girls who don't have a loving home to miss them, who disappear through the cracks. DETECTIVE BRYAN NILL CAN'T PROVE IT'S A SERIAL KILLER He just knows it in his gut. But without a witness, he's got nothing. FAITH IS FEELING GUILTY She's tried to put that night out of her mind - the girl's face pressed to the window, begging for help. She's tried telling herself she was right to keep the door locked. BUT SHE WASN'T THE ONLY ONE IN THE CAR When Faith's four-year-old daughter identifies the girl on the news, Detective Nill gets his witness. And Faith's life starts to unravel.

  • Fiona Rothery - 'This is an excellent thriller with all the components needed to make it a compelling page turner.'
  • Joan Sidwell - 'A brilliant read, atmospheric and menacing, great characterisation, particularly the detective, Bryan Nill, highly recommended.'
  • Edel Waugh - 'This was a gruesome and terrifying story that caused real unease and discomfort while reading it and the ending, oh my!! I recommend this for all thriller book lovers out there.'
  • Suzanne Marsh - 'So much happens in this unputdownable thriller, your heart will keep pounding throughout!' 
  • Maxine Broadbent - 'Much more than the usual serial killer thriller...This is a genuinely fast moving, exciting book with so many interweaving threads it is impossible to guess what will happen next.  I highly recommend it.'
  • Melanie Rose - 'Gripping page-turner...It shows how easy it is to make the wrong decision and how it can spiral into something you could never imagine.'
  • Cleo Bannister - 'This is a superb thriller, well-written with a great array of characters. The tension is there from the start but ratchets up to unbearable levels as the story progresses to its satisfying conclusion.'
  • Linda Benner - 'Gruesome, chilling, haunting. I have never read a book quite like this before. I couldn't wait to turn the page, yet at the same time I dreaded turning the page.'
  • Carol Peace - 'This is a great read and I found my opinion on Faith changing at every turn but also questioning 'would I have opened the car door?' I wonder whether you would?'
  • Sheila Dale - 'As an avid fan of Julianne Hoffman's previous books I was rather disappointed in this one. I didn't find the main character sympathetic or believable.'
  • Maureen Gourlay - 'Gripping storyline...Julianne Hoffman has crafted a great read, provoking the reader to wonder what they would have done in Faiths position.'
  • Victoria Goldman - 'This is a roller coaster read - an enjoyable mixture of dramatic courtroom drama, psychological thriller and crime novel. I read it in one sitting, but was slightly let down by the ending.'
  • Phylippa Smithson - 'If you like ‘full on’ American lifestyle writing, blended into a fast-paced thriller, then this is one for you.  It won’t win awards and it may grate, but it is readable.'
