LoveReading View on Since We Fell

A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

A stand alone psychological thriller by the author of the Gennaro and Kenzie novels, Mystic River and Shutter Island, this represents something of a departure for Lehane. Rachel Childs, a former journalist, with a baggage of bad experiences, comes across an old friend who wishes to help her overcome her fears and the encounter just uncovers a fiurther barrel of traumas and problems, including the identity of the father whose existence her mother had always shielded from her. With a failed marriage and on-air TV breakdown to her credit, Rachel is anything but strong and though a new marriage briefly brings some relief, it too soon begins to fall apart and Rachel has to bring her journalistic skills to an investigation into both her life and the life of others. Splendidly-engineered, wide-ranging plotting and Lehane's intuitive pulse for human frailties make this a compelling read. ~ Maxim Jakubowski

I LOVED YOU I HATED YOU I NEVER KNEW YOU...Rachel's husband adores her. When she hit rock bottom, he was there with her every step of the way as she slowly regained her confidence, and her sanity.

Since We Fell Press Reviews

'Lehane has written two books - one, an insightful examination of the search for identity and belonging, and two, a thriller that constantly leaves you guessing - and then smashed them together into one terrific read. Lehane is the master of complex human characters thrust into suspenseful, page-turning situations. In short, I hate him. But I'll read anything he writes' Gillian Flynn

'The most thrilling novel I'll read all year. Since We Fell is simmering with emotion, menace, and humour. I loved it.' Kate Atkinson

'Complex, tense, compelling, and an emotional and strategic hall of mirrors, where nothing is what it seems - but I would follow Dennis Lehane anywhere' Lee Child

'In Since We Fell we see the same enormous talent and literary skill that has characterized his other work. Few use language that has such raw power. His ability to create levels of tension that cause the reader to sweat in a cold room has no peer. This story is hard to put down. The mystery and intrigue never let go; the heart-racing tempo and twists and turns are engaging and unexpected all the way down the track' James Lee Burke

'One of crime fiction's most exciting and well-orchestrated finales-rife with dramatic tension and buttressed by rich psychological interplay between the characters. Don't be surprised if Since We Fell makes readers forget about that other psychological thriller featuring an unstable heroine named Rachel. Booklist What seems at the start to be an edgy psychological mystery seamlessly transforms into a crafty, ingenious tale of murder and deception' Kirkus

'Once you pick up a Dennis Lehane novel you're hooked. It's just that simple. Since We Fell is a complex, compelling, page-turner of a novel from a master storyteller at the top of his game.' Kristin Hannah, New York Times bestselling author
