Lovereading view...

This smart, sharp psychological page-turner will keep crime and thriller fans gripped for ‘just’ one more chapter until the early hours. It’s a riveting, read-in-one-sitting rollercoaster fuelled by engrossing emotional suspense. Hannah is in a high-suicide-risk psychiatric clinic, so when the death of a fellow patient is put down to her having cut her own wrists “with a shard of caramelized sugar” shortly after the suicide of another patient, no one suspects that foul play is afoot. No one except Hannah, that is. “It’s not true”, she asserts, feeling just as frightened of being right as she is of being wrong. If she’s right, maybe she’ll be the next to fall, while being wrong might mean she’s “as crazy as they all think I am”. When more patients die, it seems that everyone’s at risk, and everyone’s a suspect. But who will believe her? The tension mounts to intense extremes as the story snakes in entirely unexpected directions. The twist in this tale is sublimely clever, the characters are consummately well-formed, and this is a masterwork of the genre. ~ Joanne Owen

Reviews

'Tammy Cohen can twist a story better than any crime writer I know' Jane Casey

'I devoured this book in one sitting; it's gripping throughout with a brilliant twist in the tip of its tail'
Erin Kelly, author of bestselling He Said She Said

'A gripping, complex, twisty read from one of my favourite authors. I always know that when I pick up a Tammy Cohen book, I will not be able to put it down & They All Fall Down certainly lived up to my expectations. This book will demand your attention and will not let go!' Emma Kavanagh

'Brilliant, twisty, clever - another gripping thriller from Tammy Cohen. I absolutely loved it' Lisa Jewell

'The setting is brilliant and original, and the plot so tight and tense that once I'd started I had to keep reading. I didn't know who to trust or who to believe and found the characters and story staying with me long after I'd finished reading.' Louise Douglas
