LoveReading Expert Review of The Fallen

After a traumatic accident, that leaves his senses mixed up, Detective Robbie Brownlaw can now see people’s emotions as colours, giving him the uncanny ability of knowing when someone is lying to him, a handy trick for a homicide cop. It sounds like a bit of a reach but Parker is a good writer and completely suspends belief in Brownlaw’s new found gift and the plot has so many other factors and characters involved this makes for absorbing stuff. This writer should be up there with the Michael Connelly’s and Harlan Coben’s of the world.

The Fallen Synopsis

What if you could tell someone was a killer just by looking at them?

Detective Robbie Brownlaw can. A six-storey plunge from a burning hotel leaves him with the usual broken bones – and something different. Synesthesia. The ability to see words and emotions as colours makes Robbie a human lie detector.

It's a condition that might have helped Garrett Asplundth. Hired to look into rumours surrounding a certain madam's Little Black Book, Garrett found a lot more than the usual round of losers and sad husbands. But the dirt came at a high price.

Now he's dead and it's only when Robbie gets hold of the book that he finds out just why Garrett was so curious - and why others will kill to get it back…
