* * * * *
“You have one hour to live.”
Those are the only words on the phone call. Then they hang up. Surely, a prank? A mistake? A wrong number? Anything but the chilling truth… That someone is watching, waiting, working to take your life in one hour.
The job of finding out falls to DI Helen Grace: a woman with a track record in hunting killers. However, this is A case where the killer seems to always be one step ahead of the police and the victims.
With no motive, no leads, no clues – nothing but pure fear – an hour can last a lifetime…
I think I love Helen Grace even more after reading this book. She is one strong, kick a** protagonist who I seriously can not get enough off. Whether it’s because she is everything I’m not, I don’t know, but you can’t help but admire this woman. The friendship between her and Charlie is especially endearing and if anything, I feel like we are seeing a more vulnerable side to the character lately. This comes through her relationship with Charlie and also Joseph.
The story started off strong with a victim being told they have one hour to live. From those first few pages, it becomes very clear that this is going to be a race against time. The ending had me clinging on for dear life and I had to remind myself to breath as you could cut the tension with a knife it that was thick. This is an author who knows how to hook his readers and delivers thrills and excitement with each chapter. What took place between the beginning and ending was every bit as gripping with the fear from the victims leaping off the pages.
All Fall Down was every bit as good as I had expected it would be. Helen’s personal life is certainly no plain sailing as it is with her work life. She always manages to put herself in danger which makes me want to give her a good shake yet it makes for hand over the mouth reading. If you love tense, steady to fast paced thrillers with action and excitement around each corner, you have got to read this series. Today!
My thanks to Tracy for inviting me to be on the tour and to Orion Books and NetGalley for an advanced readers copy of the book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
