    Good sense of place spoiled by poor finale

    Davidson is a master at getting you to reevaluate characters as you move through her mysteries. The book also gets high marks for having a strong sense of place. (Some mysteries seem like they could take place anywhere.) The big negative of this book is that the ending is very unbelievable.

    arm chair adventure

    This second outing for travel writer Lily Moore is great for the explorer, armchair or not!. Lily and her best friend Jesse Robb arrive at Machu Picchu only to stumble upon a heated argument and a woman's fall to her death. Davidson includes fantastic location details and literary references as the suspense builds. Plenty of twists and turns kept this reader guessing and Davidson wraps it up neatly at the end. Throughout, descriptions of historical sites, art museums, the Incas and regional fare enhance the adventure. So, I have added Machu Picchu to my bucket list, as well as Davidson's next book in March 2013. Davidson just gets better!

    Thriller at its Best!

    Winner of the Anthony Award, Hilary Davidson writes a follow-up to her debut novel “The Damage Done” with another great thriller.

    Lily Moore, unable to shake the guilt of her sister’s death and relentlessly badgered by her best friend Jesse Robb, agrees to dust herself off and get back to her work as a travel writer. Jesse and Lily have worked together on several assignments travelling to far off places: Lily writing and Jesse taking photographs for freelance work and tourist magazines. So now, Lily finds herself hiking through the wet jungles of Peru in search of Machu Picchu and wondering what on earth she’s gotten herself into this time.

    Standing at the edge of the ancient city watching the sun rise, Lily and Jesse hear an ear-curdling scream and immediately run toward the sound only to find a woman’s body crumpled below the immense stone staircase. While Jesse runs to find help, Lily stays to comfort the woman and ends up hearing the last words of a dying woman, words that incriminate her missing boyfriend. The man that Lily witnesses running from the top of the stairs.

    After trying to get the local police to treat the fall as a murder rather than the suicide of a drug addict, Lily is determined to investigate by herself to prove it’s murder. This is a decision both she and Jesse will soon regret as they find themselves the recipients of death threats and attempted murder in order to keep them from achieving their goal.

    Lily discovers the depths which a madman will go to protect his family especially when one of them is a murderer…or maybe more than one.

    With “The Next One to Fall” Hilary Davidson takes her readers on a rollercoaster ride from one thrilling situation to the next. She deftly writes a story that will have you thinking you’ve got it all figured out only to throw you off into another direction until her final reveal. Davidson is definitely a writer to watch.
