Most Helpful Customer Reviews
From the eye-catching cover to the very last word, The Fallen will have you begging for more of this author's work. Twists and turns abound with an ending you won't see coming.
This book was well written with several sub-plots that all tied together at the end. There was enough detail to know the author is a fireman but not so much that the details became boring. I can't wait to get started on the West Baden trilogy.
Great Book well written' keeps you on the edge of your chair and if you like this one you must read the West Baden Murder triology by the same author
The author is a real-life firefighter, and it certainly shows with his gripping detail. Sometimes the fires are so real you can feel the heat and smell the burning wood. Add this to the mystery which pits a veteran arson investigator against an arsonist burning down churches with black congregations, and you've got a novel that feels like the real thing. The investigator's nephew, a local detective, begins to uncover a secret his uncle has kept from him most of his life about his parents' deaths, which serves as a second mystery. The book moves along well, has incredible detail, and the characters are unique and three-dimentional. A must for anyone who enjoys a good mystery or stories about the fire department!
This book really keeps you interested. The author really did his homework and research. I would recommend The Fallen to any fan of murder mysteries, firemen, or anyone who just enjoys reading a good book.
