Wow. I’ve literally just finished this book and I’m blown away by this action packed, adrenaline pumping and hair raising crime thriller- The Fall by Tristan Bancks.
As a librarian I try to read as many books as I can but this one, as soon as it arrived, I couldn’t put it down.
The main character, Sam- a want to be crime reporter is visiting his Dad, Harry Garner (a real crime reporter).
But in the middle of the night Sam hears raised voices and witnesses a body fall from the apartment above his. His father is missing and Sam, using his amateur detective skills is determined to find out who killed this man as soon as he can.
Enlisting the help of his Dad’s dog, Magic and his neighbour, Scarlet, he finds out more than he bargained for and lands himself in more trouble than he thought.
The Fall is a gripping story that not only is an amazing read but it teaches the reader many tips about being yourself, believing in yourself and living life with open eyes, open ears and an open heart.
I loved the Ten Commandments of life that Sam creates on reflection of the dramatic events that happened that fateful evening.
They are something that all young readers should aim to live by.
Can’t wait for some more great suspense raising reads by Tristan Bancks.
