Kimberley was a beautiful young girl with the world at her feet.
Before she fell.
Before she was gone.
When Kimberley Williams jumps off Southerndown Cliff, her family and the close-knit community are shocked. What would make her take her own life when she had so much of it left to live?
Detective Anna Gwynne is assigned to the case after it becomes clear that someone made Kimberley jump. Someone had been sending Kimberley messages, saying they would tell everyone her secret…
Then Anna realises there are others, all being sent the same messages, all with their lives at risk. To find the truth she will have to confront her own past, the lies she’s told about her childhood and the demons hidden there…
Can she save these innocent lives?
What is the secret they’re all dying for?
An absolutely gripping thriller that will hook you from beginning to end. If you love Val McDermid, Angela Marsons and Robert Dugoni, you won’t be able to put down Before She Falls.
This is the third book in the DI Anna Gwynne series and having read and thoroughly enjoyed the previous two books, I had been eagerly awaiting the release of this one, Before She Falls, the third book in the series!
I really enjoyed the plot for this one and I loved catching up with Anna and getting to know more about her background and personal life- she is a fascinating and believable character that has been really well developed.
I thought that the pace was very good and I was gripped by the storyline from the first few pages. It was well written and had a great flow to it so I had read over half of the book before I even realised and I finished it off later on the same evening – that is the sign for me of a good read!
Four stars from me for this one, highly recommended and an enjoyable, gripping story!
