Staff Reviews

Before the Fall is a page-turning, character-driven novel that reads like a thriller but is so much more. The story begins with a plane crash that leaves only two survivors, a down-on-his luck painter and a four-year-old boy who is the last remaining member of a wealthy and powerful media (think tabloids) mogul's family. Alternating between flashbacks that reveal the backstories of the doomed passengers and the present, one question looms large - was the crash the result of a sinister conspiracy or just bad luck?

“When a private plane plunges into the ocean off Martha's Vineyard, the media and the government want answers. The two survivors -- a middle-aged artist along for the ride and the 4-year-old son of a prominent and powerful family - have little to say. Before the Fall takes the reader on a thrilling ride through the past lives of the other passengers and the aftermath of the crash. As the deepest secrets of the wealthy and those who surround them surface, no one is safe. A brilliant and relentless thriller.”
— Geoffrey Jennings (M), Rainy Day Books, Fairway, KS
