A fast-paced, action-packed story that will have readers on the edge of their seats, from the award-winning author of Two Wolves.

In the middle of the night, Sam is woken by angry voices from the apartment above.

He goes to the window to see what’s happening – only to hear a struggle, and see a body fall from the sixth-floor balcony. Pushed, Sam thinks.

Sam goes to wake his father, Harry, a crime reporter, but Harry is gone. And when Sam goes downstairs, the body is gone, too. But someone has seen Sam, and knows what he’s witnessed.

The next twenty-four hours could be his last.

Industry Reviews

"The Fall has all the hallmarks of a gripping crime thriller. Upper primary year students and beyond will be caught by the author's easy-to-read writing style and the fast pace at which this novel progresses. It will be a real hook for boys, particularly, at the age when some begin to disengage with literature."
Patricia Halsall, Magpies

"Wow. I’ve literally just finished this book and I’m blown away by this action packed, adrenaline pumping and hair raising crime thriller."
educateempower.blog

"A tense and exciting thriller with a healthy dose of reality. It reads like a Jacqueline Wilson book, with a male protagonist, crossed with all of the coolest, gritty noir, crime novels you’ve ever read. It’s perfect for kids 10+ who love action."
Dani Solomon, readings.com.au

"I loved this tale and those in early secondary school will eat it up."
Fran Knight, ReadPlus
