You tried to save a life. Now you’re fighting to save your own.

It should have been an idyllic day for the Turner family – until a dying man, beaten beyond all recognition, arrives at their home, uttering the words, HELP ME.

Rob and Wendy Turner and their children try to explain away the horrific scene as being in the wrong place at the wrong time, but in the days that follow their lives are threatened in ways they could never imagine.

The family is unaware that they are being watched by someone with their own terrifying agenda, who will stop at nothing to fulfil their own twisted desires.

But when hidden secrets come rushing to the surface, it’s clear not everything is as it seems in this happy family. Are the Turners a victim of circumstance – or does the key to their fate lie closer to home?

Forced to fight for everything they hold dear, can they save themselves before time runs out – or will their act of compassion see them paying the ultimate price…?



I was eager to read this book as I'd simply devoured the author's previous book, See How They Run. This has a similar opening feeling as it starts with a family, just an ordinary family, whose world rapidly begins to unravel. 


Once the hidden secrets started coming and the story became more terrifying with every turn of my kindle page, I simply couldn't put it down! As with its predecessor, I read long into the night, my heart racing, until I reached the mindblowing conclusion.


With All Fall Down, Tom Bale has rightfully earned his place among the best thriller writers. I cannot wait to read his next book, but until then I'll be reading his back catalogue.
