All Fall Down by Tom Bale

All Fall Down Cover


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…?

A heart-stopping, shocking and tense thriller that will keep you guessing to the very last page.


My Review – 5 stars

Slower-paced than his previous novel, See How They Run, which was breakneck speed.

This one builds slowly and steadily, learning as you go along about the members of the Turner family.

I wasn’t sure where to point the finger. Was it a coincidence that a badly injured man turned up in their garden?

Was the family targeted deliberately? I didn’t know what to think.

It kept me guessing as different aspects of the family members lives were thrown in the mix.

I had suspicions about everyone!

Apart from the family there were some goddam awful characters, expertly written to make you dislike them intensely. It make me shudder to think there are such individuals in the real world.

Some fantastic scenes, gruesome too. I could visualise them so well.

See How They Run still remains my favourite book of the year so far.

Thanks to the publishers Bookouture, and NetGalley for the copy.
