Publisher's Summary

Tom Reed is a crime reporter with The San Francisco Star whose superb journalistic skills earned him a Pulitzer nomination. But years later Reed's life is coming apart. His editor wants him fired. His wife has left him to wrestle with his demons. Alone, Reed is tormented by the fear he may have caused the suicide of an innocent man suspected of murdering a two-year-old girl.

Reed's friend on the case is legendary San Francisco homicide inspector Walt Sydowski, who has one of California's highest clearance rates. He is also a lonely widower haunted by the fact he cannot solve the girl's heartbreaking death. Both men grapple with the past while they race the clock to learn the truth behind several new abductions that have anguished the Bay Area in this acclaimed thriller set in the late 1990s.

    "Great suspense thriller by an author I had ..."

    ...never heard of until Audible listener Shelley reviewed one of his books several weeks ago. This is the 5th novel by Rick Mofina I have listened to since. None have disappointed, or even come close!!

    If Angels Fall is the first novel in the journalist Tom Reed and cop Walt Sydowski series. It is the first novel released by author Rick Mofina (in the year 2000). Mofina demonstrates his ability to sustain and build suspense to an incredible intensity, and to tell a great story.

    Narrator Christian Rummel does a great job. For a man with a deep voice he is absolutely marvelous with the voices of women and children.

    I highly recommend this novel and this series as well as the novels in Mofina's Jason Wade series.

    "Good book but horrible topic"
    Would you listen to If Angels Fall  again? Why?

    No. It was a solid book. Christian Rummel is the usual Master of this kind of story. It is very slow to get you invested, but after 3 or 4 hours it finally does hook you. But I have looked at the topic's of the next 4 books in this series. What is the author's fascination with sexually and physically abusing children? That is messed up. I will have to seriously think about continuing. Maybe I will just skip book 2 (more likely). I can understand doing the topic if you had a good idea, but why dwell on it with 2 books?


    If you’ve listened to books by Rick Mofina before, how does this one compare?

    This is the first book I have listened to.


    What about Christian Rummel’s performance did you like?

    Chrisitan Rummel is in the top 3 Narrators out there along with Ray Porter, RC Bray. He is just a master of the craft and can even do decent voices so everything isn't in the same voice. When choosing a new book he is one of 5 authors that I click on and choose from their work because I know they don't do crappy books. I have never been disappointing with Rummel, Ray Porter (my favorite), RC Bray, Mark Boyett, or Scott Sigler (author and narrator of his own books).


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Nope, too long for 1 sitting.

    Story
    "a novel for fast-forward"

    The author creates tension by dragging out scenes nearly endlessly, letting the readers know what the characters do not to emphasize how readily this could all be cleared up if only people could understand things better . . . and graphically detailing the awful tings happening as a result of the inefficient floundering about of flawed characters entrusted with saving the innocents. I skipped ahead a lot. And the evil bad guy is so over the top that time spent with him is endless and redundant . . . and yes, such people have existed, but this guy is an overdrawn palimpsest.

    Tedious tension . . .

    "Where is the Christian Rummel from the Gold Coast?"

    I truly don't know how this book is > But I can't deal with Christian Rummels gruff voice or the way he is narrating the story in general.

    What happened the the Collins-Burke Rummel or the John Sutter Rummel.. I'm not saying they have to be the same voice - But the gruffness is over the top..

    I can't go on

    "first book in series"

    First let me say the narrator Christian Rummel is absolutely fantastic!! what a great job bringing all the characters to life! It made the book for me.
    The book, you really have to pay attention because there are a lot of side characters, but once you've established who the main characters are it's a great story. keeps you listening til the end!!
