Summary

Louise Alden learnt from a young age that you can't change the cards that life deals you; you just have to learn how to play the game. With money in her pocket and a new boyfriend at her side, life on the estate has never been better.

Until Louise uncovers a deadly secret; now nothing will ever be the same again.

Jerell Morgan was born evil. Even his Bible preaching grandma, who raised him back home in Kingston, Jamaica, couldn't drive away the wickedness that festered inside him as a child.

Now busy making a name for himself, Jerell is prepared to do whatever it takes to live the life that he has always dreamt of.

He is on the rise, and London doesn't know what's about to hit it.

beyond bloody fantastic

Would you listen to Rise and Fall again? Why?

Ive read the book and also listened to it on Audio .. Would listen to it again as its such a gripping story

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jamie was the Story what he became and what he had achieved

What does Anna Parker-Naples bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I was dubious about listening to story full stop but loved how Anna interpreted the story and will love to treat myself to an Audio more often

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Tyler at the park finding his voice

Any additional comments?

amazing story by Casey and i look forward to Bad Blood

Brilliant

What did you like most about Rise and Fall?

After reading this book a few years ago and loving it. I was thrilled when I got the chance to listen to it on Audio.
Not being sure what to expect, I took my phone and headphones, on a walk, then took it to work, then It ended up going everywhere with me.
It was funny as although I had read the book, with it being a few years ago, I had forgotten a lot of what happened, and found listening to this, interesting and exciting.
Many kindle books have the text to speach enabled, and if you have ever listened to it, you will know it sounds very robotic and hard to follow.
This is not the case witht he audio version, it was like having someone with a great soothing voice follow me around reading to me. Great for when you want to read, but haven't got the chance to sit down. I'm now listening to this for the 2nd time while i get stuck into my housework.

Which character – as performed by Anna Parker-Naples – was your favourite?

Anna did a fantastic job with all the Characters. her reading helped make it all believable.

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

You could easily listen to this in one sitting. Time allowing.

Any additional comments?

The audio book is brilliant and I would love to listen to more books in future.

Narrator let's this audiobook down

story was really good but kept getting lost each time the narrator attempted a Jamaican accent, it was just awful would have been better off not doing an accent at all... really let the story down as each time she did it all I could think was how bad it sounded and drifted from t
what was happening in the story... #Disappointed

Appalling Jamaican accent

Really enjoyed the story but I'm so disappointed with the ridiculous Jamaican accent. It reminded me of the offensive comedy mimics of the 1970's/80's.

Good book but....

The storyline was ok but that was the worst Jamaican accent I've ever heard. Sounded like a bad Chinese impersonation.

explicite story details uncomfortable

I don't like reading about boys getting raped, but continued the story to see how it concluded.
