Summary

On a Tuesday in May, in her 35th year, Rachel shot her husband dead. He stumbled backward with an odd look of confirmation on his face, as if some part of him had always known she'd do it.

Rachel's husband adores her. When she hit rock bottom, he was there with her every step of the way as she slowly regained her confidence, and her sanity. But his mysterious behaviour forces her to probe for the truth about her beloved husband.

How can she feel certain that she ever knew him?

And was she right to ever trust him?

Bringing together Dennis Lehane's trademark insightful and empathetic characterisation, razor-sharp dialogue, stunning atmosphere and breakneck twists and turns, Since We Fell is a true masterpiece that will keep you in suspense until the very end.

Enjoyed every bit of this except the end!

Any additional comments?

Terrific book. Loved the twists and turns. Really enjoyed his development of the main character. And her husband - what a sneeky man! Couldn't figure out how it was going to end and I don't think the author really did either. Overall though, totally worth a read.

Gave up

I have never given up on a book before but when the main character said, 'Check your privilege!!' to another character with the overdramatic way the reader had, I had to stop wasting my time. It was from child, to shut in, to spy, to ...... then I gave up as it was so unbelievable.

I don't suggest anybody bothers with this one. Sorry.

Skip this one

Found this boring and disjointed. Sometimes I felt I'd missed whole chapters, but hadn't. Really struggled to finish the book. Perservered and didn't understand what the take home message was.
