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…?
This story started with knock…. but when Rob, who was enjoying a family BBQ heard the words Help Me, it ended very differently.
The man who uttered those words was covered in blood, stinking and very soon was going to die. Then Rob would find himself in a dilemma. The police had said the man was tortured and kept asking if Rob knew him.
Then Rob received a note.
T0m Bale is a fabulous storyteller. He gives the ‘view’ of what’s happening without letting the reader know what’s coming next.
I was totally gripped as to who the man was and why he ended up at Robs door.
It also has a tale within a tale.. telling you the facts but not really letting you ‘in’. It’s quite a guessing game which is rather part of the appeal.
All Fall Down is tense. Very Tense. I had no clue but when the end came…. I did Gasp, and I don’t do that very often. This novel is packed with tension. I got quite anxious reading it.
It is a tale that is adrenaline filled and I love how T0m’s writing has developed from his last offering See How They Run , which was a equally fabulous . He really is an author to watch out for.
Can you guess how much I Love T0m ?? Recommended read.
