BOOK REVIEW


The fourth novel of John Connor’s Karen Sharpe series, Falling, is a clear underlining of the author’s growing reputation of being a master storyteller.

 


Karen Sharpe of the West Yorkshire Police is investigating a seemingly random murder during a burglary and a frenzied attack on a model. Suspecting a racial motivation to both crimes and with race relations at breaking point, Karen is going through her own personal meltdown as her past threatens to catch up with her.

Clear, precise and very, very dark, Falling is a compelling read that takes the reader on an emotional journey during which we may not exactly grow to like Karen Sharpe but we do, nonetheless, grow to understand her.

Cut the bone prose make the story rattle along with barely space left over to catch ones breath, whereas the gritty realism that the book invokes means the sights, smells and sounds of the setting are brought out in vivid colour.

Totally absorbing, Falling is a great read and a testament to John Connor’s immense skills as a writer of some considerable worth.
