Connor's plot is enthralling, his characters sharp and vital: FALLING is a compelling, intelligent thriller, placing everyday normality in dramatic relief against the horrific experiences of Sharpe and her colleagues.
The writing is skilled and the West Yorkshire background described with authority in a plot based on racial tensions and their explosive repercussions... not a comfortable reading but a gripping one
Enjoyably intricate and well-composed
A superb cast of characters, a gritty and appalling window into the race riots that took their toll on Bradford... and also with a crashing, blockbuster of an ending that sees justice meted out to those who deserve it the most.
A gritty, noirish series with a fantastic protagonist
A fast-paced, explosive thriller, which makes for a great read
Connor's moving up the ladder of police procedural mastery and in the brittle but determined cop Karen he has a secure pension
