A detective with a unique gift, a tragic suicide and big city corruption - `The Fallen' is the stunning new thriller from the author of `The Blue Hour': `a great writer... he's amazing' Lee Child
What if you could tell someone was a killer just by looking at them?
Detective Robbie Brownlaw can. A six-storey plunge from a burning hotel leaves him with the usual broken bones - and something different. Synesthesia. The ability to see words and emotions as colours makes Robbie a human lie detector.
It's a condition that might have helped Garrett Asplundth. Hired to look into rumours surrounding a certain madam's Little Black Book, Garrett found a lot more than the usual round of losers and sad husbands. But the dirt came at a high price.
Now he's dead and it's only when Robbie gets hold of the book that he finds out just why Garrett was so curious - and why others will kill to get it back...
Jefferson Parker lives in Laguna Beach, California. When not working on his books, Parker spends his time with his family, hiking, hunting and fishing, and haunting the public tennis courts.
