Kimberley was a beautiful young girl with the world at her feet. Before she fell. Before she was gone.

When Kimberley Williams jumps off Southdown Cliff, her family and the close-knit community are shocked. What would make her take her own life when she had so much of it left to live?

Detective Anna Gwynne is assigned to the case after it becomes clear that someone made Kimberley jump. Someone had been sending Kimberley messages, saying they would tell everyone her secret…

Then Anna realises there are others, all being sent the same messages, all with their lives at risk. To find the truth she will have to confront her own past, the lies she’s told about her childhood and the demons hidden there…

Can she save these innocent lives?

What is the secret they’re all dying for?

An absolutely gripping thriller that will hook you from beginning to end. If you love Val McDermid, Angela Marsons and Robert Dugoni, you won’t be able to put down Before She Falls.

So I made a booboo, I was a cover hoe, and I signed up for the tour without realising this was the 3rd book in the series! I like to keep it interesting! So now, all I have done is added more books to the ever-growing TBR list! But it was ok to read as a standalone – Phew!!!! And I have found a new author that I want to read more of (Noelle!!!!!!!!)

This book kept me gripped and I had a little crush on Anne! She is badass, she is up there with Jenna Alton from D.K Hood’s series! 

The book deals with teenage suicide, all due to a new phase of deadly games on the big world wide web. More bloody trouble then it is worth sometimes! These poor teenagers, vulnerable teenagers being groomed. Groomed to take part in the “Black Squid” game! The internet is a dangerous place, and this book amplifies this. 

Why did Kimberley jump????

Detective Anne Gwynne has to dig down deep in this case, she has to try and prevent this from happening to anymore, but will she work with the one person she really REALLY does not want to! Hector Shaw. This name means soemthing to people who have read the other books! To me, it didn’t but it does now! Chills! 

This book is dark, gripping and tension is palpable. It is a fresh plot and I feel like I know Anne and her team. This book twists and turns, and don’t forget the red herrings! All this makes the book so addictive, I was turning the pages furiously with the need to make sure no one else gets hurt!!!

I can’t wait to pick up the first two books, and to catch up and see where Detective Anne Gwynne go in the future!

About Dylan Young

Dylan Young grew up in a mining village in South Wales before boarding a train for university in London. A career in the NHS followed, but the urge to write never went away. Three dark psychological thrillers for Random House emerged in the late nineties, two of which were made into BBC films. Over the last decade, under different pseudonyms, he’s written children’s books and an adult contemporary fantasy series. But his liking for crime (writing) never died. Book 1 in the Detective Anne Gwynne crime thriller series, The Silent Girls, and Book 2, Blood Runs Cold, are available now.
