The Boy Who Fell: A gripping mystery thriller you won't be able to put down (An Inspector Tom Reynolds Mystery Book 5)

Jo Spain

8 Reviews

Rated 0

An Inspector Tom Reynold, Crime & mystery

From the bestselling author of With Our Blessing and The Confession comes a gripping investigative thriller of class, privilege and revenge.

Kids can be so cruel.
They'll call you names.
Hurt your feelings.
Push you to your death.

In the garden of an abandoned house, Luke Connolly lies broken, dead. The night before, he and his friends partied inside. Nobody fought, everybody else went home safely. And yet, Luke was raped and pushed to his death. His alleged attacker is now in custody.

DCI Tom Reynolds is receiving the biggest promotion of his career when a colleague asks him to look at the Connolly case, believing it's not as cut and dried as local investigators have made out. And as Tom begins to examine the world Connolly and his upper class friends inhabited, the privilege and protection afforded to them, he too realises something.

In this place, people cover up for each other. Even when it comes to murder.
