Can you imagine how delighted I was to be asked to take part in this blog tour for All Fall Down By one of my favourite authors Mr Tom Bale. But I am more excited and over the moon to say I am kicking it off on publication day. So here is what I thought of Tom’s latest novel with a 5 star review. And you can grab your copy on the links below.
All Fall Down by Tom Bale
You tried to save a life. Now you’re fighting to save your own.
It’s the perfect Sunday. Summer sunshine, a barbecue with the kids.
But a knock on the garden gate and two words, ‘HELP ME’, changes everything.
When loving parents Rob and Wendy Turner let a dying man into their home, and do their best to help him, they think pure chance led him to their house. But soon their lives are threatened in ways they could never have imagined … and then the first anonymous letter arrives, forcing them to question all they know.
Someone is watching.
Someone is waiting.
They will stop at nothing.
Rob and Wendy will do anything to keep their family safe, but their children Georgia, Josh and Evan are teenagers now, with their own hidden lives.
Everyone has secrets, but how can you save your family, if you don’t really know them?
Publishing date: 1st September 2016
Well to be honest I'm finding it hard to put in words after feeling so traumatized...... I found myself shaking from the impact this book has had on me!!! Most of you know what a big fan I am of Tom Bale after reading See How they Run and I couldn't wait wait to get my hands on a copy of this. I honestly didn't think Tom could smash it again but he truly has….
Imagine having a family bbq and a dying man turns up uttering the words HELP ME well that's exactly what happens to the Turner family. Rob and Wendy Turner put it down to being in the wrong place at the wrong time having no idea who this man is.But in the days that follow their lives are threatened in ways they could never imagine. The Family is being watched by someone which they are unaware of.who will stop at nothing to fulfil their own twisted desires…….But when hidden secrets come rushing to the surface, it’s clear not everything is as it seems in this happy family. Are the Turners a victim of circumstance – or does the key to their fate lie closer to home?
The author tells us a story centered around a mature family which are easy to relate to, rather than a younger one like in his previous book. And also the fact that this family is far from perfect which makes them interesting.
All Fall Down starts off slightly slower paced than see how they run. With the author slowly drawing you in, rather than starting off with a bang. But once it picks up speed OMG does it pick up speed!!! my stomach started doing somersaults then I knew this was going to be a good story. But to leave me shaking, that's just something else, all I can say is you're in for a treat…...I absolutely loved it.
This is one hell of nail biting, gripping story that had me on tenterhooks, which I highly recommend giving it 5 stars.
Thank you to Kim Nash and Bookouture for an advanced reader's copy in exchange for a honest review.
About the author
Tom Bale decided that he wanted to be an author from the age of seven but, after another career got in the way, it wasn’t until much later that his dream was fulfilled. After several books with Random House, Tom signed with Bookouture for two stunning ‘everyman’ thrillers.
