Description:

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

A good cop, Robbie Brownlaw was thrown from a sixth-floor window of a downtown hotel and miraculously survived. The traumatic incident left Robbie with a fast-track career in the San Diego P.D.'s Homicide division . . . and a rare neurological condition that enables him to see people's emotional words as colored shapes—green trapezoids of envy, red squares of deception . . .

Another good man lies dead in a blood-splattered Ford Explorer—an ex-cop-turned-ethics investigator whose private life was torn open by unthinkable tragedy. Whether Garrett Asplundh's death was suicide or murder isn't immediately apparent—but it's soon clear to Robbie and his smart, tough partner, McKenzie Cortez, that Garrett had hard evidence of sex, scandal, and corruption spreading deep into local government. But pursuing the truth could prove more emotionally devastating than Robbie ever imagined.

About the Author:

Jefferson Parker (known as T Jefferson Parker in the States) was born in LA in 1953. He worked as a newspaper journalist in California, covering the crime beat, where his novels all reflect the sunny wickedness of his home state.

He is the author of twelve novels; both ‘Silent Joe’ and ‘California Girl’ won the prestigious Edgar award (the equivalent of our CWA Gold Dagger). His latest novel, set in San Diego, features a detective with synaesthesia. ‘The Fallen’ is published in hardback in May 2006.

Jefferson lives in Laguna Beach, California. When not working on his books, he spends his time with his family, hiking, hunting and fishing, and haunting the public tennis courts.
