A gritty, heart-stopping crime thriller that will have you utterly obsessed.
We were told to meet at a rooftop bar.
Four friends, bound by one terrible secret.
No one knew why we were there.
Then we saw a woman, watched as she fell from the edge and plunged to her death.
The police think it's suicide, but I know better.
Someone is sending a message.
Now they're coming for us.

The characters - and potential suspects - introduced are interesting and compelling, with the background story original and disturbing. Without giving too much away, I felt the subject tackled in this novel deserves to be widely recognised and confronted. This layered plot considers a range of themes including homelessness, revenge and sexuality. By combining all of these strands, Merilyn Davies has produced a believable novel with realistic characters * Elementary V Watson *
Superbly written ... For me, If I Fall is an unputdownable, page turner of a read, that kept me guessing and kept me on the edge of my seat throughout ... I will certainly be reading more of Merilyn's work in the future * Ginger Book Geek *
'The darkness surrounding the two girls and their vulnerable hopelessness twanged at my heart strings...That the author is a former crime analyst gives the story an authentic, experienced and intelligent feel. Yet pleasingly there is not too much police jargon. There is a good sense of atmosphere along with time and place in both timelines...an excellent debut novel.' * Crime Review *
Gripping and authentic * Sunday Times Crime Club *
