The new novel from New York Times bestseller Dennis Lehane, author of Mystic River and Shutter Island

“Lehane is the master of complex human characters thrust into suspenseful, page-turning situations.” —Gillian Flynn

Since We Fell follows Rachel Childs, a former journalist who, after an on-air mental breakdown, now lives as a virtual shut-in. In all other respects, however, she enjoys an ideal life with an ideal husband. Until a chance encounter on a rainy afternoon causes that ideal life to fray. As does Rachel’s marriage. As does Rachel herself. Sucked into a conspiracy thick with deception, violence, and possibly madness, Rachel must find the strength within herself to conquer unimaginable fears and mind-altering truths. By turns heart- breaking, suspenseful, romantic, and sophisticated, Since We Fell is a novel of profound psychological insight and tension. It is Dennis Lehane at his very best.

  • Not worth the time

    By cpiceo
    This book was a boring disappointment. The story takes forever to get to the point and there is no ending. It just stops! Don’t bother.

  • Strange book

    By Dogma12345
    If the author had dropped the pretense of this book being a work of literature and concentrated on making it what it turned out to be, I would have enjoyed it.

    Dennis Lehane does it again with Since We Fell, his latest crime thriller, but this time through the eyes of a woman. Great summer read.
  • Not good

    By Andrealynnstuartfarris
    First few chapters were great! Then... I'm not sure what happened. Irritating Characters. Remarkably boring with a ridiculous ending.

  • Great Book

    By Dsg357
    As usual, Dennis Lebanese's masterful writing makes me wish the book would never end. Read this wonderful book in 24 hours.
  • Didn't seem like Lehane wrote this

    By winchey
    I have read almost all of Lehane's books and this one did not seem like it was written by him. Could have been so much better if there had actually been some character development.
