MJ Arlidge: All Fall Down

Today I’m pleased to be taking part in the blog tour for All Fall Down. My review is written with thanks to Tracy Fenton for inviting me on the tour and for my copy of the book via the publisher.


“You have one hour to live”

Those are the only words on the phone call. Then they hang up. Surely, a prank? A mistake? A wrong number? Anything but the chilling truth… That someone is watching, waiting, working to take your life in one hour.

But why?

The job of finding out falls to DI Helen Grace: a woman with a track record in hunting killers. However, this is A case where the killer seems to always be one step ahead of the police and the victims.

With no motive, no leads, no clues – nothing but pure fear – an hour can last a lifetime…


The DI Helen Grace series is one of my favourite series and All Fall Down is a brilliant addition to it. I love the way Helen and the majority of her team work well together. There is some tension between Helen and the most recent recruit, DS Joseph Hudson, but I enjoyed the way this allowed us to see a different side to Helen throughout the novel.

The methods employed by the perpetrator in All Fall Down are inventive, and I would have definitely been scared in the same position. This allows the tension to rise, and the fast pace of the novel meant that I was compelled to keep reading.

All Fall Down is set across Southampton and the sense of place is brilliant. The victims, suspects and witnesses are located in different areas of the city and this adds to the thrill of the chase. Although I am not familiar with Southampton I was still able to picture the setting clearly in my mind.

There are a few twists as the novel reaches it’s conclusion which provide an exciting ending to this heart-stopping ride

All Fall Down is available from Amazon.
