Our giveaway shifts from Pamela Samuels Young’s riveting legal thriller FAILURE TO PROTECT to an island of sin — but not the kind you think — in Rachel Howzell Hall’s THEY ALL FALL DOWN.
Miriam Macy isn’t going to say no to a surprise invitation to a reality TV show, not when the party’s at a luxurious private island off the Mexico coast. The other guests include an ex-cop, a chef, a financial advisor, a nurse, a lawyer, a young widow — all strangers. But it turns out the game isn’t a game and everyone present — Miriam included — harbor terrible secrets.
A contemporary take on an Agatha Christie classic, the standalone is a break from her Los Angeles homicide detective Elouise “Lou” Norton. Hall generously offered up another book,
AND NOW SHE’S GONE (a finalist in the LA Times’ Book Prize and an Amazon.com Best Books of the Year) earlier this year.
The LA native will be on the panel Police Procedurals 2021: Social Justice and the Pandemic with Faye Snowden, Ausma Kahn, Isabella Maldonado and moderator Jessica Kaye.
