What to expect

Brought to you by Penguin.

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.

Listen to a sample

This fast-paced, authentic thriller – written by an ex-crime analyst – immerses you so deeply in the investigation, you’ll be desperate to get to the bottom of the case.

Crime Monthly Magazine

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

Gripping and authentic

Sunday Times Crime Club

‘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

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
