An intense, feverish novel, with riveting plot twists. The ending is startling, unexpected, but convincing.-- "Sara Paretsky, New York Times bestselling author"
Hall slips from funny to darkly frightening with elegant ease.-- "Publishers Weekly"
The twists start from page one and never let up.-- "James Patterson, #1 New York Times bestselling author"
Laugh-out-loud funny one minute, bone-chilling and sinister the next, it's a page-turning exploration of what happens when our shadow selves are allowed to run amok.-- "Attica Locke, author of Black Water Rising"
A devilishly clever mystery...Hall's writing sizzles and pops. Miriam Macy is unforgettable.-- "Meg Gardiner, author of Into the Black Nowhere"

First off, And Then There Were None is my favorite novel. And I thought They All Fall Down was a clever homage to the original. I actually preferred the underlying theme of They All Fall Down moreso than the underlying theme in the original And Then There Were None.
I also loved the *feel* of the book. I think the atmosphere in They All Fall Down really gives you the sense that all the characters are in purgatory and are being haunted by their past. A feeling that one could sense the original And Then There Were None was aiming for but fell short of.
In terms of characters, I was very invested in what happened to a majority of the characters. They were unique and flawed and I loved it. I will admit the heteronormative males were not very interesting or memorable, I didn't particularly care what happened to any of them. But I was heavily invested in the main character and really felt for her.
The only disappointment was that there was no wig snatching in the finale ;). I can only hope that wig snatching was a part of the first draft. Whether intentional or not, I did appreciate the gay pop culture references that are hidden within the book.
Looking forward to reading more from this writer! :)
When the book starts she is on Valium due to post traumatic stress disorder for fighting with her ex and his new woman and her actions on behalf of her daughter.
Her 17 year old daughter knows she is on a reality TV show in Mexico and supports her father in his choice of new woman, her dance instructor.
My first question is why go on a tv show when you are neck deep in drama already. The stalking was enough
Boarding the yacht, Macy sizes up her fellow passengers. “A sick man. A country chick. A shaggy nurse. A cokehead cook. An uppity banker. And a mass shooter. My competition, ladies and gentleman.”
Then Miriam Macy takes her paranoia to the island and trips off ecerything. They are in Mexico - and
When theyI realized it was a funeral I would have tried to leave. This book should have told the story from other perspectives too.
I was confused by the news reports throughout the book until the end of the book after Philip’s letter.
The cover was puzzling until the end of the book also. I know Miriam coveted that scarf but it floating in the water made sense now.
If the ending had been more believable (can’t say more, don’t want to ruin it) and the characters a wee bit less one-sided, this could have easily been 4-5 stars. The snappy dialogue, the interplay of the characters, the thrill of a psychological mystery were all there and definitely kept me reading, but that ending....it was like a meal in a 3-star restaurant that ended with off-the-shelf, no-name chocolate chip cookies. And no milk.
Thankfully it's a quick read, but I'd give it a pass.
