Be careful who you trust. It just might be the death of you...

Holly Krauss lives in the fast lane. A successful young businesswoman with a stable home life, she is loved and admired by all who meet her. But that's only one side of Holly. The other sees her take regular walks on the wild side, where she makes ever-more-reckless mistakes. And when those mistakes start mounting, the two sides of Holly blur, and her life spins out of control. She thinks she's being stalked, someone is demanding money from her, threats lurk around every corner—and those closest to Holly are running out of patience. But is she alone responsible for what's happening? Are her fears just the paranoia of an illness or intimations of very real danger? And if she can no longer rely on her own judgment, who can she trust to catch her when she falls?

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A compelling examination of mental illness... I'm a big fan of Nicci French. (For those of you who don't know- Nicci French is actually the married couple Nicci Gerrard and Sean French.) I first discovered them with the book Killing Me Softly, which I absolutely loved. Since then I have read several more of their books, plus two others written by Nicci Gerrard on her own. So- I am a fan. Together as Nicci French, they write a really great sort of psychological fiction- filled with menace and surprises and shadowy figures. Page-turners. Catch Me When I Fall was unlike any French book I'd read before. It tells the story of Holly Krauss, this wildly confident career woman who lives in London with her husband, Charlie, a graphic artist. When we first meet Holly we think she might be merely reckless, but it turns out her behaviour is more complicated than that. Her husband and her best friend and business partner, Meg, watch helplessly as Holly's behaviour becomes more and more bizarre and self-destructive. As an examination of mental illness, this is a compelling read. But that's not the only thing French has up for grabs in this book. It isn't my favourite French book- but I enjoyed it just the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gripping You get hooked, from page 1. Sharp, incisive writing makes you understand what goes into Holly's mind and what goes wrong. I could not stop reading this book : one of the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gripping Very well written story. The suspense is there, but what is fascinating is the turmoil in Holly's mind and her inability to get back on track. You come to understand how a stupid one-night stand can wreck her life. You can also see how her relationship with her husband evolves, as a consequence of her mistakes. Absolutely fascinating. I could not put this book down until I read the last page. One of the best books I recently read.
