Catch Me When I Fall is a chilling novel of murder, madness and a woman on the edge from the Top Ten bestselling author, Nicci French
You're a whirlwind. A success. You're living life on the edge. But who'll catch you when you fall?
Holly Krauss is a city girl burning the candle at both ends. Despite a comfortable home life, a tough job and friends who admire her, she secretly enjoys taking reckless, dangerous walks on the wild side.
But Holly can't keep those worlds separate forever. Soon enough her secret life bleeds into her safe one and everything spirals out of control. She's making mistakes at home and at work, owes money to the wrong people - and now it seems that someone's stalking her. Could it just be paranoia or is she in very real danger?
And who can you trust when you can no longer trust yourself?

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.
