Suspense Saturday with All Fall Down

Written by Tom Bale
September 1, 2016; 359 Pages
Genre: suspense, thriller, mystery 

(I received an ARC from the NETGALLEY in exchange for an honest review.)

 At a Turner family barbecue a man stumbles onto their property, bloody and barely alive.  After the man dies the police start to investigate.  The Turner family has some secrets - some that may be on the dangerous side.  Could this dead man be tied to one of the Turners? And can they keep themselves from being the next victim?

I read great reviews on Bale's previous novel, See How They Run, so I was happy to request and review this suspense novel.  I thought the novel was okay and the suspense kept me going...the pace was a bit slow and the characters seemed to have no personal traits.  (ie: the names seem to be the only difference between characters).  And by the end I just wanted to see where it was all going I almost missed how neat and quickly it was all tied up.  I read some other reviews on this book - more good than bad - I saw one familiar pharse "not as good as See How They Run".  While I did not exactly enjoy this novel I am definitely down for his previous book before making any judgements.  I would tell readers if you cannot get into this book, I would pass on it as my feelings never changed from page 10 to 300.
