Publisher's Summary

Winner of the 2017 Edgar Award for Best Novel.
Selected by The Sunday Times as one of the top page-turners of summer 2017.
From the creator of the award winning Fargo and Legion TV series.
The rich are different. But fate is blind. A private jet plunges into the sea. The only survivors are down-on his luck artist Scott Burroughs and JJ Bateman, the four-year-old son of a super-rich TV executive. For saving the boy, Scott is suddenly a hero. And then, as the official investigation is rapidly overtaken by a media frenzy, it seems he may also be a villain. Why was he on the plane in the first place, and why did it crash?

Best book I have listened to, if not ever, then a very long time👍👍

Really enjoyed this booked and a bit of a cliche, but “couldn’t stop listening until I had finished”.
Narrated very well, and a great story. Have already recommended to my friends👍😀

Loved it but difficult to listen to

If you could sum up Before the Fall in three words, what would they be?

Loved the storyline but really struggled with the narrator.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Before the Fall?

When JJ spoke with Scott for the first time after the accident.

What three words best describe Jeff Harding’s performance?

Unaffected. Frustrating. Difficult.

Any additional comments?

The story line was great,though a bit frustrated with the end. Would have liked a bit more closure. Apart from the narration, it was good.
