Publisher's Summary

It is summer 2012. Charlie, a wealthy banker with an uneasy conscience, invites his troubled cousin, Matthew, to visit him and his wife in their idyllic mountaintop house. As the days grow hotter, the friendship between the three begins to reveal its fault lines, and with the arrival of a fourth character, the household finds itself suddenly in the grip of uncontrollable passions.
As listeners of James Lasdun's acclaimed fiction can expect, The Fall Guy is a complex moral tale as well as a gripping suspense story, probing questions of guilt and betrayal with ruthless incisiveness. Who is the real victim here? Who is the perpetrator? And who, ultimately, is the fall guy?
Darkly vivid, with an atmosphere of erotic danger, The Fall Guy is Lasdun's most entertaining novel yet.

Atrocious british accent

The story is good, as is the narrator. That is until he attempts the accent of one of the main characters who is British. I could not finish the book.

Not well written

I'm not understanding why Audible promoted this book. It is totally flat, with banal prose and one- dimensional characters. Kept listening because I was curious to see whether it would ever get interesting.
