This week my teaser comes from All Fall Down by Tom Bale which is a standalone suspense / thriller. I have heard a lot of good reviews for this book and so far it is living up to the expectations!
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley.
There are no spoilers in the teaser.
Everything about they conversation yesterday had been a lie; just part of the plan to get close to her and her family, and find out more about the holiday.
She was lying flat, her arms stretched out like two points of a star, chained at the wrists to the top of the bedframe.

You tried to save a life. Now you’re fighting to save your own.
It should have been an idyllic day for the Turner family – until a dying man, beaten beyond all recognition, arrives at their home, uttering the words, HELP ME.
Rob and Wendy Turner and their children try to explain away the horrific scene as being in the wrong place at the wrong time, but in the days that follow their lives are threatened in ways they could never imagine.
The family is unaware that they are being watched by someone with their own terrifying agenda, who will stop at nothing to fulfil their own twisted desires.
But when hidden secrets come rushing to the surface, it’s clear not everything is as it seems in this happy family. Are the Turners a victim of circumstance – or does the key to their fate lie closer to home?
Forced to fight for everything they hold dear, can they save themselves before time runs out – or will their act of compassion see them paying the ultimate price…?
Happy reading everyone.
