AFTER SHE FELL MARY-JANE RILEY

Did she fall or was she pushed?

THERE ARE SO MANY WAYS TO FALL

Catriona needs help. Her seventeen-year-old daughter Elena was found dead at the bottom of the cliff near her boarding school. The death has been ruled a suicide, but Catriona isn’t convinced.

When her old friend, journalist Alex Devlin, arrives in Hallow’s Edge to investigate, she quickly finds that life at a private boarding school The Drift isn’t idyllic as the bucolic setting might suggest.

Amidst a culture of drug-taking, bullying and tension between school and village, no one is quite who they seem to be, and there are several people who might have wanted Elena to fall.

MY REVIEW

 

There are so many ways to fall. The daughter of a top politician took her own life after a history of depression and eating disorder. Cat Devonshire was described as an up and coming member of the European Parliament. The body of her seventeen-year-old daughter Elena Devonshire was found at the foot of cliffs in Hallow’s Edge, North Norfolk, close to the school where she was a pupil. Catriona Devonshire thinks that her daughter Elena was murdered. Cat’s old friend Alex Devlin arrives to investigate what really happened to Elena. Alex has her own problems her sister Sasha is in a secure unit, she had been responsible for drowning her own 4 -year-old twins. But Sasha believes she also murdered someone else. It is easy to imagine the characters as Mary Jane Riley has the gift to make her characters seem real-life.
