Holly Krauss lives her life in the fast lane. A successful, happily married businesswoman, she is loved and admired by everyone she meets.

But that’s only one side of Holly. The other takes regular walks on the wild side and is making reckless mistakes.

When the two sides of Holly’s life collide, her world quickly spirals out of control. She thinks she’s being stalked, that someone is trying to extort money from her, and that threats lurk around every corner. Soon the people closest to her are running out of patience....

But are her fears due to paranoia and illness, or is the danger very, very real?

And if Holly’s judgment and mental health are not sound, who will catch her when she falls?

Listener Opinions

    " I wasted hours of my life reading this book. I feel as though the author could have thickened out the story a bit. It was my first Nicci French read and I wish I could get those hours back! Horrible I tell you! It was all plot after plot no resolution or too quick a resolution. If this was French's debut I would be more understanding but apparently it's the fourth book or something so there really is no excuse for such pathetic writing. I'm sorry to be so harsh but I really hated it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pbwritr | 2/11/2014

    " I thought it was a mystery, but it was a story about a manic-depressive and what happened to the lives she touched. Her behavior, before treatment, was appalling. Easy to see why her husband was tired of her. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Helen | 1/27/2014

    " Book club selection. It's not that it wasn't good, but it just wasn't my thing. Holly is one of those massively energetic life & soul of the party kind of people and appears to be burning the candle at both ends. She has a company with her best friend Meg, who's far more sensible and down to earth and ends up being the one who sorts the mess. Initially, I found Holly a very unappealing character. By the end, after a suicide attempt or two, she's come round a bit, but I found her hard to understand - probably as I'm more a Meg than a Holly. Turns into a strange mixture with psycological elements and some mystery solving. Not badly written, but just not something i would choose to read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Boof | 1/21/2014

    " Dreadful. Review to follow. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Darby | 1/17/2014

    " This book is about Holly Kraus who seems to live her life on the edge. But I felt the descriptions of what is going on with her mentally, emotionally and physically to be lacking. Although it made me feel frantic like Holly is suppose to feel because it never let me get to involved and then moved on to the next scene. I have felt all the books I have read by the author have left me feeling like I am missing huge chunks of the story and characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kendall | 1/14/2014

    " An interesting book. The slow, modulated march of its writing is extremely well done, pulling the reader along and building reluctance to put it down to attend to real life. Such mastery makes the thin plot and surprise ending a tad disappointing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meagan | 1/13/2014

    " This book was not my cup of tea.I have previously read Nicci French's novels and enjoyed them but I just didn't enjoy this one much at all. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Fareeha | 11/4/2013

    " A little anti-climatic and the ending/villian was obvious ! However, the idea was quite different ! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patty Villarreal | 10/31/2013

    " I liked it great read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margaret | 10/30/2013

    " Extremely readable view of life from the perspective of someone with mental illness. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaethe | 9/25/2013

    " Good grasp of bipolar disorder, as well as an interesting suspense novel. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Usha M | 9/7/2013

    " Catch Me When I Fall is so boring and pathetic. The authors seems to be on a contract with her publisher and is forced to generate a story once in a while. Even when she has nothing to say to the human being. The characters are hollow, the plot is made out of thin air. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 6/6/2013

    " Compulsive reading, soon finished despite being more that 200 pages. A fascinating account of what it is like living with bipolar disorder, the descent into madness - and how that can be exploited. A twist in the tale. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 An | 12/4/2012

    " Een slippertje met gevolgen "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Helen | 10/25/2012

    " Irritating main character with a predictable ending - I guessed who the attempted murderer was. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 George | 9/26/2012

    " Novel about a, probably bipolar, young woman who goes through a psychological collapse and how her best friend helps. There are relationship complications as well as the lead character's risky erratic behavior. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 9/23/2012

    " Holly is trying to hold it all together, but slowly losing control. Her freinds think she is becomming paranoid...but that does not mean someone is not out to get her. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lisa | 7/15/2012

    " I actually didn't bother finishing this book. I figured it was a bad sign that halfway through the book, I was rooting for the bad guys to get the hero... :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 3/29/2012

    " This two part novel deals with betrayals and suspicions, an illness, secrets, and how there's two parts of you that collide with a happy ending. It's two in two POVs. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kelly | 9/22/2011

    " With so much violence and unrealistic decisions...It is impossible to even care about the main character. Too much outlandish situations...waste of time. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cara | 9/1/2011

    " Could not get into this book, Did not like the main character and I lost interest in what happened to her. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Miss Kim | 7/20/2011

    " This was my first Nicci French book. I loved it. It is about a woman with a bi-polar disorder that basically has a secret life. She spirals out of control and could lose her marriage and her business. I couldn't put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Georgina | 11/10/2010

    " I SO love Nicci French, this husband and wife team never puts a foot wrong. Every book is suspenseful and draws me in from the first page. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Koen Dierckx | 10/2/2010

    " Niet lezen! Ben er mee gestopt na een 40-tal pagina's. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 8/8/2010

    " A really brilliant and clever read. Not so much a crime; more a journey of a manic depressant. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marloes | 8/1/2010

    " Not really my kind of book. "
