Love hurts. FBI agent Kelly Feinman knows this is true. While she is recovering from an attack by a serial killer called the Acid Man, her husband leaves her. Physically and emotionally scarred by the murderer, Kelly feels she will never be the same. She is cut off not only from her husband and child, but also from her fellow FBI agents, who see her as a rogue for going after the Acid Man alone.

Love is hell. Matt Connor knows this is true. His love for his girlfriend, Amy, is so intense that he feels he is in heaven when he is with her. When Amy leaves him for another man, Matt is shattered. In agony, he plans a diabolical scheme that first calls for him to disappear from the face of the earth. His revenge will make Amy wish she had never been born.

Love can heal. Matt's act of vengeance puts him in charge of Amy's infant son. He discovers a soothing warmth in Jimmy's eyes that makes him wonder if Amy's betrayal truly merited wrecking the child's life. Yet Matt's heart cannot be made whole until he has won Amy back.

Kelly cannot be made whole until she understands the depth of evil that lurks behind the Acid Man. Ironically, to rid herself and the world of her nemesis, she must seek out Matt Connor, a wanted man she has been ordered to bring to justice.

In Falling, Christopher Pike explores the depth and breadth of human emotion through two brilliantly etched characters: Kelly Feinman, who pays a terrible price to understand the nature of true evil, and Matt Connor, a classic antihero who captures the listener's sympathy. The listener is drawn deeply into the hearts and minds of these two people, who almost against our will force us to face our deepest fears. It is that power that makes Falling impossible to forget.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gigi | 2/14/2014

    " What a thrill ride!! This book was described as literary crack cocaine and it's true! I was hooked from the beginning and felt withdrawls whenever I had to put it down. Great read!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maddi | 2/7/2014

    " Christopher Pike is my favorite author. He did mainly teen novels, but he also has some adult novels and this one is BY FAR his best adult novel and probably one of my favorite books ever. There are a few stories intertwined and I love when books/movies do that. It is a page turner to the end and I didn't want to put it down. It has some elements of horror, so could be a little scary at night by yourself (but Pike is good at that). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nilanjona | 2/2/2014

    " Pike's first adult novel I read (I used to read his YA ones back in the day) and I absolutely loved it. Suspenseful story mixed with mythology. Two plot lines that eventually come together. A must read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Pottenger | 1/30/2014

    " Freaky and twisted, but loads of unpredictability. Lots of unexpected twists and turns. Some rather naughty bits, though. "

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

    " Kept me reading, but I didn't really like the two main characters and there were many moments when characters did things that made no sense. I've heard good things about Christopher Pike, so I haven't given up, but this was a bit disappointing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenn | 1/12/2014

    " Loved his books as a teen. This one didn't affect me quite the same way. It was fun to read but not very original or surprising. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie Godelfer | 11/20/2013

    " I didn't have any expectations at all for this book...I just needed an audiobook for a long drive. I was surprised! I really liked this one & would recommend it. It's a bit twisted and the ending left me wanting a bit more but overall- it's a good one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tholdampf | 8/12/2013

    " My favorite quote about this one was "literary crack cocaine" I finished it in less than two days "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kyrsten | 6/6/2013

    " I REALLY did not like this book - Pike is on of my favorite Authors & has been for almost 15 years, but this book seemed pointless. It's not a long read, but one I did regret wasting my time on. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rose | 3/21/2013

    " I'm not sure if I liked this book or not. The ending was icky and left a sour taste in my mouth. I don't believe that either of the main characters would truly find peace after what they did. I really thought the story was captivating though. Just depressing and sad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jess | 1/2/2013

    " Whoever at Kirkus Reviews said this book was like "literary crack cocaine" must have been smoking the pipe themselves. The text was choppy, the characters unsympathetic, there was no point to the book, the ending sucked and the violence was creepy. Yuck, yuck, yuck. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Audrey | 11/18/2012

    " One of my favorite authors. Some stuff is brilliant, some is just bizarre. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kayla | 3/14/2012

    " Although I found myself bored in the first few chapters, this book took an interesting turn. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mandie Roerig dyer | 3/11/2012

    " I read this one because he was my favorite author as a kid. It draws you in and keeps your attention throughout. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicolle | 1/23/2012

    " i have loved christopher pike since jr. high, but this isn't one of my favorites. decently entertaining but i guess i couldn't get into the characters because they just seemed so creepily obsessive. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 11/15/2011

    " Wasn't really sure how everything would come together.. But enjoyed this one! "

    " i loved this book!!! amazing story. kept me on the edge of seat the entire time. if you like stories about catching serial killers, you'll enjoy this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bridget | 9/12/2011

    " More along the lines of a FBI mystery/thriller with none of the supernatural stuff. Still a tightly woven engaging story told from two relatable perspectives that keeps you guessing till the very end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cari Allen | 7/15/2011

    " Truly an amazing story. Definitely one of his best books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 erin | 6/24/2011

    " Weird. Very weird. Somewhere between 3 and 4 stars. I didn't love it, I didn't hate it. I like the twists but wanted to beat both main characters with a reality bat. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Phil | 6/11/2011

    " WOW! A very clever thriller, so many twists and turns. Could not put it down! A must read for Pike fans, and everyone else for that matter! "
