A beautiful young woman is dead, her husband convicted of the murder. In seeking a new trial for the husband, defense attorney Victor Carl must confront not only a determined prosecutor and a police detective who might have set up his client, but also a strange little busybody named Bob.

Bob has the aspiration, one could even say compulsion, to help those around him. And it usually works out well for all concerned, except when it ends in blood. But Victor doesn't know that...yet.

Thanks to Bob, Victor is suddenly dressing better, dating a stunning woman, and his economic prospects and teeth are both gleaming. It's all good, until Victor finds a troubling connection between Bob and the murdered wife. Is Bob a kind of saint or is this obsessive Good Samaritan in reality a murderer?

Filled with the keen wit, deep poignancy, twisting suspense, and dark realism that has entranced readers, impressed reviewers, and made William Lashner's previous novels best sellers, Falls the Shadow is a riveting novel that is sure to leave readers eager for more.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brigid | 5/5/2013

    " As far as mass market mystery thrillers go, Lashner is pretty darn good. I liked the ending of this one- not the usual "bad guys pay the price" melodrama. "

    " Good book. This is the first book I've read by William Lashner, but I will be looking for more. Very entertaining. "

    " By far the best of a great series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pa | 7/25/2012

    " A fairly interesting murder mystery involving a wise-cracking defense attorney, an enigmatic do=gooder dentist and several other rather strange characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beverly | 4/10/2012

    " Fifth in the Victor Carl series of lawyer mysteries. Very fun, like a denser Robert B. Parker without the tough guy acr; multipart plot. Was described as a "cross between Raymond Chandler and Chandler Bing". Good description. This story features a mad dentist. Some affectionate hard-boiled satire. "

    " It was alright. I liked the voice of Victor Carl throughout this and when I started it, I didn't realise it was part of a series so I might go back and see what the other editions bring. Not epic and not astoundingly well written, but it was fun. "
