A search for missing documents in an international mining company becomes a voyage into dangerous waters. A dead friend, a lost lover, and a clutch of mysteries from Jonathan Kellaway's youth in Cornwall and Italy in the late 1960s come back to haunt him when he is tasked with discovering why there is a gaping hole in his employer's records - and to tempt him with the hope that he may at last learn the truth about the tragedies of those years. It is a truth that has claimed several victims before. If he pursues it hard and long enough, he may only add himself to the list. But pursue it he will. Because the truth, he comes to realize, is the secret that has consumed his life. This time he will not stop until he has found it.

    " As always, Robert Goddard gives us a beautifully written and intriguing tale. Fault Line begins in Cornwall, a favourite setting, amongst the china clay pits. |Jonathan Kellaway is on the verge of retiring form a huge international China Clay company when he is obliged to search for missing documents that appear stolen from the old records but that prove a vital link to many family secrets of the firm's founders. RG is one of those story tellers whose work grips one from start to finish - such a delight especially on a rainy day in the UK. Some people feel RG has begun to write similiar stories but I never feel this to be the case. He often writes in the first person and yes, the hero does have a similiar feel about him perhaps because of this? Often a man who has strong principles but is inveigled into all kinds of strange and twisted situations despite himself. But so what...the plots are all different and we visit a great many countries in R G stories all described in amazing detail. He's either got some great guide books or is a great traveller! "

    " 4.5, really. A great read, just love these mystery books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 1/18/2014

    " Not too many characters in this book so an easy read "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jane Walker | 1/14/2014

    " A convoluted story with zero tension. I am bemused by the reviews on the back of the jacket; were they reading the same book? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenda Hawley | 1/11/2014

    " If you like a twisting,turning plot with suspense that goes until the last page, then Robert Goddard should be on your To Read list. I have read all of his many novels and this is his latest: each has a tightly woven plot with so many blind turns you might get dizzy, interesting, realistic situations, characters who are out of their league in some bizarre scenario that keeps you turning the pages. This book is about an unsolved suicide/murder and the repercussions of ambition, love, time and greed. From Capri to the Cornish clay pits this story is what fun fiction is all about: escape and life lessons. Wait until you see what young goddess Vivien is like in her 60s and how our hero looks back on his reckless youth. A great read@ "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liana | 1/7/2014

    " A good yarn, typical of Robert Goddard. It flipped back between the present day and earlier times in the lives of the main characters, which I always find interesting in a novel. Worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kirsty Brown | 1/6/2014

    " Excellent story; great ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristyh | 1/6/2014

    " I love Robert Goddard, and I thought Fault Line was one of his best. I love his reluctant and run of the mill heroes. Their stiff upper lippedness is wonderful. The ending was superb. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane Wilcox | 1/5/2014

    " Really enjoyed all the plot twists and turns that Goddard is famous for. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen wadey | 12/7/2013

    " As always Robert Goddard does a good mystery tale, very enjoyable!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michele | 12/6/2013

    " Goddard's back on top form with 'Fault Line' - a gripping, twisty tale that bounces back and forth through one man's history with ease and aplomb. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea Susan | 11/21/2013

    " Robert Goddard never fails to write intriguing story lines. I am always recommending his books to friends and so he has a few more fans. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marion Anderson | 11/17/2013

    " An excellent read with a slightly weak ending "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mekerei | 10/19/2013

    " Young love, a couple of suicides, a crazy brother and a mystery; makes for another great story by Goddard. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol Kerry-green | 10/16/2013

    " Good settings, characters etc., but the 'big secret' was a disappointment. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally-W | 9/15/2013

    " Goddard as we know and love him - a fast-paced tale of love, loyalty and betrayal...and the odd secret or two. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samantha Bragg | 9/11/2013

    " Perhaps a little slow at times, not gripping exactly, but a different approach and a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanne Steventon | 6/28/2013

    " Entertaining page turner but not the best Goddard to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eeeby | 6/20/2013

    " Another classic story from the Goddard Collection. Utterly compelling from start to finish and a little twist in the tale at the ending. Worth the 4 star rating this book does not disappoint. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debra Morris | 2/24/2013

    " Another great twisty,dark Goddard mystery. Great insight into family psychology. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ernst Nieuwoudt | 2/13/2013

    " Typical Robert Goddard, events from the past intertwined with and shaping the present. As always a great read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn Fordred | 2/3/2013

    " Loving it hard to put down "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joanne | 1/28/2013

    " Ho-hum. Young man stumbles into family mystery in the 60s, falls in love with girl, goes to work for her stepfather, has to revisit family mystery at the end of his career, when All Is Revealed. Just not very interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bobby | 11/11/2012

    " One of my very favorite authors -- I've loved just about every one of his books. And this was yet another terrific read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Conrad Toft | 9/23/2012

    " A curious book, which seemed to meander along without giving any indication of where it was going for quite some time, but with thoroughly enjoyable characters and an interesting combination of whodunnit and economic mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael Kotsarinis | 9/8/2012

    " Actually I 'd give it 3.5 if possible. Nice story, full of events and enough depth. Very satisfactory pace, not rushing things, not idling either. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Francesca | 9/6/2012

    " slow paced, mild thriller "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth Moffat | 9/4/2012

    " My first Robert Goddard book and it gets three and a half stars. The plot was very interesting and complex at times in the way it was weaved. Good characterisation and a decent little twist at the end means I will definitely try another of his books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 7/26/2012

    " This is one of Robert Goddards better books. He is such a good story teller but sometimes you feel that the tale has got too tortuous for it's own good. This one had just the right amount of mystery and action to keep you totally hooked right to the end. I really liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna Irwin | 7/13/2012

    " This was much better than some of the authors recent books, enjoyed the twists and turns -but the ending was just a little weak. "
