FBI agent Cameron Daggett has for years been on the trail of an international triggerman responsible for planting at least two nearly undetectable explosive devices on airplanes. When a strange murder takes place in a Seattle aircraft training installation, Daggett suspects that his nemesis is involved. The man who was murdered was a specialist in training pilots to fly the Duhning 959-600 — a new breed of ultra-sophisticated aircraft — and he was killed in a Duhning flight simulator. Was the killer trying to be taught to pilot one of these super jets? How is this connected to Daggett's recent discovery of sophisticated altitude detonators? Is Anthony Kort — Daggett's prey — about to strike again? Using the most intricate and complex forensic techniques, the aerodynamic and technical principles that make monster jets stay aloft, and sheer cop's reasoning — Daggett picks up Kort's trail. He is joined by forensic experts, aerodynamic engineers, and criminal psychologists — but it comes down to Daggett and Daggett alone to see the pattern in the seemingly endless technical detail, and stop a tragedy before it takes place. But Kort is smart, and driven by a motivation that Daggett cannot possibly understand. And when Daggett gets close, Kort makes it personal. Hard Fall is a breathlessly paced thriller, an intellectual and technical game of cat and mouse, and a modern classic of suspense fiction. Download and start listening now!

    " Pearson is one of my favorite authors, but this is not one of his better books. The plot is full of logical holes that really detract from the story. It is, as always with Pearson, well written. Regrettably, it is not compelling. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cin Masson | 6/6/2013

    " Ridley Pearson is such a talented writer. He writes about KGB agents, serial killers and terrorists with authority. The intricate plot was suspensful, well constructed and plausible. "

    " Not one of his best but do be warned of some strong language and sexual situations. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Holly | 3/6/2013

    " Fast paced, race against time to try to catch some terrorists before they down another plane, i.e.: the term "hard fall". Ridley Pearson never fail to please and deliver a great read. "

    " Read a lot of his books 20 years ago, including this one, and I was hooked. It would be interesting to go back and read them again now--- "

    " I just never got hooked by this one. I tried, but ending up losing interest 2/3 of the way through. Just didn't care how it all worked out. "
