The Long Fall by Julia Crouch

How far would you go to protect your secrets?

Greece, 1980:
Emma takes part in a shattering, violent event. An event to which she is anything but an innocent bystander.
She is only eighteen, but this marks her fall from innocence.
It will haunt her for the rest of her life.

London, now:
Kate has the perfect existence: a glossy image, a glamorous home, a perfect family.
But there are cracks.
All is not what it seems.

And now the two worlds are about to collide.

Somebody’s out for revenge.
Someone who has been waiting thirty years…


‘A tense and dramatic novel, switching seamlessly between two time periods’
Joan Smith, Sunday Times, June 2014 (see full review)

‘Terrific story-telling with plenty of twists that kept me reading well into the night.’
Woman and Home

‘A long-buried secret, blackmail and a mother with a lot to lose. THE LONG FALL is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your sun lounger.’
Good Housekeeping

‘Another compelling, beautifully-written book from one of the best writers in a strong field. Once again, Julia Crouch plays on our darkest fears, and makes the reader feel that the closer to home, the greater the menace. Brilliant’
Erin Kelly
