Every book that Kimi Cunningham Grant has written captures then essence of the setting that it focuses on. Fallen Mountains is no exception, it’s full of the gritty darkness of a back-road story. It’s perfectly paced, perfectly written with characters and a storyline that will have you reeled in and hooked right up until the end.

‘You really never know people, not fully. People are strange. They hold onto things, they have secrets. And trust me we do things we didn’t think we were capable of, good and bad. All of us. People can commit all sorts of atrocities, even normal people, good people. Think of wars. How else could such barbarities occur, if the deep capacity to do evil didn’t exist in every one of us?’

The way that the secrets of the main characters are unravelled is incredibly tense. You can feel the tension in every page, every chapter. The small-town claustrophobic feeling of the book is strong – it’s a straight forward mystery with lots of depth to reach the culmination.
