  • Brenda
    When Detective Frank Bennett and his partner Detective Eden Archer attended the gruesome murder of one of the night time joggers in Sydney’s parks, all indications pointed to the woman being killed by someone she knew. It was quite obviously personal – the destruction of the victim’s face told them that. But when a second body turned up, more brutally beaten than the first, they realised the race was on to find the killer before more bodies...

    Returning for a third instalment of the Archer-Bennett series, Fox takes readers down the more precarious of thriller rabbit holes while keeping things as sinister as her past two novels have exemplified. After almost losing her life to a serial killer and admitting her moonlighting as a killer herself, Eden Archer must rely heavily on her partner, Frank Bennett. Their latest case sees women targeted while out for a run, tranquillised and their f...

    4.5 stars - that was excellent.This was the best book in the series of three. I'm sorry to get to the end of this series as it has been most entertaining and deliciously different, although I'm not sure the door has been completely closed on another sequel.Eden and Frank are investigating a series of murders of women joggers in Sydney parks. We learn who the murderer is pretty early on but this does not detract as we are slowly fed their backstor...

    Fall by Candice Fox is the third instalment in her series featuring detectives Eden Archer and Frank Bennett. Fox's first two novels in this series, Hades and Eden received a myriad of accolades here in Australia. And rightly so.Fall picks up where Eden (the book) left off. The character (not the book) is struggling to regain her strength after being almost sliced in half in the book bearing her name. Frank's still in the honeymoon stages of his ...

    Großartiges Finale!Auf den dritten Band der Trilogie habe ich sehnsüchtig gewartet. Nach allem, was auf der Farm und dort mit Eden passiert ist, konnte ich es kaum erwarten zu lesen, wie es weiter geht und auch was Imogene herausfindet und wie Eden reagieren wird...und Frank.Die Story geht schon geheimnisvoll und spannend los, so dass man gleich wieder umgehend in Edens, Hades' und Franks Welt gezogen wird. Ein Mörder treibt sich des nachts in...
  • Lyn Haines
    Candice Fox's third book in the Archer & Bennet series delves into the murky Sydney which lies just beneath the sparkling harbour and manicured gardens featured on tourist postcards.Predators are victims, ethics are nebulous, loyalties are shifted. It's well crafted and creepy. Enjoy.

    Another winner by Fox! Review to follow.

    Wow-Wee! Candice Fox delivers once again! This series is one that I would gladly re-read again and again. It is THAT good. I’ve rated all 3 five stars as each were unputdownable; I couldn’t wait to find out what’s going to happen next from one page to the next much less from one book to the next. I am hopping from one foot to another in impatience for the next instalment of Archer & Bennett.Eden ends with a threat hanging over Eden’s secr...

    Candice Fox is a huge talent. Loved all of her dark thrillers, so treat yourself and get all three. :)
  • Dasha M
    I loved this gritty, clever and eloquent book. From the onset it is full of twisted turns and concise prose.
  • Rosalie
    I enjoy a good detective thriller and this one delivers a fast paced "can't put it down" read. 'Fall' is a psycho police murder mystery thriller set in Sydney. It is a sequel to two other books - 'Hades' and 'Eden' - but works well as a stand alone as I enjoyed it immensely and have not read the earlier books. There are many strong female characters but the main protagonists all seem a bit mentally unhinged due to PTS. Nevertheless describing all...
  • Cristine Paquette
    Yet another incredible murder mystery from Candice Fox, I think this might be my favorite of them all so far! Candice Fox has quickly become one of my favorite crime authors!

    The quote above comes from a new character's POV: Amy. I was a little confused by the introduction of Amy at first, but she was such a great character that she easily became one of my favourites. The switch in POV in this book is excellent, and not only do we get Frank's, Eden's, the killer's and Hades, we get others as well.Frank's girlfriend Imogen was alway curious to me. I liked the conflict she brought to fall and the way it fed into the plo...

    After reading Hades, and Eden back to back at the beginning of December on vacation in Mexico, I had to read the next book in the series. Unfortunately it came out December 3rd, but only in Australia. I sucked it up and paid the $30.00 dollars for the book and $40.00 for shipping and managed to hold off reading the book as long as I could. In this case 9 days. Fall the title of the 3rd book in the series is better than the first two combined. You...

    Disappointed when compared to books 1 and 2.. When the person responsible for screening information and ruling out nutters concerning the serial killers identity interrupts Frank with what they think is a valid lead and he is to distracted to not even have a team member follow up is unbelievable. At the end when Frank is recovering after being deliberately shot by a fellow squad member wouldn't there be a few loose ends to be tied up. Not to ment...

    Candice Fox is on the verge of scoring a rare hat-trick at this year’s Ned Kelly awards with the release of the third book in her Frank Bennett and Eden Archer series. Full review at Newtown Review of Books with a bonus link to Lou Murphy's review of the first book - Hades.

    Frank Bennett ermittelt mit Eden wieder in einer Mordserie. Es werden Joggerinnen mit zerschlagenem Gesicht aufgefunden. So schön und jung sie zu Lebzeiten sind, sieht man davon in ihren Tod nichts mehr davon. Frank und Eden haben es nicht leicht irgendwelche Anhaltspunkte zu finden. Zumal eine Joggerin auch noch ein großes Event aufzieht, indem sie jeden Menge Jogger zu einen nächtlichen Lauf aufruft um es dem Serienmörder zu zeigen. Ob das ...
  • John Reid
    Fall was a big disappointment for me. After thoroughly enjoying Hades and Eden, I was looking forward to the next instalment in this series. Unfortunately the plot developed from the implausible to the impossible from the opening page. Whilst, Hades and Eden both showed exceptional creativity and imagination, Fall stretched beyond the limits of credible imagination.I very much doubt that a Fun Run similar in scale to City to Surf could be organis...

    "You're the only killer I know.""And that's the key, the thing you're forgetting," Eden snapped. "You know me.""I can't even being - I can't even begin to list the things I don't know about you, Eden."It took me way longer than necessary to finish this book. It wasn't bad really, just not particularly good. And considering it was the last book in a trilogy, I wanted it to end with a bang. I really wanted to know how it all ended - will Eden be ou...
  • Mersini
    Really enjoyed the first one. Enjoyed bits of the second. And was quite tired of this one. It's not that it's bad, it's that it's following a formula. Knowing who the killer was from the beginning wasn't quite working for me this time. At this point I'd probably not read any more of this series if it came out. I'm curious about character development, but it's not intriguing enough to make me want to continue, considering that I don't particularly...
  • Josie
    I had high hopes for this book as I particularly liked the first two in the series, Hades and Eden. Unfortunately I found Fall a big disappointment. The story wasn't as engaging as the first two books and the characters were less plausible. But my biggest let down by far was the ending! If there's a fourth book in the series I am not sure I'll bother.
  • Jennifer
    I couldn't put this book down. In this third instalment of the Archer-Bennett series, Eden & Frank are on another serial killer hunt. There are a lot of story lines going on and sometimes, too much time in between each and some seem to end too quickly. But I loved it anyway. Cannot wait for a fourth Archer-Bennett book - the end alludes to one that may be the darkest of them all.
  • Brenda Kittelty
    A disappointing chapter in this series of excellent crime novels. I felt let down by the development of one of the main characters, unconvinced by one of the peripherals and left wondering why the love interest even existed. Still a riveting page-turner, but the characterisations were sloppy.
  • Joe Slavinsky
    Candice Fox is amazing. I've read, and loved, all three of the "Archer & Bennett" series, and I definitely want more. This book grabbed me by the throat, sucked me right in, and held me nearly breathless, right to the end.
  • Judy
    Read this novelCandice Fox is awesome! I look forward to her books wish she wrote one a month. Her stories are exciting and just brilliant. So read all her novels you'll be happy you did☺
  • Theresa
    Third in the series--Archer and Bennett are a weird pair. You'll like these books if you like the concept of serial killers who kill bad guys (and gals). Fox is great at building suspense and I find the books intriguing.
