The new novel from New York Times bestseller Dennis Lehane, author of Mystic River and Shutter Island

“Lehane is the master of complex human characters thrust into suspenseful, page-turning situations.” —Gillian Flynn

Since We Fell follows Rachel Childs, a former journalist who, after an on-air mental breakdown, now lives as a virtual shut-in. In all other respects, however, she enjoys an ideal life with an ideal husband. Until a chance encounter on a rainy afternoon causes that ideal life to fray. As does Rachel’s marriage. As does Rachel herself. Sucked into a conspiracy thick with deception, violence, and possibly madness, Rachel must find the strength within herself to conquer unimaginable fears and mind-altering truths. By turns heart- breaking, suspenseful, romantic, and sophisticated, Since We Fell is a novel of profound psychological insight and tension. It is Dennis Lehane at his very best.


  • Great story, however...

    Haya is not a Japanese name. That is all.
  • Just not good

    By MegSBC03
    Only about 30% into the book and at this point I still have zero clue what the plot is about, where is this story going, and why all the pointless details???!!! I prefer to finish books I start but I simply can’t with this one. When you find yourself just skipping pages simply to get the actual substance of the book it’s time to call it quits. Don’t bother with this one.
  • Riveting from start to finish

    Could not put this book down. I was captivated by Rachel’s quest to find her father and ultimately in finding herself. Through all the twists and dark turns I was continually left guessing and pleasantly surprised by the unfolding story and conclusions that Rachel’s journey led her to. Highly recommended
  • Not His Best

    I agree with many of the other reviewers. I have read all of Lehane’s books and love him as a writer. However I just couldn’t get into this book. It is taking so long for the storyline to develop. I am about a third of the way through the book and just can’t finish it. So disappointing but I am confident his next book will be on par with all of his previous.

    I got lost once or twice but still a very good read.
  • Not worth the time

    This book was a boring disappointment. The story takes forever to get to the point and there is no ending. It just stops! Don’t bother.

    Great read -well written.
  • Strange book

    By Dogma12345
    If the author had dropped the pretense of this book being a work of literature and concentrated on making it what it turned out to be, I would have enjoyed it.

    Dennis Lehane does it again with Since We Fell, his latest crime thriller, but this time through the eyes of a woman. Great summer read.
  • Not good

    By Andrealynnstuartfarris
    First few chapters were great! Then... I'm not sure what happened. Irritating Characters. Remarkably boring with a ridiculous ending.
