A chilling, exhilarating new thriller from the award-winning Candice Fox, described by the Sydney Morning Herald as 'an important new voice in crime fiction'. "I'm sure every day Eden looked in the mirror and wondered if she should kill me..."

If Detective Frank Bennett tries hard enough, he can sometimes forget that Eden Archer, his partner in the Homicide Department, is also a moonlighting serial killer . . .

Thankfully their latest case is proving a good distraction. Someone is angry at Sydney’s beautiful people – and the results are anything but pretty. On the rain-soaked running tracks of Sydney’s parks, a predator is lurking, and it’s not long before night-time jogs become a race to stay alive.

While Frank and Eden chase shadows, a different kind of danger grows closer to home. Frank’s new girlfriend Imogen Stone is fascinated by cold cases, and her latest project – the disappearance of the two Tanner children more than twenty years ago – is leading her straight to Eden’s door.

And, as Frank knows all too well, asking too many questions about Eden Archer can get you buried as deep as her past …


Fall is the third novel in Candice Fox's acclaimed series, following Hades, winner of the Ned Kelly Award for Best Debut 2014, and Eden, winner of the Ned Kelly Award for Best Crime Novel 2015, presented by the Australian Crime Writers Association.

Primo Life

Fox writes gripping, unfiltered action.

Queensland Times

Tough and thrilling, this will keep you reading well into the night.

Sunday Canberra Times

I'm here to argue that there are women writers, both US and Australian, who can hold their own against the guys. My favourite is Australian Candice Fox . . . The stories are dark yet life-affirming.
