Book review: The Boy Who Fell by Jo Spain (published 2019)
Format: audiobook (from Audible) narrated by Aoife McMahon
Rating: 3.5/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Six weeks ago, Daniel Konaté Jones was accused of raping and pushing Luke Connolly to his death from the third floor window of an abandoned house. He is now in custody and not talking. Natasha McCarthy, the head of sexual crimes who’s also Daniel’s relative, begged DCI Tom Reynolds to look at her nephew’s case. From the outset, this looks like a pretty straight forward case but Tom knows that something is just not right.

This is the fifth book in the ‘Inspector Tom Reynolds’ series and like the previous ones, also raised some other important issues including racism, homophobia, class discrimination and the wealth privilege. As DCI Reynolds peels off the layers of mystery surrounding this case and more suspects emerge, the more on edge I become!

It was again narrated by the amazing Aoife McMahon and I now have the different accents and styles of speaking of all the characters in my head!

Unfortunately, I didn’t like the ending (a bit meh for me..) but the story itself and the narration was so on point that I would definitely recommend the audiobook version!
