“Exceptional writing, utterly engaging characters, and a story that shifts between thrilling, heartbreaking, and hilarious before its final poignant ending.” — Olen Steinhauer, New York Times bestselling author of The Tourist

Jacob Cameron Asprey, Jr., is the charming son of a charming crook who’s currently residing in the state pen. Strangled by family ties, Jake is barely scraping by. When a local crime boss offers him a deal he’d be a fool to take and a chump to pass up, Jake sees a way out of his troubles — until his options begin to close down, and he finds himself at the heart of a dark plot that will place those he loves in harm’s way.

This Is How You Fall is a story of old flames, old debts, and a new twist on an old con. Part heist, part love story, and part literary noir thriller, it’s a moody rumination on identity and loyalty, with dazzling plot twists that lead to an inevitable, destructive conclusion.

Give this stylishly gritty book a read because it is worth it. The characters and setting involved people & places I would normally not care to read much about, but the telling of the tale is so compelling that o wanted to know what each character was going to do next.

Plus a decent plot twist & some sexiness.
