A detective with a unique gift, a tragic suicide and big city corruption - 'The Fallen' is the stunning new thriller from the author of 'The Blue Hour': 'a great writer...he's amazing' Lee Child What if you could tell someone was a killer just by looking at them? Detective Robbie Brownlaw can. A six-storey plunge from a burning hotel leaves him with the usual broken bones - and something different. Synesthesia. The ability to see words and emotions as colours makes Robbie a human lie detector. It's a condition that might have helped Garrett Asplundth. Hired to look into rumours surrounding a certain madam's Little Black Book, Garrett found a lot more than the usual round of losers and sad husbands. But the dirt came at a high price. Now he's dead and it's only when Robbie gets hold of the book that he finds out just why Garrett was so curious - and why others will kill to get it back...

Jefferson Parker lives in Laguna Beach, California. When not working on his books, Parker spends his time with his family, hiking, hunting and fishing, and haunting the public tennis courts.From AudioFile:
Murder mystery meets sci-fi in this story about a cop affected after a fall by "post-traumatic swelling" of the brain. The injury leaves Homicide Detective Robbie Brownlaw able to judge people by seeing colors they emanate while speaking (red for lying, etc.). David Colacci's tenor voice doesn't have the range needed to successfully portray Brownlaw's female partner, McKenzie Cortez. And Colacci grates on the listener by starting nearly every sentence LOUD, then trailing off. . . LOUD, then trailing off. . . LOUD, then trailing off. . . . There's a great line in the story that describes the performance itself. It won't make your heart pound "like a dryer full of sneakers."
