It’s 1998 and James Bridge has returned to his hometown twenty years after the apparent murder and disappearance of his childhood friend. However, Bridge soon finds himself an outsider in a community he once regarded as his own, forced to confront his past and that of his former friends as the killings begin again.
Fall Leaves Fall is a compelling supernatural thriller.
Fall, Leaves, Fall by Mike Driver is a great read. From the beginning I was taken in and wrapped up by the story. I knew I was hooked as soon as I read the prologue. The mysteries within are the kind you just can’t ignore and can’t wait to figure out.
James Bridge returns home after being away for 20 years. He is a fairly unassuming character. James felt like he could have been anyone, just a regular guy. Not successful, but not exactly a failure either. He doesn’t really seem too driven by anything in particular, but at the same time, he’s not a boring character either. Whatever happened to his friend Pete 20 years ago has definitely affected him mentally though. He’s a likeable character, simply for the fact that he seems like an average guy.
This is a Thriller/Mystery/Horror type of book. There are hints of the possibility of supernatural elements, but I’m not going to tell you what they are. The author gives you information little by little and has you chomping at the bit for more. By the halfway mark I was dying to know what was really going on.
Fall, Leaves, Fall is a fast paced, and thrilling read that will keep the reader on their toes waiting to see what will happen next. I thoroughly enjoyed it and recommend it to anyone who is looking for something to get their brain gears turning.
