Book Description

Time to die...

The explosive new thriller featuring Kate Maddox from the writers of Catch Your Death and Killing Cupid.

Two years on from uncovering a terrifying conspiracy of rogue scientists, all Kate Maddox wants is to lead a normal life with her partner Paul and son Jack. But then a face from the past turns up, bringing chilling news.

A devastating new strain of the virus that killed Kate's parents is loose in L.A. - and when a bomb rips through a hotel killing many top scientists, it becomes clear someone will do anything to stop a cure being found.

While Paul goes on the hunt for answers, Kate finds herself in a secret laboratory in the heart of California, desperately seeking a way to stop the contagion. But time is running out and soon it will be too late to save their loved ones, themselves, and the world...

Review

Praise for Killing Cupid:

‘I was gripped all the way – the ending is terrific.’ Peter James

‘A very clever, very pacy story that kept me guessing right to the end’ Elizabeth Haynes

‘An ingenious tale of stalking and its twisted repercussions. Took me in a very different direction from the one I'd been expecting.' Alex Marwood

About the Author

Mark Edwards and Louise Voss met after Louise saw Mark on a TV documentary about aspiring writers, and a writing partnership was born. Their first two thrillers, Killing Cupid and Catch Your Death, were huge hits when the pair self-published them online, becoming the first UK indie authors to reach No. 1 in both the Amazon Kindle and Amazon Fiction charts.
Mark is marketing director for a student money website, and Louise is a concert administrator at a London university. They live in south London with their families.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Fun Thriller 22 Jan. 2013
By R. A. Davison TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
All Fall Down from the Voss/Edwards writing duo is the follow up to Catch Your Death and returns to the lives of the protagonists of that novel Kate Maddox and Paul Wilson. Kate, virologist and Watoto virus expert is called upon by the FBI when a strain of the virus breaks out on a Native American reservation. Partner Paul follows her to America and does some freelance investigating of his own still seeking explanations and retribution for the death of his twin Stephen.

The third novel from the Voss/Edwards team All Fall Down shows a positive strengthening of their partnership, faster, tauter, and an improvement in terms of their prose from Catch Your Death, the two writers have obviously become more comfortable with each other and the unusual demands of writing as a double act as a continuing professional development.

I was worried that Paul would feel somehow out of place or redundant but his storyline manages to maintain plausibility within an implausible circumstance.

I say this, because in summary of All Fall Down, it is a story in which a religious cult of lesbians attempt to provoke an apocalypse by means of biological terrorism. A snuff threesome occurs before page 150.

If this sounds silly, it's because it is, but it by no means harms the fun thriller purpose of the novel, in many ways this is the product for sale, a giddy race against time with a level of James Bond esque silliness expected from an action film. The moment when the girls break into the secret lab is particularly worthy of any Hollywood blockbuster in terms of the imagery you conjur up in your mind.

I have but one criticism : Jack.

5.0 out of 5 stars A thriller and a half! 6 Mar. 2013
Format:Paperback
I previously read and reviewed 'Killing Cupid' and was absolutely delighted when 'All Fall Down' was sent to me. This is the sequel to 'Catch Your Death', a book I haven't actually read, but that didn't spoil it for me at all.

Two years ago Kate Maddox uncovered a terrifying conspiracy of rogue scientists. Now she just wants to be able to lead a normal and happy life with her partner Paul and son Jack. But her hopes are dashed when a face from the past turns up at one of her lectures, bringing with him some rather shocking news. It turns out that a new strain of the virus which originally killed Kate's parents has found its way to Los Angeles. The clock is ticking, a cure needs to be found as soon as possible before it's too late! Will Kate succeed?

I totally loved this book. Right from the start I found this to be a very gripping read. Each page, every single paragraph is full of thrills with lots of shocks and surprises throughout. There are some scary characters too. I certainly wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of Heather. A real page-turner, this is a thriller and a half. I got so involved in the story, so much so in fact that every time someone sneezed I actually thought they had got the virus!

Louise Voss and Mark Edwards are very talented. They work so well together and their writing is like magic. They are fast becoming favourite authors of mine.

Look out for their new book 'Forward Slash' which is due out in the summer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creepily compelling! 20 Dec. 2012
By FionaB
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm a bit of a sucker for doomsday thrillers and conspiracy theories, so I loved this book. The chilling, macabre prologue got me completely hooked.

I particularly liked the way that the story was constructed: the spread of the deadly Watoto virus throws the main characters together ... and then blows them apart again, leaving them to forge their own paths through the book. The story moves swiftly to and fro between the characters, offering tantalizing morsels of information as to their progress to uncover a cure, and the truth. But as the virus gruesomely eliminates more and more people, you get the sinking feeling that not all of them are going to make it back alive.

The menacing presence of a sadistic coven of damaged women really adds to the page-turning quality of this novel. Their role is slowly revealed as the story unfolds and I won't spoil it by going into it too much - but I found this a brilliant and fascinating facet to the plot.

And just when you think the ending can't get any more tense, it does! Well worth a read. It slides in front of the eyes very easily: pacy and gripping.

5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting page turner 14 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Although a sequel to Catch Your Death, All Fall Down works perfectly as a stand alone read. The character of Kate Maddox is further developed and she is becoming a more rounded, likeable character. This is a fast paced, scientific, thriller in which the science doesn't detract from the story (in fact I found it fascinating as a non-scientific person). Thrown into the mix is some love interest, a cult and children in jeopardy all of which combine into a gripping, pacy, well written novel.
I can't wait to see what the next book from Voss and Edwards brings!

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent sequel to 'Catch Your Death' 3 April 2013
By poppy74
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
All fall down is the sequel to Catch your death, which I read almost 2 years ago now. I've got quite the thing for killer viruses that have the potential to wipe out humanity so this book is right up my street! It follows virologist Dr Kate Maddox as she heads to America to help with finding a cure for a deadly virus which has been released into the general population by person/persons unknown. Her partner Paul and her son Jack tag along, but are separated and the chapters switch between the 3 characters.

It's fast paced, and is written in an easy to read style. I really like Kate's character but Paul tends to be quite impulsive, despite the best intentions. The 'baddies' are also really fascinating.

It can be read as a stand alone book, but I'd recommend reading 'Catch your Death' first if you haven't already.

I really hope there is another book that follows on, and I'm really looking forward to their new book 'Forward Slash' which is out in the summer.
