Angels Fall is Nora Roberts’s new novel. Allow me to quote from the cover:

"Reece Gilmore has come a long way to see the stunning view below her. As the sole survivor of a brutal crime back East, she has been on the run, desperately fighting the nightmares and panic attacks that haunt her. She settles in Angel’s Fist, Wyoming–temporarily, at least–and takes a job at a local diner. And now she’s hiked this mountain all by herself. It was glorious, she thinks, as she peers through her binoculars at the Snake River churning below.

And then she see the man and woman on the opposite bank. Arguing. Fighting. And suddenly, he’s on top of her, his hands around her throat . . . .

Enjoying a moment of solitude a bit farther down the trail is a gruff loner named Brody. But by the time Reece reaches him and brings him to the scene, the pair is gone. And when authorities comb the area where she saw the attach, they find nothing. No signs of struggle. No freshly turned earth. Not even a tire track.

And no one in Angel’s Fist seems to believe her. After all, she’s a newcomer in town with a reputation for being jumpy and jittery–maybe even a little fragile. Perhaps it’s time to run again, to move on.

Reece Gilmore knows there’s a killer in Angel’s Fist, even if Brody, despite his seeming impatience and desire to keep her at arm’s length, is the only one willing to believe her. When a series of menacing events makes it clear that someone wants her out of the way, Reece must put her trust in Brody–and herself–to find out if there is a killer in Angel’s Fist, before it’s too late."

If you don’t know who Nora Roberts is, you don’t live on planet Earth. She has written over 300 novels and is a consummate writer of many different genres.
In Angels Fall, a psychological mystery thriller, she captures so realistically the internal battle, pain and conflicts of a woman struggling to reclaim her life and sanity after surviving a serial killer’s rampage.

For all the many novels Nora has written, her stories are always new and her writing is always fresh. If you’re a Nora Roberts’s fan, you know . . . she’ll never disappoint you. She never does!
