Loved the description and language. A superb blend of international-standard crime-writing with a strong local ambience that lures you in and delivers a strong and emotionally satisfying read. Will definitely pick up Ben's next novel as a good Kiwi read - perfect for a summertime read at the beach! I really enjoyed this book - read it in one sitting on a rainy Sunday afternoon. Liked the lead characters and also liked that the ultimate criminal there is more than 1 were believable even if I didn't guess one of them! This author has a short, sharp and yet descriptive writing style that kept the plot moving along. Sean is joined by John Hale, ex-army and ex-cop, now turned security specialist, which is just as well because John seems to have more smarts than Sean who has a habit of goading people. I think it's great that publishers here seem more open to New Zealand crime writing, and are looking to sign up new authors, as well as establishing some series authors like Symon and Cleave, etc. Sanders' first three published novels - the Auckland Trilogy - were all written while he was studying at the ; he later graduated with a Bachelor of Engineering with First Class Honours and was named on the Dean's Honours List.

Buy The Fallen by Ben Sanders from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books. Maverick cop Sean Devereaux returns early from leave to investigate the murder of a teenage 'princess', whose battered body is found sprawled amongst the flowerbeds of central Auckland park. However, i think the book should be cut down to half of what it is. Sanders still achieved a 6—0 victory. An impressive debut from a new voice, that further underlines the continuing growth and strength of modern New Zealand crime writing.

How much did he know? As he investigates the murder of a 16-ye When local cop Sean Devereaux, who enjoys skating close to the edge, does a favour for his attractive neighbour, he unwittingly exposes a web of deceit and corruption. I don't believe in providing a narrative of what a book is about - read it!! Whilst slightly more expensive than I would normally pay for a crime book via Amazon, it was worth the price and I'll be downloading this authors other books. Think Jack Reacher with a house, and a car, and a job, and a friend, ok, maybe Not all police procedurals occur in seedy parts of Los Angeles or New York, they happen in downtown Auckland, New Zealand as well. Really enjoyed seeing Auckland, New Zealand street names that I recognised and knew fairly well. I first read the book based in the States as I was told that was better than his previous books. Sanders was a keen reader as a child, and particularly enjoyed crime and thriller fiction.

His sophisticated and edgy style signals the emergence of a major new writing talent. The style is spare and tight with authentic dialogue. The Sean Devereaux one-liners are classic, saying all that needs to be said in a single line.

With his unconventional ex-colleague-turned-security-specialist John Hale, Devereaux slowly begins to unravel the truth as the body count climbs and the stakes become personal.

Sanders followed up The Fallen with two further Auckland-set novels starring Devereaux and Hale: By Any Means Harpercollins, 2011 and Only the Dead Harpercollins, 2013. I loved the sparse yet detailed style of this book, descriptions evoking mood but not so much that you think, come on, get on with the story. He has just signed a two-book contract with HarperCollins Publishers New Zealand. As he investigates the murder of a 16-year-old Epsom 'princess' in his day job, his after-hours efforts have him stumbling into the aftermath of a scam involving senior colleagues, and he is soon enmeshed in an escalating cycle of kidnapping, murder and violent mayhem. With his unconventional ex-colleague-turned-security-specialist John Hale, Devereaux slowly begins to unravel the truth as the body count climbs and the stakes become personal. But I'm probably quite biased because no detective can take me away like Harry Hole.

Juggling on-duty and off-duty workloads with the help of his private eye buddy, the strong-but-silent John Hale a relationship which is a touch reminiscent of Robert Crais' Elvis Cole and Joe Pike , Devereux stumbles upon a scam that may involve some of his superiors, and opens a Pandora's box, as things spiral out of control. There are a couple of story lines going on - a murder and a situation that escalates quickly from a simple stakeout. Plot and character wise, slightly archetypal.
