Inspiration & Research

I wanted to explore the grief, and anger, of a mother whose child has been brutally murdered, whilst in parallel looking at and questioning the inherent nature of institutional corruption. I researched this novel extensively, and some aspects of the storyline that pertain to the internal corruption within the psychiatric hospital are loosely based on fact.

Praise for Falling Suns 

“This book is highly effective. The pace is relentless and it is really is difficult to put it down. The plot and characters are believable, and the atmosphere created is redolent with both despair and hope. This is an excellent read.”  

Crime Review 

‘Falling Suns is without doubt a dark tale, and is interesting and different from many of the psychological thrillers that are out there at the moment. There are some lovely descriptions and great writing. It will be interesting to see what J.A. Corrigan writes next.’

Mystery People Magazine

‘…Falling Suns is a stunning debut. Bold, visceral and intelligent, with not one word wasted… It would also make a wonderful film or TV drama.’

Sally Spedding, author of Cut to the Bone 

‘A cleverly written novel that leads the reader down streets that have no way out, retracing their steps only to have another possibility open up to them. The author had me guessing right to the end. A great book. Ms Corrigan deserves great success with Falling Suns; it stands on the bookshelf alongside the best thriller writers’

Susan Roebuck , author & blogger

‘A pacy, atmospheric thriller. There are twists and turns enough to keep the reader guessing to the end, but so much more as well: the fierce claustrophobia of warped family love, the inescapability of the past, and a strong protagonist whose emotional journey cannot help but draw you in. Gut-wrenching stuff.’

Rosy Thornton, author
