When you hear her story, will you believe her?
Rose Marlowe is a hard-working nurse, a loving wife, and a merciless killer. Or so she says. Despite her confession, it is hard to believe that this beautiful, kind woman could have killed her vulnerable patient in cold blood.
Down-on-his luck author and ex-journalist, Theo Hazel, is convinced that there’s more to what happened than Rose is telling, and so decides to visit her behind bars to write her story. His first surprise comes when Rose reveals that the victim was not a stranger to her.
As time goes on, it seems that Rose is letting Theo see behind her perfect mask. With each new visit, he learns terrible new things about her heart-breaking past. With each new visit, he becomes more and more convinced that she can’t be a killer. But is he trying to free an innocent woman, or falling prey to a calculating murderer?

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.”
‘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.’
‘…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
