Love hurts. FBI agent Kelly Feinman knows this is true. While she is recovering from an attack by a serial killer called the "Acid Man," her husband leaves her. Physically and emotionally scarred by the murderer, Kelly feels she will never be the same. She is cut off not only from her husband and child, but also from her fellow FBI agents, who see her as a rogue for going after the Acid Man alone. Love is hell. Matt Connor knows this is true. His love for his girlfriend, Amy, is so intense that he feels he is in heaven when he is with her. When Amy leaves him for another man, Matt is shattered. In agony, he plans a diabolical scheme that first calls for him to disappear from the face of the earth. His revenge will make Amy wish she had never been born. Love can heal. Matt's act of vengeance puts him in charge of Amy's infant son. He discovers a soothing warmth in Jimmy's eyes that makes him wonder if Amy's betrayal truly merited wrecking the child's life. Yet Matt's heart cannot be made whole until he has won Amy back. Kelly cannot be made whole until she understands the depth of evil that lurks behind the Acid Man. Ironically, to rid herself and the world of her nemesis, she must seek out Matt Connor, a wanted man she has been ordered to bring to justice. In Falling, Christopher Pike explores the depth and breadth of human emotion through two brilliantly etched characters: Kelly Feinman, who pays a terrible price to understand the nature of true evil, and Matt Connor, a classic antihero who captures the listener's sympathy. The listener is drawn deeply into the hearts and minds of these two people, who almost against our will force us to face our deepest fears. It is that power that makes Falling impossible to forget.

    Christopher Pike novels are notorious for ending badly, so I was prepared for that. What I wasnt expecting was the complete lack of a mythical twist that he usually has in his books, I kept waiting for it, and finally with only 15 minutes left I realized it wasnt coming. Kinda disappointing. But I was enthralled during the book, listened to it in 1 day, of course I was waiting for the payout where everything tied together in a mystical bow, however, that never came. Still a good book, but not brilliant

    This is the first time I have read this author and I began to wonder why I never read him before. While the characters get slightly unbelievable, the twists and turns keep one listening. I felt Amy and Matt had a sort of Lucy-Charlie Brown relationship in that he kept believing her even though he was so intelligent in so many other areas. A very enjoyable book.
