FEATURING THREE CHARACTERS FROM THE BESTSELLING BOOK-CLUB FAVORITE THE LIFE WE BURY, THIS NOVEL EXPLORES A RIVETING MURDER CASE TOLD FROM TWO OPPOSING PERSPECTIVES. Detective Max Rupert and attorney Boady Sanden's friendship is being pushed to the breaking point. Max is convinced that Jennavieve Pruitt was killed by her husband, Ben.

Max is still struggling with the death of his wife four years earlier, and the Pruitt case stirs up old memories. Boady hasn't taken on a defense case since the death of an innocent client, a man Boady believes he could have saved but didn't. Now he is back in court, with student Lila Nash at his side, and he's determined to redeem himself for having failed in the past. Vividly told from two opposing perspectives, the truth about the stunning death of Jennavieve Pruitt remains a mystery until the very end.… (lisätietoja)

This was a fun read with some pretty good twists. I didn't really buy the way the cold case was handled at the end but it didn't take away too much from my overall enjoyment of the book.

3.5 if half stars were allowed but rounding up. ( )

Detective Max Rupert and attorney Boady Sanden's friendship is being pushed to the breaking point. Max is convinced that Jennavieve Pruitt was killed by her husband, Ben.

Vividly told from two opposing perspectives, the truth about the stunning death of Jennavieve Pruitt remains a mystery until the very end.

The story did a good job switching back and forth between evidence that made Ben look guilty and evidence that made him look innocent. It kept me interested and guessing which was right. The characters were well developed and believable. There were a couple of surprises at the end but the ending wasn’t completely believable. Still, I enjoyed the story and plan to read more by this author. ( )

The only book... until this one...that I had read by this author was [The Life We Bury] and I hoped at the end of that one that he was going to write another one. Seems I'm a day late and a dollar short seeing as how he wrote 2 more since that one. Glad I found this one and was reacquainted with some old friends from the first one. Like most mystery readers, I love to try to figure out the who and why of the story, but one twist was proceeded by another and another making the ending something that I never contemplated. Lets get on with the next book, Mr. Eskens. ( )

Complex and contentious relationships linking the three major players are front and centre in The Heavens May Fall by Allen Eskens. Detective Max Rupert and attorney-turned-professor Boady Sanden are long-time friends, a close bond that has been strained since Max’s wife Jenni was killed in a hit-and-run four years earlier: Max is still mourning and is resentful because no one was ever charged. Boady, who retired from his law practice when an innocent young client died while in custody, is also friends with his former law partner Ben Pruitt. When Ben’s wife Jennavieve is found in an alley, dead from a stab wound to the neck, Ben convinces Boady to return to active practice and step in as his attorney. Jennavieve was wealthy and headed a foundation fighting to defend wetlands from developers. There is also a stoic and unsentimental sister in the picture who stands to gain greatly from Jennavieve’s death. But Ben is convinced that, even with possible suspects galore and an alibi that seems rock solid, Max is gunning for him. This is because Max and Ben share some unpleasant history, bad blood stemming from a courtroom confrontation: during a trial in which Ben was defending a client, he questioned Max’s integrity and accused him of falsifying evidence. In reality, Max is under pressure from a politically motivated prosecutor to find the necessary proof to put Ben behind bars, proof that, as the investigation proceeds with little in the way of results, Max begins to doubt even exists. Max is inclined to look elsewhere for a suspect, but, despite the misgivings of the police and a shaky case, the prosecutor convenes a grand jury and obtains an indictment against Ben Pruitt for murder. And then Max is sidetracked: by an anonymous tip regarding his wife’s death. But is the tip genuine, or simply a distraction tossed his way to throw him off his game? The action proceeds briskly, and the story ramps up plenty of tension and suspense as Max, Ben and Boady each approach the murder of Jennavieve Pruitt through the prism of their own experience. Allen Eskens is a no-frills writer: there is nothing particularly exciting or imaginative about his prose—he sets scenes in a few words and avoids literary flourishes—but it gets the job done. The Heavens May Fall, even with an ending that many readers will see coming, provides plenty of entertainment value. ( )
