When David Perry confides the sordid details of his bitter divorce to a sympathetic stranger, he never imagines the nightmare he would unleash. Now his socialite wife is dead, brutally murdered by a man who will stop at nothing to get what he wants…Veteran San Francisco homicide detective Jane Candiotti never allows her personal feelings to interfere with the job - until Jenna Perry is found strangled in the hills of Marin County. Now to uncover the truth, Jane must dig into the secrets of the city's most powerful families, a hunt that will draw her inextricably closer to David and his young daughter…and to the cold-blooded killer stalking their every move.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
Fall From Grace is a good detective novel with a great twist at the end. Unfortunately Angela Dawe's voice is as irritating as the sound of scratching on a blackboard. I seldom downrate a novel due to poor narration, but an exception is appropriate here.
Narration well done, enjoyable,
Loved the story base of San Francisco,and we'll done prose that allowed you to see the Golden Gate Bridge and its glory.
I bought the next book in this series and I still cannot stand the narrator.
Stop listening to this narrator
what a tired and trite book. this EXACT story has been told a gazillion times and usually much better. I almost never give up on a book but this one measures up as a fine exception.
If there is going to be a big surprise in the plot, you should be able to look back and find hints provided by the author. Not so here. Feels like cheating. Narration is generally good (a few mispronunciations) except for unnecessarily long pauses between sentences.
I enjoyed the first section; then the part where the perpetrator becomes obvious was just too unbelievable
have a different ending
If all the Jane Candiotti books have endings such as this, I will not read more.
S L O W moving story. So slow, in fact, I stopped after chapter three. Muddy character development. Narrator's sing song delivery and up lilt at the end of every sentence so distracting that I found myself not paying attention to what she was saying but hoping for a change in her delivery. Not worth the two bucks.
Reasonably decent story; but awful reader, and absolutely riddled with clichés. Not sure if I'll try any more by this author.
