Amid a sultry Atlanta summer, someone is targeting police. The investigation becomes personal for APD Detective Ryan Winter when a colleague and friend is shot dead - the second victim in weeks. But even as he finds himself being drawn into the tense hunt for a serial cop killer, he is forced to reexamine his own shattering personal tragedy.
An ER physician at Atlanta's busy Mercy Hospital, Dr. Lydia Costa is no stranger to suffering. Still, the recent police slayings reopen barely healed wounds - and bring her face to face with her ex-husband, Ryan Winter. As the body count rises and paranoia tightens its grip on the police force, Lydia and Ryan are pulled together by circumstances and fate, causing old passions to reignite despite their painful shared past. But as Ryan moves closer to discovering the killer's identity, someone is watching, placing both him and Lydia in mortal danger.

Surprisingly, prior to June, I had never read a book written by Leslie Tentler, nor had I really even heard much about her or her books! I couldn't have picked a better first book to read, as I was smittenly (if that's a word!) captivated by Fallen!
I knew that I would love listening to this book, as Marguerite Gavin is one of my all-time favorite narrators! She narrates a lot of Karen Rose books, and ironically, I felt that Tentler's writing very closely resembled that of Karen Rose, which is nothing to be ashamed of!!!
Fallen immediately started out keeping you hanging on the edge of your seat, and kept you in that same position, if not edging you over more and more the further you got into the story. The story flowed nicely with a great development of characters!
Overall, I LOVED this book, and only wish I could find more books that left me with the feelings I had after reading this! All too often since reading, I find myself trying to find something that closely resembles this, because it left that great of an impression on me! Great job Leslie Tentler! This book is a HOME RUN!!!
