"All Fall Down" by Julie Coulter Bellon, a book review and giveaway

You know what it’s like—having that feeling like someone is watching you, right? You get a creepy sensation up your neck, the kind that leaves goosebumps along your skin. Multiply that times a thousand and that’s how Rafe feels when he walks into his brother’s office building for a simple meeting. He chalks it up to his Navy Seal training and tours in Afghanistan. It couldn’t be anything more than that. Right?

When Claire, a hostage negotiator for the local police department, sees Rafe for the first time, he’s kneeling on the roof of that building with a man standing behind him, wearing a bomb strapped around his chest, and a gun pointed at Rafe’s head. His feelings hadn’t turned out so imaginary.  The only words the expert negotiator can get out of the man is, “Ring around the rosy, a pocket full of posies. Ashes, ashes. We all fall down,” over and over again.

All Fall Down is a fast-paced, heart-pumping, exceeding well-crafted International Thriller written by the talented, and multi-published author, Julie Coulter Bellon. If you can’t read another book this year, I strongly suggest you buy this one and carve out the time. Your adrenaline will help you through to the end.

Leave a comment for a chance to win a $10.00 Amazon book gift card, but remember to leave your email address, like, debra erfert at yahoo dot com, or some such appropriate addy so I can contact you. I’ll do the drawing next Saturday and congratulate the winner! 

This is the link to Julie's paper book of All Fall Down. If you're a e-reader, like me, then go here and get your Kindle version.

You are exceptional, Andrew. I know where you lurk. ;D

You, too, Tanya! Glad you popped over. This is really a good read.

That little rhyme "ring around the rosy" always makes me think of bubonic plague. I wonder if the plague, or some other kind of very contagious disease, is part of the threat in this thriller? You've made it sound so intriguing!

Completely off topic here: I also had a look at your page "Windows -- 1st book in a sci-fi thriller" page, and that sounded quite intriguing as well! Just thought you might want to know. :-)

Debra Allen Erfert said...

Thanks, Melanie. I'm hoping that "Windows" will be intriguing, too. ;D

Andrew Leon said...

Ooh... I like being exceptional! :)

Gayle said...

I've heard great things about Julie's books but haven't had the chance to read any of them yet -- this one sounds very intriguing!

Thanks so much for the great review and giveaway Debra! I really appreciate it.

Kate said...

Oh, I love a fast-paced book!

I can't believe I hadn't noticed this book yet. You know how I love to "read". I've got her other one on CD in the car. My mom gave it to me and I didn't remember ever hearing it yet. So maybe I'll break down and "read" this one (and maybe NOT). These kinds of books are the best to listen to while driving!

emfawcett: I'm glad you like the short review. :)

Amber: I really want you to read it, too.

Shirley: If you don't win, I sure hope you will buy the book.

Marybelle: this really is a must read!

Wanda: Thank you!

PrimaryMary: My Kindle's battery died, too, while I was reading it. I had to plug myself into an outlet (that sounded funny) to continue reading. Wasn't willing to wait for it to recharge.

Melanie: I got the first page of the second book up, "Window of Time." You might find it interesting, too.

Andrew: aren't we all exceptional--in at least some ways?

Gayle: This is a good time to start reading Julie's books.

Julie: You're very welcome! I can't wait to see who wins.

Kate: If you love fast-paced, then this will be a great read for you.

Lisa G.! I don't know if "All Fall Down" is out on CD. You can always ask "B" to read it to you while you drive around the block for a while. LOL

Melissa J. Cunningham said...

May. Dang it! MAY they always be in my favor. Good grief. Proof read please. lol

Debra Allen Erfert said...

TJ: And Julie writes walking on a thin wire 50 feet above the ground...well, at least she does it while raising 8 children. That's nearly the same thing. ;D

Melissa: You're so funny! We aaaalll let a misspell get away from us. Glad you entered.
