Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is really a very good book. I picked it up three days ago and couldn't put it down. It's a wonderful potboiler/page-turner about a deeply troubled man who starts snatching kids in San Francisco, with the story hinging on the clock-is-ticking attempts by homicide detectives and a crime reporter to catch the bad guy before he strikes again. From the very first chapter, the story is full of fast-paced, plot-driven suspense and some very well drawn characters, particularly Tom Reed, the cop reporter and Walt Sydowski, the veteran homicide cop. The author has an excellent grasp of newsrooms and police investigative techniques. He cuts to the truth about reporters and the way they do their job, how they detach themselves from a subject and how mercenary they are in pursuit of a story, even in the most awful of circumstances. Tom Reed is the book's hero, but one with his own set of personal flaws. The books takes the reader inside the homicide squad, and gives excellent detail about how cops solve crimes. The San Francisco setting is used to great effect. This novel is full of cool, unexpected plot twists. The story hangs together beautifully, right down to the final pages, with Mofina working in little bits of new detail with every progression in the plot. It's a first novel, and a fine one.

Having had the wonderful opportunity to meet Mr. Mofina when he came into my store to do a signing, I had decided to read this book before meeting him, so I could spread the word on the title and the story before his arrival.
Wow.
First off, this book is packed with Mr. Mofina's background in criminal reporting. The crime, the police, the journalists, all of them spring to life and are very plausible. Moreover, he handles not only the adults with skill but grants us a realistic use of youth and children - something many writers fail to accomplish.
This book is a page-turner. I started it and finished it in one sitting, unable to put it aside. The cliff-hanger had me on the edge of my seat (literally), and the story was deeply moving. You can feel for someone who has lost his children, even when he has snapped and now wishes to get them back through murder... Sympathetic villains are hard to do, but Mofina does it well.
I hear word of a sequel, and can't wait to see it.

When I ordered IF ANGELS FALL it was because I was looking for another new author I could add to my list of favorites. Well, I definitely found one. Rick Mofina is a genius, and this book is simply awesome!
The plot is gripping and the characters seem to jump off the pages at you, making it impossible to put this one down. I loved the way he made the whole story come together and unravel in front of my eyes so I couldn't even guess how it would end. I loved this book, and will of course read all of his others now.
If you love a good crime novel full of suspense and intrigue, I highly recommend you buy this book now. I promise, you won't regret it!

I downloaded this free book thinking I had found a great new author. Stupid me, I read the reviews after that and found that the author has a great liking for the f word. I will definitely not read a book with language like this and am finding that a great many others feel the same way. Also noted all the typos and spelling issues as this is very ANNOYING. Note to authors - spell check only catches actual errors not uses of the wrong words. Duh. Find an editor and/or proofreader. How can this author have so many novels and be popular?

I started this book and found it very interesting but after a while I became tired of trying to figure out what the missing letters and word were that had been cut off at the end of the line. I just decided not to continue with the book and deleted it from my drive.

So many typos, it was ridiculous. I thought books were supposed to be proof read. Terrible. Better luck next time.

For more than a decade, Rick Mofina was one of Canada's top crime journalists. Now with the publication of his first novel, If Angels Fall, Mofina is well on his way to becoming one of North America's top crime fiction writers. As a journalist, Mofina was a conscientious craftsman and storyteller par excellence. Now he's transferred those skills to the fiction arena. If Angels Fall is a tightly written murder/suspense novel whose protagonist, Tom Reed, is a journalist with a conscience. Mofina manages to take the chilling subject of child abduction and turn it into a eerily fascinating read. He's learned his lessons well by studying the works of novelists like Mary Higgins Clark. The scene is set perfectly in San Francisco. The plot is carefully constructed and the pace accelerates throughout the book. With an ear for the catchy phrase, the book's dialogue, along with some idiosyncratic characterizations, carries the story right to the end. It's a page-turner. In a profile for his hometown newspaper, Mofina said that for now, his book stands on paperback shelves near the works of King, Koontz, Patterson, Deaver, Kellerman and other legends in book stores across North America. So it should. It belongs there. Mofina has signed a contract for two more books during the next couple of years. As he becomes a seasoned novelist, be confident readers can count are more bestsellers from this hard-working, insightful writer.
