Editorial Reviews

Review

"Huber maintains consistency in her voicing of Lily, and she reads in various South American accents to denote local characters... And, when necessary, Huber imparts a chilling tone to the story, which will appeal to fans of the earlier novel." - Booklist
"...a fresh and welcome addition to the noir landscape...expect many more bleakly elegant pages from Davidson in the future." - Los Angeles Review of Books
"Lily Moore is one of the most appealing 'amateur' sleuths I've encountered in years. The vivid sense of place - Peru, in this case - is everything one would expect from a seasoned travel journalist like Hilary Davidson, the story is deliciously twisty, the characters engaging. I know I can't be the only reader looking forward to more Moore." - Laura Lippman, New York Times bestselling author of I'd Know You Anywhere
"An atmospheric mystery with an ending that packs a punch. Lily Moore is a passionate and tenacious heroine." - Meg Gardiner, author of The Nightmare Thief
"Hilary Davidson knocks it out of the park. If this book doesn't get your motor running, have someone check you for a pulse." - Reed Farrel Coleman, three-time Shamus Award-winning author of Hurt Machine

Format: Hardcover
The Next One to Fall is Hilary Davidson's follow up to her debut mystery, The Damage Done, and takes place in the months following the events of the first novel. Travel journalist Lily Moore is dealing with the aftereffects of a personal tragedy involving her sister, and accompanies a friend on a trip to Peru as a way to get away from her life - and the things that haunt her - in New York.

Against the backdrop of the ancient Incan ruins of Machu Picchu, Lily finds herself caught up in the mysterious death of a woman who reminds her of her sister, and quickly becomes involved in what transpires. With the local authorities quick to write off the death because of the victim's disreputable background, Lily - possessing first-hand information of the victim's last moments - decides the woman's death needs closer investigation. Far from home, she becomes ensnared in a complex drama involving members of a wealthy American family and the people who work for them, risking her own safety as she becomes more deeply involved.

The plot moves at a rapid pace, with many unexpected twists as the story unfolds. A diverse cast of characters, a compelling plot, and lots of interesting bits of Peruvian culture, history and local color mix nicely to create a story that briskly moves toward a highly suspenseful climax. Hilary Davidson has upped her game with The Next One to Fall, and - ending the novel on a note of things to come - makes the idea of a third book in this series something to await with anticipation.

After appreciating the high bar set with her debut novel, The Damage Done, I approached Hilary Davidson's new novel with great anticipation, tinged with a hint of trepidation. Not to worry; her second novel starring Lily Moore fulfilled my anticipation and left me eager for more. No spoilers here, but the continuing insight into what makes Lily tick, and the fragile state of her ongoing emotional recovery, provide the heartbeat of what makes this novel shine. The use of Peru as the venue for the action was grounded in well-executed exposition, and Lily's propensity for jumping headfirst into situations of all kinds was nicely played off against the positively charged persona of her traveling companion and best friend, Jesse Robb. A compelling read, and a worthy sequel to her breakthrough novel. Nicely done, Hilary!

Format: Hardcover
Winner of the Anthony Award, Hilary Davidson writes a follow-up to her debut novel "The Damage Done" with another great thriller.

Lily Moore, unable to shake the guilt of her sister's death and relentlessly badgered by her best friend Jesse Robb, agrees to dust herself off and get back to her work as a travel writer. Jesse and Lily have worked together on several assignments travelling to far off places: Lily writing and Jesse taking photographs for freelance work and tourist magazines. So now, Lily finds herself hiking through the wet jungles of Peru in search of Machu Picchu and wondering what on earth she's gotten herself into this time.

Standing at the edge of the ancient city watching the sun rise, Lily and Jesse hear an ear-curdling scream and immediately run toward the sound only to find a woman's body crumpled below the immense stone staircase. While Jesse runs to find help, Lily stays to comfort the woman and ends up hearing the last words of a dying woman, words that incriminate her missing boyfriend. The man that Lily witnesses running from the top of the stairs.

After trying to get the local police to treat the fall as a murder rather than the suicide of a drug addict, Lily is determined to investigate by herself to prove it's murder. This is a decision both she and Jesse will soon regret as they find themselves the recipients of death threats and attempted murder in order to keep them from achieving their goal.

Lily discovers the depths which a madman will go to protect his family especially when one of them is a murderer...or maybe more than one.

With "The Next One to Fall" Hilary Davidson takes her readers on a rollercoaster ride from one thrilling situation to the next. She deftly writes a story that will have you thinking you've got it all figured out only to throw you off into another direction until her final reveal. Davidson is definitely a writer to watch.

8 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Katrina E. Niidas Holm on February 28, 2012
Format: Hardcover
Travel writer Lily Moore and her best friend, photographer Jesse Robb, traveled to Peru to see the sights, hike the Inca Trail, and shake off the dark cloud that's been trailing Lily ever since tragedy rocked her world just three months prior. It seems a carefree vacation is not the cards for the pair, however, for when they reach Machu Picchu, they happen across a woman clinging to life in the ruins. Jesse runs to get help, but the woman's beyond saving, and before she passes, she tells Lily the name of her killer and implores her to share this information with the police.

The local authorities conduct a brief investigation and ultimately rule the death an accident, but Lily's convinced there's more to the story. Jesse begs her to let the matter drop, but Lily refuses, and before long, the two find themselves ensnared in a web the likes of which they may never escape - a web of violence, lies, money, and murder.

The Next One to Fall is the sequel to author Hilary Davidson's stellar debut, The Damage Done, and it's quite simply a fantastic read. Equal parts action-adventure thriller and classic paranoia tale (with a touch of Peruvian travelogue thrown in for good measure), Davidson's latest is an intelligent, atmospheric, heart-stopping tour-de-force, guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat. The prose is graceful, the pace is electric, and the mystery will keep you guessing until the very end.
