Editorial Review

"Fradkin does a nice job in combining the elements of a good murder mystery with the telling of the story through Rick's character...Constant tension between the narrator and the world around him is one of the novel's greatest strengths...Though The Fall Guy is an easy read targeted at adult readers, it could work in a grade 11 or 12 literature class, particularly the workplace stream. The novel deals with the themes of stereotypes and class-bias that could prove useful for discussion. It also deals with how different people with different intellectual capacities use language to construct meaning, which would also prov[e] useful for discussion. Recommended."
