Description

Hilary Davidson'sThe Next One to Fall takes place three months after the events of her debut novel, the Anthony Award-winningThe Damage Done.
Travel writer Lily Moore has been persuaded by her closest friend, photographer Jesse Robb, to visit Peru with him. Jesse is convinced that the trip will lure Lily out of her dark mood, but Lily is haunted by betrayal and loss. At Machu Picchu, the famous Lost City of the Incas, they discover a woman clinging to life at the bottom of an ancient stone staircase. Just before the woman dies, she tells Lily the name of the man who pushed her.

When the local police investigate, the forensic evidence they find doesn't match what Lily knows. Unable to accept the official ruling of accidental death, Lily hunts down the wealthy man who was the dead woman's traveling companion and discovers a pattern of dead and missing women in his wake.

Obsessed with getting justice for these women, Lily sets in motion a violent chain of events that will have devastating consequences.

Editorial Reviews

Will leave you breathless, and not just because of the Andes' high altitude. [Davidson's] determined young travel writer propels the exciting plot like a rocket.


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.


Davidson delivers an exhilirating view of Machu Picchu as well as an exciting plot that revolves around a woman lost in the throes of grief.


An atmospheric mystery with an ending that packs a punch. Lily Moore is a passionate and tenacious heroine.


Hilary Davidson knocks it out of the park. If this book doesn't get your motor running, have someone check you for a pulse.
