His wife has left him to wrestle with his demons. Alone, Reed is tormented by the fear he may have caused the suicide of an innocent man suspected of murdering a two-year-old girl.
Reed's friend on the case is legendary San Francisco homicide inspector Walt Sydowski, who has one of California's highest clearance rates. He is also a lonely widower haunted by the fact he cannot solve the girl's heartbreaking death. Both men grapple with the past while they race the clock to learn the truth behind several new abductions that have anguished the Bay Area in this acclaimed thriller set in the late 1990s.

The characters were so believable and interesting to get to know. The multiple POV's brought such depth and intrigue to the story progression. It is not often that I find myself reading each line in a story, but I can say that about this one. This author does an amazing job of putting just enough detail and background into the story to give you perspective without boring you.
Rick Mofina is definitely an author I will keep on my TBR list.
So all you readers out there who enjoy a well written and plotted thriller, you need to pick up a copy of "If Angels Fall". You will not be disappointed.
I hope that some day I will see movies out there based on the stories written by Mr.
I am adding another review to this one to hopefully right a wrong - this review is many months later!
As I went through the reviews to Rick Mofina's "If Angels Fall" - I was struck with shock when I read that he used the f-word throughout the book. The main reason that I love his books is because he doesn't use that type of language. I decided to do a search for the word. I had read the book, as a matter of fact twice, and could not remember being bothered by that word as I don't like it either. Well, the search confirmed that the word was only used once throughout the entire book (and I think used by the antagonist), so I don’t understand the negative review??? It is unfortunate when there is an unfair review that stops others from purchasing and reading books by that author - especially when it's incorrect. I just don't understand the review! True, the initial copy did have spelling errors but that was cleared up and a new edition was published. I almost let this matter go as I wasn't sure what to do about it - but the unfairness of it finally really got to me and I had to state so to set the record straight. I loved this book and I did read it twice. It was lovely. I thought Rick Mofina did a wonderful job of all of the characters. I really do commend him for plotting without the need for gory descriptions and filthy language, as so many other authors use. His books are real for me as he uses so many fairly normal situations that we could all find ourselves in. True, he turns them into opportunities for suspense for his readers. Without those, could there be a book?? So, anyway, for what it's worth - and I do hope this review will be read by those readers who do wish to purchase the book - any of his books!! You'll not be disappointed. They are clean, super interesting, very suspenseful and always have a surprising ending. Enjoy!!

First off - first half of the book has a number of mistakes and layout issues. There is an instance where Keller is "threading a chair through eyelets" (should be CHAIN) and several places where there needs to be a couple of lines of space, because the scene has changed. Made it a bit confusing when you read straight on to a new perspective and characters.
The topic was a black one (child abductions and references to sexual abuse) but, not having kids, I think I was detached enough from it emotionally to take the book as just being a decent detective novel.
Main bugbear was the final 30 or 40 pages of the book. A situation that was supposed to be tense was spoiled by the old TMI. Note to author - when you are trying to build tension - go easy on how many words you pack in to describe what is going on. I ended up skim reading pages to get to the exciting stuff.
Otherwise - a pretty good book and will read more by the author.
Danny Becker gets separated from his dad on a busy train. Ends up on the platform and picked up by strong hands who run with him and he disappears.
The news of the abduction brings back bad memories for Tom of the last case he worked on for the newspaper he worked for. He covers this story for a last chance of redemption and in the hopes of healing his family life for the sake of his son Zach. Tom's on my friend is the lead detective who feels like he's failed by not being able to solve the little girls abduction is put on the case to solve Danny's disappearance. Working together Tom and Walt grapple with the past and a race to save not only Danny but Zach and another little girl Gabriella.
Will things work this time and will they catch the perpetrator before the ultimate act?
I have read Rick Mofina before and his books are interesting with plenty good background information to fill in any blank spots in characters life's beforehand. Fast paced in all the right places and very informative.
My problem with this book is children, I rail from anything where children might be harmed (and I suspect one was about to be) so I gave up before I got very far at all. But that doesn't mean it isn't a good book so, in some ways an effort to oppose those idiot reviews who review a book as one-star saying they haven't read it, I'm going on reputation and reviewing this one as good :)
