The Woman on the Ledge Summary

A woman falls to her death from a London bank’s twenty-fifth-floor roof terrace.

You’re arrested for her murder.

You tell the police that you only met the victim the previous night at your office party. She was threatening to jump from the roof, but you talked her down.

You’ve got nothing to do with this tragedy.
You’re clearly being framed.

So why do the police keep picking holes in your story? Even your lawyer doesn’t seem to believe you.

It soon becomes obvious that you’re keeping secrets.

But who are you trying to protect? And why?

The Woman on the Ledge Review

I was hooked from page one. This is a wonderful example of a twisty thriller.

A woman is arrested and as she communicates with her lawyer, the reader is slowly given the details of what happened.

The characters are well-written with a fast pace as the story delves into hidden secrets and teenage angst. I loved that this book kept me guessing the characters motives and actions.

I adored the friendship between a few of the characters as they share a common threat.

A cleverly written plot and a wonderful read.
