In Falling, Christopher Pike explores the depth and breadth of human emotion through two brilliantly etched characters: Kelly Feinman, who pays a terrible price to understand the nature of true evil; and Matt Connor, a classic anti-hero who captures the reader’s sympathy.
 
Kelly Feinman:  Once a brilliant FBI profiler and field agent, Kelly went rogue on her last case, hunting the serial killer known as the Acid Man.  Now, still recovering from the madman’s brutal assault, regarded by her fellow agents as a weak link, Kelly struggles to find her footing on a new case: the kidnapping of an infant, Jimmy Techer.  Making matters worse, Kelly’s husband has taken their daughter and left.  Kelly fears she cannot even trust her own instincts.
 
Matt Connor:  Deeply in love with his girlfriend, Matt is devastated when Amy leaves him for another man.  He plots a diabolical revenge that begins with his apparent death.  By the time Matt is through, Amy—Jimmy’s mother—will know the intensity of Matt’s pain, because it will have become her own.  And Matt…Matt will pass through the fires of hell and, in the eyes of baby Jimmy, will recover his soul.
 
Matt Connor is a kidnapper.  Kelly Feinman is the agent on his trail.  They should be enemies.  Instead, they become friends, and together, they help each other become whole.

For a long time he had come out of unconsciousness to a feeling of loss in his chest, and he had come to accept it as inevitable. It was ironic that the pain was quickly followed by a wave of love. Thoughts of her smile and hair caught forever in a yellow ray of sunshine. He still loved Amy Techer, always would, and he hated her more than words could say.

That morning was special because it was the start of the day Matt planned to fake his death and disappear from the face of the
