Peter M. Talty’s The Jackals’ Fall is a fictional tale that mirrors the inordinate pursuit of wealth, the rollercoaster ride of love, friendship, and betrayal. It’s great when a writer can take a simple plot and spin an intriguing story around it, and that’s what Peter does in this book.

The Jackals’ Fall is not your typical on-the-edge-of-your-seat or heart-racing thriller; its slow-burn approach heightens the suspense. Readers will find the situations the characters end up in entertaining, creating a compelling story in its own way. From the humorous undertone it starts with to the tragic extreme it swings to, this engaging book delivers what you might consider T.V. material. I love how Peter adopts an accessible, conversational, and free-flowing writing style that sucks you in easily and helps you get through the story quickly. Another place where I feel Peter gets it right is with his character development. This fascinating book is brimming with relatable characters whose lives spotlight particularly familiar tendencies and challenges.

I love how The Jackals’ Fall catches readers off-guard with the disturbing turn of events you wouldn’t have predicted at the start of the story. It’s a perfect reflection of how life can get really messy real quick. This suspenseful book is an entertaining read that crime thriller readers will enjoy from start to finish.
