All Fall Down

Julie Coulter

Rafe Kelly is a Navy SEAL home from Afghanistan to recuperate from his injuries, in particular a knee injury. His younger brother, Vince is the acting CEO of Axis, Inc. in Hartford Ct., a computer forensics company on the verge of catapulting to the forefront of the industry while their father is in the hospital. Rafe doesn't particularly care for the business world but agrees to meet Vince at his office. He never gets there, as he unexpectedly finds himself in a hostage situation with a former SEAL teammate. Terror arrives on native soil with a bomb.

Enter Claire Michaels, hostage negotiator.  Claire is capable and feisty in her own right. Her family life contains its share of skeletons to deal with, and each has its effect on Claire. Claire and Rafe survive their initial encounter of the hostage situation, but their paths are destined to cross again!

Ms. Bellon is a master builder of international suspense with just a smidgeon of romance to wet the readers' appetites. Her characters are written with such depth that the reader is easily immersed in their emotions and reality as they face circumstances in actual locations few readers will ever see. Bellon’s writing style engages the reader so well that one actually feels the situation rather merely reading it. “All Fall Down” is an energetic read that guarantees satisfaction for the romantic as well as the adventurous reader!
