The last few years have been traumatic for Sebastian Metcalfe. Since the death of his wife, he’s often struggled to keep things together, drawing support from his friends, and comfort from the routines of his job at Cossleton College of Further Education.

But now that his post as its Vice-Principal is under threat, should he move away from the seaside town he’s made his home? And whether he stays or goes, isn’t it time to follow the advice of someone close to him, and “bloody well start living again”?

Falling is the story of Seb’s journey back from despair and self-pity - and of the part he plays in uncovering a dark secret that will have a profound effect on everyone around him.
