About the Book
Regrets are like birthdays—they keep coming, each one a new scar slowing you down and dragging you closer to your grave.
Ariel Fall, a seasoned private investigator, knew this well. After the devastating loss of his wife and young daughter, Ariel attempts to forge ahead, leaving behind the painful memories that threatened to ensnare him. But his quest for redemption proved more elusive than anticipated, and his entanglement in a series of harrowing investigations were proving rather useless, only serving to expose the darkest corners of humanity’s nature and the enigmatic depths of the human mind.
Haunted by the relentless pursuit of truth, Ariel embarks on a treacherous journey, encountering a seductive femme fatale and an enigmatic “guardian angel” along the way. As he delves deeper into the mysteries surrounding the Lavender Killer, the League of Damned, and the notorious Dirty Joe, he discovers the pervasive corruption lurking within the very heart of the London police force.
In a world where rules and morality blur, Ariel is forced to confront his own limitations and question the validity of conventional approaches. Struggling with the weight of his decisions, each one seeming to lead to his downfall, he realizes that true impact requires bending and even breaking the rules. With the specter of failure looming, Ariel must navigate treacherous waters where every choice feels like a waking nightmare.
About the Author
Albert Jaskula wrote the novel The Fall. He never imagined he could write a book after living in London for nearly a decade. Working as an assistant manager and then as a driver gave him plenty of time to contemplate and write down ideas for something unique. The plot evolved over time until it came together as a cohesive whole. His writing career began in a very unusual way. When he became a co-author of a children’s book (which has yet to be published), he realised what a joy it was to write. He soon realised that children were not his intended target. His writing style, gloom, and unusual sense of comedy are aimed at a more mature audience.
Qn 1: Can you tell us more about your book What is it about?
The story revolves around private investigator Ariel Fall. He is overcome with grief and guilt following the death of his wife and infant girl. In an attempt to reassemble his life, he devotes himself totally to his career, which provides no relief from his pain. He falls into destructive relationships with women only to discover that he is capable of feeling more than grief and fury.
Qn 2: Who do you think would be interested in this book, is it directed at any particular market?
This is a novel for fans of dark, action-packed crime stories. For individuals who appreciate meeting unusual people and learning about society’s dark secrets. But also for males to demonstrate the importance of seeking care for mental health concerns and the consequences of acting on your own.
Qn 3: Out of all the books in the world, and all the authors, which are your favourite and why?
They are far too numerous. But my personal favorite is Steig Larrson. But I also enjoy comic books, movies, and other forms of media with expressive characters.
Qn 4: What guidance would you offer to someone new, or trying to enhance their writing?
I, too, am a new author. My debut is in The Fall. As a result, I’m unable to respond to this question. I am not a figure of authority. My only piece of advice is to never give up. If someone has a story in their head that they think is interesting, they should tell it. Someone will undoubtedly be interested in hearing it.
Qn 5: Where can our readers find out more about you, do you have a website, or a way to be contacted?
