In this stunning debut novel, a Kenyan expat living the American dream with her husband and adopted son soon finds it marred by child trafficking, scandal, and a problematic past.

Mugure and Zack seem to have the picture-perfect family: a young, healthy son, a beautiful home in Riverdale, New York, and a bright future. But one night, as Mugure is rummaging through an old drawer, she comes across a piece of paper with a note scrawled on it—a note that calls into question everything she’s ever believed about her husband . . .

A wandering curiosity may have gotten the best of Mugure this time as she heads down a dan­gerous road that takes her back to Kenya, where new discoveries threaten to undo her idyllic life. She wonders if she ever really knew the man she married and begins to piece together the signs that were there since the beginning. Who was that suspicious man who trailed Zack and Mugure on their first date at a New York nightclub? What about the closing of the agency that facilitated the adoption of their son?

The Fall of Saints tackles real-life political and ethical issues through a striking, beautifully rendered story. This extraordinary novel will tug at your heart and keep it racing until the end.

    Chaitra

    I should have run for the hills looking at the ratings on GR, but I didn’t check it before requesting this turkey on NetGalley. More fool me. I agree with the other reviewers, this book makes no sense. I mean,

    1. The “mystery” in the book starts when a bored suburban housewife gets tired of shopping, pokes around in her husband’s pant pockets, finds a paper piece with a number and her adopted son’s name on it. She screams conspiracy. It gets worse, this trouser pocket paper thing. Next she finds

    1. The “mystery” in the book starts when a bored suburban housewife gets tired of shopping, pokes around in her husband’s pant pockets, finds a paper piece with a number and her adopted son’s name on it. She screams conspiracy. It gets worse, this trouser pocket paper thing. Next she finds a paper with a man’s name crossed out, and this “intelligent” person thinks that proves that her husband is keeping company with this said man who she also thinks without much reason is bad.

    2. The lady who sees conspiracies in paper notes remarkably keeps her trust in her husband even when suited gunmen demand documents from him and tell them they’ll keep their eye on him. Oh no, he’s good as gold. Every one else? Well, they’re Mafia because they’re second generation Italians.

    3. Once she’s started to see bad things everywhere, she confides in a friend of hers who happens to be a cop. He tries to put reason into her head, but does she listen? And when something bad happens, her immediate reaction is to think – I confided in a cop, something terrible happened. So the cop must be to blame. Never mind that the cop had no clue about anything before she told him. Also, lets really not look at the husband. He can’t have anything to do with it, right?

    4. Every man she speaks to has designs on her. Because she’s gorgeous, she’s got a way with guns. Arrogant thing. She has intelligence too – she reminds us that at every possible opportunity. Never mind that every male hooks up with someone else pretty quickly and good for him.

    5. Everything is repeated twice. One man says, abc vanished and xyz thinks heroine is crazy and has to be committed. Two paragraphs later, heroine thinks, “why did abc vanish? why did xyz think that she’s crazy?”, to hammer in the suspense I suppose. Never mind that there’s no suspense, any sane person would think she’s crazy.

    6. Two people say the same thing, they must be in communication. And it’s never for good purposes. Oh no. It must be because they’re out to get her because she’s getting close to whatever crap thing she’s looking for.

    7. She gets together with two friends in her quest for answers. One is a defense attorney who has intimate knowledge of the people involved in this case, and who has a personal axe to grind with one of the ringleaders. The other is an investigative reporter who reports on exactly the kind of stories that this thing has the potential to be. Guess who is the person who has the right questions, the right attitude, the timing, the cojones to do actual investigative work? Yep. The bored suburban housewife who wouldn’t recognize common sense if it danced in front of her in a tea-cozy.

    8. She cracks the mystery, of course. How? By having the bad guys keep around incriminating evidence or speak of it in terms only slightly short of a neon sign. For example, a suited gunman asks for a “document” off her husband on their first date. At a later point, a “document” is used to humiliate a do-gooder Catholic nun. Since both are “documents” they must be linked, right? Of course they are. Never mind that our heroine has no reason to think her husband has ever set foot in Africa before her honeymoon. Similarly, someone speaks of a brown folder with some incriminating evidence. When she breaks into this place what else should she find lying around looking innocent (despite having a filing cabinet that’s locked)? That’s right. A brown folder. With incriminating evidence.

    The writing is pedestrian, the plot is silly beyond compare. I wish I could say I wanted to throw my Kindle at the wall. I can’t, because I kept reading it in horrified fascination. That’s the reason for the 1 star, the unintentional hilarity.

    The subject matter is substantial in this novel. The author tells how babies are trafficked in Kenya by way of women signing away their uteruses. The women are held in a life of slavery of artificial insemination and fear. Human trafficking and slavery in order to supply the demand of adoptable babies and much more sinister activity is the theme.

    The progression of the novel and the way it evolved had me scratching my head. The protagonist is a Kenyan citizen who marries a first generation Estonian immigrant. They fail to conceive and adopt a toddler they name Kobi. There is extraneous detail about the Kenyan father who had little to do with his daughter besides paying for her from afar and the Estonian father and grandfather that had tenuous ties to the story. Also a component of Caucasian man being evil and enslaving the black people but I found little evidence of this through the story besides anecdotal snippets. This argument just seemed out of place in the novel but the characters kept bringing it up. It was a near non-sequitur.

    Although the subject is important, as I mentioned, the protagonist begins her Maverick quest when she bores of shopping in high end Manhatten stores and accidentally stumbles upon a torn piece of paper with her son’s name on it, a company name, and a phone number, written by her husband. Suddenly, that cryptic and meaningless paper becomes the catalyst for her running around New York, seeking answers without having the first idea about the question because the clues are not enough to make a sane woman disrupt her meaningless shopping schedule to do so.

    Naturally, by the end of the novel, her irrational suspicions of foul play to an adoption which she had absolutely no involvement in procuring (Hello? How involved would YOU be in the adoption of your child?) and she ends up in Ohio with an ex boyfriend (inappropriate and non sequitur) where she entrusts her son to virtual strangers and runs off to Kenya and transforms herself from rich, soccer mom to sharp shooter that everybody wants to kill. The leaps induced whip lash. My neck is still aching.

    Bottom line is that I read it as an ARC so I reserve final judgment but IMHO, it needs a lot of work to be believable

    When I requested this book I had no expectations except that it would be fiction. I liked the blurb.It turned out to be a mystery novel. The book started well, though I thought the characters were not convincing enough. Mughue was lovely but did not portray herself as a beautiful woman. Certainly, Zach her husband was too perfect. Friends they encountered were all too celluloid and unbelievable. So here is the plot: beautiful African woman falls in love with successful lawyer in America and they start to live happily after. That was the beginning. Everything perfect. Maybe the author wanted us to be lulled into this mood of middle class happiness. Then the arrival of Kobi. Another happy event to complete their happy marriage. WHAM – events start happening, piling up – unpeeling with no answers. Things start to get difficult. The middle of this story worried me greatly; a situation where men stand with guns over their heads threatening them out of the blue. Suddenly, the absence of Zach, away on business – the friendship of an old acquaintance from College days from the Police Department. I could go on and on. Oh yes, there is a best friend, a wonderful singer, entertainer and so close to the protagonist. The reader trusts her implicitly. Things don’t measure up. Friends are suspects. The suspense was fine and it was threatening; it kept me on my toes for a few chapters. However there were incidents when the situation was forced and not real. Just action packed in for the sake of action. Overflowing without need. The scenes in Kenya were descriptive and powerful. However this novel has the potential to be better. The element of suspense was fine but some of the situations that the characters were facing felt unreal and totally ridiculous. Far more editing needed to change from a mediocre story to a really good story.
    I give this novel 2 stars.
