The Fall Will Probably Kill You! (a love story) (Paperback)
"McMahon has concocted a taut thriller with twists and turns that start from the very beginning and don't let up. Most of all, he has created a memorable cast, none of whom is without flaws. . . . Something else he does well? He leaves us wanting more. . . . We can only hope the rest of their tale is forthcoming-and that it will be as good a read as this one." -Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"A book as thoughtful and charming as it is entertaining. Finally a DC mystery I can actually care about." - Gary Shteyngart, New York Times bestselling author of Our Country Friends
Teddy Thompson has loved Charlotte Pennington since 2nd grade math class. When both of them end up at Georgetown, Teddy believes the fates have aligned-until Charlotte falls for his roommate, Braden Edwards. Charlotte's father, the Senator, with one eye on Teddy and the other on the White House, devises a way to get both of them the future they've always imagined. Meanwhile, an investigation ensues that could implicate all of the story's major players. Teddy will do anything to preserve his place in the hearts of the Penningtons. How far is he willing to go?
A tale of power and manipulation, of fixation and delusion, The Fall Will Probably Kill You (a love story) twists and turns its way to a daunting precipice.
"I was in awe of Charlotte and the man who brought her into the world. Everything within their reach, distorting reality until it fit their eye. And I was part of the fit. I was a piece, essential, loved."
