David Maine continues in his Bible groove with an original re-imagining of the story of Cain and Abel.
Beginning with the murder of Abel by Cain, Fallen rewinds to mankind's first taste of shame - through the fury and jealousy, the lust and despair - right back to that bite from the apple.
What drove Cain to do the unthinkable? What was the world like when it was new? Was God justified in banishing Adam and Eve from Paradise? And did the harshness of the outer world teach them not only how to survive but how to kill?
From the bones of this age-old tale, David Maine weaves a compulsively readable and startlingly modern human drama of love, betrayal and rage.
