Fall Into Darkness
Transcript of Fall Into Darkness
By: Christopher Pike Fall Into Darkness is a suspenseful read, perfect for anyone who loves a little mystery, and a lot of unexpected twists. The Characters:
Hanover Ann Ann Rice hates Sharon McKay. Ann and Sharon used to be best friends, until Ann's brother Jerry killed himself because he loved Sharon and she didn't love him back. This drives Ann to frame Sharon for her murder by jumping off a cliff and making it look like Sharon pushed her. Ann's plan is to live, and to let Sharon take the blame. Ann is beautiful, rich, and smart, but she is not happy with her life. She is engaged to Paul. Ann is vengeful and deceitful. Sharon Sharon McKay has no idea that Ann blames her for the death of
Jerry. Sharon is an amazing musician. She has a scholarship for
piano. When Sharon gets framed for Ann's murder, her entire life
falls apart when she's thrown into jail and a trial is held. Sharon is very sweet, and popular. She dated Jerry a few times, but she
never knew that he loved her, so she is completely oblivious to
Ann's true feelings toward her. Sharon thinks they are best friends. Chad Chad Lear has been Ann and Sharon's friend for a long time. He was best friends with Jerry. He is super friendly and is always happy. He is well liked by both Sharon and Ann. He was the one who introduced Ann and Paul, who is Chad's brother. However, Chad has a secret that no one ever would have expected. Paul Paul Lear is Chad Lear's brother, and is engaged to
Ann. Paul is very loyal to Ann, as he helps her with her
plan to frame Sharon. However, Paul cannot refuse Ann.
He gave her a ton of reasons why she shouldn't go
along with her plan, but in the end, he did what she
asked him to do. Paul is very handsome, yet an event later
in the book shows that he can be easily broken, despite
having had been in the army before. Fred Fred is Sharon's boyfriend in the novel, but a few things he says and does prove him to be kind of a jerk. Fred is quiet and withdrawn. He doesn't have as much of a significant role in the book than the other characters, but he is important. John John Richmond is Sharon's lawyer for her trial.
He is very confident in his ability to always win
his cases. John is described by Sharon as being
sly and smooth. He also keeps everyone on the edge
of their seat during the entire trial. John is
easy going and is good at making people feel comfortable. Hanover Hanover is the prosecutor for
Sharon's trial. Hanover is a
very serious woman who sucks
at being manipulative. She
tries too hard to affect the
thoughts of the jury during
Sharon's trial. Hanover is ill-
tempered, and does not like John
because of his relaxed nature. CHRISTOPHER PIKE They said she murdered her best friend. The trial is for murder. Ann Rice is dead. Her best friend, Sharon McKay stands accused. But there is no body. And the three witnesses to the crime only heard what happened, and did not see it. Nevertheless, the prosecution is almost certain of victory. Ann was alone in the dark with Sharon on top of the cliff when Ann fell the 500 feet into the torrential river that claimed her life. There was only one route leading to the cliff, and all the witnesses can remember hearing the girls arguing before the fall occured. Sharon's only defense is that Ann comitted suicide. But everyone who knew Ann, including Sharon, said she was not the suicidal type. And they were right. Ann was much more than suicidal. She was obsessed. Christopher Pike is the pseudonym (pen name) of Kevin McFadden (born November, 1954), an American writer. He is a bestselling author of young adult and children's fiction. His expertise is the thriller genre. He was born in New York, but grew up in California where he lives today. He dropped out of college and- prior to becoming a recognized author- worked in a factory, painted houses, and programmed computers. His interests include astronomy, meditation, reading, running, and surfing.
Initially, McFadden had set out to write science fiction and adult mysteries, but was unsuccessful. Fortunately, his work caught the attention of an editor who suggested he write a teen thriller.
It would not be accurate to limit McFadden to just the horror genre. His books often include elements of science fiction, spirituality, and mystery. Traces of Egyptian, Greek and Hindu mythology can also be found. McFadden acknowledges Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov, Robert A. Heinlein, Agatha Christie and Stephen King as influences.
