• Fell: A strange incident on the night of the senior prom changes John Fell's entire life, leading him to enroll in an exclusive private school under an assumed name.
• Fell Back: When a classmate at his exclusive private school falls to his death from a tower, seventeen-year-old John Fell is determined to find out whether the incident was suicide, accident, or murder.
• Fell Down: Fell returns to investigate the cause of the death of Dib, his best friend, an investigation that involves the demented murderous dummy of a ventriloquist and the diary of a man who had disappeared twenty years earlier.
The Book of Fells brings together all three of M.E. Kerr's gripping tales of the "working-class" teen who falls in with the wrong crowd at a prestigious prep school. The complete text of Fell; Fell Back; and Fell Down PW called the last title "absorbing" and "smoothly crafted" are included in this paperback volume.
