**** As read on BBC Radio 4 Book at Bedtime ****
Luke is a young playwright: intense, magnetic and hungry for experience. Fleeing a disastrous upbringing in the North East he arrives in London and shares a flat with Paul, an aspiring producer, and beautiful, fiery Leigh.
The three of them set up a radical theatre company, their friendship forged in rehearsal rooms above pubs, candlelit power cuts, and smoky late-night parties, part of a thrilling new generation of writers, directors and rising voices.
When Nina, a fragile actress, strays towards their group, Luke recognises a damaged soul and the balance between the friends is threatened. Luke is torn between loyalty, desire and his own painful past, until everything he values, even the promise of the future, is in danger. Suddenly the fallout threatens to be immense.

"An intoxicating and immersive read... It is a fraught and compelling novel; one that replays itself uncomfortably in the mind long after it is finished" (Lucy Atkins Sunday Times)
"Intense... Ms Jones is unflinching as she plots the course of fallout with no shelter, of wounded lives undone by desperation in love and art" (Carmela Ciuraru New York Times)
"Written with a precision and a level of descriptive subtlety that puts her up there with our foremost novelists. I can't help but feel that if she had been born Samuel Jones she would already be considered on a par with the Barneses and McEwans of this parish... Fallout is crafted with a pared-back delicacy and attention to detail that shows an author determined to do better with every sentence. And at the same time, there is an intensity of focus, a merciless yet empathetic gaze directed towards each of the main characters that ensures we care deeply about each of them" (Elizabeth Day Observer)
"Hugely enjoyable... Fallout is both deliciously gobble-able and carefully constructed... A thoroughly pleasurable read" (Holly Williams Independent on Sunday)
"An intelligent, pacy tale... Every summer needs a One Day-style read; this book is a contender for that crown" (Anne Ashworth The Times)
"Absorbing and romantic... Will drag you in and keep you there until the very last page" (Mernie Gilmore Daily Express)
"Life-enhancing and compelling" (Di Speirs Psychologies)
"An emotionally charged fourth novel from Jones" ( Glamour)
"Cements her reputation as a writer in the style of William Boyd: able to take on a variety of styles and mould them to her own voice" (Viv Groskop Red)
"Jones has artfully captured the era and the febrile atmosphere of London theatreland" (Carla McKay Daily Mail)
Four young people in 1970s’ London fuelled by love, betrayal and creative ambition
