it was amazing
Read from April 07 to 18, 2012

Second read of this one - now perhaps my favorite of the trilogy. Brings things to a close satisfactorily and does a good job of going back through main points of the earlier storylines so someone could read this stand-alone. The characters are great, true to form, the story is detailed but all three are. Excellent story from all aspects, the personal drama, the police investigation and the journalist expose.

Kelly Usually when I re-read a series, or even read a final book after a long break from the rest, I re-read the whole series. I picked up this book at the airport, so didn't have the opportunity to do that. I've read the series before and always considered the first book to be the best one. This time around, I really have to say that the last book is superb. It is well-written and contains snippets of the previous stories to allow the reader to be re-acquainted with the details without having to go back to the previous books.

Krista I completely agree, the third book was my favorite and I felt very satisfied with choices the author made in wrapping up the series.

Kelly I think that is unusual, which is likely why I always re-read the whole series if there has been a lag. Often, you are left with all the questions, no answers and can't remember the finer points of the initial story. It's not even about liking the ending (although I did), because it can be a bad ending but still at least answer the questions and wrap up the whole story.

I keep going back to how detailed this book was as well, so making it even more difficult to come to a good conclusion in the final book. Sad that this author was cut short in life!
