When she receives a terrifying message from him, Lucy reaches the frightening conclusion that he's missing and possibly in his mother's clutches.

Gone to Die, book 3 of the Lucy Kendall series, is Ms. Stacy Green’s MASTERPIECE! My goodness! How many times have you noticed a distinct drop in quality as a series progresses? Well, not so with Ms. Green’s Lucy Kendall series. Each of the books is better than the one before, and that is saying a lot as both All Good Deed

Coulda, shoulda – didn’t. That’s about what Lucy Kendall keeps thinking after her friend Chris Hale disappears. Mired deeply in the emotional morass of her own making, Lucy had given Chris the brush-off, eventually letting his calls roll to voice mail. When she finally listens to his messages, she learns that he has been in contact with his serial killer-mother, Mary Weston, and has gone to meet her. He wants answers, he says. Worse, his last message cuts off with the sounds of gunfire. If only ...more
With Lucy Kendall finally gaining justice for Justin, she felt the depression take over – her past was full of darkness; her mind struggles intense. When friend Chris Hale continued to try to phone her and she didn’t pick up, Lucy didn’t expect him to go off on his own. But that’s just what he did – searching for his mother, the evil serial killer Mary Weston. His cryptic messages on Lucy’s phone told a terrifying story; then when he wouldn’t answer his phone, she knew she needed to find him bef ...more

Gone to Die is the third book in the Lucy Kendall series. And each one has been an enthralling read; a catch your breath in your throat read; a rollercoaster of a read that has you sitting on the edge of your seat.

Loved this book. Lucy Kendal has to fight herself as well as a serial killer to save her friend. The story kept me entertained.

Thank you Badass Marketing and Stacy Green for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Lucy has fallen into a deep hole of depression only bringing herself out long enough to help Justin. She doesn't want to think or do anything. Chris has been calling her about going after his mother to dispense Lucy's brand of justice on her. Lucy is not ready for that but when she listens to a message from Chris that ends with a gunshot, she knows she needs to find him.

The Lucy Kendall series continues. Lucy tries to right prior wrongs. She is depressed and has little interaction with her friends. She is more reflective than she has been previously. Two law enforcement officers let her know they think she had something to do with the recent deaths of child predators. Her friend Chris heads out to find out answers from his serial killer mother. The twisted minds, selfishness, torture, manipulation, pain and death continue in Gone To Die. what will Lucy do next?

Gone To Die by Stacy Green is a dark, gritty, psychological thriller. This book draws you in from the first page and doesn’t let go until the end and then leaves you wanting more! Very rarely does a book hold my attention from beginning to the end but this one definitely did. I couldn’t read the pages fast enough.
This book takes you into the mind of Lucy Kendall, the depression, anxiety, fear, the guilt for not being there for her friend Chris. The character development is phenomenal. The suppo

This is the 3rd book in the Lucy Kendall series. I think the Author keeps getting better with each book she writes.

Lucy is suffering from depression after her last encounter in the garage. Suddenly her friend Chris leaves a message saying that he is going to meet his Mother (serial killer Mary Weston) on his own. She is desperate to find him because at the end of his message, she hears a gun shot. Will she be able to find him alive, and if he is, will she enlist him as her new helper in carryin

Lucy Kendall is struggling to come to terms with the person she's become. Both through the unspeakable things she's seen and the actions she's taken, she's afraid she's gone too far down to ever come back. With dark secrets she's having trouble keeping hidden, the best thing she can think to do is to take some space from her friends and try to fix the brokenness she's fighting inside.

Leaving calls unanswered, Lucy doesn't realize until it's too late, that Chris Hale has gotten tired of waiting f

So the review for book three might change depending on whether this series continues or not…the ending, in my opinion, is only satisfying if there is another book. If Gone to Die is it for the series I am not sure I am happy with how the series end. In the third book, Chris has gotten himself ki

Gone To Die is another outstanding story about Lucy Kendall by Stacy Green. I was so pleased to be able to read this book early and want to thank Badass-Marketing and Stacy Green for the offer.
I truly enjoyed this book and look forward to Lucy Kendall #4 (please don't make it the last)!!!
Lucy has done some bad things in her life but for a good reason and now she might just have to face up to it all !! Working with the police to find her friend Chris and his mother Mary is not going to be easy.

Gone to Die is another exceptional thriller from Stacy Green. It was difficult to put this one down, as it is with each book in the Lucy Kendall series. Lucy struggles with her own demons and the external evil simultaneously. Have her decisions truly been for the greater good or her own secret thrill of killing? A must read.

Stacy Green’s GONE TO DIE is a killer of a thriller! The first line, spoken by narrator and protagonist Lucy Kendall, is “I killed two people last month.” And that’s just the beginning!

This is the third in a series of Lucy Kendall novels, featuring a vigilante private eye intent on taking out sociopaths who prey on children. The problem is, killing people is a bit on the sociopathic side, whether it’s being done in the name of justice or because you’re a psychopath! I was reminded of Thomas Harr

I want to open by saying I have read every book this amazing author has written and her ability to develop the characters and story line is second to none. My first exposure to her talents came when I downloaded a free copy of Tin God to my Kindle and I was addicted. Whether the story takes place in Mississippi (as in the Delta Crossroads/Delta Detectives series) or in Philadelphia as the Lucy Kendall thrillers, Ms Green has the ability to transport you there.

I was offered an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I thought Stacy's first book of this series, All Good Deeds, was fantastic. Her second book, See Them Run, was a let down for me. However, my interest was immediately recaptured when starting, Gone to Die. One improvement for me was less emphasis on the child predators and their subsequent fate. This book takes off in a different direction. It certainly held my interest. I would suggest starting this at the beginning of a
