DESCRIPTION:

The past and the present collide in the final installment of USA Today bestselling author Debra Webb’s Devlin & Falco series, threatening everything these two detectives care about.

Birmingham detectives Kerri Devlin and Luke Falco arrive at the scene of a double homicide to discover that nothing makes sense. A woman and her child are dead, and though the husband says he killed them, the evidence says otherwise. Why would a man confess to unspeakable murders he didn’t commit?

What starts as an open-and-shut case explodes into a web of new leads. Devlin and Falco get to work tracking down every single one—including a disturbing connection between the murders and Falco’s dark past.

Falco knows the incident from eight years ago will jeopardize the partnership he’s built with Devlin, both on and off the job. If he could go back, he would—but what happened happened, and there’s a murderer on the loose. Devlin and Falco must slog through the pain to get to the truth; and so far the only truth they know is that everyone is lying.


MY THOUGHTS:

This gripping Devlin and Falco series by Debra Webb is filled excitement and danger as the series comes to a close. After a woman and her child are found dead, and the husband confesses to the murder, detectives Devlin and Falco should be able to wrap the case up quickly. Instead the case begins to unravel something from Falco's past from nearly ten years ago. His partnership with Devlin had been thriving, and now everything could come toppling down. 

The investigation that Devlin and Falco undertake is extemely intense with the partners desperate to sort the connection to Falco's past. I have loved both of the previous books in this series, Trust No One and Gone Too Far. Each book in this series could do well as standalone novels. However, if you enjoy continuity as much as I do then I definitely recommend reading this series in order. I do feel a measure of sadness that this series has drawn to a close.

Many thanks to Thomas & Mercer and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
