Looking for something to read over the weekend ?
Nothing on your book radar that is screaming ‘read me’?
Take a look at my Friday Favorite. It may be new. It may be old. It may be written by a famous author, or by someone you have never heard of. But wherever in the spectrum it falls, it will be a book that is special to me, one that has captured both my imagination and my heart.
I can’t believe that I had forgotten about this amazing series. .. it started with All Good Deeds, then came See Them Run, Gone to Die, and finally All Fall Down, which was an absolute blinder of a finish to the series. But, be warned, you do need to read them in order to get the most from them.
And he knew me. He knew how to pull my strings until I did exactly what he wanted.’
ABOUT THIS BOOK: A killer rises…
Determined to start over, Lucy Kendall moves to Washington, D.C., and takes a position with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
But the past doesn’t want to let her go.
When a police officer walks into her office and tells her the unthinkable, she knows she has to go back. But it’s too late. The gauntlet has been dropped, and Lucy has no choice but to play a sadistic killer’s game.
Unable to trust anyone, Lucy scrambles to find the truth. But time runs out, and she must do the one thing she swore she’d never do: tell the truth about the people she’s killed.
Will Lucy’s ultimate sacrifice be enough?
MY THOUGHTS: Stacy Green sure knows how to pull my strings and push my buttons!
I know that when I start one of her books, I am not going to get anything else done until I am finished. Which is why I stayed up all night reading All Fall Down.
This is book 4, and the final one, in the Lucy Kendall series; undeniably the best series of psychological thrillers I have ever read.
Lucy has moved to Washington, D.C., and taken a position with the National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children, a position where she can utilise her unique talents.
She has decided to make a fresh start, to put her previous life behind her. But you know what they say, you always take yourself with you, no matter where you go.
So when one of her former Social Services clients is found murdered and posed to resemble Lucy’s dead sister, and a message for Lucy is scrawled on the mirror, Lucy believes she is responsible for the death.
And then the unthinkable happens – Kelly is abducted and her abductor issues a challenge to Lucy. She has 48 hours to locate Kelly, or he will kill her.
Is this linked to all the bad things she has done in her past? Or is this someone new, playing out his sick and sadistic fantasies?
The writing is taut, tense and suspenseful – just what I have come to expect from Stacy Green. The plot is fast paced and unpredictable; the characters, flawed as they are, get under your skin and into your heart.
I am going to miss Lucy, Kelly, Todd, Chris and Justin – they have undoubtedly provided the best reading of my year. But I am looking forward to reading Stacy Green’s other works; and I see she has a new book out early 2016, which I am going to pre-order.
Thank you Stacy Green for this wonderful journey.
