Book Review - DOWNFALL by Terri Blackstock
Downfall is the final book (#3) in New York Times best-selling author Terri Blackstock's Intervention series. Downfall follows Emily Covington, who has turned her life around after a drug addiction, but her family still has trouble trusting her. One day a woman is found dead and it turns out the woman's husband was in rehab with Emily. Eventually Emily remembers that the woman's husband and another man had discussed a plan for killing their wives while the three were in rehab together. Emily almost becomes a victim herself, when a homemade bomb is found under her car. While Emily is working to find out who is behind the murder plot, her brother Lance is having his own problems at school especially because of Emily's notoriety.
My thoughts: This book grabbed my attention from the beginning with the actions of "The Avenger" in Chapter 1. There was a lot of action and suspense in each chapter while at the same time moving forward the different characters and relationships. It wasn't almost until the very end that the perpetrator of the crimes was revealed and it was a surprise to me. Don't worry if you haven't read the previous two books in the series because enough of Emily's past story and her family relationships are explained and they become a part of the current story. I really enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to anyone.
