Why I read this book: I’d read and reviewed the second book in this series and couldn’t wait to read this final installment. Read my review of Neon Darkness HERE

I really can’t say enough about this series. Talk about a psychological thriller! This trilogy will have you on the edge of your seat and biting your nails. This is a genre that takes me totally outside my comfort zone but it was well worth it. I would point out that it could have some triggers for people and isn’t a light read.

The way Skot Harris lets us get inside the heads of not only the characters who have been so devastated by loss that you can feel their pain and grief but we also get to see what makes a narcissistic psycho-pathological character.  The writing is so well done that I even felt sorry (a little bit) for a serial killer. That’s really saying something!

The last book in the trilogy left on a cliffhanger and I can safely tell you all that every burning question you might have had will be answered. Don’t forget that sometimes the answer could be “no” lol.

I won’t go into a synopsis since that would give too many spoilers. I REALLY don’t want to do that because the mystery and the thrill is the best part of the journey in this book. Just do yourself a favor and get the trilogy. This is some of the best writing I’ve seen in recent memory, you won’t be sorry.

10/10 Pots of Gold or 100% recommended
