This one is not for the faint of heart. It’s a little dark and covers a subject not many people are fans of. While I enjoyed the story my heart was pulled out of my chest numerous times. Wishing this would happen or hoping that everything would turn out okay. I was Shocked….Disappointed….Sad and disgusted a couple times while reading. I think some of those is because I had such hope for Morrison and Shannon after Book 2. Then this book happened.
Morrison has a huge monkey on his back. We learned about this monkey in the last book. To me it was interesting but yet sad being in the mind of an addict. The dark thoughts vying for drugs while the good thoughts try to overcome. Such a struggle. Will Morrison come out the other side a solid man or a troubled one?
Each book gives us an insight to these characters. We see the good and the bad. Petrosky seems to be behind the eight ball with no desire to get out. He is a good cop who loves his new family. Hopefully they can keep him on the straight and narrow. Petrosky and “California” aka Morrison are amazing partners. They seem to help each other and their bantering makes the book a little lighter. Shannon while not having a huge part….has a huge part (read the book to understand). She is an anchor for Morrison as well as Petrosky.
This is the third book in the series and is a good psychological thriller. I felt the story was a bit slow at first (getting the story set up) but as it moved forward I could hardly put this down. The characters are amazing. This author knows how to write a crazy, mind numbing, soul searching story. I can’t wait to start reading the next one after reading the Epilogue.
