Christy JanesAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent ConclusionDecember 13, 2012Christy JanesAge: 25-34Gender: femaleAll of Terri Blackstock's books are great from start to finish...doesn't matter which one I pick up. I know that every single time I read one, I'm going be riveted by the story and glued to every page.
Downfall was no exception. While I'm extremely disappointed that this was the last book in the Intervention series, I can honestly say that it was a great conclusion because truly, the Covington family's nerves are probably frayed to threads after all the ordeals they've been through!
The suspense was believable, too, especially the overall flow of events. Emily's part in the story blended well as she tried in her own way to solve the mystery. Lance's instincts proved true about his classmates from his new school, which also contributed to the suspense. And to top it all off, Kent was assigned to the case of figuring out who this weirdo was that was responsible for terrorizing everyone. Poor Barbara...it was all she could do to keep up!! She got a little hysterical a time or two, but honestly, who wouldn't?
I have so appreciated Terri's confidence in writing a series completely devoted to drug addiction, and how those addictions have a ripple effect on others. And to have it combined with her trademark Up All Night Suspense? What else could a reader want? :o)
The Phantom ParagrapherTauranga, New ZealandAge: 18-24Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5A great conclusion to an awesome seriesOctober 28, 2012The Phantom ParagrapherTauranga, New ZealandAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Do you love reading Edgy Christian fiction ? Find it more engrossing than your everyday sweet, inspirational, romantic or Amish christian fiction ? For me personally, I have always been a huge fan of this theme of genre as it excites me, it intrigues and draws me in as well as the fact it is fascinating to read about. Downfall is the third book in Terri Blackstock's Intervention series which follows the Covington family of Emily, Lance and their mother Barbara. Downfall is set two years later and Emily is now sober, clean and getting back on track with her life as she works part-time at a local rehab centre helping those get through what she has been through as well as studying at the local college. Downfall starts with a murder and the attempt to bomb Emily's car , soon the events flashback to a conversation that was held at the Rehab centre where Emily worked , when another woman is killed and evidence is found on the scene which points to Emily -is it all connected ? Due to her past, Emily is soon arrested and now it is left up to the rest of her family and her mum's new boyfriend Police Officer Kent to help find out who is setting Emily up and why ?
Will the killer succeed in making Emily look guilty and cause her to partake in old habits which will lead her to a downfall or will she in her dire strait rise from the ashes and show that it is she who is the better person ?
A great conclusion to an awesome series , I do however advise reading the series in order but if for some reason you can't get hold of Book #2 . Then please just read Book #1 as otherwise you will miss out on the understandings of the characters and the backstory that leads up to most of the events in Downfall.

Book Summary: Book 3 of the Intervention Series. Emily Covington has turned her life around after a drug addiction, but her family still has trouble trusting her. Though Emily has committed herself to a year-long treatment program and has been sober for almost a year beyond that, even her mother walks on eggshells around her, fearing she'll relapse. After her behavior during her drug years, Emily realizes she has a lot to prove. When police discover a homemade bomb under Emily's car, and she then learns the wife of one of her friends was murdered that same morning, she knows things are deadly serious. But who wants Emily dead? And why? A conversation she had with two men, an Alfred Hitchcock movie, and a plan for a double murder all conspire for one explosive ride ... and Emily is the only one who can identify the killer and save the life of the next potential victim. As she frantically works to solve this ever more complicated puzzle, Emily finds herself playing right into the killer's hands.
I read the first book in this series own the second one but have not read it yet. I did finish the third and loved it. It was a roller coaster ride with brief periods where you can catch your breath. I was able to make a correct attempt to figure out Ã¢â¬Ëwho did it' and yet nothing spoiled this story. This was easily a standalone and a series! It was great to read of people I had visited in the first book and yet they were fresh and exciting to hear how they have grown. The only question that came to mind on believability was if Emily did it Ã¢â¬ËWhere was the GUN!!! that she used????' However that was hardly a sticking point for me. I can't wait for Terri Blackstock's next mystery! I want another ride on the mystery roller coaster.
I would like to thank Net Galley and Zondervan Publishing for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.
