I inhaled this book in one gulp. Seriously, I started reading and then it was over and I have no idea where the time went. Impossible to put down. Blackstock has the amazing ability to draw a reader in and hold her hostage until the very last page.
Love the Covington family. This is book three in the Intervention series. You don't need to have read Intervention or Vicious Cycle first, but you'll grasp the family dynamics and mom's love interest, Kent, better if you have.
Sinister suspense brings danger spiraling out of control for all the Covingtons. A desperate kind of read that won't let you go until the breath-taking conclusion.
All 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)
