Downfall


GIVEAWAY

BLACKSTOCK, TERRI
DOWNFALL

Will her shady past lead to a dark future?

Emily Covington has turned her life around after the fallout of her drug addiction, but her family still has trouble trusting her. Though Emily completed a yearlong treatment program and has been sober for almost a year beyond that, her mother walks on eggshells around her, fearing she'll relapse. After her behavior during her drug years, Emily has a lot to prove.

When Emily and Lance discover a homemade bomb under Emily's car, and she learns the wife of a one of her friends was murdered that same morning, she begins to connect the dots. But her family doubts her. Has she angered drug connections? Has she dragged chaos back into their lives again?

A conversation Emily had with two men, an Alfred Hitchcock movie, and a plan for a double murder all conspire for one explosive ride. Emily is the only one who can identify the killer and save the life of the next potential victim. But will anyone believe her?

As she frantically works to solve this puzzle and convince authorities of the truth, Emily finds the focus of the investigation turned back on her. She's played right into the killer's hands...and he won't stop until more lives are destroyed.

My Review:

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.

  5. Terri Blackstock is an author I read this year and was floored by how intense her story is. It sounds like this is just as intense. I would love to read it. Thank you.

    1. Wow, you are way ahead of me, Trixi. And you're smart to have waited to read If I Run because part of it is a cliffie ending and the books are spaced a year apart. Gasp!

    2. Oh, good to know! I really dislike cliffhanger endings :-( I looked at Amazon and it says the next one is coming out in March, so maybe I'll hold off for a while longer.

    1. It's an excellent series, Aimee. And the books in this series can be read on their own...no cliffies linking them like If I Run (her latest books). Good luck.

  10. I haven't read this series, but I've been interested in reading it ever since you posted the review for Intervention :)
    Thanks for the chance!

  13. This sounds like another great suspense story. I might need to block off 2-3 hours of non-interrupted time for this one. Thanks for the review and giveaway. d[dot]brookmyer[at]yahoo[dot]com
