Review: The Final Twist by Jeffery Deaver

Publisher’s Descrption

Just hours after the harrowing events of The Never Game and The Goodbye Man, Colter Shaw finds himself in San Francisco, where he has taken on the mission his father began years ago: finding a missing courier bag containing evidence that will bring down a corporate espionage firm responsible for hundreds, perhaps thousands, of deaths.

Following the enigmatic clues his father left behind, Shaw plays cat and mouse with the company’s sadistic enforcers, as he speeds from one gritty neighborhood in the City by the Bay to another. Suddenly, the job takes on a frightening urgency: Only by finding the courier bag can he expose the company and stop the murder of an entire family–slated to die in forty-eight hours.

With the help of an unexpected figure from his past, and with the enforcers closing the net, Shaw narrows in on the truth–and learns that the courier bag contains something unexpected: a secret that could only be described as catastrophic.

Filled with dozens of twists and reversals, The Final Twist is a nonstop race against time to save the family…. and to keep the devastating secret Shaw has uncovered from falling into the wrong hands.

Thrilling Reads Review

The third book in the action-packed series featuring Colter Shaw picks up just hours after the harrowing event of THE GOODBYE MAN (second book in the series). Note: I started this series with this book and I did not feel lost picking it up out of order. It does standalone, but you might have more fun reading the three books in order.

Colter Shaw is tracker finding people for money. He grew up with his survivalist father and he finds himself following clues his father left in order to find a missing courier bag with evidence that will bring down a shady private espionage company responsible for a lot of deaths and evil shenanigans.

Being that I live in San Francisco, I enjoyed that the novel takes place in the City. It was fun seeing Colter Shaw running around all over the city in a race against time thriller to avenge his father’s death, bring down the evil BlackBridge organization, and prevent an entire family from being killed. There is also a big secret in that courier bag Shaw must prevent from getting into the wrong people’s hands.

Colter Shaw is also being chased a cadre of sadistic killers working for BlackBridge.

Jeffery Deaver packs in a lot of action, thrills, and twists in this book, which was a lot of fun to read.
