The Final Twist by Jeffery Deaver
The gripping new thriller from the #1Sunday Times bestseller Jeffery Deaver and the final book in the Colter Shaw series. 13th May 2021, Hardback.
Unique Investigator Colter Shaw is searching for the answer to his father’s final, posthumous riddle. It will lead him to evidence that will topple the secretive espionage company, BlackBridge.
He believes BlackBridge to be responsible for his father’s murder and brother’s disappearance. They can outmanoeuvre anyone, as the long trail of bodies behind them can confirm. But they haven’t yet met Colter Shaw.
Don’t slip up.
This time the stakes are huge – the fate of a nation is in Colter’s hands. He must find the solution as to why his father died – but to do that he needs to stay alive…
The Final Twist is the third installment in the Colter Shaw series and although it can be read as a standalone you will probably want to read the first two books first, as they make for quite an addictive read. In this novel Shaw finds himself trying to track down the persons responsible for his father's death and discovering the reasons why. Shaw is sent on a hunt to locate evidence that will give him the answers he is after, although this mission is highly dangerous and time is running out.
This novel hits the ground running from the opening pages and the tension and action does not slow down. Espionage, danger, mystery and conspiracy is at the heart of this novel. Deaver's writing is highly descriptive and it was easy to picture the action unfolding, just like watching a movie. There were many anxious moments where my heart was pounding in my chest. Shaw and his family are bad-ass! Having been taught survival skills from their father and facing one threat after another, I was confident they would outwit their opponents and was rooting for them to do so.
A fast-paced thriller with twists and turns along the way making this quite the gripping read I was hoping for. Many thanks to Anne Cater at Random Things Tours for inviting me to join the blog tour and to Harper Fiction publishers for my gifted copy.
