PRAISE FOR THE COLTER SHAW SERIES:
‘Gripping and ingenious tale of greed and deception in the American wilderness’ The Times Thriller of the Month
‘Deaver is a masterful storyteller’ Daily Express
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…
I have never had the pleasure of reading a Jeffrey Deaver novel before, but I certainly plan on reading more of his work after being drawn into The Final Twist. This is an action-packed thriller that will draw you in from the start. Despite not having read the previous two books in this series, it works well even if, like me, you haven’t read the earlier books. I still found it an enthralling read.
It has great characters, plenty of surprises and keeps you on the edge of your seat as the suspense and drama escalates. There are plenty of twists and turns to keep you desperate to find out what happens to Colton Shaw next. On a very personal case to expose a corporate espionage firm, Colton plans to continue where his father left off. The firm are responsible for hundreds of deaths and Colton learns he has only 48 hours to solve his latest case and try to prevent murder.
A gripping thriller you won’t want to miss!
