Publisher's Summary

Private investigator Lizzy Gardner believed in law and order once. But after losing a loved one to a killer and watching too many vicious predators game the system and walk free, she's traded flawed justice for perfect vengeance.

Together with her tough and trusted assistants, Lizzy is tracking down a list of Sacramento's worst offenders and dealing out the payback they deserve. But she may be lethally outmatched by a new criminal, a murderer the papers have dubbed the Sacramento Strangler. This ritualistic serial killer is dropping corpses and cryptic clues at a shocking rate - and he's growing bolder and bloodier the longer he's at large.

In the suspenseful finale to the Lizzy Gardner series, bestselling author T.R. Ragan's gutsy heroine lashes out against the relentless onslaught of evil as she desperately fights to hang on to her own humanity.

What happens next?I don't want this series to END!

Any additional comments?

This was/is such a good series but I didn't get the feeling of completion. I know the description says this book is the finale BUT I still got the feeling that there was unfinished business. This story has an awful lit going on, two mysteries being solved and personal inner turmoil with all the main characters. Lizzie gives up the PI business and I can't say why without giving away something but it looks like someone from her inner circle will be taking it over. I also just don't see her just walking away. All I can say is if you like this series so far then this one will not disappoint you. I would not read it as a stand alone because there is a lot of background that fill out the characters.
Highly recommended.

The best, and final, novel in a wonderful series!!

T. R. Raran ended the Lizzy Gardner series with Evil Never Dies which is the best book in an excellent series. At least she indicated in her end notes in the Kindle version that this is the last book in the series unless she changes her mind.

As with other books in the Lizzy Gardner series this novel is set in Sacramento and the cases include serial murders. Evil Never Dies has more complexity than other books in the series. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Evil Never Dies and all six novels in the Lizzy Gardner series.

Narrator Kate Rudd is, as always, outstanding.

Evil never stops, even in the end!

I will start this review out with a notice to all readers, I will include spoilers from the previous book in this review, but not for this book. You have been warned.

Lizzy Gardner has just taken a devastating blow with the loss of her fiance, Special Agent Jared Shane. Her way of coping with the loss is to become a vigilante along with her assistants Haley and Katalie. Word has spread on the street about Lizzy's “undercover ops”, and Detective Chase isn't happy. The question of the day is, will Lizzy straighten up before she crosses the line?

In response to how the previous book, Almost Dead ended, WTH?! You killed Jared! He was a main character, how could you! Do you have any idea how hard it was to write a review for that book when it left me speechless?! I am so puzzled right now as to how I should feel, it's insane! I'm so used to my HEA's (happily ever after) that I NEVER expected the author to do this, EVER! And don't you dare blame this on me by saying I set myself up for it by expecting an HEA! I've said my peace, lets move on...

Despite the fact that this series is dark, and demented, I truly loved it from beginning to end. Lizzy has been able to form a family out of misfits that ended up being more trustworthy than her own flesh and blood. Haley especially had grown so much from book one that you would have never believed her to actually go on a date with Tommy! Or that Katalie, the bomb making troubled girl, becoming a great P.I. in her own right and loving it. I couldn't have asked for a better ending had Jared lived! I'm so sad to say goodbye to the gang, but this was the last book in the series. The door was shut but not locked, so there is always a chance for another...

Narrator Review
Kate Rudd delivered another great performance! I am sad that this is the end of this series, but I hope to come across Kate again in other audio books. Good luck Kate!

ANOTHER GREAT BOOK

The morning commute is a nightmare and instead of 25 minutes it takes 2 hours to drive to work. Thank you TR Ragan for great listening, preventing me from passing out behind the wheel.

Great novel! Glad There’s A Happy Ending

The entire Lizzy Gardner series is well written and full of twists and turns. There are stories within stories, all written well and executed nicely. Although you can read each book independently, I highly suggest that you start from the beginning. There are prior events mentioned that would make the story line even more enjoyable. T. R. Ragan is an excellent author; I highly recommend anything she writes. Kate Rudd nails the different characters, changing her intonation between male and female expertly. I enjoyed listening to her characterizations.

Wonderful read and listen..



I chose this book because I thought it sounded like a vigilante type book and I do like when someone goes around killing or maiming rapists or serial killers. However, I thought Lizzy got a little carried away with Bennett. I mean, kill him or cut his “wanker” off but she was on the verge of beating him to death. Then Hayley wanted to go ahead and kill him and Kitally was kind of in shock as she watched Lizzy beat him. Really, though, Bennett did deserve to die; he was a rich rapist who just continued to pay people in law enforcement and the government off while he went about raping innocent young girls. In the end he got exactly what he deserved.

And Zackery? The first time he killed (his little sister) he was 10 years old. He was a sicko, that’s for sure. And he’d been killing all his life, over 20 years, simply because he liked it.

I loved this book. I started it late last night and finished it today. No skipping chapters, no skimming pages. I ate up every word. Those are the kind of books I’m always looking for.

No sex but the F-bomb was used 31 times.

As to the narration: The awesome Kate Rudd narrated again. I absolutely love her reading. Her voices are tremendous and her emotions are exactly right.

A cliff hanger until the very end

Wow, what a way to finish off the series. A fantastic story and I couldn't put it down. The whole series has been fantastic. Thank you. I'm sad it's all over.. Or is it??
