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. <br/>Highly recommended. <br/>If you find this review helpful please indicate so. <br/>Thank You.

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.

good, good, good

This was a favorite! I've liked them all but for some reason, this one else stands out. I know it's a tad dark, but I dig all the acceptance and changes in the characters.

Graphic Thriller

The final Lizzy Gardner series. If readers get this far they will most likely be wishing for more. I know i am. This series was exciting, graphic and thrilling. The characters all have their own personalities yet fit together as a strong bond is developed.

Disappointing ending to Lizzy saga

Good suspense and storyline, but had trouble with lack of balance because Jared character killed off in earlier book. Darker side of story was harder to take without the love story to balance it. Lizzy's team going rogue, while understandable, was also a little tough to take. I enjoyed the series but really didn't like the loss of a major character well before the ending of the series. Very good narration, helped with getting to know characters.

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??
