Publisher's Summary

"Find Patrick Lahm. Tell him it has her."

When a serial killer is found dead in the woods outside the quiet town of Darville, with scratches across his face, and his head impaled on a shovel, Patrick Lahm and Jimmy Frey are called back to Connecticut. Living as fugitives, and constantly moving from place to place, it is a call they have been praying for in their tedious search for the monster that started it all, and tore their lives apart.

But Darville is not as peaceful as it seems, and the sins of the many cannot remain hidden forever. Patrick and Jimmy quickly realize that, despite their best laid plans, things can go terribly wrong. As darkness descends on the small New England town, the evil that had once brought misery upon the guests of the Kurtain Motel, finds its place amongst the wicked, and promises them salvation.

All they have to do is confess.

Great ending.

Book 3 sees Patrick and Jimmy on the hunt for the evil that took over Jimmy's mother. Patrick gets a call from a friend to tell them about a serial killer being killed near where he lives, Darville. After the events at the Kurtain Motel in the last book, Patrick is wanted by the police so is trying to keep a low profile, but he has no choice but to go to Darville and investigate.

This one is hard to summarise simply because this is book 3 and I would spoil things for both book 2 and this one. So I'll just say that the plot of this was great. It wraps up a lot of the questions from the other books, plus it's a lot darker. Poor Patrick is stuck in the cell with the spiders!!! *Shiver* The plot of the overall series is quite complex and twisty, but worth it if you stick with it. I was blown away with parts!!

Jimmy and Patrick have their work cut out for them and things come to a head. I was rooting for them the whole way through and was satisfied with the ending!! So in all, a great ending and I need to check out more from this author.

Thom Bowers read this well and gave a great performance. He is easy to listen to and brought the story alive.

I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

Great 3rd book in series

Patrick and Jimmy are still out there hiding and yet trying to find the monster that wrecked their lives so they can destroy it. The only problem is the monster is inside Jimmy's mom. This was a great 3rd book in the series with plenty of action, spiders and CONFESS in it. All in all I enjoyed the series. I still think it would make a great movie but wouldn't look forward to seeing millions of spiders crawling on everyone....yuck!

Strangely Intriguing

Seems strange as you go into this book of the series but hang in there, it all comes together somewhat in the end.

Book number three

This is part number three in the series. You have only three who survived that stormy night at Kurtain Motel. You have Patrick Lehm, Tara and her teenage son Jimmy. They're trying to get away to Canada. Sadly they stop in the town of Refuge, Maine and they feel safe. Patrick gets a job. You then have Patrick and Jimmy trying to rescud Tara who is in Purgatory. The characters are interesting and go well with the storyline. You have suspense, sometimes creepy, but remember confessions set you free. I enjoyed this book even with the Zombies. The narration is good and you will want the audible version.

And I waited.....

I never thought there would be an ending I could live with in this third instalment, and while it did end with the death of sort of, the question I still have is this, what was the “key” meant to do, and what was Phillips backstory...

Perhaps another series about that??

Please!

Great conclusion (?)

Great conclusion to the series... or maybe there will be another book?? It was interesting having the boy’s ‘on the run’ searching for Tara. The character development was definitely there, and we got to meet some new characters as well. Thom Bowers does a great job narrating!

Like its predecessors, I couldn’t put it down.

Again, I couldn’t put this book down, and it was very much like somethings Stephen King and dean Koontz would’ve written. I was sad that it ended, because with any good book, I always get attached to the characters. Lots of creep, lots of intrigue, and lots of twists and turns that kept me guessing, usually wrongly.

Purgatory ?

I liked this story. It was a continuation of the story of Patrick and Jimmy. This story was very well narrated. I just wished that we would find out what happened to Jimmy and Philip. I will keep reading stories from this author.

Another great one

I would have liked for him to find Jimmy in the end but Jimmy is better with the other guy.

Better than the 2nd book

The action and story were, thankfully, better than the 2nd book but still not good enough for me. I gave this 3 stars for all the things Nasser left unsaid.

Once again characters were introduced and some tantalizing tidbits of background was given but never explained. Seemingly worthless information was given in the beginning but was never later touched on. And several times the people from the Kurtain Motel were called friends of each other. Seems ridiculous to call people you don't know and whom you didn't like during the incident "friends."

We never find out what happened to Tara to put her in the Soul Collector's power. We never really find out what happened between her and Harold at the end of book 2. Now there's a new character - Philip - introduced and given what looks to be a solid part but hardly any information on him is given. Who is he? What is it about him that's important? More questions spring to mind but there are no answers.

The ending was open, making me think there will be more books for this series but I thought it was supposed to be a trilogy. ??? If this book is truly the end of the series then I'd detract a star because nothing about the ending is an end. If anything it opens the door to more books. Questions have been raised without much being answered. Nasser doesn't seem to likje answering questions though. Based off of this series, he much prefers creating the questions.

One more thing...If I hear the word "confess" one more time I'll scream.
