Publisher's Summary

For months, Doctor Rowan Dupont has been staring death in the face. It followed her back to her hometown of Winchester, Tennessee 10 months ago, cloaking the walls of her family’s Victorian funeral home like a shroud. In investigating the mysterious deaths of her loved ones, Rowan has unearthed enough family secrets to bury everything she’d previously thought true. But each shocking discovery has only led to more bodies and more questions; the rabbit hole is deeper than she ever imagined. 

Despite settling into a comfortable life with Police Chief Billy Brannigan, Rowan knows dangerous serial killer Julian Addington is still out there. She can’t let her guard down now. Not when she’s this close to ending it once and for all. But with a storm brewing on the horizon, she’ll get only one shot before the impending darkness takes hold, threatening to wipe away every truth she’s uncovered - and everything she holds dear.

Not a stand-alone. Final book of a serial killer series.

I recommend the excellent synopses at Goodreads and Amazon, and I’ll go straight to review. I prefer crime fiction books with clean endings, so I’m glad this story arc is finally over. This series broke my personal believability limits regarding serial killer crime fiction. I bought this final book to find out how the author closed out the series. However, it’s slow reading, so I also bought the Audible version, turned up the speed to 1.7-2.0, and was able to finish the book.

The origin-story of the family of psychopathic murderers was interesting, but author could’ve disclosed in earlier books to enhance readers’ appreciation of the villain. The possible number of victims is astounding—as is the unveiling of a mini-Catacombs of Paris, not to mention the many grisly family celebrations which included “BYOB”—bring your own body—murder parties. As I said earlier, OTT for believability in plain-wrap crime fiction—which isn’t UF or magical realism.

This entry has too many recaps, waaaay too much repetition of earlier plot points, and over-explanations about characters from earlier books. The result: word-walls, info dumps, angsty internal monologuing, and domestic/personal drama—all of which slows the pace.

3.5 stars for the Audible version, because the narrator tried her best w what she had to work w.

what is the meaning behind the nora tattoos

Wow, what a crazy ride. Id have never guessed her mother's background. The real story behind Nora's death. Who the people with the Nora tattoo really were. I enjoyed having Charlotte tag along. The real shocker, who Julian really is and what happened to FBI Josh and how he plays into the story!
