Publisher's Summary

The crucial sequel to the New York Times best-selling The Secret History of Twin Peaks, this audiobook bridges the two series and takes you deeper into the mysteries raised by the new series.

The return of Twin Peaks is one of the most anticipated events in the history of television. The subject of endless speculation, shrouded in mystery, fans will flock to see Mark Frost and David Lynch's inimitable vision once again grace the screen. Featuring all the characters we know and love from the first series as well as a pantheon of high-powered actors in new roles, the show will be endlessly debated, discussed, and dissected.

While The Secret History of Twin Peaks served to analyze the mysteries of the town and place the unexplained phenomena that unfolded there into a vastly layered, wide-ranging history, Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier tells us what happened to key characters in the 25 years between the events of the first series and the second, offering details and insights fans will clamor for. The audiobook also adds context and commentary to the strange and cosmic happenings of the new series. For fans around the world begging for more, Mark Frost's final thoughts, as expressed in this audiobook, will be required listening.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Mind blown

I realize that even though I love David Lynch's version of Twin Peaks, I needed Mark Frost's part of Twin Peaks dearly. Season 3 felt great, and heavy Lynch influenced. I had so many questions, so many things were left unanswered. This book gave me almost all of the answers I needed and a few new mysteries and things to wonder about for a long, long time to come.

How amazing that David Lynch and Mark Frost came together to create this world that I love so much. Thank you!

Makes the show much less nebulous!

This book manages to clarify the events of the Return and everything in the 25 year gap without killing intrigue or mystery. Highly recommended to all Twin Peaks fans.

So many answers!

Mark Frost has advanced the mysteries that could continue in a 4th season of the show. But more importantly, he's offered answers that make the 3rd season far clearer for those who paid close attention.

A good epilogue to a brilliant show

Don't expect clear cut answers, but much like Frost's previous Twin Peaks book, it gives you context, history, and the tools to piece this puzzle together if you've been paying attention. Frost uses incredible prose to tell these stories that expand upon and explain this year's most befuddling series. While this isn't as good as "The Secret History of Twin Peaks", it's essential reading for any fan! Here's to hoping for more books in this series...

A satisfying coda

The Final Dossier doesn’t give all the answers, but provides strong arguments and supporting evidence for things left unanswered and unsaid in the latest season of Twin Peaks. A must for any fans.

great delivery

great read, and very important before season 3. a lot of the book is obviously frosts idea of twin peaks, lacking some lyncheanness. still, it is very fascinating to delve into 25 years of twin peaks and these residents in just 3 hours. mind blowing.

An underwhelming followup

While The Secret History of Twin Peaks towers above as one of the greatest contributions to the franchise, the follow up The Final Dossier feels like cold leftovers. While it makes sense that the books are bisected by the events of The Return, I can't help but feel that these are just a few Secret History chapters that were left out because they would have spoiled the show.

Too much of TFD backtracks on Secret History territory and does not tie into the following events as much as you would expect. The book is significantly shorter and the audiobook voice cast is reduced to all but one. I would have been quite disappointed to have waited for this if I had read and watched the new Twin Peaks as it was released, but thankfully I had experienced both books together after finishing the TV series. In that case, TFD is a fitting, if unexciting, epilogue to the series as we know it. I would not recommend this book on its own, but rather as an additional, small, piece of The Secret History of Twin Peaks.

Great story....but Wallowa Valley is in Oregon

Love this story - my only complaint is the inaccuracy of where Wallowa Valley is. Wallowa Valley and lake are in Oregon.
