One morning as Emily rushes out to her car to make it on time for her college exam, she sets fire to her car by turning the ignition and discovers a homemade bomb duct taped to the underside of her car. Police cannot find to much evidence left behind by the assassin at the crime scene, and begin searching for possible suspects, having to dig through Emily's years as a drug addict to get to them. Who wants Emily dead and why? To make matters worse, the wife of one her friends was also murdered that same morning.
Emily, wanting to find the connection between her and the on going murders around her, frantically begins exhausting her resources to try and identify the killer and save the next potential victim. But with her past, no family support, and not knowing anyone in her new town, Emily finds this exceedingly difficult and is afraid that she may not be able to catch the killer in time.
Downfall by Terri Blackstock (An Intervention Novel) kept me hooked until the very end as do all of her amazing novels. Blackstock did a terrific job concealing who the murder was until the very last pages! I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys murder mysteries, and action/thriller novels!
I received this book compliments of Shelton Interactive and Zondervan Publishers for my honest review and would rate this novel a 5 out of 5 stars.
Terri Blackstock nailed this one on the head--Downfall was definitely my favorite in the series! With sporadic scenes from `The Avenger's' point-of-view and an interesting twist to a Alfred Hitchcock movie, Downfall beings strong and keeps amping up the suspense, tension, drama!
Emily has been free from drugs for about two years, but that doesn't mean she still struggles with her past addiction. I really came to admire Emily as she fought her flesh so hard--even when she was emotionally and physically hurting, she resisted going back to drugs to help ease her problems. Instead, she leaned on the Lord, trusting Him to be strong when she could not...and He was!
I was slightly sad to see the Intervention series come to an end and say goodbye to the Covingtons, I think it is for the best--this poor family needs a break from all the trauma they've enduring the past few years. The ending was really sweet, leaving me contented with how this wonderful cast of characters ends up. Terri Blackstock certainly fulfills her trademark, Up All Night Suspense!! Downfall is sure to keep you reading into the wee hours!
I reviewed this book for Zondervan. Many thanks to Shelby for sending me a copy to review. It was not required that I give a positive review, but solely to express my own thoughts and opinions of this book, which I have done.
Emily is working and going to school. Then forces beyond her control devise to bring her down long, hard and forever. This is a mystery that twists and turns full of fast paced action. I appreciate Blackstock’s understanding and compassion toward recovering addicts and her understanding of the families that are attempting to negotiate their way through uncharted waters. A good read.
For 2 years, including a 12 months rehab program, Emily's family is still in fear that she may revert to former habits. A bomb is found under her car, and the wife of someone Emily knows from the treatment center is found dead. When Emily recalls a conversation with this man and another following a Hitchcock film, she fears that the wife of the other man may also be in danger. As she tries to intervene to prevent another death, circumstances suggesting that Emily may be involved began to surface.
Emily knows she is being set up, but by whom? Why? Family and friends want to believe her, but her activities are very suspicious. When she finds herself being arrested, she fears that no one will believe her. Some pieces in this puzzle are missing... or are they just not quite fitting? Who is the mastermind behind this scheme, and why is Emily a target?
I found myself completely immersed in the story, and could hardly tear myself away from the book. Drug addiction is such a powerful influence, and I could relate to the hope Barbara felt that Emily was getting her life back on track, as well as the fear that she was being lured back to the destructive lifestyle. Once again Terri has crafted a story that is both probable, and filled with characters you have come to care about. This page-turner kept you on the edge of your seat as you tried to figure out who and why someone was targeting Emily, and how far he would go to destroy her credibility and her life.Read more ›
