This is a fairly well written story , I found it a little less hectic and with a little less punch then the previous books but did enjoy thestory.
Having read Stone Cold by Parker had almost turned me on "couple" killers. I was almost reluctant to read Final Edge because of this. The fact I loved the other Edges and Stonecoat convinced me to at least try the book.
I was relieved that Walker gave me interesting complex Serial Killers. It was sheer delight. The complex pysche of the female killer was the draw for me to finish the book. I had to read to find out where she was going next.
I started the series, as I said, because of Stonecoat. I was a bit disappointed in him and his lack of development in this book. It was as if he was "wrapped up". This made sense after I read it was the last of the series. He didn't seem to develop as deeply as previously. As I said he was wrapped up and so was the good Dr. Instead the complex insight used on Stonecoat in earlier Edges went into the killers. It worked. I don't regret adding it to my bookshelf as a keeper addition.
As the final book it worked and worked very well leaving me with a content feeling about the series. If you are new to the series read the other Edges then read this one but be sure to read this one. See if we can't talk him into more or at least Remo and North. (...)
First, all the books, I notice that Walker's books were originally from paperback. I am going to guess that the pages were scanned and no one reviewed for errors because of the "blending" errors where the computer misreads the print on the pages; thus, the=die, he=lie and words like corner and barn end up being comer and bam. All of these typos is, at the very least, jarring.
Second, I have reservations (no pun intended) about Walker's knowledge of police procedure. It's like reading an episode of Castle where cops and civilians seem to do whatever it is they want to do and come up with the roses.
Third, the leap from "episode" 3 to "episode" 4 when Stonecoat becomes a Viet Nam vet. In 1996, when the first story begins in Cutting Edge, he is 34. The Final Edge is somewhere in the 21st century--no dates are really given except once 2004 is mentioned. Even if Lucas Stonecoat was an 18 year old in 1972--the end of the Viet Name conflict -- he would be either in his sixties or nearing sixty, so there is a problem with the timeline. I realize that there is a 10 year gap between #3 and #4--but really--how does one age nearly 30 years? Additionally, Meredyth Sanger goes from a small woman in the first installment to a tall woman in the final episode. Also, she doesn't seem to have made the age leap that Stonecoat has; otherwise, why would she make the comment about being unable to have children? At 40+ she's concerned about having children?
Finally, dialog. There is just too much of it. Walker does try to throw in the incidental movements (rubbing the back of the neck, sighing and the like) but it just doesn't make up for the dialog where often the reader can't be sure who is saying what. Some of this I put at the feet of the publisher/editors who should have caught this faux pas.
So why did I read #'s 1, 3, and 4? Because I'm a masochist? Because I like to finish what I start? It's anybody's guess. I'm still trying to figure out the glowing reviews from other readers. Perhaps they are seeing an aspect that I can't.
Again, I am glad that I didn't pay for the books. They aren't worth the price.
