Miki's first decision, though it actually takes place off-page, is if he wants to meet this woman or not. Does he want to know anything about the piece of his life before going into the nightmare of his foster-kid-do. Does Miki want to know about the part of his life from before he was a toddler found wandering on the street alone? It turns out that a piece of him does.
For safety's sake (and because some things are just more than even strong Miki can handle) Edie sets up a meet-and-greet with the woman. After all, for all they know she could be just some crazy kook with a fame-fetish. It turns out that the woman really DID know Mikis birth-mom back in the day, and has a packet of birth-mom's personal effects that she wants to pass on. When Miki was found alone that day it was because bio-dad wasn't in the picture and bio-mom had just been murdered.
A little boy survived the evil mayhem worked upon his mother, and with her gone so was the little boy's identity. The boy was found, put into foster care, and named for the street corner he was found on. Today that little boy is all grown up, he's a famous musician, and he's somebody's loose end. Whoever was responsible for Miki becoming an orphan wants to tie up the loose ends. That person (or group of people) sent a knife-weilding thug after Miki in Vegas (remember the stabber who ended up under the wheels of a bus, but whose body disappeared before getting to the morgue?). Now Miki is at home in San Fran, but he's still in the cross-hairs.
By chance Kane is on-site when some of the loose-end-tying starts to go down. It's up to Kane and Kel, plus the rest of the SFPD (and by extension all of the Morgan clan) to keep Miki alive until a 20+year-old mystery can be sorted and all the old secrets brought to light.
To say any more about the plot from here would be just one giant spoiler, but I will say that Miki DOES finally get answers to the questions nobody's ever had anwers to, answers that will finally help Miki to heal. And through it all, he's got Kane holding both his hand and his heart; the rest of the Crossroads Gin boys are at his side; and the Morgans have his back.
Since this is, after all, Rhys ford you KNOW that Miki WILLget his happily ever after. In this case, it's also pretty much guarranteed that you WILL need a box of kleenex at your side in order to get through the book.
This book is different from the rest of the series in that it's really a thriller/suspense book, and not so much about the romances/relationships of the Crossroads' boys, but it's a fitting end to the series. It's a capstone that needed to happen, and Rhys Ford knocked it OUT OF THEPARK.
He has the love of Kane and the Morgan family. Miki describes the clan “they hug for everything. It’s freaking weird. I can’t get used to it. Swear to God, they hug each other when one of them comes back from the store. Like they fought a battle to get some eggs.” They may not battle for eggs but the Morgans battle for Miki – against the forces trying to kill him and from the demons that haunt him.
He has the band, even when he forgets that Dave and Johnny are dead and turns to see Rafe and Forest. Damie, the brother of his heart, still plays beside him and dwells in both Miki’s home and soul.
Miki says if you stop walking through hell, you end up living in it. Through 5 books, he has walked through hell and in this book, he comes out on the other side, where he knew Damie and Kane were waiting for him.
Rhys Ford writes gloriously. The Sinners series is her finest work. This last book is the crown jewel. I would stop and reread passages and descriptions, amazed at how every word was necessary and added to the tapestry. Then I would tumble along to the next bit of the story.
I’m sorry that the series will end here but it is a satisfying end.
Rhys has gifted fans of the Sinner's series with a fitting finale, one that keeps you hanging on a fine edge and hoping for more even as you race towards the books (and series) end. Miki's story arc is superbly, beautifully concluded and the ending of this is wrapped up in so much love that you just know that for the rest of his life, he's going to be happy to his very soul. That he is loves, he is cherished, he is safe and he is whole.
I'm not going to post any spoilers here, there's so much that happens in this book and you want to go in fresh, so as to enjoy the story to its fullest. You know Rhys is going to look after you, in the same way she looks after her characters. Enjoy every moment, I certainly did. Thoroughly, highly recommended.
