This ‘final dossier’ is an analysis by Agent Tamara Preston regarding certain person-of-interest: Annie Blackburn, Audrey Horne, Leo Johnson Windom Earle, Diane, 'Judy', Dr. Jakoby, certain other characters, and naturally Agent Cooper. She spills the beans on certain life events- and inconsistencies in their written case histories in last year’s Secret History of Twin Peaks. There are even some attempts at explaining certain supernatural entities. Since there will probably be no more Twin Peaks TV episodes or movies, this may be the best we’ll get as a parting gift from co-creator Mark Frost. The stories are fascinating, and there are few visuals (as this is the Kindle edition), but it’s engrossing and I sat and read it in one long reading. It’s almost like reading a plot synopsis for a missing Twin Peaks season. Definitely worth the read, and writer Mark Frost knows these characters inside and out. Engrossing, but still retains some of the mystery…
There are plenty of reveals that I wanted to see in the new series that never materialized. It’s allot of fun to read. Being a fan since day 1 back in 1990, I couldn’t put it down and knocked it out in a few hours. Loved this.
My favorite section is done with Alberts autopsy notes. This would have been a classic scene in TP.
Thank you, Mr Frost... but please, gives us another season of TP with the real Cooper, I miss him.
I also think some of the reviewers are understating the impact of some of the newer, or at least more explicit, nuggets Frost drops into The Final Dossier. Obviously I can't elaborate without giving too much away.
That said, there is nothing especially novel or exceptional about Frost's writing itself. This is intentional, I think, because this is supposed to read like and FBI dossier and not an esoteric spiritual guide; and it is frankly to be expected as Frost is the "soap opera" plainspeak merchant that has always made David Lynch's dream quest-like visions of Twin Peaks more accessible to us mere mortals. Also, I pre-ordered this at a very good sale price and I would strongly recommend buying below MSRP value-wise. This is a good companion piece, but not a great novel in and of itself.
Another difference between this volume and the last is the length. As other reviewers have noted, once you take out the blank pages and photos, there's less than 100 pages of material here. Not a problem in and of itself, but the $21.99 price tag seems a bit steep (granted it's cheaper at the moment on Amazon) and adds to the feeling that this was a last minute cash grab to make fans pay again for what they wanted from The Secret History to begin with. All that aside though, it's an interesting and informative read for invested fans of the series and is a nice bit of closure as another season of the show seems unlikely.
