Damn did I love this freaking book!!! The perfect (really unexpected) way to finish this series! 

I enjoyed the new turn in the series in watching Pip struggle with trama and ptsd from what happened because you get to witness the major spiral she's going through while everything goes on. It sounds bad but I like how we actually see the trama all of this has given her. It shows the reality of being I guess a "crime solver" and how tramatic events have effects on a person. 

God the twists within the story I love them! Like it keeps pulling the rug from under your feet and then there's like a hundred more underneath it! 

It at times towards the final part, it feels a bit unrealistic given the situation. Yet I'm not that upset with it, with the way their world has been setup in the first books, it makes sense what happened within the books' universe. It also helps that the author explains the reasonings/thought process of the characters. It's not just thrown in there and not explained how or why, and we do get the chance to watch it be fleshed out.
Like does everything fit a little too well for it being just a coincidence with everything that happened? Yeah it does, and I can see why people may find that off putting. But honestly it doesn't make it a bad book, cause it fits into the world these characters live in and it still came out as a great final ending to the series. 

It made me feel an array of emotions and I loved every second of it!

I found the beginning to be long and boring, but the book quickly picks up into something your super involved in.

You know the trilogy was good when the last one was the best.This book was heavy and how Pip says it so perfect completely in the grey zone.I really liked the characters in this book.Pip is such a complex character and I think that makes the trilogy so good.How everything was perfectly connected,came back right were it all started and how everything fits with the other books is just something I was looking for,also the plot twists through out the trilogy were always unexpected ,at least for me.What I already really liked in the other books were the interview parts,pictures etc.Which were in this one also really interesting.

Just as well written, but not as enjoyable. Pip's decisions were very stressful to read.

unpredictable in a way, the ending crushed me and i honestly thought the book was going to end a completely different way before i was even half-way through it. read it in just over a day, love these fast-paced mystery books!
