Downfall: A Review

In the final book of the Intervention series, Emily, who has been sober for two years, is still trying to convince herself and her family that she has put her drug use behind her. When she finds a bomb under her car, leaving her past behind gets a little harder, especially when people connected to her start dying….and Emily is blamed. Will her mom and Kent be able to find the killer before Emily is the next victim?

What I have enjoyed most about this series is that it realistically shows the struggle of a former addict to stay clean. Although most addicts don’t run from killers literally, the daily choice to stay clean is a difficult journey. Blackstock’s portrayal of addiction’s effect on everyone involved is poignant and real. As always with a Blackstock novel, there’s an adventurous ride towards finding the killer.

Fans of Blackstock will enjoy this conclusion to Covington family’s story. I recommend reading the books in order.

I received this book in exchange for my review. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
