A taut, compulsively readable, elegantly plotted thriller' - Guardian

Characters in this last part of the trilogy have more depth; the rhythm of the story is enthusiastic, to a point in which you can't stop reading.
The story takes you to places which you could not predict.
Reading it was very enjoyable.
I am very pleased with the series, and it's a remarkable way of ending a series.
Well done Holly!
"The game had changed. Her against them. Save herself to save herself"
Pip is reeling from what happened in the previous book, Good Girl, Bad Blood. She is suffering silently. Everyone around is trying to act normal, overcompensating to fill the tension, as if she didn't just go through a trauma, as if she can be fixed with bad jokes and big smiles. Pip has turned to different ways to sleep, to cope, to exist, and it is rough reading her feel helpless and responsible. She thinks that if she could just find something else, a new case or mystery, than she can fix the broken pieces inside herself, tape herself back together, and be like before. Before the trauma(s), before that night with all that blood.
"Pip had asked for a way out, one last case, and something had answered her. Now it was even more perfect, even more fitting. Because DT was the origin. The end and the beginning. The monster in the dark, the creator, the source. Everything that had happened traced right back to him. All of it."
She found her case because the case was now her. Holly Jackson really wanted to go out with a bang and boy, oh boy did she deliver. Pip has to solve a crime before it happens.
She has to solve her own kidnapping and m*rder (It's in the synopsis; it's not a spoiler. Don't yell at me).
I think the police not believing her, AGAIN (!!), breaks my heart. Like, how many times does she have to prove herself. It is a dangerous game the police are playing, not believing her. At least humouring her! I wanted them to do something. Put a squad car outside, check her list of enemies, or even just help her monitor her social media account. SOMETHING!! ANYTHING!!!
I was so anxious that I don't think I was breathing normally until I got to acknowledgements. The anxiety! The drama! The planning! The accomplices! I could never!!!
I fully understand why this was the route that was taken. It was the moment and the character arc that this has all been leading up to. Pip taking the law into her own hands. Manipulating the system that she knows intimately to get away with murder. There is no more right and wrong. Just grey.
I'm going to think about this book for a while.

This transmistion makes this book difficult to read - I was quite unprepared for the departure from the fun inquisitive nature of book one and two and the trauma filled voice of this novel. As earlier stated this novel is in no way bad or uninteresting, indeed it's message is both important and necessary, however I could not enjoy it. I found it too dark, too true perhaps and not in keeping with the read I personally expected.
Give it a go if you like novels that are quite dark and trauma filled but if you prefer the lighter all's well that ends well vibe of book one then this is not for you
