I am a bit surprised by some of the reviews of this book. I am a fan of Iles and Brick so maybe I am biased.
I did not find Brick's narration to be tedious or overly dramatic - I think it was on-target.
As for the storyline, this is the conclusion of a fantastic melodrama - its so far from reality you cant judge it to be believable. Pieces of the story can be somewhat believable but taken in its entirety it's crazy FICTION! Some readers were mad about Penn's sexual relationship so soon after the death of his fiance, it can be explained as grief or anger over her death or not -maybe the author just wanted to throw in another crazy relationship. The same goes for the courtroom scenes and the relationship with his 1/2 brother Lincoln. Its all a retreat into fantasy. I enjoyed it, then again, I was looking to escape and got my money's worth!

This is such a good book, I almost think it's the best in this trilogy. I was completely hooked within the first few minutes of starting it with the prologue. Wow! Kaitlin has been murdered and Daniel Kelly is missing in Afghanistan. Tom Cage is going on trial and Penn is falling apart.
The bulk of this book takes place in or around the courtroom. Quentin Avery is the attorney but not putting up much of a defense. Everyone begins thinking that he has either lost his courtroom savvy or has dementia.
The story continues by dragging in everyone from past books to come to terms with any evils they may have perpetrated (not just this trilogy, but from prior books as well). Throw the Double Eagles in and a threat on the Cage family lives and you've got a real nail biter going on.
I can't say more without spoiling the book or the outcome for anyone, suffice to say it is a riveting story that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
I can't say enough about this book other than to HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you get it.
