Blurb: Everything has fallen apart. With the Night Shift HQ destroyed and supernatural murders spreading across Chicago, the Night Shift team circles the wagons. Reeling from their losses, Fynn has to draw on every friend –supernatural and not– he has left to track down the monster responsible, a chase that will take his team far from home and the comfort of the world he thought he knew.
With his partner Jack and their daughter, Fynn faces questions about his family, an old feud and the Night Shift’s origins will bring Fynn closer to the truth, but he’s not sure he going to make it out of this one. He’s not even sure he wants to.
Review: This book is part of a series and must be read in order. With the destruction of Chicago Night Shift HQ and mysterious murders, leaving them reeling Night Shift circles its wagons. Fynn is the highest-ranking Night Shift officer left standing, he has to take charge, contact allies, and find the monster responsible, and it takes him and Jack across the world back to where it all began for the original Night Shift team.
This story dives in right where The Night Shift ended, it starts with explosions, sacrifice, betrayal, and death, and Fynn has to pick up the mantle and discover who, how and why. Fynn and Jack have a lot on their plate reorganizing Night Shift and calling in allies and family to help track down the culprit, they have little time for rest as they race across the country on the killers trail and then across the ocean to England and Ireland to a showdown that reveals the person pulling the strings.
Wow, this book certainly doesn’t pull its punches as secrets are revealed and the twisting tentacles of the past linger and try to control the present. Both Fynn and Jack are as they have always been, although Fynn is feeling the pressure and the alcohol is calling his name. The mystery of whom was stealing artifacts is revealed and the sinister connections that are revealed as they investigate is chilling, but finding out why they were all betrayed is gob-smacking. Many things are revealed in this story with connections to the previous books and many secrets come out, Jack and Fynn are a spectacular couple and their co-workers, friends and family pull together in this story and make it brilliant.
I have to recommend this to those who love paranormal, sinister undertones, a long reaching plot, some sweet loving and a great ending.
