The Accomplice - Steve Cavanagh

Reading Challenge Category: The latest book in the series I’ve been reading

Official Blurb:

The Sandman killings have been solved. Daniel Miller murdered fourteen people before he vanished. His wife, Carrie, now faces trial as his accomplice. The FBI, the District Attorney, the media and everyone in America believe she knew and helped cover up her husband's crimes.
Eddie Flynn won't take a case unless his client is innocent. Now, he has to prove to a jury, and the entire world, that Carrie Miller was just another victim of the Sandman. She didn't know her husband's dark side and she had no part in the murders. But so far, Eddie and his team are the only ones who believe her.
Gabriel Lake used to be a federal agent, before someone tried to kill him. Now, he's an investigator with a vendetta against the Sandman. He's the only one who can catch him, because he believes that everything the FBI knows about serial killers is wrong.
With his wife on trial, the Sandman is forced to come out of hiding to save her from a life sentence. He will kill to protect her and everyone involved in the case is a target.
Even Eddie Flynn...

My Thoughts:

This is the final book in the Eddie Flynn series (or the last one so far, hopefully).
This book has a lot going on; we have past characters coming and going. People were being killed left, right and centre and a missing defendant.
Eddie really had his work cut out for him in this storyline, and it feels like each case he takes on puts his life and those around him in more danger than the last one.
I wasn’t as engrossed in the storyline as I had been in the previous book, but it was still good reading. Having caught up with the series and knowing the author takes no prisoners with his characters, you really feel like anyone is dispensable. It really keeps the suspense and thrill alive while reading it.
Just one thing that bugged me, and I can’t say too much without giving a large part of the story away, was the Kate side of things. She was the one that had prepped everything and was Carrie’s best hope, so why did the sandman do what he did? I know he wanted leverage, but the way he went about it just made no sense.
The ending of this book was the best; there were so many shocks and revelations—especially the very, very end. I can’t wait for the next in the series, and I wonder if we will circle back to this at some point in the future.
