Thirty years after losing a parent to a hit-and-run drunk driver, FBI agent Alex Troutt finally confronts the killer–the same man who just murdered the Boston police chief.
And what Alex pulls from him shatters her core.
Armed with little more than hope and a shred of decades-old evidence, Alex chases a memory from her past, hoping that she’ll find the mother she never really had. With her old buddy Archie on board –as much as ever can be — the hunt takes her deep into the foothills of West Virginia. A fanatical religious cult has created its own society. Desperate to right a thirty-year wrong, Alex must out-think and out-duel everyone in her path to right a thirty-year wrong.
Will Alex’s quest to find the truth destroy her life all over again?
I’ve read several Alex Troutt Thrillers before and I’ve loved every one. Alex is a strong, confident woman who manages to deal with whatever life throws at her. You don’t need to have read the previous books to enjoy this one, but I recommend you read them all because they are that good. In AT Last, Alex is dealing with some painful issues from the past with her parents when she gets involved in a new case that makes some of those memories even more painful and really explains a lot about why Alex is the way she is today.
The author did an amazing job of tying in this new case with Alex’s past. With every page I read, I got more and more engrossed in the story and really felt like I knew Alex and felt what she was going through. This is definitely one of the best Alex Troutt thrillers I’ve read and highly recommend you read it.
