    This is the last book of the McMurtrie and Drake Legal Series I was hooked with the first book It is best to read the series in order Robert Bailey was a new author to me when I read book one; now he is on my favorite author’s listThe book is well written The characters are interesting and believable The suspense is almost unbearable The scenes about cancer are realistic and are written with emotion Only someone who had experience with cancer would be able to write so effectively about it The ending was excellent in that it wrapped everything upThis was a great series I do hope Bailey has some books coming I highly recommend this seriesI read this as an audiobook downloaded from Audible The book is nine hours and fifty nine minutes Eric G Dove does an excellent job narrating this series Dove is an actor musician and a multiple Earphone Award winning audiobook narratorI

    I read this entire four novel series over the past several months and they are all terrific When beginning this book it seemed like a premise that was a little too obvious but I should not have doubted Bailey's ability to pull it off With one twist after another The Final Reckoning is a treatise on how to maintain tension chapter after chapter while making the reader care for some characters and hate others

    The Final Reckoning offers a great story fast pacing strong narrative action fear and misery and transcendence In other words it is a great classic thriller Though often than not categorized as a legal thriller the book puts the thriller concept ahead of courtrooms and legal wrangling though the story does have some of that tooBailey proves once that he is one fine writer with a great instinct for telling a powerful storyIn The Final Reckoning Tom McMurtrie is a terminally ill man but he must live long enough to save his family from destruction at the hands of JimBone Wheeler a natural predator and criminally insane killer Tom helped place on death row When the madman escapes and comes after Tom and his kith and kin the dangers—and violence—escalate uickly This book creates a tense nail biting manic need to keep reading and turning pages to find out what happens next especially after JimBone makes his first successful revenge killThough there is enough fast paced action to satisfy any thriller addict The Final Reckoning is also a tender hearted family drama Tom’s family struggles to come to terms with his stage four cancer diagnosis even as the professor himself seeks meaning in his last days There are some definite pangs of longing in scenes between Helen aka The General a prosecutor who could have been Tom's lover if things had been different for them And scenes with Tom and his grandson Jackson are moving tender sweet and never overplayedIt is probably best to read the four books in the series in order The books in the series are The Professor Between Black and White and The Last Trial all published by Thomas Mercer All books in the series are excellent

    Th last book in a series is often used to simply tie together loose ends but not this one Yes all things are pulled together from the three previous novels but this book does much it inspires Every day needs to be lived to its fullest as The Professor and his friends so ably model when confronted by evil personified in JimBone Wheeler who is looking for a final reckoning

    I have to say that this was one of the best written series I’ve ever read—and I read a lot The storyline was well developed and compelling the characters were believable and though it was a series each book had realistic conclusions while still drawing hr reader in for I had one problem the explicit sexual scenes and the profanity This writer is so good that it just wasn’t necessary I found the parts that just told the story without all of this were much much better This kept me from giving the books 5 stars Such a good writer though


  8. Mary Meredith Mary Meredith says:

    I've enjoyed the McMurtrie and Drake Legal Thrillers since I read the first book This final book is a good wrap up of the series It is fast paced and exciting and it was hard to put down I recommend this book to everybody

    In between reading some of my heavier titles I like to read a book from the fantasy or legal genre Robert Bailey's McMurtrie and Drake Legal Thrillers definitely fit my need for a fast paced lighter read I am looking forward to reading his next series
