Read the heartwarming conclusion to the six-part Matty Cruz Adventure series.

Dispirited Matty Cruz is approaching her first year anniversary in Couper, Washington, a tree-filled city nestled on the banks of the Columbia River—which also happens to have the highest violent-crime rate in the Pacific Northwest.

In the sixth and final book of the series, Matty Cruz goes to Mexico with her brother, Ricardo, to look for the dying father who left them when they were babies. Will they be able to reunite with him and not reveal his location to the government agent who is watching them?

Carol Karuso is off to Texas to uncover the secrets kept from her for twenty years. Will she survive a visit to her home town, and does she have what it takes to track down the truth?

Sam Bester is left in Couper, Washington to nurse his wounds and his regrets. Afraid that Matty will never forgive him for his lies and treachery, he wonders what he should do, or go, next.

When the three meet again, will it only be to say good-bye?

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER (February 2019)

In this gritty and gripping new novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, Eve Dallas fights to save the innocent—and serve justice to the guilty—on the streets of New York.

Homicide cop Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband, Roarke, are building a brand-new school and youth shelter. They know that the hard life can lead kids toward dangerous crossroads—and with this new project, they hope to nudge a few more of them onto the right path. For expert help, they hire child psychologist Dr. Rochelle Pickering—whose own brother pulled himself out of a spiral of addiction and crime with Rochelle’s support.

Lyle is living with Rochelle while he gets his life together, and he’s thrilled to hear about his sister’s new job offer. But within hours, triumph is followed by tragedy. Returning from a celebratory dinner with her boyfriend, she finds Lyle dead with a syringe in his lap, and Eve’s investigation confirms that this wasn’t just another OD. After all his work to get clean, Lyle’s been pumped full of poison—and a neighbor with a peephole reports seeing a scruffy, pink-haired girl fleeing the scene.


Now Eve and Roarke must venture into the gang territory where Lyle used to run, and the ugly underground world of tattoo parlors and strip joints where everyone has taken a wrong turn somewhere. They both believe in giving people a second chance. Maybe even a third or fourth. But as far as they’re concerned, whoever gave the order on Lyle Pickering’s murder has run out of chances...
