Emily Covington has turned her life around after a drug addiction, but her family still has trouble trusting her. Though Emily has committed herself to a year-long treatment program and has been sober for almost a year beyond that, even her mother walks on eggshells around her, fearing she’ll relapse. After her behavior during her drug years, Emily realizes she has a lot to prove. When police discover a homemade bomb under Emily’s car, and she then learns the wife of one of her friends was murdered that same morning, she knows things are deadly serious. But who wants Emily dead? And why? A conversation she had with two men, an Alfred Hitchcock movie, and a plan for a double murder all conspire for one explosive ride ... and Emily is the only one who can identify the killer and save the life of the next potential victim. As she frantically works to solve this ever more complicated puzzle, Emily finds herself playing right into the killer’s hands.
FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
Downfall is another painfully true story of how one person’s addiction can affect so many people around them. Blackstock’s writing talent continues Emily’s story in a remarkably entertaining way. Readers will finally learn what it takes for an addict to turn her life around. Emily has a strong family support system to help her along the way; that, along with her Faith in God will ultimately help her wing the fight to get her life back.
I loved Downfall, along with all the books in the trilogy. I strongly recommend all Terri Blackstone’s books. They’re all 5 star book for me.
