The Final Twist, Jeffery Deaver

The Final Twist opening lines: Colter Shaw draws his gun. He starts silently down the stairs, descending into the old building’s massive, pungent basement, redolent of mold and heating oil.

My blurb:

The Shaw children have been raised with a unique set of skills. This makes Colter really good at his job. But when he goes ‘off base’ to try and solve a riddle his father left him, he does not have all the skills he needs. Can he solve the riddle and save a family? Only time will tell, and he does not have much of it.

The Final Twist

Twist left.

Unique Investigator Colter Shaw is searching for the answer to his father’s final, posthumous riddle. It will lead him to evidence that will topple the secretive espionage company, BlackBridge.

Twist right.

He believes BlackBridge to be responsible for his father’s murder and brother’s disappearance.  They  can outmanoeuvre anyone, as the long trail of bodies behind them can confirm.
But they haven’t yet met Colter Shaw.

Don’t slip up.

This time the stakes are huge – the fate of a nation is in Colter’s hands. He must find the solution as to why his father died – but to do that he needs to stay alive…

My verdict:

I have not read any of the Colter Shaw books but I shall keep them on my radar. The particular skill set he was taught really interests me. A great stand alone read so don’t worry if you too have not read any of the previous books.
