About the book
The final thriller in the million-copy-selling Katie Maguire series.
In the driver’s seat of a Jaguar, on a country road, a good man burns.
Justice Garrett Quinn should have been at a sentencing. He was one of the good ones, fighting for order in a lawless world. In a burned-out car, on the outskirts of Cork, DS Katie Maguire finds what’s left of him.
But this is only the beginning. The judge’s death sparks a gang war fought with bullets and bombs, and civilians are caught in the crossfire. As the city spirals deeper into violence, Ireland’s most fearless detective must find the courage to fight for her hometown one last time.
Katie Maguire is no stranger to sacrifice – but she has lost so much already. Facing new horrors each day, Katie must decide: can she do her duty when she has nothing left to give?
Trust me to come in at the end of what is very obviously a fantastic series of books! I’ve been inspired to go back and start the Katie Maguire series from the beginning and I’m already half way through book two so watch this space.
I thoroughly enjoyed The Last Drop of Blood but I do feel like when it came to a few of the characters and different backstories, I may have benefitted from having a little more knowledge. There is a lot going on. That said, it didn’t stop me enjoying every page of this book.
It’s action-heavy, which I loved. The storyline was really well written and thought out to perfection. I was totally captivated and in a hurry to find out what was happening on the next page.
The crimes, although ruthless and violent, don’t present as far-fetched at all. The characters are equally believable and rounded.
It’s dark, compulsive, full of drama and suspense and full-on high intensity all the way through. What’s not to love about that?
