My Blurb (4.5 / 5 stars)

Fans all over the world have been waiting for this moment! The moment when Special Agent Atlee Pine finally finds out what happened to her twin sister, Mercy, when they were separated as children. Mercy is a thrilling conclusion to this mystery as well as a spellbinding story of women’s resilience and strength.

Pine and Blum travelled the country in tracing those involved with Mercy’s kidnapping. As always, things never go smoothly as there are many other external factor that come to play. Slowly, complexity and tension build up until the explosive ending that is typical of Baldacci’s novels. I really don’t know whether this is a final Atlee Pine novel because all 4 books have been about her and Mercy. That’s pretty much done now and that last scene in the book sounds like a farewell to me. Either way, I’m very happy with this finale.

Honestly, this is a tough review to write without spoilers! So please forgive me for being more vague than ever but just believe me when I say that this is an unmissable finale though if you haven’t been following the series, you very much need to read them starting from book 1, Long Road to Mercy.

My thanks to Pan Macmillan Australia for this copy of book in exchange of my honest thoughts
