A great tribute to BB's skills as an author, and a good end to the series...,
This review is from: Dead By Nightfall: Dead by Trilogy, Book 3 (Kindle Edition)I was so sad when BB passed away earlier this year, and felt bad for wondering if she'd managed to finish this long-waited trilogy. I am so pleased that she did it, with a plus-length tale.
Whilst it was what I expected, I did find it quite gruesome and cruel, but it did explain more about the bond between Sanders, Yvette and Griffin - and why Nicole had been excluded, though not entirely intentionally.
The amazon summary is only a brief synopsis of what happens, but of course, with BB, you know you're going to get a HEA, but I did feel at times as if the tale was a little touch too drawn out. There were too many 'almost's in it, which given Griff's connections, were a bit surplus. On top, whilst I appreciate that he was devastated over Nicole's abduction and loss, his loss of control just seemed a little OTT and a little indulgent and un-Griff. Getting angry, yes, trashing things, yes, but growling and roaring like an animal?
The things that we learn the trio had been through, which happen in another cycle of copycat behaviour was awful and quite sadistic, and I did wonder how these prominent baddies got away with it...but perhaps there is more than meets the eye in this society. Being a Londoner, I realise that BB did a lot of research with this and the previous book, as she was accurate with language, places, things British, though the name Thorndike Mitchum sounds totally pompous.
Should there have been mass HEAs in this tale? No, that would have been unrealistic, but I think a few more deserved their happiness, and it is so sad that those and other characters introduced in this book will never now get a chance of their own tales. I've tried to find out if there were more finished books awaiting publishing, but couldn't find any info anywhere, and when I read the heartfelt dedication from BB's family, it kind of made it sound as if this was a final tribute to her, A fitting one.

I felt the same way and so glad the 'trilogy' was finished, found it really sad that BB was obviously planning for spin offs from this, I think Luke/Merry and Yvette/Rafe could have easily had their own books.
