Having really enjoyed 'Desert Places' (book 1) and 'Locked Doors' (book 2) in the Andrew Thomas series, I had high hopes for this third book and how very disappointed I was. Firstly, I realised it would be a short story as it was a novella, but I wasn't expecting it to finish at just 69%. And why is it that when our hero finally gained the upper hand, he decided not to kill the pesky, troublesome Luther when he had the chance? I mean, what was that all about? I'm afraid I wanted a happy ending and I didn't get it. I wanted Andy to melt back into the Yukon life he loved with his new girl. Clearing his name might have been nice as well, so he could finally stop looking over his shoulder all of the time. I'm a real fan of Blake Crouch, but as a finale to the trilogy, this just didn't work for me at all and I regretted the £1.99 that I had spent on it. In fact, I wished that I'd left the story at the end of 'Locked Doors' - I would have been a lot happier.
