The final book of the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling Rose Gardner Investigations series.
When a body shows up south of Henryetta, Rose knows trouble is on the horizon. Rufus Wilson worked for the county crime lord, Skeeter Malcolm, and she soon discovers Wilson had a special skill set—he could crack safes.
Now everyone is looking for Wilson’s girlfriend, including Rose, and it doesn’t take her long to realize Wilson’s murder might actually be connected to something else, something bigger. Hardshaw Group, a Dallas crime syndicate, is meeting a South American drug cartel in the county, only no one knows the time and place.
Denny Carmichael’s drug empire has a lot to lose if they move in, so now he’s calling in the favor he insists Rose owes him—find him the time and location. Or else.
Rose is a hair’s breadth away from losing everyone she loves, including her six-week-old daughter, and she’ll do anything she can to save them.
So many tears
Such a great but sad ending. I’ve been reading this series for a while now, I’m sad that it’s over. But it was such a beautiful read and great evolution to Rose and her growth. Everyone needs to read this!
I can’t believe this is the last book
A wonderful ending to an awesome series. I actually ugly cried. Well done Ms. Swank. Well done.
Took me awhile to read this, just because I know it’s Rose’s last book. Now that I have read it, I’m not sure why I waited. Absolutely amazing book. Very well written. Ties up all loose ends. Thank you Denise! If you haven’t read this one yet, you really should read it. If you’ve never heard of Rose Gardner. I highly recommend starting at the beginning with Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes. I’ve loved her journey since the beginning.
