The crucial sequel to the New York Times bestselling The Secret History of Twin Peaks, this novel bridges the two series, and takes you deeper into the mysteries raised by the new series.
The return of Twin Peaks is one of the most anticipated events in the history of television. The subject of endless speculation, shrouded in mystery, fans will come flocking to see Mark Frost and David Lynch’s inimitable vision once again grace the screen. Featuring all the characters we know and love from the first series, as well as a list of high-powered actors in new roles, the show will be endlessly debated, discussed, and dissected.
While The Secret History of Twin Peaks served to expand the mysteries of the town and place the unexplained phenomena that unfolded there into a vastly layered, wide-ranging history, Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier tells us what happened to key characters in the twenty-five years in between the events of the first series and the second, offering details and insights fans will be clamoring for. The novel also adds context and commentary to the strange and cosmic happenings of the new series. For fans around the world begging for more, Mark Frost’s final take laid out in this novel will be required reading.
Twin Peaks co-creator Frost follows up 2016's The Secret History of Twin Peaks with another volume aimed at die-hard fans, this time a more straightforward account providing details about the lives of characters before and after the original TV series and the enigmatic Showtime revival. Those revelations come from case files prepared by FBI special agent Tamara Preston, the newest member of the Blue Rose Task Force, for her boss, Deputy Director Gordon Cole. They range from the relatively straightforward, such as an autopsy report of someone whose fate was left hanging at the end of the original show's second season, to the more esoteric, as with her philosophical musings about the meaning of the weird events surrounding the town of Twin Peaks. The highlight is the moving last testament left behind by the Log Lady, which was read at a memorial service in her honor. Viewers of the Showtime episodes will get some clues about one of the most tantalizing plot threads that went unresolved the whereabouts of Audrey Horne but Frost doesn't answer the biggest remaining questions. Fans will hope for a season four and more revelations.
Excellent finale to my favorite series
Very interesting concept for a book, it’s a very clever way to revisit all of the past characters and settings without cheesy plot points.
The audiobook read by Chrysta Bell as Tammy Preston(TP) was an absolute treat after growing to love her character on The Return.
Sad it’s over, so happy they know when to quit.
The book was great answer some questions that was lingering after the show, but some questions still remain for me. What was Sarah’s deal can we elaborate more on the atomic bomb testing and the dark hobo looking creatures. What was the deal with that bug creature that went into Sarah’s mouth. What was Lara’s Deal I suspect that she dabbling with some dark stuff. Did she go to the Black Lodge at some point as well, did her double make it out while she was trapped, if that’s the case which Lara got murdered the good one or the bad one. What was the deal in the end when it seems like her parents did exist at the old house or they were in a period of time where they were long gone and haven’t arrived at?? The book answer many questions and gave me insight but I’m still confused a bit.
Ties it all together
This book does a fantastic job of bringing the final series to a more understandable close.
