I was pleasantly surprised after reading about 20 pages. A somewhat confusing beginning. The rest of the book was a total surprise! A mixture of IRA, kidnappings, best friends. A great read! I would like to read more of this author!

I finally had a chance to actually read this book--It is loaded with twists and turns-like a snake for a drain--I can't put it down--any avid reader who likes mystery and intrigue will love this book and believe me---you will not want to put it down until you have read the last line!!

Abby Northrup converted a monastery into a shelter for battered women and children. However, she never expected to see her close friend Alicia Gerard arrives with her daughter seeking shelter. When they do Abby notices both seem despondent and in shell shock.

Not long after taking the two females in, the FBI arrives at the monastery demanding Abby turn over Alicia to them as she is a murderer, but the Feds are too late as Alicia quietly left. Sheriff Ben Schaeffer warns Abby to stay out of the investigation, but her concern for her pal forces her to sleuth for the missing woman. Ben proves right when Abby steps into danger that impacts national security with only her beloved sheriff trying to keep her safe.

Though it takes time to lay out the plot, be patient because THE FINAL KILL is a terrific thriller that is worth reading as Meg O'Brien writes a deep character driven amateur sleuth mystery. The romantic subplot enhances the prime whodunit and where is she investigation conducted by the heroine. Ben is a delightful champion trying to persuade the woman he loves to back off as the Feds and others demand she stay out of this or else. This superb tale will provide plenty of fun to fans of romantic suspense.

"Suspense" novel about a woman who runs a shelter for abused women and gets tangled up in an international terrorist plot.Unlikely actions and downright incorrect information made me dump this after about 50 pages.

Started out fairly good then about the middle it just seemed to get slow and going no where fast, so I consider it only a 2 star rating as I like a faster pace suspense story
