Downfall by Terri Blackstock

Fans of Terri Blackstock always eagerly await each new book of hers and she never fails to meet our expectations! Downfall is the final book in the Intervention series, and follows Emily Covington as she struggles to commit to a drug-free future.

For 2 years, including a 12 months rehab program, Emily's family is still in fear that she may revert to former habits. A bomb is found under her car, and the wife of someone Emily knows from the treatment center is found dead. When Emily recalls a conversation with this man and another following a Hitchcock film, she fears that the wife of the other man may also be in danger. As she tries to intervene to prevent another death, circumstances suggesting that Emily may be involved began to surface.

Emily knows she is being set up, but by whom? Why? Family and friends want to believe her, but her activities are very suspicious.  When she finds herself being arrested, she fears that no one will believe her. Some pieces in this puzzle are missing... or are they just not quite fitting? Who is the mastermind behind this scheme, and why is Emily a target?

Watch this exciting promo video about Downfall:

I found myself completely immersed in the story, and could hardly tear myself away from the book.  Drug addiction is such a powerful influence, and I could relate to the hope Barbara felt that Emily was getting her life back on track, as well as the fear that she was being lured back to the destructive lifestyle. Once again Terri has crafted a story that is both probable, and filled with characters you have come to care about. This page-turner kept you on the edge of your seat as you tried to figure out who and why someone was targeting Emily, and how far he would go to destroy her credibility and her life. It is not necessary for you to have read the other books in the Intervention series, but I also recommend them. Downfall was released today (2/28/12), so you should also be able to easily find Intervention (#1) and Vicious Cycle (#2).
