Summary
"The master of ticking-bomb suspense" ( People ) returns with a devilishly good thriller, and reward seeker Colter Shaw's most personal case to date. Just hours after the harrowing events of The Never Game and The Goodbye Man , Colter Shaw finds himself in San Francisco, where he has taken on the mission his father began years ago: finding a missing courier bag containing evidence that will bring down a corporate espionage firm responsible for hundreds, perhaps thousands, of deaths. Following the enigmatic clues his father left behind, Shaw plays cat and mouse with the company's sadistic enforcers, as he speeds from one gritty neighborhood in the City by the Bay to another. Suddenly, the job takes on a frightening urgency: Only by finding the courier bag can he expose the company and stop the murder of an entire family—slated to die in forty-eight hours. With the help of an unexpected figure from his past, and with the enforcers closing the net, Shaw narrows in on the truth—and learns that the courier bag contains something unexpected: a secret that could only be described as catastrophic. Filled with dozens of twists and reversals, The Final Twist is a nonstop race against time to save the family.... and to keep the devastating secret Shaw has uncovered from falling into the wrong hands.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Colter Shaw is a reward seeker. People offer rewards for the return of missing loved ones, for example, and Shaw attempts to track down the missing person and claim the reward. He's a private investigator without a license. The son of a survivalist, he's smart, well trained in operating covertly, and he never gives up. It's perhaps appropriate to view the Shaw novels--The Never Game (2019) and The Goodbye Man (2020) preceded this one--as one long, continuing story. While in each book Shaw is after a different reward, he is also trying to solve a mystery from his own past, one that Deaver introduced in the first novel: How did his father's investigation into a large, secretive company lead to his death? Determined to bring this company to its knees, Shaw edges ever closer to full-on vigilantism. Although the Shaw novels are neither as exciting nor as cleverly constructed as Deaver's Lincoln Rhyme novels, this one is clearly the best of the series so far."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Part one of MWA Grand Master Deaver's subpar third thriller featuring professional reward-seeker Colter Shaw (after 2020's The Goodbye Man), titled "The Mission," includes the statement: "Time until the family dies: fifty-two hours." The explanation for this countdown comes out gradually. At a house in San Francisco, Shaw is looking for evidence his murdered father left behind about BlackBridge Corporate Solutions, whose machinations include flooding select neighborhoods with cheap drugs to drive down the price of real estate for predatory developers. His search almost proves fatal, and he narrowly escapes death from BlackBridge operatives when his estranged older brother, Russell, intervenes. A bad guy Russell kills carries a note indicating that a "kill order" has been placed on someone with the initials SP and SP's entire family. Neither the race to save those targeted within 52 hours nor the Shaw brothers' campaign to take down BlackBridge is as creative as the plots of Deaver's best work. The result is more familiar than surprising. Agent: Deborah Schneider, Gelfman Schneider Literary. (May)"
