About A Final Call

Homicide Detective Stacy Tavitt has too much on her plate. Her delinquent brother is in deep trouble and now he’s gone missing. Is he in danger? Is he dead? And an old college friend has a missing son, Colton, and is counting on Tracy to track him down. But Stacy’s last investigation has left her physically sick and at risk of being invalided out. She has a lot to prove and time isn’t on her side. Nor, it would appear, are some of her colleagues.

At first, there is little reason to suspect foul play in Colton’s disappearance – until he becomes the primary suspect in the brutal murder of an ex-girlfriend.

There are dirty cops in the force and dirty business at every turn. It’s a race against the clock as Stacy searches for the truth about her brother, the location of her friend’s son, and the mystery of a killer who is targeting her friend’s family.

She needs answers, even if she has to break the rules to find them. This time it’s personal.


A final call is my first read by Eliot Parker and it’s definitely right up there with some of my favourite books. The plot line is super fast paced and you need to keep your wits about you, but this is what I like. It makes me feel much more invested in the characters, I felt like I was trying to work out who did what to whom. The characters are full of, well character and it seriously is an enjoyable read so full of twists and turns my head was spinning, but in a good way. When the end arrives, it is a full on shocker and not what I was expecting but it was brilliant. I certainly want to read more by Eliot Parker and I would highly recommend, if you like a good fast paced police procedural book then this is one for you.
