After the suspcious death of his father, Adam Blaine attempts to help his family heal as the court inquest into Benjamin Blaine's death casts suspicion on those closest to him
"Two months after the suspicious and much-publicized death of his father on the island of Martha's Vineyard, it is taking all of Adam Blaine's will to suture the deep wounds the tragedy has inflicted upon his family and himself. As the court inquest into Benjamin Blaine's death casts suspicions on those closest to him, Adam struggles to protect them from those who still suspect that his father was murdered by one of his kin. But the sternest test of all is Adam's proximity to Carla Pacelli his late father's mistress; and a woman who, despite being pivotal to his family's plight, Adam finds himself increasingly drawn to. The closer he gets to this beautiful, mysterious woman, the further Adam feels from his troubles. Yet the closer he also comes to revealing the secrets he's strived to conceal, and condemning the people he's so hard fought to protect. This is a complex family drama pulsing with the tumult of the time and dripping with summer diversions, youthful passion and ideals, class tensions, and familial disruptions" -- from publisher's web site

I enjoyed the part about his experience in Afghanistan searching for Bowe Bergdahl, who was later returned to America in exchange for 5 prisoners by Obama.

Fast moving, truly complicated family. I didn't know it was a trilogy, and this is 3of3, so I am getting 1 and 2 to read now.

Complex family relationships involving betrayal and murder and self discovery.

Having read the second book of the trilogy a while ago, I was concerned that I wouldn't remember key plot points when reading this third and final installment. Hah. Much of this book is very repetitive. This is by far the weakest of the three books; all of the shocking actions and revelations came in the first two, and this book is all about people coping (badly and in long interior monologues) with those revelations. One main character's informal psychoanalysis is a main part of the book, so you get interminable discussions between him and the therapist about his reactions and problems. Read the first two books and skip this one; the 'resolution' isn't even that interesting.

So disappointing, the first two books in the trilogy were quite good. This one was repetitious, with huge chunks repeated from a previous book (in case you forgot what had happened I guess). Not even sure why I finished it.

I didn't read the middle section of this book.......... it just got too horrific. Good writing, but certainly not uplifting.
