The higher-ups in Portland, alerted to her bloody path of revenge, begin to tighten their net around Red, who's got one last name to cross off her list. As she struggles to decide who she really is-and the cops come down hard on her friends-she'll have to fight her way through bureaucracy, the tunnels, and her sister to get to the man who put her on that boat three years ago. Revenge is never simple, but Red and Jack are about to find out just how big and complicated it can get.

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Oct 30, 2018

    The story ends without platitudes or easy answers and Red is left in only a slightly less precarious place than when the series began. "Unburdened," is the word Red uses as a description, but sometimes that's all there is that can be expected. Read Full Review
