A Final Call is a work of fiction in the thriller, crime/mystery, and emotional drama subgenres and was penned by Eliot Parker. The work is suited to the mature adult reading audience owing to the presence of some graphic violence appropriate for the subject matter. Our central protagonist is Stacy Tavitt, a homicide detective in Cleveland, who finds herself embroiled in both personal and professional drama when she reluctantly agrees to investigate the disappearance of an old college classmate’s son, Colton. Still knee-deep in grief after the disappearance of her brother, Stacy juggles converging lines of inquiry to catch a killer, clear her brother’s name, and deal with threats to the lives of everyone around her, and even herself.

Author Eliot Parker not only knows how to build suspense but also how to maintain it for a novel that never lets up on intrigue. I found myself glued to the pages from start to finish to see what would happen next. I was impressed with the structure and pacing of the plot to deliver each thread of the tapestry and allow us to see it all weaving together, yet without ever giving away the twists in the bigger picture. Stacy was a well-crafted central character for the story to revolve around, especially because of her conflicted emotional investment in the case, which made her compelling in her own right. There were some genuinely terrifying moments where the darkest parts of humanity were revealed. Overall, I would highly recommend A Final Call for crime and thriller readers everywhere.
