Rating: 5 of 5 Stars


It’s been five years since Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett first worked together to solve the Tri-State murders, and time has been both harsh and kind. Engaged now, they face the challenge of planning a deeply uncertain future together. Zane is at the pinnacle of his career with one last mystery to solve, while Ty is at sea in a world where he’s no longer the tip of a spear.

There’s just one more hurdle in the way of their happy ever after: a traitor from their inner circle who threatens to burn their world to the ground.

Squeezed between the Vega cartel, an unknown mole, and too many alphabet agencies to count, Ty and Zane must gather all their strength and resources to beat the longest odds they’ve ever faced. To make it out alive, they’ll need help from every friend they’ve got. Even the friends who might betray their trust.

Teresa’s View:

I must admit, that though I wanted to read Crash & Burn to finish the series, I had lost my enthusiasm for the series after Ball & Chain. I wasn’t expecting huge things from Crash & Burn and I only hoped that Ty and Zane ended the book unscathed and still loving each other.

What I got was a novel full of action, betrayal, questioning loyalties, brothers in arms, and under it all, a withstanding love. It had its flaws, and Ty and Zane weren’t unscathed, but I was able to see past that to the story of these men standing by each other. I loved it!

It had a full cast with Liam Bell, Julian Cross, Ty and Zane’s FBI team, and the Sidewinder crew all playing parts. We travel from Baltimore to DC and Texas to Miami. We get to see the Gradys again as well as the Carter-Garett Ranch. People are killed, people are injured, and people are saved. Ty and Zane show their love for each other.

There were parts where I literally screamed “NO!” at my Kindle, unable to speak further, I was so in shock. There was never a dull moment.

If you want to look at the plausibility of the situation… well then it was a bit out there: all the alphabet agencies warring with each other; the Cartel out to get them; the deep betrayals. However, it was fun even as it was brutal.

And the ending… I loved the ending! It left me with a smile on my face and happy with the boys lot in life. I’m sure we will see them turn up in future Sidewinder novels. I recommend giving this final book a go! Just don’t forget to read the epilogue located after the credits! It’s a great look at them a few months after the story.

  1. I liked it but I don’t buy Dick Burns, the man who loved Earl and Ty as the bad guy. Why? What does he need that money for? Does he have a gambling issue because he didn’t use it on his wife, or his home?
    Mr. “T” —WTH? that was out of left field! I don’t know.
    NIA was truly incompetent to blame Liam for that “crime”. I had many scratch head moments. But our guys love each other!

    • All valid points, and I agree, but I guess I was able to see past the head scratching and just focused on the action more in this book than in others. I went along for the ride and loved it 😀

      Thanks for commenting!!
