Something wicked this way comes.

FBI Agent Ryan “Mac” McGuinness and con man Henry Page are on the run again. This time they’re headed back to where it all began: Altona, Indiana. Population: some goats. Henry’s not happy about lying low at the McGuinness family farm, but they’ve got nowhere else to go.

While Mac fights to clear his name and Henry struggles with whose side he’s really on, a ghost from the past threatens to destroy everything. And those aren’t the only storms on the radar. Cut off from both sides of the law, Mac and Henry must rely on their tenuous partnership to survive.

If Henry can convince himself to let Mac see the man behind the disguises, they’ll stand a chance of beating the forces that conspire against them. The course of true love never did run smooth, but for the two of them, it might be their only hope.

Story Review:

I enjoyed this conclusion to the Playing the Fools trilogy! We get more of the humor, more of the Shakespeare, more of the craziness that is Henry/Sebastian.

I liked the scenes from Viola’s point of view. It really helped to understand her. She played a big role in this book. I also liked getting to know Mac’s family. They were great!

Though parts of the book were a little slower, I felt that there was a lot of character development and the action at the end made up for it. I’m still not one hundred percent a fan of Henry, I think he needs to grow up a bit, he did make some good decisions in this book (as well as a few bad ones). I do love Mac though.

Overall and enjoyable series good for some laughs!

Narration Review:

Solid narration! I especially liked one scene where Henry is imitating Mac and how the Nick J Russo used “Henry’s” voice to do the mimicry. It was very funny. I think he did a good job with the series.
