Pay the Penance

This is the final instalment of The Mechanic Trilogy,

I highly recommend reading the previous two books, THOSE THAT REMAIN AND IN YOUR NAME before reading PAY THE PENANCE.

Murder. Corruption. Revenge.  Lucas has been tracking a killer, known as Mechanic, when his world is shattered. Unable to continue his hunt for the murderer he is forced to rely on his friend and colleague Dick Harper. But Harper has a knack for not playing by the rules. He doesn’t disappoint.  Meanwhile Detective Moran is trying to piece her life back together. The police stumble upon new evidence without grasping its significance. She has to divert the investigation if she is to survive.  The police are closer to Mechanic than they realise which puts Moran right in the firing line.  Mechanic, as usual, has other plans and the consequences for Lucas and Harper are terrifying…

My Thoughts

Pay The Penance is the concluding book of The Mechanic Trilogy,

WOW! What a read, I will admit to reading this book in one sitting. I tried to put the book down, but I kept picking it straight back up. So I settled in for the journey. What a roller coaster of a journey it was.

We are taken through the finale with great skill - there were some superb sentences that are dark and sarcastic, and I re-read them due to the clever wording and they made me smile.

Lucas and HARPER ARE NOT FINISHED WITH the Mechanic who has bruised this pair and battered them physically and emotionally. they want and end. WIll they get it?

There are quite a few elements of the storylines that needed tying up and Ashman delivers this without cutting corner or compromising the plot.

I was yet again mesmerised in to the fascinating personality that is The Mechanic, and getting deeper into there mind, which is a dangerous place to stay for too long... and I really felt for the character without condoning the devilish crimes/gut wrenching tortures they delve in to.  

Ashman has delivered another creatively brilliant novel to the readers. it is an extremely alluring read with repulsive crimes, but is too enthralling to put down.
An exceptional conclusion to an amazing trilogy that kept giving in more than one way. These three books drew me in and kept me captivated and that as a reader is what you are looking for.

I am looking forward to what Ashman can deliver after this, and am sure it will be as intricate, stunning and dark! This is truly a trilogy not to be missed, and I shall be revisiting them again...
