Read the heartwarming conclusion to the six-part Matty Cruz Adventure series.
Dispirited Matty Cruz is approaching her first year anniversary in Couper, Washington, a tree-filled city nestled on the banks of the Columbia River—which also happens to have the highest violent-crime rate in the Pacific Northwest.
In the sixth and final book of the series, Matty Cruz goes to Mexico with her brother, Ricardo, to look for the dying father who left them when they were babies. Will they be able to reunite with him and not reveal his location to the government agent who is watching them?
Carol Karuso is off to Texas to uncover the secrets kept from her for twenty years. Will she survive a visit to her home town, and does she have what it takes to track down the truth?
Sam Bester is left in Couper, Washington to nurse his wounds and his regrets. Afraid that Matty will never forgive him for his lies and treachery, he wonders what he should do, or go, next.
When the three meet again, will it only be to say good-bye?
