Let Me Go (Gretchen Lowell #6)
by Chelsea Cain
Summary: Beautiful killer Gretchen Lowell tightens her grip on Detective Archie Sheridan in Let Me Go, New York Times bestseller Chelsea Cain’s newest nail-biter.
Detective Archie Sheridan is about to receive a birthday present from the last person he ever wants to see again: Gretchen Lowell.
The investigation into Jack Reynolds’s drug enterprise is heating up and has Archie heading off to attend a masked Halloween party on Jack Reynolds’s island, where Susan is a reluctant guest. But the next morning one of the guests is found murdered, and Archie quickly realizes that nothing is what it seems. Only one thing is clear: Gretchen is back, and she’s been closer than anyone thinks. On Halloween Eve, with time running out, Archie will have to risk everything, and choose wisely whom to trust, if he and his loved ones are going to live through the night.

Let Me Go was awesome. It is perhaps my favorite of the series, but it’s bittersweet because, while it doesn’t explicitly call itself the finale, there haven’t been any more books in 3 years, so I’m assuming it was the last book.
All hell broke loose. Leo’s cover may have been blown. There may have been dirty cops in the DEA. Archie took an invitation to some masquerade on the island to try and get Leo out, only to barely make it out alive, get a horrendous birthday gift, and have a body wash ashore. Was there a new serial killer? Where was Gretchen? What the hell was going on? Susan ended up there, confused and slightly in danger.
It was such an awesome roller coaster ride and I have to admit, the whole relationship dynamic between Archie and Gretchen just.. it’s intense and I can’t help but kind of like her, although I’m more afraid of her. It’s such a weird feeling. It was as if the whole affair wasn’t just her trying to get one over on the investigators of her own murders, but because she generally became attracted to and cared about Archie. It makes me curious and I’d love to get a glimpse of her perspective.
I highly recommend Let Me Go. It was awesome and full of suspense.
