After having read books 3 and 4 (both of which I've found to be even better than books 1 and 2), some parts of the plot were not exactly surprises (such as what had really
happened to Talia).
It didn't make the books any less enjoyable, but it got me thinking - how will this story end?
Here are my (wild) speculations:
- The Penny Murderer will turn out to be someone that one of the characters know
- Brody will save Nicole
- But in doing so, Brody will sacrifice his life
- Brody then goes to heaven with Talia
And hence, a play on the series title Brody's Ghost
But I'm only guessing. Time (well to be more precise, Mark Crilley) will tell.
