The Last Resort, by T.J. Emerson

The Last Resort book cvoer
Pure Heart is a retreat from the troubles of the world. But the commune has its own problems with financial difficulties and a tragic death. Can the community stay together or will secrets lead to the collapse of the retreat once and for all?
The Last Resort is a psychological thriller set in Cyprus in the recent past.
Sofia’s mother died at the retreat and then she was forced to leave by her grandparents. Now both are dead and Sofia returns to Pure Heart with an offer they can’t refuse: financial security in exchange for denouncing and killing one of their own. The person she considers responsible for her mother’s death is wise woman Quinn but will the others stand by her?
There is a lot of build up as we are introduced to the main characters. I liked the inclusion of background information in the form of private detective reports. The plot becomes more interesting once Sofia’s proposal and revenge is introduced a quarter of the way through.
The book is written in the past and present tense, in 2018 and 2019. There are multiple narrators, some in the first person and others as third person. I found the style to be disjointed which meant I couldn’t easily engage with the characters.
There is some emotion is this book as Sofia believes that Quinn caused her mother’s death even if it was suicide. She calls upon the other members of the Pure Heart community to avenge her mother by killing Quinn which stirs up mixed emotions. My credulity was stretched but the premise of the book is intriguing and I liked the way that the characters give different perspectives and insights into events.
The Last Resort is a intriguing psychological thriller with a cast of strong characters.
