Dick has fought his addiction with the help of the compound doctor. He agrees to help Steve and his deputies get a better handle on their security setup. But, no matter what he does death and destruction follow. And, it seems that Steve and Jamie have secrets. Now, all Dick wants is to get to Arkansas.
Craven’s third book in the Out Of The Dark series, The Devil’s Due, is fraught with obstacles for Dick at every turn. Those that he seeks to help want to kill him. Heck, everyone seems to want to kill him. It has been that way since the very beginning of this series.
The ending is definitely a twist that I didn’t see coming even with all the clues that Craven sprinkled throughout these books. I’m sure he meant for it to be a shocker, but I found it to be a disappointment. That’s what happens when I want a certain ending and get something entirely different. Good series. And, I like the way it dovetails into the same story world as The World Burns series.
4 out of 5 stars.
