    Ominous, engrossing, and suspenseful! In this compelling fourteenth installment in the Lucy Kincaid series, Too Far Gone, Brennan has written an intricate, action-packed, police procedural that has FBI Agent Lucy Kincaid and her fellow law enforcement colleagues delving into a case that on the surface seems to be a simple hostage situation but which quickly unfolds into a complex case involving a suspicious death, a missing assistant, and a pharmaceutical company with something to hide.

The writing is taut and precise. The characters are rugged, intelligent, and relentless. And the two main plots intertwine and unravel into a seamless, entertaining tale full of deception, secrets, corruption, scandal, cover-ups, manipulation, family drama, jealousy, violence, and murder. Overall, Too Far Gone is a multi-layered, captivating mystery that highlights that money and greed are often the root of all evil. And even though it's another wonderful addition to the series that fans are sure to appreciate it can also be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel. Thank you to Minotaur Books for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review.

The other mystery revolves around FBI agent Lucy Kincaid's family. This is book #14 and I haven't read any of the previous books so I was confused at times, trying to keep characters straight. Overall, it worked pretty well as a stand alone; I was able to appreciate the character development and growth even though I came late to the party. The mysteries kept me engrossed and just as important, the characters mattered to me. I especially felt for Lucy's husband Sean and his son Jesse. Their pain and their challenges jumped off the page and into my heart. So did the pain and sadness of Dr. Charlie McMahon, the scientist turned shooter. His story was heartbreaking and I was glad to see him get some justice. Engrossing mysteries, heartbreaking stories, and unforgettable characters added up to an intense, engaging story that kept me up way past my bedtime.

    Two different cases to solve - one for Lucy and one for Sean. The first case starts the novel off with a mad/crazy man in a cafe talking to himself, then waving a gun around and grabbing a cafe worker. The FBI and SWAT are dispersed to the scene and some dialogue between the 2 starts but before any negotiations can take place, the man becomes more unstable and SWAT enters the cafe - the man draws down on them and it's game over - SWAT wins, but with no readily available answers as why this all h Two different cases to solve - one for Lucy and one for Sean. The first case starts the novel off with a mad/crazy man in a cafe talking to himself, then waving a gun around and grabbing a cafe worker. The FBI and SWAT are dispersed to the scene and some dialogue between the 2 starts but before any negotiations can take place, the man becomes more unstable and SWAT enters the cafe - the man draws down on them and it's game over - SWAT wins, but with no readily available answers as why this all happened. The second case concerns Sean and his newly found son, Jesse. A nasty crew including Jesse's stepdad plan a kidnapping with possible murder against Sean and Lucy. Sean is again blind when it comes to family and he isn't as sharp as usual when it comes to protecting Jesse and Lucy. Accidents start to happen and everything is pointing towards Jesse's stepdad and his mom - but the legal authorities aren't convinced. Love the Lucy Kincaid series, guaranteed to keep you guessing, on your edge, and a bit mad at the bad guys. From the blurb: When a man who appears mentally unstable holds a group of people hostage and dies in a shootout with the FBI, Special Agent Lucy Kincaid is assigned to investigate what happened. Up until two months ago, McMahon was a respected scientist—then his wife left him, he lost his job, and was arrested for assaulting a former colleague. The one person who might have answers — his research assistant — has disappeared. While Lucy is investigating this bizarre case, her husband Sean is on top of the world: his son Jesse is visiting for the summer. They are having a blast, until someone follows them. Sean is positive that the surveillance is connected to Jesse's step-father—a man who had once laundered money for a violent drug cartel. But when Lucy and Jesse are run off the road, they begin to wonder if the attack is connected to Jesse ... or Lucy's current case. 2 thumbs up and 4.5 stars

    I don't usually read series, because I find I get bored with the characters after awhile. The Lucy Kincaid books are always enjoyable though. I like that the characters seem to grow and don't get stuck on the same issue all series. The only problem I had with this story was the two plot lines (the work one and the personal one). They just didn't come together as smoothly as I would have hoped. The one thing I loved is that I think Sean only called her Princess once in the entire book!

She's supposed to be a strong woman and he admires her brains, but then he calls her that and just goes against the type of relationship they supposedly have.

    There was a lot going on in this one. We first have the case that Lucy was working on. It was easy to see what was going on with the supposed bad guy from the coffee shop once you knew where he was working. Then it seemed like a race for Lucy and the FBI to figure it out before the real bad guys did more damage. It was sad at the end of the book when all the info came out, sad that certain peoples greed caused so much damage when so much good was at stake.

Of course someone who did the bad things they did before wouldn't think what they did in this book was that bad. I was glad they were found out despite what happened. I only hope that Sean and Jesse win the fight that seems to be coming.

    I can’t believe I’m saying this, the book is too intense. There are so many crisscross storylines and things happening that Left me feeling tired and exhausted (I had to take a nap).

    I enjoy the Lucy KIncaid series. This one was more personal than most that I have read. Lucy is so memorable that you don't need to read them in sequence. The story line is very good, and easy to relate to. Big drug companies can be very deceptive and hide secrets, as anyone that needs medication today or is waiting for a new drug to help with a serious illness knows.

    Brilliant! As always Lucy and Sean are unbeatable! They have to be some of my favorite characters. Jesse fits right in and was so happy to see Sean get time with his son. What a brilliant story! I love parallel storylines. Loved every page.

This book does make reference to previous events, but enough information is given that you won't be lost or confused about situations.

    The title perfectly captures why this is a weak entry in the Lucy Kinkaid series - too far. As in: * too many crisscrossing story-lines, * too much melodrama from the Sean/Jesse/Madison story-line, * too much repetitive explanation from too many characters filling in too many other characters. Going "too far" in this one book won't make me quit the series - but it does remind me that an author can try to do too much in one book

My Thoughts: Too Far Gone was such a fun and suspenseful read - I can't wait to read more books in this series! I'm notorious (as you probably know by now) for starting series in the middle or just completely out of order which is what I did with this book. It didn't matter though as I found myself completely sucked into this book from the very beginning pages. There are two different mysteries or storylines going on. One is the case Lucy is investigating of a man that was shot and killed after holding a group of people hostage at a coffee shop. The second one relates to Lucy's husband Sean and his son who is staying with them for the summer but is possibly in danger. I really found this to be such a suspenseful read because of these two different storylines. You aren't sure if the storylines are going to connect or what is going on exactly. I found myself really caught up within both storylines which was nice as I didn't prefer one over the other. Instead I found myself reading as fast as I could which has happened a lot as of late (those darn reading slumps will do that to you). It was nice to find myself swept away within the pages and reading at every free point that I had for a change. I also really appreciated the fact that it didn't matter that I hadn't read the previous books in the series. I wasn't lost and the author did a good job of including just enough of the back stories from other characters to allow me to get to know them. I do plan on going back and starting at the beginning of this series very soon. I was able to figure out the "bad guys" on one part of the storyline quite easily but it really didn't detract from my enjoyment of the book. By then I was too caught up within the book already and just needed to see how it would all play out. Those last one hundred pages or so were intense! I couldn't stop reading at the point as I just had to see how it would all end. So good! Overall, I really enjoyed my time with this book and am excited to read more by this author. I feel like this was the perfect book to pick up and really knock me out of the reading slump that I had been in. I breezed through the pages and didn't want to set it down. That's the sign of a great read right there! Luckily for me I can go back to the beginning of this series to play catch up. I think I have like thirteen more books to look forward to! I love when that happens and I find a new long running series to catch up with! I would recommend this book to fans of suspense and mysteries alike. You definitely don't need to read the series in order from what I can tell so feel free to start right here if you haven't read this author yet. I did and had a really great reading experience honestly! Recommended! Bottom Line: A book that knocked me right of the reading slump that I had been in! Disclosure: I received a copy of this book thanks to the publisher for the book tour of this book. Thoughts are honest and are my own.

    Pretty bad book. Starts out looking like a 2-for-1 mystery bargain but both stories are executed so poorly that you're better off not reading it unless you're a die-hard fan of the series.

Starts out looking like a 2-for-1 mystery bargain but both stories are executed so poorly that you're better off not reading it unless you're a die-hard fan of the series. Way too many things that were cheap or unbelievable: (view spoiler)[1) Victim has memory issues which started right as he got fired from the company he was working for... on a memory-related project. Anyone who has ever read any book about mind control knows that in pretty much every case, it's the evil pharmaceutical company behind it. Even if you haven't read any, it's easy to put 1 + 1 together. But in this case, SuperAgent Kincaid who is usually able to make deductions that are missing 3 out of 5 logical steps for a normal person, is unable to see the solution because the majority of the book is reserved for the other plot. So in this book, the drug company is pretty much only touched on as early as halfway in the book as a potential suspect, and then wrapped up in an anticlimactic "they were all arrested, the end" type of ending in the final pages because apparently too much time was spent focusing on the other plot. 2) At some point the character Kane is drugged, barely conscious and under attack by an army of goons in SWAT gear. They were specifically briefed but didn't even disarm Kane and he manages to shoot one of the goons before fainting. At this point another goon wanted to put one in his head but is inexplicably stopped by another, because the author didn't want to lose her cool super-soldier character. ??? Literally anyone in this position would've wanted to neutralize the threat (which is what they should've done in the first place), there was absolutely no reason not to shoot there. If you don't want your character to die, either don't put them in that situation, or give them a logical way out that showcases the character's skills, don't scumbag your way out of it like this if you have any respect for your readers. 3) The kid's mother conveniently dies in the final part of the book and the stepdad goes to jail for life. Oh hey, this was a book that spent 50%+ of it talking about parenting and custody issues and how Sean wasn't ever going to see his son again, how perfectly timely it was for the above two things to work out the way they did, if only problems went away this easily in real life. 4) The way this book is set up makes it seem like it's Lucy's story with the memory loss mystery (the Sean plot isn't even mentioned in the GR outline!), but it's really Sean's Custody Battle with Lucy's part resolved in the last few pages as if the author ran out of ink or time. And there were a bunch of other characters introduced for this book that almost served no purpose, maybe it would've been handy to use those pages on fleshing out Lucy's story instead. 5) Other stupid stuff like a drugged Sean being able to fight his way out of a locked room against 3 opponents, one of them carrying a gun and blocking the doorway, while providing distraction for his son to run away. Sure, sounds plausible. Could go on and on but this book isn't worth it. (hide spoiler)] This series is average at best with some books that jump out positively or negatively, but the execution in this one is definitely at the bottom of the rankings. A shame since the setups in the first few chapters were decent, but as a reader you end up feeling robbed more than reading a Dean Koontz mind control book. No reason not to skip this.

    Despite being the 14th installment in this series (14th!), the Lucy Kincaid series is new to me, as is the author, Allison Brennan, so I had no idea what to expect going in.

Typically, I try to avoid reading books that are midway through a series I'm not familiar with, but the cover was so appealing that I accepted without any research. Thank goodness I'm a sucker for a great cover because I would have been missing out. This is a fabulous read! At 496 pages (though that includes an excerpt for the next installment, which I can't wait to get my hands on!!!), it was a bit longer than the average book, but I breezed right through it. In fact, in the last hundred pages, I was already starting to mourn the ending of the book, despite having no idea what was coming next. I just knew I wouldn't be ready to leave the world of Lucy Kincaid so soon (thank goodness there are thirteen books that came before this and another on the way!). So what was so great about it? I suppose just saying everything wouldn't cover it. The character development was excellent. Lucy is a great heroine: smart, passionate, fair-minded, easy going, likable, relatable, loving, resilient, and strong, but not hardened. She is an FBI agent with a psychology background, married to Sean who's family has a security business (intense, high-risk stuff, not security guards), and between the two of them, they have connections everywhere. There were a lot of characters from several different agencies involved in the two investigations covered in this book, and not having read any of the previous books in the series, it did take me a little while to get comfortable with who knew whom how, what agency or outfit each person worked for, and in what capacity. However, that in no way detracted from my enjoyment of the book, instead making me wish I had available time right this second to dig into the beginning of the series and learn all those little things that can't get covered in the "catch up" bits of a later book. So, if I loved it so much (and I did!), why only 4.5 stars? Jesse's narrative didn't feel as natural as the rest of the characters. He's a thirteen-year-old boy, Sean's son and Lucy's stepson, who has been going through a rough time. I'm not sure if it was his maturity level or his thought processes, but it just didn't feel realistic. To be fair, I don't know if the problem is me - I've never been a thirteen-year-old boy, nor are my boys yet thirteen - and I frequently struggle when reading narratives from this age group. I don't know if that's me or if that is an age that is particularly difficult to write. But, it felt off to me somehow. Still, 4.5 stars is tremendous in my book! I sat down with the intent to read for an hour or two and instead read until 1 AM, cursing the fact that I had to get up early the next morning because it was a school day. Within the first few pages, I knew it was going to be well-written. By 70 pages, it was unputdownable, and that held for the remainder of the book. If you love thrillers, I simply can’t recommend this book enough. Note: I received this book from the publisher. I pride myself on writing fair and honest reviews.

    Too Far Gone is the 14th novel in Allison Brennan's Lucy Kincaid series. This time around, Sean is spending time with his son Jesse (who is now out of WITSEC), and Lucy is investigating a gunman who took hostages in a coffee shop. As is typical of this series, the story is fast paced and engaging. I'll admit I prefered Sean's story this time around, but it as good to see Lucy was a case that was a change from her usual and still going above and beyond to get to the bottom of the case.

From when they had guest roles in the stories focussed on their brothers, to their first book together, to now (actually, going back and doing a full re-read sounds fun too, must schedule that in!). It's also enjoy how the characters from past books overlap, and the "guest appearances" from Kane and Jack. Somewhere along the line the books have changed a bit too from a romantic suspense novel to more crime based. I do enjoy the change, but I also miss the experience of getting to know new characters and learning their stories (would love Nate's story, btw).

    I have not read many books in this series. Yet, I do like this author's writing. In fact, it has been a while since I have picked up a book by Mrs. Brennan. After reading this book I became rejuvenated to pick up another book from Mrs. Brennan sooner rather than later. This book can be read as a stand alone novel. It felt like I had not really missed anything having not read many books in this series. To be honest, it was like I had been with Lucy since the beginning. Which I liked Lucy.

The only part of the whole story that I wasn't really feeling involved Lucy's husband and son. That part of the story while there may have been a connection some towards Lucy's case, it played a second string to the main case. Overall, this is a fast and enjoyable read.

My only complaint is that it is a little long being just under 500 pages, but I did read it in under a day.

    A man walks into a coffee shop and proceeds to hold them captive. When he dies in a shoot out with the FBI, Special Agent Lucy Kincaid is assigned to find out what happened and why. All Lucy is turning up is more questions than answers since everything she has found about Charlie McMahon, tells her he is mild mannered and quite normal.

What happened the next two months to him left him broken, paranoid and hiding. From what, Lucy has no idea why or from who. Even as Lucy puzzles out this case, her husband, Sean is having a wonderful time with his son, Jesse, who is visiting for the summer. But when someone follows Jesse and Sean one night then runs Lucy and Jesse off the road, Lucy and Sean find that maybe Lucy’s case is intertwined with the Jesse and his stepfather’s criminal past. TOO FAR GONE is an adventure filled story filled with so many twists and turns that I was on the edge of my seat the entire time I was reading this latest addition in the Lucy Kincaid series. Allison Brennan is a marvelous storyteller and one that just takes her stories to new heights with each book. I adore the Lucy Kincaid series since the very first book where the readers met the Kincaid family. TOO FAR GONE is a perfect addition to the series. This time we see Sean as a father and trying to adjust to that new normal. Lucy’s case is complex and baffling in the beginning to her and the FBI. Add in Jesse’s mother and step-father’s criminal activities catching up with extreme consequences that will leave your jaw to the ground as you flip the pages to see what is next for Lucy, Sean and the gang. TOO FAR GONE is a delight and very addicting. I couldn’t put it down. Allison Brennan is a talented storyteller that will keep the reader enthralled and highly entertained. I love this series and this author and find her books so intriguing and entertaining. With a surprise twist at the end, I can’t wait to see where the author takes Lucy and Sean next. I just hope we won’t have to wait too long for the next amazing Lucy Kincaid book! This is an objective review and not an endorsement

    It might have taken me a lot longer to read this than I intended with all of life's distractions, but I loved this book. Once again, Allison Brennan delivers an amazing Lucy Kincaid Rogan story. As in most of her books, there is a story within a story. Lucy and her fellow FBI Agents need to discover what causes a medical researcher, Charlie McMahon to take hostages in a local coffee shop, only later to point his gun at the FBI SWAT members when they breach the building.

Allison delivers another knock out punch that I never saw coming. It was a wonderful book.

It only left me with one question that didn't quite get answered,which was the photo that Kane took he said he recognize the picture but couldn't figure out from where. I am glad Jesse was able to find kids his age that he can relate to but will he relate his story to them as well from this point on.

    Captivating... This is the latest book in a series featuring Lucy Kincaid and Sean Rogan however it can be read out of sequence. As usually there are several story lines in the narration. In this book a Sean is enjoying a summer break with his newly discovered son Jesse, while Lucy is investigating a hostage situation ending in the death of the hostage taker. I eagerly await each new book, the characters are likable and relatable and Allison Brennan brings them to life beautifully.

    I had not read one of the Lucy Kincaid books for quite a while and now I can’t wait to read more of the previous ones. This has a lot of twists and turns. I had a hard time putting this down. I love Lucy and Sean. It wa nice to get to know Jesse also. I love when they bring in the other characters like Jack and Kane. I loved that there were two different storylines that were going on.

    When you come in to a series at book 14 (without realising it was that many books through, I have got to start checking books before I read them!) things can go horribly wrong. But I completely managed to follow this one even with a 13 book history. A good, full on, intense police procedural which was a really decent read.

So, do I go back and start at the beginning of the series now? I just might.

    One of her best. The relationship between Lucy and Sean continues to evolve and deepen. Family interaction between Lucy and Sean and their clan of relatives also deepens. Adding Jesse to the mix enriches the story. Jesse's more peripheral and continuing plot line is merged completely with the main line of the Kincaid, Rogan, Caruso, and FBI story line.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. After so many Lucy books about sex trafficking, it was a nice change to see Lucy on a different kind of case. Although, I was more interested in the side story about Sean and Jesse. I was happy to see that Sean and Jesse were building their relationship after Sean not knowing about Jesse for the first thirteen years of his life. Of course Jesse's stepfather was still causing trouble and his mom was in denial. It ended on a twist I didn't see coming, but maybe it was necessary.

    Four stars because I forgot how enjoyable these novels are, and how much I missed the characters! The Kincaid/Rogan family saga continues, this time with Sean's son Jesse in the mix. I love how Brennan's stories unfold, how tight knit the families are, and all of the crime/suspense/cybertech stuff. Her research is amazing and her dialog is rich. I'm happy there are still others out there that I can look forward to reading!!
