Number one New York Times bestselling author Richard North Patterson-the author of more than twenty novels, including Degree of Guilt and Silent Witness- returns with the dramatic conclusion to the Blaine trilogy: Eden in Winter , the final volume that completes the story begun in Fall from Grace .

Two months after the suspicious and much-publicized death of his father on the island of Martha's Vineyard, it is taking all of Adam Blaine's will to suture the deep wounds the tragedy has inflicted upon his family and himself.

As the court inquest into Benjamin Blaine's death casts suspicions on those closest to him, Adam struggles to protect them from those who still suspect that his father was murdered by one of his kin.

But the sternest test of all is Adam's proximity to Carla Pacelli-his late father's mistress and a woman to whom, despite her pivotal role in his family's plight, Adam finds himself increasingly drawn. The closer he gets to this beautiful, mysterious woman, the further Adam feels from his troubles, yet the closer he also comes to revealing the secrets he's striven to conceal and condemning the people he's fought so hard to protect.

An acknowledged master of the courtroom thriller, Patterson's Blaine trilogy, a bold and surprising departure from his past novels, is a complex family drama pulsing with the tumult of the time and dripping with summer diversions, youthful passion and ideals, class tensions, and familial disruptions ( Library Journal ).

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The conclusion of the Blaine family saga (Fall from Grace, 2012; Loss of Innocence, 2013) finds Adam Blaine trying to protect both his brother, Teddy, and his uncle, Jack, from accusations that one of them killed his father, revered novelist Ben Blaine. Readers of the previous two books will be well aware of all the family secrets and betrayals Adam is wrestling with, and Patterson sprinkles in flashbacks and references to help readers catch up or refresh their memories. In addition to the murder rap his loved ones are facing, Adam is also contending with his growing feelings for Ben's mistress, actress Carla Pacelli, who is carrying Ben's child. Because the answers to the mystery surrounding Ben's death have already been revealed, the novel is a slow burn until Adam, a CIA agent, gets dispatched on a harrowing rescue mission in Afghanistan, and Carla experiences some potentially serious complications with her pregnancy. Those who enjoyed the first two installments will definitely want to see how things wrap up for the Blaine family.--Huntley, Kristine Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In the middling conclusion to bestseller Patterson's Blaine trilogy (after 2013's Loss of Innocence), an avid prosecutor believes that someone pushed author Benjamin Blaine from a cliff on Martha's Vineyard, and wants to charge Ben's gay son, Teddy, or Ben's brother, Jack, with committing the crime. Adam, Teddy's CIA agent brother, deploys his professional skills in Teddy's defense, and brokers an uneasy truce between his family and Carla Pacelli, a former actress who was Ben's girlfriend. Amid memories of bitter competition and harsh betrayal by Ben, Adam grows closer to Carla. Together, they dissect their personal histories, choices, and struggles in lengthy conversations. North is at his best when characters' keen insights lead to broader truths about the human experience. However, heavy-handed observations, repetition, and excessive dialogue and introspection weigh down the plot, which fails to gain traction as a mystery or achieve its potential for psychological depth.
