For those fans of the television show Fringe who still need a fix stronger than a rewatch on Netflix can provide, Titan Books has you covered. Author Christa Faust takes the reigns with the new book Fringe: Sins of the Father, the final in her trilogy. Begining just before Olivia Dunham and Peter meet in Baghdad, the book focuses on Peter Bishop and one of his last major scores. Peter has run afoul of ‘Big Eddie,’ a Scottish Crime boss with a global reach. After borrowing a substantial sum from Eddie and losing it in a swindle to an attractive woman, Peter finds himself running from place to place in an attempt to find the money to pay back Eddie before he finds himself in a body bag. When he is offered a large sum to get a virus into the right hands, Peter finds himself torn, but pressed to do the right thing. He meets a gorgeous scientist and learns quickly that this may not have been the first time they have met and she may not be as trustworthy as she seems.
For avid viewers of the show, Fringe: Sins of the Father actually explains what happened to Walter Bishop’s assistant Carla. A huge mystery on the show, it is hinted at several times how she died but we never really get the full story on what happened. Faust handles her details with care that will make members of the fandom squirm with glee over finally having their suspicions answered. This is not Faut’s first rodeo when it comes to fandom books. She has also written books for Supernatural and did the novelizations for the movie Final Destination and Snakes on a Plane.
Faust also has that delightful style that combines modern events (such as the election campaign galas of our current president) with the noir style of a 1940’s detective novel. Her novel Money Shot is a twisting turning look at what happens when a porn shoot goes wrong and her book Control Freak makes 50 Shades of Grey look like a childish fantasy. Still, for readers who are not accustomed to this style, the action comes quick and the ending moves a the speed of a police chase.
Fringe: Sins of the Father is now available from Titan Books.
