Blurb (from Goodreads):
Deadly, the fourteenth volume in Sara Shepard's YA Pretty Little Liars series, delivers more juicy scandals, dark secrets, and shocking plot twists. This #1 New York Times bestselling series is also a hit ABC Family original TV show.
High school seniors Aria, Emily, Hanna, and Spencer have all done horrible things—things that would put them behind bars if anyone ever found out. And their stalker "A" knows everything.
So far A has kept their secrets, using them to torture the girls. But now A's changed the game. Suddenly the girls are hauled in for questioning, and all their worlds begin to unravel. If A's plan succeeds, Rosewood's pretty little liars will be locked away for good. . . .
My rating: 4.25 of 5 stars

Who is A.? Is Ali really still alive?
This was a bit of a return to form for this series, and I really enjoyed it!
The girls were still being hunted in this book, but this time they actually went to the police, and confessed everything that A./Ali had been doing. Noted that this didn’t quite work out the way they planned (ha ha!) but at least they were doing something, rather than sitting around saying ‘oh poor me, Ali is still out there, whatever shall I do?’.
I have to say that the twists and turns in this one were good though. It seemed like every turn that girls took, Ali was once step ahead of them, and boy did she pull out all the stops this time. All four of the girls ended up royally screwed at several points during this book, and I loved how entertaining this was! Several of the recent books in this series have been disappointing, but this one was so much better and I was impressed.
The girl’s guesses for who A. was were once again pretty lame, especially when the real A. was revealed at the end of the book and proved to be very clever.
This book did have its issues; unbelievable moments and things that were a bit ridiculous, and once again Ali is back from the dead, but overall I enjoyed this, and was able to look past these things.
Overall; much better!
8.5 out of 10.
