He’s your perfect date. You’re his next victim.
When the tortured body of a young woman is found in a dumpster, her eyes swollen shut and her clothes soaked with blood, Detective Erika Foster is one of the first at the crime scene. The trouble is, this time, it’s not her case.
While she fights to secure her place on the investigation team, Erika can’t help but get involved and quickly finds a link to the unsolved murder of a woman four months earlier. Dumped in a similar location, both women have identical wounds – a fatal incision to their femoral artery.
Stalking his victims online, the killer is preying on young pretty women using a fake identity. How will Erika catch a murderer who doesn’t seem to exist?
Then another girl is abducted while waiting for a date. Erika and her team must get to her before she becomes another dead victim, and, come face to face with a terrifyingly sadistic individual.
Gripping, tense and impossible to put down, Last Breath will have you on the edge of your seat, racing to the final dramatic page.
Last Breath has to be one of my most anticipated reads of 2017. One of a few anyway! I love this series and have been dying to meet up with Erika again.
Erika is very much an ice queen. Due to the loss of her husband she has built a very high wall around her and is extremely reluctant to let anyone in. I have to say though, in this book I felt that the high wall is slowly starting to crumble and I’m very much enjoying seeing this new side to Erika. Don’t worry though as the feisty side we have grown to love is still very much present, as you will find out for yourselves!
Erika is not enjoying her new role and is determined to get involved on a case where she is clearly not welcome. Being the strong willed person that she is she soon gets her way. I have to say the case they are working on is a very gruesome one and it’s very much a race against time in capturing the monster who is killing the young women.
I love how the reader knows who the killer is and it’s a case of waiting for the police to discover their identity. I have to say it makes for some gripping reading and felt slightly like a game of cat and mouse. The author always manages to bring something different to each novel making each one feel very unique.
Last Breath is a gripping, nail biting ride of a read. I seriously can not get enough of the authors books and now that I have finished this one I have the long agonising wait for the next one. Brilliant series, brilliant book by a brilliant author, what else can I say!
My thanks to Netgalley and Bookouture for an advanced coy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
Goodreads rating 5/5 stars.
