The body count is rising…and the clock is ticking.
When a young woman is attacked and left fighting to survive in hospital, the police are pulled into a race against time to save her life. But just 24 hours later, she dies and a deadly tattoo is discovered on her body.
And when another young woman disappears, Detective Francis Sullivan and his team fear a serial killer walks the streets of Brighton.
His team identify a suspect, Alex Mullins, son of Francis’s lover, Marni. Can Francis forget their shared past and save the next victim before it is too late?
A gripping crime thriller from the author of The Tattoo Thief.
Her Last Breath is the second book in the DI Sullivan series and an absolute belter of a read. There is enough background in my personal opinion for this one to work as a stand alone if you haven’t yet had the pleasure of reading The Tattoo Thief.
The murders are quite horrific in the story but boy does it make for some compulsive reading. I wanted to turn my head away from the horrors unfolding in front of me, yet the authors writing had me hooked and unable to tear my eyes away from the pages.
Crime stories really don’t come anymore complex than this. Nothing is straight forward. Poor Alex is being torn in many directions in his personal life as well as being a suspect in a murder case. I really felt sorry for this young man who seems to be misunderstood by everyone.
You can feel the urgency throughout, with the pace and tension getting turned up a notch the further into the story we go. The climax was pretty much breath taking as I didn’t dare breath as more peoples lives come under threat.
Her Last Breath is an adrenaline fuelled read that had me clinging on for dear life. I couldn’t devour this book quickly enough as I was desperate to know who the killer was. I really enjoyed the first book in the series but by heck, with this one, the author has knocked it out of the park. Absolutely loved it.
My thanks to NetGalley and Trapeze Books for a readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
