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.
This was the first book I read in the series and I’ll definitely be ordering my copies of the other books fairly soon!
“Bad things don’t only happen to other people.”
The story is very well written and beautifully narrated and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy it, from beginning to end. There was not a moment where I felt like it was dragging on because every part was there to serve a certain purpose. I also loved how the tension kept building up as I waited, impatiently, for something to go wrong and for justice to prevail. The characters have this realistic tone to them and so do the topics treated in this book. They weren’t only relatable but also thought-provoking and it got me thinking about our relationship with social media, the pros and cons, and how certain reckless actions could lead to terrible consequences.
In a nutshell, I loved this book and I would definitely be recommending it to anyone looking for a brilliant story!
I would like to thank NetGalley, Bookouture, and Robert Bryndza for sending me an ARC of this book.
