Reading Corner Friday ~ The Last Victim by Karen Robards

Welcome back readers!

Today I am sharing a book I just recently read and just found out after I read it, that it is just book one in a series! Can you tell I just love to read books that are in a series?

The first book The Last Victim by Karen Robards gets you hooked immediately from the start. You are at the edge of your seat waiting in anticipation to see if these characters make it through this horrible event that is happening to them.

After that intense chapter happens your thrown into the present where one of the characters from the first chapter is now an adult. She is kind of freaking amazing too. Not only can she see spirits but she ends up becoming a expert in criminal pathology. Basically she spends her whole life figuring out why serial killers do what they do.

The FBI comes knocking at her door, okay well at her place of employment which is a prison and wants her to come help them out on a case. Dun dun dun. A case that she was a apart of years ago and now has similarities to a case that has just arose.

Dr Charlotte Stone can’t believe her ears when she hears there is a case out there like the one she was unfortunately involved in as a teenager. This case took her whole friends entire family! Scared her half to death. It takes some convincing from a sexy FBI agent but she eventually says yes.

Meanwhile that’s happening an inmate she was interviewing for her study gets stabbed to death and he starts following her around in this whole book. You get the sense they are into each other, which is weird because what you know of him is he’s a killer and then, um hello hes a ghost.

Trust me though the plot thickens more and more as you go and you start to think maybe this guy that died isn’t really a killer after all and that he might just be innocent and on top of that you start liking the doctor and him together.

This is a must read. I will update on the other books once I’ve had the pleasure to read them as well.

So what are you waiting for go read a book!

A sought-after expert in criminal pathology, Dr. Charlotte Stone regularly sits face-to-face with madmen. At the age of sixteen, she herself survived a serial killer’s bloodbath. Because of the information she gave police, the Boardwalk Killer went underground, but Charlie kept her postmortem visions of the victims to herself. Years later, to protect her credibility as a psychological expert, she tells no one about these apparitions. Now a teenage girl is missing, her family slaughtered. The Boardwalk Killer—or a sick copycat with his M.O.—is back. This is the one case Charlie knows she shouldn’t go near. But she also knows that she may be the one person in the world who can stop this vicious killer, especially when she receives help from an unexpected source: The fiery spirit of a seductive bad boy who refuses to be ignored.
