Spindler weaves another masterful work of murder and suspense. The backdrop to this crime novel is the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina where, in the aftermath, a ghoulish discovery of severed female hands are found in a refrigerator. Captain Patti OâShayâs detective husband is also found murdered, looters the suspected killers. Two years later the apparently unconnected crimes are inextricably linked. Dark and tense, you might want to sleep with the light on.

If you like Erica Spindler you might also like to read books by Hilary Norman, Simon Kernick and Lisa Gardner.

Synopsis

Last Known Victim by Erica Spindler

For police captain Patti OâShea, the discovery of a dead body is shocking, but part of the job.

A dead body with the right hand severed is disturbing.

But when a corpse is discovered with the police badge of her murdered husband, she is pushed over the edge.

Driven by revenge, and working outside the law, Patti vows to track the monster responsible. But as the killings continue, it becomes clear that she is not the hunter – but the hunted.

Reviews

A smooth fast ride to the end. Spindler is at the controls, negotiating the curves with consummate skill. - John Lutz, author of Single White Female


About the Author

Erica Spindler

Erica Spindler has published more than twenty novels. Her titles have been published all over the world and Red was turned into both a wildly popular graphic novel and daytime drama in Japan. Critics have dubbed her stories as “thrill-packed, page turners, white knuckle rides, and edge-of-your-seat whodunits” and The Times Picayune praised 2003’s In Silence, calling it “Creepy and compelling; a real page turner.”

In 2002, her novel Bone Cold won the prestigious Daphne du Maurier Award for excellence. An RWA honor roll member, she received a Kiss of Death award for her novel and is a three-time RITA award finalist. In 1999 Publishers Weekly awarded the audio version of her Forbidden Fruit novel Shocking Pink a Listen-Up award, naming it one of the best audio mystery books of 1998. Praised by booksellers as “The best suspense novel I’ve ever read” and “A perfect 10 out of 10,” Erica's 2004 release See Jane Die is the story of a woman who must face her darkest fears when her husband becomes the prime suspect in the brutal murders of two women.

Erica and her husband — a man she describes as funny, handsome and way too sassy — met in art school and have been together ever since. They have two sons, born nine and a half years apart. Erica makes her home in the New Orleans area, although she originally hailed from Illinois.
