This is a powerful and uncompromising thriller and not for the faint-hearted. It is the third crime thriller from a bestselling American author who 'really has his finger on the way kids think' (The New York Times). It offers all the glamour of Gossip Girl and all the suspense of James Patterson. Blood on my Hands and Wish you were Dead are his previous two thrillers.

Synopsis

Kill You Last by Todd Strasser

Local model wanted: must be tall, gorgeous...and not afraid to die.

Are you dying to be famous...? It seems that every girl in Soundview wants to be a model, singer or actress. They all need super-glam photos for agents and scouts - which works out perfectly for Shelby's photographer dad. He makes a fortune taking pictures of these wannabes...until the girls start to disappear and he is accused of murder. Shelby knows her dad is innocent and is determined to prove it - and that means finding the real killer.

This is third in the series of glossy crime thrillers from a bestselling American author who 'really has his finger on the way kids think' (The New York Times). It offers all the glamour of Gossip Girl and all the suspense of James Patterson.
