Talk about chilling. Imagine waking up next do a dead man covered in his blood and then have trouble finding your inhaler. Once you are able to breath again, you realize that you can't remember anything about the night before. It's enough to send shivers down my spine.
Thank goodness for Mari, Detective Blasco has a 'feeling' that you are not guilty of killing him and will do everything in her power to discover just who the real killer is. If I was to ever find myself falsely accused, I can only hope that I would have such a cop on the case.
HER LAST BREATH has everything that you would want to find in a psychological thriller. A circumstance that is all too real, tight pacing, and characters that the reader can care about. It's another one of those books that you won't want to set aside for any reason. It is the second book of the series but it is so complete in itself that you won't feel that you are missing anything if you haven't read the first one.
I highly recommend this book to my readers who enjoy horror, thrillers and police procedurals. I am off to pick up the first book in this series.
