He’s your perfect date. You’re his next victim.

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. 

Another gripping installment in the brilliant Detective Erika Foster series, one that will certainly make you think twice about what you are sharing on social media, or online dating in general. 

Really enjoyed seeing how Erika managed to get onto a case that was outside her current teams guidelines, and seeing how she is managing her career prospects. What is undeniable is she is a good detective and has strong inklings in how to deal with seemingly impossible to track down serial killers. 

I wasn't as enthralled by this case as I have been by others in the series. It was gory, but just didn't really get under my skin. May be that I did't really get a feel for the victims, nor was I really that sure just what the motivation of the villain was. 

I did enjoy seeing how the police tried to solve it, and the teams thought processes. As the book progressed, I found myself enjoying it more and more, and was completely hooked towards the end. 

I am loving the Erika Foster series, and am keen to see where it goes on from here. 

Thanks to Netgalley and Bookouture for this copy of the book which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
