I must say I loved the chemistry between Detectives Gerard and Kensington, partners in the NYPD who are trying to solve a double homicide after responding to an early morning call to Bow Bridge where they find a car accident victim and not far away a man with a bullet through his head. If that isn't enough the suspense continues after the female victim is taken to the hospital where she later mysteriously disappears, leaving the detectives no clue as to her identity. Determined to find the perpe...more
A body is found in Central Park and an injured woman is found nearby. Detectives begin investigating, but are also 'fighting' an interest in each other. It turns out that the woman is part of the death, however she doesn't remember anything and runs away from the Hospital. The plot is sufficiently complex to hold your interest. The female detective is 'tough' but also being frightened by a stalker. She also used to have a relationship with the man who is her new Lieutenant. The male detective is...more

Full of stereotypes: crooked police, lying police, antagonistic police, dating police, I'm-better-than-you police, can't solve a case without the criminal writing them a note police, frustrated police, retiring police, a neurotic wife, a precocious pre-teen, a missing wife who turns up after husband is incarcerated for killing her, belligerent/arrogant criminal, and scared witnesses which the police couldn't find. The banter between Gerard and Jesse felt immature. The book is disappointing. I ke...more
Okay, so I was totally prepared to give this book four stars... right up until the last couple pages! Yes, that's all it took to utterly ruin this book for me.
So overall, it's a great book! There's a half-decent mystery, though frankly you know exactly who the killer is about halfway through, then it's like a Law & Order episode as the cops try to find the evidence and convict the bad guy. And there's nothing wrong with that. I enjoyed the format tremendously, especially the way the author s...more

I thoroughly enjoyed Last Witness.

I thoroughly enjoyed Last Witness.

This story had many twists and turns. I can't wait to read the next book in this series. This was a great introduction to this author.
Detectives Tate Kensington and Zachary Gerard of the NYPD have to solve a case involving a well known car dealership owner where evidence points to him in the dissapearance of his wife and the dealership being regarded as a chop shop. The lieutenants son meanwhile decides to have what he thought would be harmless fun with his dads surveillance recording equipment, which assists in apprehending a man who confesses to a priest that he killed his wife. Complicating the proceedings are Detective Ke...more

Written in the style of a good ole’ Castle and Beckett crime, K.T. Roberts brings us a story that is so woven with mystery that you must keep reading! Officers Kensington and Gerard are a dynamic duo when it comes to investigative knowledge and bring a reality to this work of fiction unseen in most other genres.
If you are into mystery and a good-who-done-it, The Last Witness is definitely a novel you must read. The characters and story lines are credible and I cannot wait for the next book. Good...more

Too much repeated info

as above. every thing over and over. I don't think I'll read any more of this author. Just too immature
this was a good story, I kept getting interrupted and had some books to finish before their due date at the library...but I was able to get back into the story pretty quickly. There were some spelling errors...creek instead of creak and alter instead of altar....but those are "excusable" over blatant misspellings. The ending was somewhat predictable and also very unpredictable. Will read other books by this author, definitely.
With much going on, this story is quite engaging. There's a bit of romance. Some threats. Murder. Ill-gotten and ill-handled evidence.

The information Max had and the way it was obtained had potential to make this a 5-star book. I was quite disappointed the story didn't have more to do with this. What he did was small compared to what his father did when the information was discovered.

Kept my interest.
This genre should have been listed as Mystery-Romance. Too many spelling errors and poor formatting marred this book. The story was interesting though and I liked the ending.

Suspenseful throughout. Slight twist at the very end. Read it in less than a day. Great read.
