First of all, "The Last Victim" was a book that I had won through the Goodreads First Reads giveaway. I am so glad that I received this book, as I enjoyed it very much. It kept me hooked from the first page and was hard to put down until the end.

Two families are brutally killed in Virginia Beach. FBI agents determine that it is the work of the Boardwalk Killer or perhaps a copycat killer. They approach Dr. Charlotte "Charlie" Stone, an expert on serial killers, and persuade her to help them with the case as she was one of the victims that escaped the Boardwalk Killer 15 years ago. She is reluctant at first, but then decides to help out when another family is murdered and a girl is abducted and she knows she needs to help find this maniac. This killer has been the source of many of Charlie's nightmares.

Not only is she an expert but she happens to see the ghosts of those who were brutally murdered. They call out to her for help until they are finally taken to their peaceful resting place. Only one ghost apparently is attached to her and appears to her quite often. It is perplexing to her as she is the only one that can see him and talk with him. He was one of her candidates she was studying in the prison where he was spending the rest of his life when he was knifed by another inmate and Charlie tried in vain to save him. So it seems they are connected now. He even tries to help her out as much as he can with the case.

It is very difficult to track down this perpetrator of evil. He is very successful in not leaving any evidence worth using behind. What is the connection to all of these recent murders? How many more will have to die? Will he find Charlie and know that she escaped him years ago?

This book will keep you wanting more. This is the first book that I have read by Karen Robards and it won't be my last. I have found an exciting new author to read. Thanks Goodreads and Ms. Robards.
