Karen Robards brings mystery and ghosts together in "The Last Victim."
Dr. Charlotte Stone was once a young girl who witnessed a horrible murder of her best friend and her family by The Boardwalk Killer. Now as an adult, she has made it her life's work to study serial killers. When one dies in front of her, that's when the awkwardness really starts for Charlotte - she sees ghosts. The ghost of the handsome but troubled (and possibly psychotic) Michael Garland latches onto her and claims he didn't kill anyone and needs her to help him stay on Earth so he doesn't move on. Charlotte has more to worry about than a psychotic ghost, she has been called as a consultant to the FBI for a horrific murder that brings back too many memories for her - it looks like the Boardwalk Killer has struck again. And while Charlotte's ability to talk to ghosts may come in handy as she helps the handsome and sweet FBI agent Bartoli, the case is too close for comfort for Charlotte. And being lured into an ill-fated romance, either with an FBI agent or a hot but possibly crazy ghost, isn't helping Charlotte's state of mind. Can Charlotte figure out who the killer is before he makes a ghost out of her?
This is th start of a really great series with a bizarre love triangle. Readers will be begging for more to see who Charlotte chooses and what case she will help solve next!
