Last to Die- Arlene Hunt


He watches. He waits. He kills …

When Jessie Conway survives a horrific mass high school shooting, in the aftermath she finds herself thrust into the media spotlight, drawing all kinds of attention. But some of it is the wrong kind.

Caleb Switch, a sadistic serial killer has been watching her every move. A skilled hunter, he likes his victims to be a challenge to him. Jessie is strong, fearless, a survivor, and now…she is his ultimate prey.

As Caleb picks off his current victims one by one, chasing, killing and butchering them with his crossbow, he’s closing in on Jessie… But will Jessie defy the odds and escape with her life? Or will she be Caleb’s final sacrifice


My thoughts:

Jessie manages to stop a shooter killing more students at the school where she teaches. She is hailed a hero- but the local reporter denied the chance of an interview delves into her past. This brings her to the attention of a serial killer.
What follows is a really tense, psychological thriller. It draws you in, holding your breath until the final pages where you finally know how it’s going to end for everyone. We follow Jessie making decisions to protect herself, we also have an insight into the mind of a serial killer with Jessie in his sights.
This was a real page turner, keeping me up really late as I couldn’t bear to leave the situation unresolved. I couldn’t leave them in the middle of the drama and sleep! You share in the desperation of her husband, feeling powerless to help but terrified about what could be happening.
I would highly recommend this book to all thriller readers.
With many thanks to Bookoutre and NetGalley for the chance to read this ARC
