ARC Arrival: The Last Word by Kathy Herman

The Last Word: A Novel (Sophie Trace Trilogy)
by Kathy Herman

Publisher: David C. Cook

About the book: When Vanessa Jessup returns home from her sophomore year of college, her mother, Police Chief Brill Jessup, is stunned to see that she's pregnant--by one of her professors. While Brill is glad her daughter rejected the father's abortion ultimatum, she's also hurt that Vanessa ignored her upbringing and angry that the professor has disappeared without so much as a nickel of child support.

But that's not all Brill's got on her plate. One of her detectives has been killed, and the attacker has threatened to come for her next. When a second cop is wounded, public criticism mounts as Brill attempts to stay alive long enough to catch the perp. And she's trying to find that deadbeat dad, while Vanessa struggles to make decisions about her future.

The killer seems to be everywhere and nowhere. How can a police chief--and a mother--do her job with her life on the line? In a show of grace under pressure, Brill will manage to have the last word, even if it kills her. (back cover)

About the author: Kathy Herman has written fifteen novels, including CBA best sellers Tested by Fire, All Things Hidden, and The Real Enemy, since retiring from her family's Christian bookstore business. Kathy and her husband, Paul, have three grown children and five grandchildren and live in Tyler, Texas. (back cover)
