Last to Die by Kate Brady (Book Review)

Title: Last to Die
Author: Kate Brady
Publisher: Grand Central Publishing/Hachette

About the book: I am going to cheat and use the book's synopsis as I read this awhile ago - I don't want to get any details wrong -

A ruthless killer hides in plain sight, someone no one believes is capable of murder. Within a week, six women will be murdered, all punished for their dark pasts. Detective Dani Cole is determined to track down this serial killer whose victims include a young woman she pulled out of a life of crime. Her investigation leads her to a photography foundation and the renowned photographer Mitch Sheridan, a man she she fell in love with years ago but has tried to forget. Dani and Mitch are instantly attracted to each other again, though their troubled pasts keep them from getting too close. Together, through the course of the investigation, they unearth a dark chain of deception that leads to a killer who is closer than they think.




My thoughts:  This was a very compelling book.  The pieces of the mystery came together slowly and the killer was unknown to me until the end.  I was impressed with the way the author dropped hints and  "wove" them all together.  It very much kept in the same style as One Scream Away which was a thriller involving Mitch's brother Neil Sheridan. She is definitely becoming one of my new favorite thriller writers!
