CRIME REVIEW: Last to Die - Kate Brady


She'll charm you, punish you, then kill you...Mia Kettering is a ruthless killer who hides in plain sight. Indeed, no one believes that a beautiful, wealthy socialite could be capable of murder. But now she's begun her master plan that will leave six women dead, punished for their dark pasts. Detective Dani Cole is determined to track down a serial killer whose victims include a young woman she pulled out of a life of crime. Her investigation leads her to Mitch Sheridan, who once saved her life but then disappeared. With danger hot on their heels, Dani and Mitch unearth a deathly chain of deception that leads to a killer who is closer than they think - and more terrifying than they imagine...


Having fallen in love with Kate’s writing style a few titles ago, it’s become a bit of a guilty pleasure when the new title lands. I pick up some snacks, a couple of cans of pop and then get myself all snuggled into my duvet to get the full reading experience. You see, once you start, its pretty damn hard to put this authors books down. She has a unique writing style that you can spot from a distance backed up with characters that really do leap off the page into your imagination which, when backed up with a really good real world type of scare leave you feeling that you’ve gotten something special. Whilst this is a great thing for most authors, Kate’s writing style takes it further, so much so, that you really will be gripped to the last page.

I would have picked this up off the shelf for the cover alone. Thanks for the review. I'll have to give her a try.
