Book Review, Crime Fiction

Last Know Victim by Erica Spindler

Last Know Victim is book 4 in the Malone series. This book takes place mainly  after hurricane Katrina although the start of the book focuses on the several days after Katrina hit. They way that Erica Spindler dealt with hurricane Katrina, she showed how Katrina effected New Orleans and its people, how it was devastated and the people who stayed to rebuild it. She made New Orleans not just a location but a important character in the story.

The main focus of this book is Captian Patti O’Shay Spencer Malones Aunt and boss. Her husband was murdered when hurricane Katrina hit, 2 years have passed and his murder has never been solved. The case becomes active again when Patti husband police badge in found in the grave with a woman missing her right hand. This connects to a unsolve serial case, which takes the case in a direction the Patti would never of guessed.

I enjoyed that we got to see more of Spencer Malones and Stacy Killian that after 2 years that they are still together, that Stacy has gone back to being a cop. Although 2 years have passed it seems that Spencer hasnt really changed that much.

This book keeped my gripped, when i thought i was knew what was happening and guessed the killer, something would happen and I would be clueless again. There are always more layers to the story than you first realise, it only on the final act that it all comes together.

There is one more book in the series Watch Me Die and I can wait to see what happens next with the Malone / Killian clan.

I give this 4 out of 5.
