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.

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

A clever, dangerously twisted thriller that will have fans of Tess Gerritsen and Karin Slaughter gripped until the very last page.

What readers are saying about Last to Die:


'Absolutely relentless in pace ...I became totally immersed in Last to Die. It's a story of survival and there was certainly plenty of tension and suspense to keep me reading late into the evening.' The Book Review Cafe

'A great thriller that is extremely well written and will keep you on the edge of your seat while giving you food for thought. Highly recommended.' Bloomin Brilliant Books

'Oh my! The tension builds and builds. What a powerful and edge of your seat ride!' The Book Club

'This is an astonishing thriller of mammoth proportions and I cannot praise it highly enough!' Little Bookness Lane

'This book needs to be finished in one sitting ...Jessie had a lot of grit and was a strong main character. Caleb was a true sociopath. Put these two characters together and you are in for a real treat. My first book by this author and definitely it won't be my last. Highly recommend reading this. But clear your calendar because you won't be moving until you finish.'Laura's Book Reviews

'Caleb is one amazing character and really showed just what evil could be like. Truly a great book and I will definitely be reading more from this author.' Sean's Book Reviews

'This very intense pychological thriller is among the best of the genre I've read so far - and I've read a lot. I'm not easily scared or shocked by books anymore, but this one got under my skin.' Reading Experience

'A very fast-paced psychological thriller' Swirl and Thread

'A taut, sharp, gripping reimagining of the serial-killer novel.' Tana French
