Last to Die

Get ready for an explosive thriller in the latest--tenth--installment by Tess Gerritsen. In Last to Die, Jane and Maura were on their most difficult case yet. When three children lost their parents and their foster parents, they were sent to Evensong school in the wilderness in Maine. But it wasn't just an ordinary school, when every kid have been touched by sadness and violence in their lives. They learned exceptional skills for survival. As they discovered the hidden nuances between the shocking truth of a secret connection between them, there was an underlying cover up of what's truth and fiction, when they were the only ones last to die. As Jane dealt with a conflict in her family,  Maura contemplated a drastic move. Someone terrorized the children in the school, while they get closer to the truth, the explosive ending blows you away that you'll never see it coming.

This was an interesting medical thriller with the twist. I loved how Maura and Jane cared about the students of the academy, who were all special and different, and lost a parent--especially three of them with a common bond. I continue to love the Maine connection for the school. The death scenes were a bit brutal, like a bitter pill to swallow. This would make you hold you breath and leave you asking for more to read after the first page.

Ready to get blown away? Check this out today!
