The chance to work a murder case in England with Major Jack Donovan is too enticing for P.I. Cleo North to pass up, but she nearly pays with her life within hours of leaving the U.S.

Undaunted, Cleo perseveres, and soon, she and Jack are digging into a mystery—with origins in World War II—and facing off against a wily opponent who will stop at nothing to conceal the truth. And, of course, they are battling their longstanding mutual passion while trying to sort out their true feelings for each other. That's a fight they're doomed to lose, but neither likes to back away from a challenge.

Lovelace winds up her Cleo North trilogy with, arguably, the strongest of the three books. The Last Bullet blends humor, sensuality and emotional depth with nonstop action and high adventure. A keeper! (Jun., 384 pp., $6.99)
