Book Review

LAST WORDS
by Mariah Stewart

Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Suspense

RT Rating

The pacing of this terrific novel is steady and intense as a small town and its residents are carefully and methodically revealed. The supertalented Stewart excels at both the whodunit and the whydunit, giving her stories a terrifying realism.

The gruesome discovery
of a woman's body wrapped tightly
in cellophane creates a nightmare
for St. Dennis and several small
adjacent Maryland coastal towns.

It doesn't take long for Police Chief Gabriel Beck to realize they have
a serial killer, especially since at
least one other young woman is
still missing. FBI agent Mia Shields
gets the call and joins Beck in the
hunt for answers.

Mia is undergoing a slight crisis
of confidence. She carries a huge
burden of guilt for not having recognized the killer in her own family. Everything points to this killer being
a local resident -- and someone that Beck and his team already knows.
Can Beck, Mia and their crew filter
out the false trails and find the killer before he hits too close to home?
