My Thoughts - LAST ONE TO DIE (Detective Nikki Cassidy Book 2) Written by Dana Perry

LAST ONE TO DIE by Dana Perry




Book 2 in the Detective Nikki Cassidy series

Ten days ago, straight-A student Jessica Staley ran away from home. Now her lifeless body lies pale and still in an empty parking lot, her unblinking brown eyes staring up to the night sky…

FBI agent Nikki Cassidy’s heart pounds as she takes in the short, dark hair and delicate features of fourteen-year-old schoolgirl Jessica Stanley. It’s another unsolved murder in Groveton, Ohio, just like her sister, Caitlin, fifteen years before. Her family beg her to keep her distance, but Nikki knows she can’t walk away.

What if her sister’s killer is back?

Talking to Jessica’s heartbroken family, Nikki learns that she wasn’t happy at home. Just days ago, she packed a few belongings into her school backpack and left, never to be seen alive again.

Determined to give Jessica’s family the answers she never found for herself, Nikki works around the clock, trawling hours of CCTV footage from the scene. And just when she thinks she’s close to uncovering the truth, a chilling email arrives that confirms her deepest fear. There are more victims, Nikki. Can you ever stop me?

This killer is playing a dangerous game, and he has Nikki in his sights now—one wrong move and she could be his next victim. She’s determined to unmask the monster who has tortured her hometown for decades. But what if the killer is someone close to her? What if it’s someone she loves?

Fans of Lisa Regan, Robert Dugoni and Kendra Elliot will absolutely love this gripping new series from Dana Perry. Prepare to stay up all night!

Last one to Die is book two in the  Detective Nikki Cassidy and is wrrtten by Dana Perry. I have been really been enjoying this series. This book we see FBI agent Nikki discovering a 14 year old murdered and she is brought back to when her sister was murdered, and how that case is still unsolved. 

Once she starts to dig into the case there are some things that pop up that surprises Nikki. Jessica was very unhappy at home. She took off a few days before her murder. The interesting piece is the killer emails Nikki. The killer taunts her. "There are more victims, Nikki. Can you stop me?" 

Oh, I was drawn in within the first few pages. I absolutely loved the first book and the second was a home run. Fast paced, full of twists and turns we are deep into the head of Nikki. Haunted by her sisters murder - and the fact that it is unsolved. Could this case be linked?  

Thank you to the author, publisher and Partners in Crime tours for allowing me to read a copy of this book -- all thoughts are my own.
