Welcome to my stop on the blog tour today! I’m thrilled to share my review of Her Last Move by John Marrs!
Her Last Move
She’s chasing a killer. He’s watching her every move.
He hides in the shadows, waiting for the perfect moment. Each kill is calculated, planned and executed like clockwork.
Struggling to balance her personal and professional life, young DS Becca Vincent has landed the biggest case of her career—and she knows that it will make or break her. But she can’t catch the culprit alone. Together with facial recognition expert Joe Russell, she strives to get a lead on the elusive murderer, who is always one step ahead of them.
Time is not on their side. The body count is rising, and the attacks are striking closer and closer to home. Can Becca and Joe uncover the connection between the murders before the killer strikes the last name from his list?
When a string of grisly murders take place around London, DC Becca Vincent is assigned the task of identifying the killer. She is determined to prove her worth to her superiors and climb the ranks. Now is her time and nothing is going to get in her way. With a little bit of determination, a little bit of luck and a lot of hard work, the mother of one will succeed. Teaming up with Joe Russell, a super-recogniser in a small yet integral department of the police, Becca and he are faced with a tough road ahead finding the killer. The body count rises. And the risk to their own safety is mighty.
The antagonist in this book is quite something to behold. He is determined to take his revenge, not matter what. Throughout the book, you can really sense his ruthlessness – it leaps off the page. He is someone with no limits whatsoever. The author subtly hints at his past and and gradually we are given a clear portrait of what happened to him – how he came to be the way he is and how his plight for revenge first began.
Becca and Joe are two very interesting characters. They both harbour secrets, pasts that each of them are struggling with. Becca is a mother to a young girl, she is dedicated to the job and desperate to prove herself. When she meets Joe, a charming, intelligent man extraordinarily adept at recognising facial features, she is surprised that a department like his exists. But exist is does. He and his team succeed where others can’t, their talent enabling them to track down and capture criminals. I really enjoyed this aspect of the book as it’s something I haven’t come across before.
Her Last Move is a twisty, compulsive new read that will have you gasping come the last page! Another belter from John Marrs!!
Slick. Twisty. Smart.
