Publisher's Summary

For the second time in his short life, Teddy Clock has survived a massacre. Two years ago, he barely escaped when his entire family was slaughtered. Now, at 14, in a hideous echo of the past, Teddy is the lone survivor of his foster family’s mass murder. Orphaned once more, the traumatized teenager has nowhere to turn - until the Boston PD puts Detective Jane Rizzoli on the case. Determined to protect this young man, Jane discovers that what seemed like a coincidence is instead just one horrifying part of a relentless killer’s merciless mission.

Jane spirits Teddy to the exclusive Evensong boarding school, a sanctuary where young victims of violent crime learn the secrets and skills of survival in a dangerous world. But even behind locked gates, and surrounded by acres of sheltering Maine wilderness, Jane fears that Evensong’s mysterious benefactors aren’t the only ones watching. When strange blood-splattered dolls are found dangling from a tree, Jane knows that her instincts are dead on. And when she learns of Will Yablonski and Claire Ward, students whose tragic pasts bear a shocking resemblance to Teddy’s, it becomes chillingly clear that a circling predator has more than one victim in mind.

Joining forces with her trusted partner, medical examiner Maura Isles, Jane is determined to keep these orphans safe from harm. But an unspeakable secret dooms the children’s fate - unless Jane and Maura can finally put an end to an obsessed killer’s twisted quest.

    "Not my favorite"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    This is not my favorite Rizzoli mystery. It starts out with lots of suspense, but then fizzles near the end, with the contorted plot nd cast of characters turning very confusing as well. And on a general note: While I LOVE the convenience of listening to Audible downloads on my iPhone, I continue to wonder why the sound is always just slightly distorted enough (as like playing an old record on a slightly faster speed than indicated) to be annoying. Usually the plot and story are intriguing enough to off set this problem, but that was not the case for me with this book.


    Has Last to Die turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What three words best describe Tanya Eby’s performance?

    Compromised by sound quality

    "Just okay."

    This wasn't a waste of time, but I wouldn't recommend it. I didn't really enjoy the narrator. The finish of the story was anti-climatic to the rest, although there was one little twist that was satisfying.

    Where does Last to Die rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's definitely one of the best audible books I've listened to. I listen in my lunch hour and had to turn it off with 50 minutes to go - but I JUST COULDN'T DO IT. So I listened to it holding my hand over my ear even tho I'm on a switchboard. I just had to turn my iPad off every time a call came in. It was truly great with some real twists & turns - especially at the end.. I loved it. Also Tanya Eby is such a good narrator - I'm definitely going to look out for her


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Last to Die?

    40 minutes from the end -to say more would give it away - great ending, totally out of nowhere

    This was a great listen. This was the first book I have listened to by this author and would like to get another. I love the show so was not to fond of the accents that were portrayed. Overall, I would recommend this book.

    Story
    "Contrast of Friends the Important Thing."

    Gerritsen takes her two characters and combines them in a complicated way in this story. It provides an amazing look at the two women, Rizzoli and Isles, in an unusual way. Isles is still connected to the child who helped her survive in the wilderness and Rizzoli is connected to another child who also needs help. I liked the basic plot and its setting which is quite different ( I won't give it away to future readers). The writing of the attitude of teenages is very spot on. Best of all is the performance. Rizzoli's accent always identifies her and when conversations occur, the reader uses excellent mannerisms to deliniate the characters. I haven't quite finished it so I can't spoil the ending but so far it is a winner.

    "Always a Good Listen"

    Another good listen from Tess Gerritsen. Familiar characters from the series that do not disappoint.

    "Good story - too far??"

    Great story - definitely keeps the reader engaged. But...maybe the story goes a bit too far into the truly unbelievable...?

    "Great Story; Narrator Has A Nasal Voice"
    Would you listen to Last to Die again? Why?

    I love Tess Gerritsen's books and this one was no exception...great story and great action.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Unique plot with a surprising ending.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Tanya Eby?

    I pick books based on the story not the narrators voice. I wasn't that crazy about this narrator but the story was good so it was OK.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I get books from Audible so I can listen while I exercise and I never allow myself to listen when I am not exercising because the book is my reward for working out! However I did get pretty impatient to find out the ending of this one.

    "First to be Duped-Rizolli or Isles?"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I think readers of the series might spend their time better by skipping this one. The heroines have become incredibly naive and gullible. The story is a mass of intricate and ultimately unbelievable contrivances.
