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.

    "First time for this Author"
    Would you listen to Last to Die again? Why?

    Yes I would. It was quite an involved story line and quite honestly, I sort of lost the thread in the middle.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Interesting story and didn't have an expected ending.


    What about Tanya Eby’s performance did you like?

    Tanya was very good. I really enjoyed her narration.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Will keep you guessing till the end.


    Any additional comments?

    I will definitely read this author again.

    I mostly listen to books while exercising, which pretty much explains all of the action/thrillers on my list.

    "Good for what it is"

    A little bit lightweight, but a good listen for a day of housework or some treadmill time. Takes a bit of getting used to if you, as I did, started with the T.V. show.

    "A thriller"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Friends and clients. It holds your attention from the beginning. Great for a car trip.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Have to really think to figure out who was killing these families. I was painting my bedroom and the time flew by.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Trying to figure out what was happening to the counselor. Suddenly she was crazy. How had the killer gotten to her.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Seeing how some of the helped support each other.

    the rizzoli and isles series gets better and better with each subsequent book as far as keeping me guessing to the very end. i just never figure it out before tess gerritsen wants it revealed. i thank her for this.

    Story
    "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


    Was Last to Die worth the listening time?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    No

    "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.

    "Stunning all round"
    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
