Publisher's Summary

Electrifying suspense, cutting-edge psychological insight, and an unforgettably sensuous love story - these are the trademarks of Karen Robards' sizzling novels. Now the New York Times best-selling author launches a red-hot new paranormal romantic thriller series featuring the fascinating Dr. Charlotte Stone, a serial killer expert whose extraordinary powers lead her from ecstasy to terror.

Dr. Charlotte Stone sees what others do not. A sought-after expert in criminal pathology, Charlie regularly sits face-to-face with madmen. Obsessed with learning what makes human monsters commit terrible crimes, Charlie desires little else from life - no doubt because when she was 16, she herself survived a serial killer's bloodbath: A man butchered the family of Charlie's best friend, Holly, then left the girl's body on a seaside boardwalk one week later.

Because of the information Charlie gave police, the Boardwalk Killer went underground. She kept to herself her eerie postmortem visions of Holly and her mother. And even years later, knowing her contact with ghosts might undermine her credibility as a psychological expert, Charlie tells no one about the visits she gets from the spirit world.

Now all-too-handsome FBI agent Tony Bartoli is telling Charlie that a teenage girl is missing, her family slaughtered. Bartoli suspects that after 15 years, the Boardwalk Killer - or a sick copycat with his M.O. - is back. Time is running short for an innocent, kidnapped girl, and Bartoli pleads for Charlie's help.

This is the one case Charlie shouldn't go near. But she also knows that she may be the one person in the world who can stop this vicious killer. For Charlie - whose good looks disguise a world of hurt, vulnerability, and potent psychic gifts - a frantic hunt for a madman soon becomes a complex test of cunning, passions, and secrets. Aiding Dr. Stone on her quest to catch a madman is a ghostly presence with bad intentions: the fiery spirit of seductive bad boy Michael Garland who refuses to be ignored, though in his cat and mouse game they may both lose their hearts.

Dr. Charlotte Stone sees what others do not. And she sees the Boardwalk Killer coming for her.

    "Narration could have been better"

    I'm not sure why some narrators talk in a quiet breathy voice. It drives me crazy. Ann Marie Lee's voice is great when she introduces the book, but when she starts reading the book, she speaks like she's trying not to be over heard! So annoying.

    The story is great if your into paranormal romance.

    "Awesome"

    I truly enjoy everything I read by Karen Robards! I discovered this series by accident last year. I made extra trips everywhere just so I could listen longer. I also enjoy listening to Ann Marie Lee. She has an incredible voice and makes it easy to picture the story as she reads.

    "ARGHH! Not interested in a freaking DEAD lover!!!!"

    I get it - technically speaking - good writing. However - no interest in reading about HOPELESS romance. Way to close to real life for me. Sorry - too depressing for words. I don't want to be depressed at hopeless love - I can do that on my own time. I don't read ROMANTIC Suspense to be depressed. Big disappointment.

    "Best new series I have read this year!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Victim to be better than the print version?

    This book is interesting, creative and a lot creepy. How do you fall in love with a ghost, serial killer, blow off the best FBI agent you every had the chance to date and still solve the crime and save the girl. You have to read this one it is unique and very interesting.

    "Disappointed"
    Would you try another book from Karen Robards and/or Ann Marie Lee?

    I don't believe I would


    Would you ever listen to anything by Karen Robards again?

    No


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Ann Marie Lee?

    This narrator was sappy in my opinion. She made the main character seem ditzy.

    "Noooooooo!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone that reads trashy "bodice ripper" novels.


    Has The Last Victim turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Mmmm probably.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Ann Marie Lee?

    Don't have a specific favorite narrator. I am open-minded but I don't care for Anne Marie Lee


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Last Victim?

    I would have cut the erotic scene in half! I lost interest before they even consummated the act!
