Washington, D.C., post-Miracle: The city has been hit by a spate of very unusual serial killings. The victims are different ages and genders and the locations vary, but each body has one thing in common: it has been reduced to a dried-up, desiccated husk. Special Agent Lucas Avery has dealt with some tricky puzzles in his time, but this is stranger than anything he has ever encountered. His one lead is a pair of names: Gwen and Rhys.
For Gwen Cooper and Rhys Williams, still recovering from the recent traumatic events that shook the world, life is about to get difficult and dangerous again. For it is not just Homeland Security on their trail, but something else - something alien, terrifying, and deadly.

Entertaining but average.
Don't get me wrong, this story isn't bad, just not great.
I always liked the Gwen-Rhys relationship. I actually disliked the TV episodes where Gwen strayed with Owen, or gravitated toward Jack. The TV writers destroyed Torchwood. I am happy to see the books have brought back the quality of Series 1 and 2 of Torchwood.I a
Kai Owen narrates a lot of the Torchwood stories. He is dead on with his Captain Jack and of course, his own character, Rhys. He brings all the characters to life.
I am not really sure if this book is properly titled. Yes, Gwen Cooper Williams is the last Torchwood agent standing, but she is not alone. This is a Rhys-Gwen adventure
