Publisher's Summary

Tatum Knight is a former contract killer. And he's Miami criminal defense lawyer Jack Swytek's newest client. Tatum is the older brother of Jack's best friend, Theo. Theo himself spent time on death row until Jack found the evidence to prove him innocent. Jack isn't so sure about Tatum.

A gorgeous young woman has been shot dead in her Mercedes on a Miami street. Sally Fenning was worth $48 million when she died. Money had never made her happy, so she left it all to her enemies, left it for them to fight over, that is. She named six heirs in her will, but no one gets a penny until all but one of the heirs is dead.

Jack alone knows that heir number six, Tatum Knight, is a professional killer. As the heirs begin to fall, Jack and his sidekick Theo are in a race against time to discover if Tatum is behind all the killing. Or is someone even more frightening, and more dangerous the odds-on favorite to be the last to die?

Critic Reviews

"Grippando, whose best thrillers have been full of imagination and out-of-left-field surprises, looks like he's found a winner in the Swytek series." (Booklist)

Excellent!

Very tight story, if you pay attention, all the information is there to figure out the ending. Even if you do not, you will find that it all fits in the end.

Well worth a listen.

Good book...lousy read

I enjoyed the book, but the audio is nothing compared to other selections/readers. Much harder to listen to in the car, because the audio seemed flat and muted. The reader has some annoying habits, like when he reads children or the lengthy passages in this book that are supposedly electronically-disguised voices. Come on, HarperAudio, get the guy a prop so he can sound authentic!

Good Premise

The premise behind Last To Die is solid, and the writing is very good. The narrator did a good job of conveying urgency in the reading of the novel. However, this novel could have been somewhat better if the "twist" at the end had been more belieavable. Still, I enjoyed the book and would recommend it.
