Publisher's Summary

"With action-packed twists and turns and a pace that doesn't let up until the thrilling conclusion, Her Last Day is a brilliant start to a gripping new series from T.R. Ragan." - Robert Bryndza, number-one international best-selling author of The Girl in the Ice

Ten years ago, PI Jessie Cole and reporter Ben Morrison each suffered a tragedy that changed their lives - and now these two strangers are about to share a nightmare.

For Jessie, who makes her living finding missing persons, no case has consumed her more than the disappearance of her younger sister, Sophie. But left alone to raise Sophie's daughter, she realizes that solving the case has become an unhealthy obsession.

For Ben, a horrific car accident resulted in scars both physical and emotional - and amnesia that has made his life a mystery. But curiously, out of his shattered memories, there's one person he recognizes without a doubt: Jessie's sister. He just doesn't know why. Yet.

But Sophie isn't the only phantom drawing Jessie and Ben together. An elusive serial murderer known as the Heartless Killer has reemerged from the shadows. His next move will cut even deeper into Jessie's worst fears. And for Ben, what happens this time is going to be unforgettable.

Another hit from T R Ragan!!!!

This is a typical T R Ragan book - EXCELLENT!! I've enjoyed her two previous series and the one thing I can say with about as much certainty as I could say about any author is I can count on her for her consistently writing a book that is interesting, entertaining, fast paced and never boring. I know I am always sorry to see them come to an end.
The short of this book is basically about a man who was abused horribly by his father. The father was jealous over the attention the mother showered on her son i.e.: the son stole the mother from him. So the son grows up to be a serial killer. He kidnaps, tortures and kills his victims and did so over the course of a ten year period. That is until our heroine Jessie Cole gets involved. There are a couple background subplots as well that are equally as interesting.
The book wraps up with a satisfying ending. All questions answered and nothing left hanging.
Kate Rudd does an Excellent job narrating.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

A new series by T. R. Ragan!!!

Theresa (T. R.) Ragan writes consistently outstanding modern detective mysteries. First there was the wonderful 6 book Lizzy Gardner series with every novel earning 5 stars. Then came the equally good 3 novel Faith McMann serialized series (the first two novels ended in cliffhangers). Her Last Day is the first novel in the Jessie Cole series. This opening novel in the series is as good as any of her previous books.

Protagonist Jessie Cole is a private investigator specializing in finding missing persons who has not found her own younger sister Sophie who has been missing for several years. Reporter Ben Morrison suffers from amnesia concerning his past life as the result of a horrible car accident. Jesse and Ben team up to find Sophie as Jesse seeks with Ben's help to find and stop a sadistic serial killer who tortures his victims for months before killing them. He is called the Heartless Killer.

Her Last Day has twists, turns, and surprises combined with a fast moving story with lots of action and intense suspense. T. R. Ragan's novels always excel at character development. And with author Ragan you do not have to wait a year for the next novel in the series because she releases a new novel every 6 or 7 months. As usual for Ragan's novels Kate Rudd narrates superbly.

Listeners who enjoy suspense mystery/thrillers and have not yet found T. R. Ragen have a very special treat in store.

Terrible narration

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I'm trying very hard to finish this book. It's a decent story, but the narrator is so bad, I don't know if I'll make it. She over enunciates each word to point that I catch myself mocking her. If she narrates the next book in the series I won't bother with it. I will actually make it a point to avoid any book she narrates.

Great Book! Excellent Narration!

Wow this was a really good book. I enjoyed every bit of it.

I really liked Jessie Cole character, she was smart and strong. I liked Ben too, and have a feeling that a book about him discovering his past will be another book in this series. Just my thoughts.

The story line and plot was great. Lots of mystery, twists and turns, surprises, a really really sicko bad guy. Tons of great dialogue. If you haven't listened to this one I highly recommend it!

As for the narration, it was super! Kate Rudd is awesome. Her male voices are fantastic. She reads with emotion and has an awesome reading voice! Love her!

Not the best audio book

What made the experience of listening to Her Last Day the most enjoyable?

Interesting story.

If you’ve listened to books by T.R. Ragan before, how does this one compare?

This is my first.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kate Rudd?

Maybe anyone - I found her narration rather robotic. Male voices were kind of silly.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No

Any additional comments?

No

Good read

Ragan never fails me. Psychological thrill that will keep you up at night to find answers. Just. when you think you figured it out, not yet.

Gave me goosebumps

I love all of T.R. Reagan's books. If you like creepy psychological thrillers, then this author is for you. Her books literally give me goosebumps ! Her characters are well developed and the story lines are intense. My ONLY complaint is the narrator. I find her voice to be very robotic.. like each syllable is clipped, but it doesn't change the fact that I love the stories the author weaves. Hopefully this will be the beginning of a new series.
