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.

The WORST

What disappointed you about Last to Die?

I couldn't even finish the book because the reader was so poor. Other books by this author have been read by a different narrator, and switching at book 10 ruined the experience of listening to this one.

What did you like best about this story?

Deciding to stop and send it back

How did the narrator detract from the book?

It was a different narrator, and given the fact that this is a series of books, a new voice for every person, made it impossible to carry over from past books, let alone follow along w/ the current book.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It may have, but I could not finish it b/c of the narrator.

Best of All !!!

Tanya Eby is an excellent narrator!! Wide range of characters ' voices. Love her.
Ms. Gerritson has given Rizzoli and Isles, I have to listen from to beginning to end, without many breaks in between.

Interesting book that a tv show is based on

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

I think it has a good pace. It seemed slow at the beginning but once it got going, I didn't want to stop listening.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Last to Die?

I liked the fact that it wasn't just a book where the wrap up to the story was anti-climactic. It held my attention all the way to the end.

What does Tanya Eby bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I like the fact that they don't use any extra music or sounds, just let the person read the book. She did a good job with changing voices though Rizzoli sounded like a man from NJ. LOL

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

The end - I won't spoil it for readers but I will just say it was a good ending.

Any additional comments?

This was my first Tess Gerritsen book. I will definitely check out some more of her R&I books.

Last to Die

Any additional comments?

Last to Die is narrated by Tanya Eby and approximately 10.5 hours of listening. Three tweens are victims, their parents, siblings, and foster parents all die in fires or automobile accidents or are mysteriously assassinated. Why? What do they have in common? Your initial impression is absolutely nothing! Why were these children saved? Thus is the mystery Rizzoli & Isles must solve.<br/><br/>Good story, albeit for my taste, a little longer than necessary. But, that’s just me. Tess Gerritsen has become one of my favorite authors. Every story has merit and I’ve enjoyed them all. Nice plot, interesting premise, well defined characters.<br/><br/>Tess Eby does a good job, you’ll enjoy the narration.<br/><br/>Looking forward to the next! Enjoy.

A story full of surprises .

I could not put this book down, there was never a place where I could leave the rest of the story for tomorrow. Read it when you can give it plenty of time. I think this is Tess Gerriston at her very best. Cliff Foster

Good

There are some things that aren't realistic. Makes it hard to take seriously. I'm a big fan of the author but this is not her best work.

Good book

The story continues Isles tries to take a vacation and Jane followed her gut on some murders and finds a common thread. Constant no slow parts.
