Publisher's Summary

In this gripping stand-alone from bestselling author Mary Burton, an FBI agent must catch a copycat killer. The only difference this time: she's the final victim.

Catching monsters helps FBI agent Kate Hayden keep her nightmares at bay. Now an urgent call brings her back to San Antonio, the scene of her violent past. A brutal new murder shows hallmarks of a serial killer nicknamed the Samaritan. Tricky part is, Kate already caught him.

Either Kate made a deadly error, or she's got a copycat on her hands. Paired with homicide detective Theo Mazur, she quickly realizes this murder is more twisted than it first appeared. Then a second body is found, the mode of death identical to a different case that Kate thought she'd put behind her.

Now Kate and Detective Mazur aren't just working a homicide; the investigative pair is facing a formidable enemy who knows Kate intimately. While Mazur is personally trying to protect Kate, the closer they are drawn to the killer, the clearer it becomes that in this terrifying game, there is only one rule: don't believe everything you see...

The Last Move...WOW

This is the first book I've read by this author...but won't be my last! This had me interested from beginning to end. I kept thinking I knew what was going to happen and then the author would throw another twist into it and it would go a different way. Love this! I highly recommend this to anyone who loves thrillers.

It was ok.

The story was ok. It's evident that the author isn't familiar with San Antonio. The descriptions of the terrain and 'adobe' architecture make it seem like shes describing Santa Fe, not San Antonio. There is no desert in or around S.A.. It's nestled in the Texas Hill country which is full of thick brush and vegetation, rivers and lakes.... not the western desert the author describes.

Enjoyable Story.. NC17 Author!

Mary is a fast-paced author and builds complete characters. The good characters are all flawed in one way or another but do the right thing. The bad characters are truly evil and obsessed with their craft (and themselves).

The only downside is that my 14 year old daughter will have to wait a few years to read these books as they are sexually explicit.

So So - Very Light On Proper Police Procedure

Good book with some real potential. Written by an author that does not appear to be invested in researching the area of expertise for the genre of books she writes. This book is very light on proper police procedure compared to listening to so many Connelly books.

I won't give anything away in this review, but Mary, if you read this, research GSR. That fact that GSR was never mentioned with the husband in the first murder is a HUGE miss. There's quite a few other unrealistic things in the story, but I think I've mad my point.

Talented author who needs to research way more.

I could not stop listening!

The antagonists are as evil as humans can be. The Last Move delivers extreme suspense with a stunning twist at the end. The novel is set in San Antonio Texas where police detective Theo Mazer is working with FBI Special Agent Kate Hayden on a murder case. Mazor's 14 year old daughter plays a significant role. Narration is excellent.

Mary Burton consistently writes winners!

This is an excellent stand alone police procedural. In this book the protagonist is a very slight woman,FBI agent and at the age of 17 she was a gunshot victim herself while her father was murdered. Now at 34, she is in San Antonio, Tx looking for a copycat to a killer she's already arrested and whose been convicted. As this killer escalates his crimes become more gruesome and depraved as he takes on the persona of other serial killers she has caught.
The antagonist is obviously a rather warped character. Throughout the book you get snippets of his thoughts before or after a kill and what the ultimate goal is. This person has an agenda scripted out in his head and he's following it.
In the interim the man convicted of her father's death has been released from prison.
This is a well told story. There are no lulls and it kept my attention throughout. It moves along at s good pace, is very believable and I liked that it was told from different viewpoints. About 3/4 of the way through the tension ramps up and gives clues to who it might be, and from that point on it's nail biting anticipation waiting to see what he will do before getting caught.
Teri Schnaubelt does and excellent job narrating this book.
I purchased this book using Kindle Unlimited and paid $1.99.
I really enjoyed everything I've read by this author and this one is no different. It has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.
