Publisher's Summary

One Last Step (A Tara Mills Mystery — Book One) is the debut novel in a new FBI mystery series by debut author Sarah Sutton.

Two hikers go missing along the Appalachian Trail, leaving only a bloodstained forest behind them, and when another hiker collapses on someone’s porch in New Hampshire, murdered by crossbow, the local police realize they have a serial killer on their hands – and need to call in the FBI. 

FBI Agent Tara Mills is young, brilliant and new to the force. With a promising career in front of her, she faces the ultimate test when she is assigned the case. It soon proves to be more challenging than she ever could have imagined – an impossible riddle that leaves even her seasoned partner stumped. 

Meanwhile, something about the case stirs a darkness within her – a tortured past that even her long-term boyfriend doesn’t fully understand. As nightmares consume her, she only hopes that her past will not come back to ruin her once again. 

As more hikers go missing, and with her job on the line, Tara finds herself on a race against time as she combs through the forest’s trails. Peeling back each layer, she soon realizes that she is up against a true diabolical mastermind. And just when she thinks she has it all figured out, her instincts lead her to the most shocking truth of all. 

Book 2 in the series, One Last Breath, is also now available for pre-order!

Lacks character development

The plot is an interesting take on the formulaic detective drama, but it felt like a lot of pieces that didn’t fit well together. The reader is left to fill in much of the interpersonal character development and just accept the relationships between the characters. The prose is often stilted, unbelievable and occasionally downright silly. It wasn’t an awful listen but it left me shaking my head at various points and not feeling invested in any of the characters, even during the climax of the story.

Good AT mystery

As a Appalachian Trail hiker I'm always interested in an AT book. Having lived in the area the book describeds convinced me to hear it.
I started it and never stopped till the end. Haven't done that in a while.
It's not a perfect book but damn entertaining...

One Last Step

enjoyed this mystery crime novel. it's written in rather simplistic language (possibly because the author writes young adult fiction) but I liked the plot and characters and it was a good story.
will look forward to more Tara Mills books.
