Publisher's Summary

Hollywood history, mystery, murder, mayhem, and delicious romance collide in this unputdownable thriller from master storyteller Katie Alender. Hollywood history, mystery, murder, mayhem, and delicious romance collide in this unputdownable thriller from master storyteller Katie Alender.

Willa is freaking out. It seems like she's seeing things. Like a dead body in her swimming pool. Frantic messages on her walls. A reflection that is not her own. It's almost as if someone - or something - is trying to send her a message. Meanwhile, a killer is stalking Los Angeles - a killer who reenacts famous movie murder scenes. Could Willa's strange visions have to do with these unsolved murders? Or is she going crazy? And who can she confide in? There's Marnie, her new friend who may not be totally trustworthy. And there's Reed, who's ridiculously handsome and seems to get Willa. There's also Wyatt, who's super smart but unhealthily obsessed with the Hollywood Killer. All Willa knows is, she has to confront the possible-ghost in her house, or she just might lose her mind - or her life. Acclaimed author Katie Alender puts an unforgettable twist on this spine-chilling tale of murder, mystery, mayhem - and the movies.

Not what you'd expect

This novel has some themes that I normally stay away from but not being willing to prohibit my tween daughter from reading a book I haven't read I had to read it. I was surprised. Don't start it unless you have time to finish it because you will not be able to put down Famous Last Words. I suppose we will look for more books by Hunter to explore this summer.

Fantastic, a serious "page turner"

If you could sum up Famous Last Words in three words, what would they be?

Fantastic, compelling, engaging.

What other book might you compare Famous Last Words to and why?

None that I've read (or listened to).

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

I thought she was great. She brought life. She did a great job as the different characters.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Yes, it would make a good movie - if done right.<br/>"Famous Last Words - or dye trying"

Any additional comments?

My 9 year old daughter recommended it to me, so I moderated my expectations. But it was an excellent read. Very glad I did.

Awesome As Always!!

I am a fan of Katie Alender's book. I have all of her books.

Although, this book doesn't compare to her first trilogy book, I still like all the books she wrote.

I will continue to listen to all the books she will write in the future.

So if anyone is interested in listening to ghost stories that is not overly intense, then this is your book.
It's not overly great but it's good enough for me.

The narrator was awesome. Her performance was age appropriate with the story and she perform it well.
