(A Kate Reid Novel Book 7)
LAST WORD BY ROBIN MAHLE:
In Last Word, Book 7 of the Kate Reid series by author Robin Mahle, the reader finds Kate applying to the BAU. She’s also involved in a high-profile murder case. Women, murdered by an unknown assailant, are found with a cloth note in their mouth. On the cloth written in lipstick they find the word Whore. Kate finds Congressman Grant Copeland the only link between the victims. Kate and the team must stop this killer before the bodies mount. Dealing with a high-profile congressman, a cop in charge of the investigation who’s probably on the take and dirty, while waiting to hear from her application to the BAU, Kate has her hands full in this exciting book. My book review of Last Word follows.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
I must say, Last Word by author Robin Mahle’s an action packed roller coaster ride of excitement. I was on the edge of my sit from the first page to the last. Filling this book with many twists and turns, intrigue, action, and suspense, Last Word’s a great addition to the Kate Reid series. Just when I thought I had it all worked out another plot line appeared. Mahle had many threads to bring together in Last Word. Which she did with skill while keeping the suspense at high peak and the story flowing smoothly.
With a variety of characters, Mahle developed to their full potential, you’ll not be disappointed in Last Word. I found Mahle’s detailing of the FBI, profilers, and agents interesting and informative. Needless to say, a profile does not suddenly appear in thirty minutes as it does on television. It takes time to create an accurate profile of the suspect, long hours, a lot of investigation, and hard work. Mahle gave us a fascinating look inside the FBI, as well as, the territorial disrupts between agencies.
