Ok this prequel got me all ready to read the Good Daughter. So this is a short story not a full length novel. I have read books from the Grant County series by Karin Slaughter, which I loved, so I had quite some expectations when I started reading. And Last Breath definately did not disappoint.
I really liked the characters Charlie and Flora. Especially their interaction this in combination with some serious plot twists made this short story a really good read. The entire story works up to a very nice ending that I did not see coming and I do like a story that can set me on the wrong track.
I am always very impressed to see what Karin Slaughter brings to the table every time a read a book by her. I love the stories she tells and definately the way she tells them. It is nearly impossible to stop reading once started.
Now I am lucky enough that I can start Good Daughter right away (which I already have) so let's see what she has in store for me this time.
My rating: 5/5
