Her Last Whisper – Jennifer Chase

cover173606-medium

It is Detective Katie Scott’s first day on the job as the leader for the cold case unit for the Pine Valley PD. A young Army veteran, Katie returned home from Afghanistan with her K9 partner, Cisco, and a troubling case of PTSD. Fully rested after her last assignment assisting her uncle, the police chief, Katie is now ready to begin her new assignment. While reviewing some files left for her to review, Katie quickly becomes intrigued with a case involving a young nurse who was found nearly naked and claiming she had been kidnapped. But no crime scene was ever found, and the case was quickly shelved.

As Katie, and her partner McGaven begin to dig, Katie is troubled for the start. The victim will only reluctantly talk to her and appears terrified, fearful that her abductor will get to her, no matter where she hides. Uttering a cryptic clue, “I told the truth” and describing a ‘blue door with white trim’. Shortly thereafter, the victim is found dead, and the case swings into high gear as Katie & McGaven hunt for a killer.

As the investigation ensues, Katie is drawn to a home in an abandoned development, that looks exactly as the victim had described, but with no trace of any crime. As she and McGaven dive deep into the history of the abandoned neighborhood looking for answers, another woman goes missing…and, someone has resorted to leaving clues for Katie – but is he friend or foe?

This is the second in a (hopefully) series of novels featuring Detective Katie Scott and her K9 Cisco. Katie is an engaging, spunky and likeable character with her own flaws as she struggles to overcome her anxiety & panic attacks resulting from her time deployed, as she asserts herself in the civilian law enforcement world. Cisco – well who can resist a spirited dog? A great read, with all of the action, mystery and suspense you’re looking for in a good who-dun-it!! Now I anxiously await the next adventure for this duo!

I received this book as an Advance Reader Copy from Netgalley, in exchange for an objective review.

Hi there! I am Mel and I love to read!! My favorite genres are typically mystery/thriller, adventure/suspense and occasionally chick lit/romance stories (when the mystery/thrillers get to be too much, which isn't too often!) I have just started to write reviews for Amazon, Goodreads and this blog, although I am a novice to blogging, so THIS is a work in progress - as you can see the reviews are numerous and the true blogs are few - I'll hopefully be improving on that as time goes on!! I'm looking to network, give some newer authors some exposure and to perhaps explore myself a bit in this whole process!! I am a critical care turned CDI nurse, recently transplanted to coastal Florida, from New England. (Would love to assist with medical/hospital verbiage/scenes for authors!) I love a great cup (or pot) of coffee, day trips, visiting state parks and other nature made places, and exploring/photographing wildlife. And birds...I am a HUGE bird/nature nerd!! Thanks for stopping by! :)
