Detective Kimberley King knows that the first twenty-four hours in a missing child investigation are the most critical, but with no witnesses, and darkness falling in the small town of Dead Woman Crossing, she begins to fear the worst. She longs to find the little girl with wide blue eyes and an infectious smile, but when her team discovers Piper’s body in a woodland clearing, lying on a bed of moss, something inside her dies.

A gripping, heart-wrenching crime thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat, holding your breath. Last Day Alive is perfect for fans of Rachel Caine, Lisa Regan and Carol Wyer.

My Review:

This is the second book in the Detective Kimberly King series and I really enjoyed the first one, Dead Woman Crossing. In Last Day Alive we find Kimberly a year later settling into her life in the small town with her daughter and mother. Life and work has been relatively quiet until the chilling casing of a missing girl sends the entire police department and town into a spiral searching for a monster.
Last Day Alive has a perfect blend of being thrilling, capturing my attention with the mystery and further developing the characters. Once I started I couldn’t put it down and was surprised by all of the twists and turns and definitely had my detective hat on until the very end trying to figure out just who did it, and why.
J.R Adler is quickly becoming an auto buy author for me and I really look forward to the next book in the series!
