The Last Word by Kathy Herman is book #2 in her Sophie Trace Trilogy. Kathy Herman never disappoints and this is another fine example of her work. I hadn't read the first book in this series yet (The Real Enemy) but was able to follow the storyline without any confusion.
Police Chief Brill Jessup is being threatened by someone she helped put in prison several years ago, he's murdered several police officers and she's next on his list. Brill evades him while dealing with her pregnant-with-my-professor's-baby college age daughter who is home for the summer. Will Vanessa keep the baby or give him up for adoption? The professor has vanished from her life and from the school. Brill looks into his past and finds dead ends. Is he a threat to her family or is it something else?
When the bad guy finally catches up with Brill the story explodes with an unexpected twist that you've got to read to believe!
Fabulous winter reading. Kathy Herman does it again and I can't wait to read the rest of the series.
