The Last Hunt by Audrey J Cole Book Review

About the Book:

A missing body. A bloody bear trap. Is a serial killer back from the grave?

Tok, Alaska. Cameron Prescott hopes the past stays buried. After believing her murderous husband is finally dead, the fierce survivor longs to start over with her state trooper boyfriend. But her illusion of peace shatters when she hears of a fresh killing that resembles her late husband's grisly signature.

Horrified to learn the evidence points to a member of law enforcement, Cameron questions how well she knows her new man. And as the lies and bodies pile up, Cameron is convinced she's being stalked by a killer.

My Review:

This novel is a sequel and would be best appreciated if the earlier one in the series is read first. Much of the content of the plot in this novel is based on the events from the previous one.

Cole does a good job of building up suspense by giving us initially what we think is a murder scene. Cameron has finally rid the world of a serial killer. Or has she? She thinks he might have survived and is killing again. As we near the end of the novel, we are still in the dark as to who is committing the murders.

There is a good deal of suspense as we near the conclusion of the novel. I was unsure of the true murderer and, like Cameron, did not know who was trustworthy. The aftermath of the suspenseful situation may have been a little too neatly tied up but I still enjoyed this novel.

My rating: 4/5 stars.

You can read my review of the first book in this series, The Final Hunt.
