Last Words: A Novel of Suspenseby Mariah Stewart
Synopses & Reviews
THIS KILLER TAKES THEIR BREATH AWAY.
A nine-year veteran of the FBI, special agent Mia Shields thinks she’s seen it all. But nothing prepares her for the terror that descends upon the idyllic bayside community of St. Dennis, on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, where a depraved killer has left a grisly surprise for Chief of Police Gabriel Beck: the body of an unidentified woman, naked and completely encased in plastic wrap, stretched across the back-seat of Beck’s car. Hidden in the wrapping is a tape recording of the victim’s last, gasping words, terrifying evidence of the horror endured at the hands of a madman. Soon the body count begins to rise as more victims are found, all gruesomely cocooned, their final pleas also captured on tape.
Determined to catch the sadistic killer, Beck and Mia team up and set a trap–with Mia as bait. But their prey is closer than they ever could have imagined. Now Beck must race against time to save Mia from becoming the next victim of a serial killer as elusive as he is evil.
Veteran FBI Special Agent Mia Shields heads for the idyllic bayside community of St. Dennis, Maryland, when a depraved killer leaves the body of an unidentified woman, naked and completely encased in plastic wrap, on the backseat of the car belonging to Chief of Police Gabriel Beck, along with a tape recording of the victim's final moments of life.
