Publisher's Summary

The fantastic prequel to The Good Daughter, the stunning new stand-alone from the number-one best-selling author of the Will Trent and Grant County series.
Protecting someone always comes at a cost.
At the age of 13, Charlie Quinn's childhood came to an abrupt and devastating end. Two men, with a grudge against her lawyer father, broke into Charlie's home - and after that shocking night, her world was never the same.
Now a lawyer herself, Charlie has made it her mission to defend those with no one else to turn to. So when Flora Faulkner, a motherless teen, begs for help, Charlie is reminded of her own past and is powerless to say no.
But honor student Flora is in far deeper trouble than Charlie could ever have anticipated. Soon she must ask herself: How far should she go to protect her client? And can she truly believe everything she is being told?

Well it ain't Will Trent but...

What was one of the most memorable moments of Last Breath?

Really? If I told the most memorable moment I would also need to say what and why and that would give away the whole story.

Have you listened to any of Kathleen Early’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes I have and although not in my top 10 she does a very good job narrating this book.

Any additional comments?

This is a very good prequel and gives some good background on the main character of this book, Charlie Quinn. She takes on a 15 year old girl as a client who is in the custody of her grandparents and wants to be emancipated. The reasons she gives seem plausible enough but through out the story there are many twists leading to a very shocking conclusion and cliffhanger that I imagine will be resolved/responded to in book 1.
I enjoyed and Recommend this short story.

Best Book of 2017 and 2017 isn't even over.

What did you love best about Last Breath?

Slaughter is brilliant. Rarely does an author, not only tell a story, but makes you feel real heartache, pain, joy, anger and laughter for the characters. Slaughter doesn't tell the story, she takes you, picks you up, and places you perfectly in the world she is writing about. You see what she wants you to see, you feel what she wants you to feel, and you fear what she wants you to fear.

What other book might you compare Last Breath to and why?

Read her other books. Make sure you read them in order - start with the Grant County series, then go to the Will Trent series. They are so very good. As for other books by other authors, I'd recommend Shadow Man by Cody McFadyen. Huge fan of that series, and it is somewhat similar to Slaughter's type of writing.

What does Kathleen Early bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She handles the narration perfectly. Whether male or female, southern accent or New York accent, she is believable. Great pace as well.

Any additional comments?

I usually don't write reviews. However, this was so good, it is too good for audiobook listeners to pass up.
