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?

Prequel novella to The Good Daughter series

Karin Slaughter introduces lawyer Charlie Quinn as a new series protagonist in Last Breath. The first novel in the series titled The Good Daughter will be released tomorrow. I admit without reservation to being a huge fan of Karin Slaughter's books; I have all of them and she has never written a bad or even a mediocre novel or short story/novella. Slaughter is simply one of the best authors of suspense mystery/thrillers. Charlie Quinn promises to be as popular as her other major series protagonists who are Sara Linton in the Grant County series and Will Trent in the Will Trent series. If Karin Slaughter is the author, I will read or listen to it because she never, never disappoints.

Likewise, Last Breath does not disappoint. The story is about an almost 16 year old girl who seeks out lawyer Charlie Quinn to represent her in her quest to become an emancipated minor. Is she really being physically abused by her guardian paternal grandparents who she also says are spending the money her mother left her in trust? Are things really as them seem?

Kathleen Early does her normal outstanding job of narration Karin Slaughter's books.

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.
