Readers and listeners who relish heated passion and chilling suspense love New York Times best-selling author Karen Robards's acclaimed novels featuring Dr. Charlotte "Charlie" Stone. A heroine with a keen mind for catching killers and a soft heart for bad boys, Charlie is back in this third sizzling paranormal romance thriller.
Her last whisper
Madness and murder invaded Dr. Charlotte Stone's life when she was just a girl - and made her a woman determined to save others from the horror she survived. An expert in the psychology of serial killers, she's faced down more than her share of human monsters. But Charlie can also communicate with the spirits of those who die violently, an extrasensory skill that has helped the FBI bring lethal predators to justice. Now, after narrowly escaping death a second time, Charlie's ready to step away from the edge - before her luck runs out.
Too bad Charlie is too dedicated for her own good - and too devoted to federal agent Tony Bartoli to say no when he asks her to ride shotgun on yet another risky mission. Of course, she already has her hands full with Michael Garland: the handsome, roguish ghost with whom she's hopelessly in love - a spirit who depends on Charlie to keep him from slipping forever into the dark side of the afterlife. But in the mortal world, beautiful single women are vanishing from Las Vegas hotels at night. All signs indicate that a psychopath is on the prowl in Sin City, and Bartoli's FBI colleague Lena Kaminsky has reason to fear that her missing sister may be just the killer's type.
In a town full of fast players and few rules, flushing out a smooth-talking stalker like the Cinderella Killer might be a loser's game. But for Charlie, the only way to cage her quarry is to plunge back into the homicidal hell she vowed to leave behind - and may not leave alive.

I'm on "Team Bartoli"
I would, as long as the person can suspend belief to deal with the main character's nonsensical affection for a dead guy. I just don't get it... Maybe its because I have background in Forensic Psychology (the background of the main character), but that for me is the main draw of this series, not the romance that I just can't seem to get into.
I love Tam, Charlotte's psychic friend. She sees sense and is a nice voice of reason to her friend.
I do have to hand it to Karen Robards, she knows how to get her characters into some very nasty situations and keep the tension going even if we, the readers, are reasonably sure things will end up all right. The finale in this one didn't quite go down how I thought, but it was satisfying.
The ending was nice and tense, but I was expecting it
It's frustrating reading a series in which I am not interested in the "romance", or the main character constantly checking out the dead guy over the nice living guy, but the murder cases are excellent. I wish the focus was on them rather than the infatuation with Michael, though it wasn't as frequent in this one as it was in the second one.
Not my favorite Karen Robards
