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.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this Series
Dr. Charlotte Stone was no stranger to murder and madness. As a young girl she witnessed the horror of seeing her best friend and friend’s family slaughtered by a madman. Today as an expert in the psychology of serial killers, she faces some of the worst of examples of human monsters. The one thing that makes her unique, be it a gift or curse, she has the ability to communicate with the spirits of those who die violently – a skill that has helped the FBI bring such monsters to justice.
Anyone who has read the first two books of Ms. Robards Dr. Charlotte Stone series will thoroughly enjoy HER LAST WHISPER, Book #3. Once again, Charlotte “Charlie” is so dedicated she is ready to put her life on the line when a call comes in from one of her FBI pals, Lena Kaminsky when Lena’s sister disappears and it looks like another serial killer is operating in Las Vegas.
Add to that the issues Charlie has with her resident ghost Michael who is having issues staying on this earthly plane. As much as Charlie tries to convince herself that she is not in love with a ghost, Michael is not easy to forget, or ignore. Charlie knows that FBI special agent Tony Bartoli is real, handsome, and longs for a relationship, and a perfect match for her, he doesn’t light up her life the way Michael does.
Robards doesn’t slow the action down and from the first page to the last, the action is non-stop with danger, humor, and adventure. Going from the demons from down under who are trying to drag Michael to ‘ghoul city’ to the real human monsters amidst the lights of Las Vegas who are snatching young women never to be seen again. The action is fast, and the villain is hiding well in plain sight. And of course, Charlie ends up in the cross hairs, with only Michael who in his uncorporeal form is of no real help. Will this be the end, for Charlie, or for Michael.
Bottom Line: Wonderful narration on another fabulous entry in the Dr. Charlotte Stone series. I will never tire of this series and hope (PLEASE) that author Karen Robards continues this series forever! Obviously, I HIGHLY, HIGHLY, recommend HER LAST WHISPER and this entire series!

I'm on "Team Bartoli"
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
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.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I love Tam, Charlotte's psychic friend. She sees sense and is a nice voice of reason to her friend.
Which scene was your favorite?
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.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The ending was nice and tense, but I was expecting it
Any additional comments?
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.
