Publisher's Summary

On a rainy night in April, a chance encounter on a lonely road draws David into a romance with Jana Fletcher, a beautiful young law student. Jana is an enigma: Living in a run-down apartment and sporting a bruise on her cheek that she refuses to explain. David would like to know her secrets, but he lets them lie-until it's too late. When Jana is brutally murdered, the police consider David a prime suspect. But as he sets out to uncover the truth about Jana, he begins to realize he's treading a very dangerous path-and that her killer is watching every move he makes.

What the Critics Say

"Dolan's seemingly effortless prose sets off dialogue that surprises and delights, and his intricate plot is simply dazzling: a twisting, shifting labyrinth of events, characters, and motivations . . . every bit as good---if not better---than the first." (Booklist)

It just keeps getting more intriguing.

Where does The Last Dead Girl rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I like a book that keeps going deeper and deeper, giving the reader things to think about and be aware of. This one did it for me. A good story, a superior narrator and an always changing plot. Good characters, well developed.


What did you like best about this story?

The plot twists. I kept being sure I had things figured out until I realized I didn't.


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

Michael Kramer is among the best of the best narrators. Just the fact that he narrated the book made it a must read for me.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Nothing extreme. A little nervous for the characters from time to time.


Any additional comments?

I listen to a LOT of books. I have listened to 30 or 40 books per year for the last 15 years. This one is not far from the top of my list. I bought the hard cover for my wife. I know she will enjoy it too.

A great, dark read, appropriate reader too.

This was my first Harry Dolan read, and I was way impressed, by the plot, the writing, and the reader. All the characters seemed intelligent (included the deranged ones), which made you care about what they did and what happened to them. Another reviewer said he thought Michael Kramer was a monotonous-sounding reader, but I thought his voice and rendition were an excellent fit to the creepy darkness of this story, the only caution being he sounds like an older man than the protagonist, David Malone. The Last Dead Girl describes an intricate puzzle, keeping you guessing (and listening) until the last piece has fallen into place. Masterful.
