Your Last Breath – Carole Parkes, Doug Lafuse

American misfit, Raymond Lang, fled to London when the police were on his tail.

Despite other people’s perception of him, he never set out to be a serial killer. He dreams of being an author, of writing thrillers full of suspense. He’s often tried to write about the gruesome murders he visualizes so clearly in his mind but, somehow, when it comes to writing it down, the sharp images fade and it’s as if he’s viewing the scenes through a mist.

All that changes when he realizes what motivates him; his writing inspiration only comes in the precise moment he breathes in his victim’s last exhaled breath. If he wants to continue writing, he must release his darker side and make this happen. Now, he won’t stop this blood-lust until his novel is completed, but can he finish and publish it before he’s caught?

He’s clever, continually outwitting those chasing him. Even so, he should have known he couldn’t get away with it forever, should have seen his retribution coming, but it still takes him by surprise.

Thwarted in his dream, he’s beyond furious. Now, no-one is safe…

If you’d enjoy a fast paced, suspenseful plot involving gruesome murders, blackmail, a car chase, a kidnap, and the corrupt actions of a top politician, then this book is for you. (Adult 18+)
