The Last Victim

The Last Victim
by Karen Robards

This is the first book in a new series by Karen Robards. At the age of seventeen, Charlie Stone was the soul surviving witness to a serial killer known as the Boardwalk Killer, who was responsible for murdering her best friend. Driven from that moment, she became a prominent psychologist specializing in profiling serial killers. Fifteen years later, the FBI needs Charlie's help because a new wave of killings have cropped up and either the Boardwalk Killer is back in action or there's a copycat in play. Charlie's reluctance of getting involved isn't just because it makes her an easy target for the killer to finish what he left behind, but also because of Charlie's ability. Charlie can see ghosts of the recently deceased. One ghost, in particular, makes this not just a murder mystery, but a romance with a fun twist. This book is a combination police procedural /paranormal/romance/mystery/thriller/humor. -- recommended by Diane E. - Bennett Martin Public Library
