    Absolutely brilliant

    Back in June I reviewed Jennifer Chase’s first book in the Detective Katie Scott series, ‘Little Girls Sleeping‘ and absolutely loved it, so when I heard book two, ‘Her Last Whisper’ was out I just had to read it. The series follows ex-army officer Katie Scott who now works for Pine Valley Police Department as a detective. In book two Katie is assigned to the Cold Cases department to see if she can find any new leads on cases that were filed away months or years early and where nobody was charged with an offence. Whilst going through the files she comes across a case that is only six-months-old. The kidnapping of Amanda Peyton. Amanda was discovered one night by two officers whose car she ran in front of. She was distressed and told the officers that she had been kidnapped, but the location she gave the officers could not be found and without any other evidence, the case was closed for the time being until new evidence was found. Katie is not happy with the way the case was handled and decided to make it her first cold case to work on. On talking to Amanda she discovers that Amanda believes her kidnapper is watching her, waiting to pounce again. Katie also discovers that evidence taken from Amanda on the night was not processed nor did anyone search the location she gave thoroughly. She was dismissed as being mentally ill. Katie’s leads take her to an asylum where a woman claims to have no memory of who she is, but her case is similar to Amanda’s, could the cases be related? Does the woman really not know who she is or is she pretending to protect herself? And who is leaving Katie notes telling her whether she is on the right or the wrong trail? Detective Katie Scott is a fabulous character. Although she is a detective, she was in the army for so long that she thinks more like a soldier. She also has her old partner and service dog Cisco with her who is always on alert and ready to protect Katie at a moment’s notice. The plot for ‘Her Last Whisper’ is harrowing, women being attacked from behind, knocked unconscious, blind folder and taken to an unknown location. The kidnapper rarely speaks to them except he when he wants his victims to ‘tell him the truth’ and gets off on hearing their confessions. Katie is trying to put all the pieces of the puzzle together and has a few suspects in her sights, but she is concerned that someone is playing games with her too. The book is filled with twists, turns, and red herrings and kept me on the edge of my seat, especially the snippet sections from the kidnapper/killer who seemed to be very calculating and unhinged. Just like with the first book I was invested from the first page to the last wanting to know who the culprit was and why he was targeting these women. I raced through the pages needing to know more. The conclusion whilst not a complete surprise was certainly fulfilling. If you love detective thrillers then this series is amongst the best out there, believe me, I have read a lot of them. I would highly recommend ‘Her Last Whisper’, however, although I believe it could be read as a standalone to understand Katie and her way of thinking you really need to read book one first.

    Great to see Katie Scott again!

    I was quite excited to read this book after reading the first book in the series, “Little Girls Sleeping” earlier this year. Katie Scott has been promoted to Detective after the harrowing events of “Little Girl’s Sleeping “ and is now in charge of the Cold Case Division. She decides to follow up on a file, that after first glance, is anything but cold. “Her Last Whisper” was a very good book, and it was great to see Katie back catching bad guys, but there were some parts of the story that felt a little rushed. It just would have been nice to have a little “more”. More on Katie and Nick’s relationship, more on the details of the case, more on Katie and Chad’s relationship. I guess it’s good I’m left wanting more because I know I’ll be back for book #3 to see if I get my “more”. Thank you to Bookouture and Netgalley for an advanced copy of "Her Last Whisper"

    Thoroughly Absorbing

    Her Last Whisper is the second in the police procedural series featuring Detective Katie Scott. Having delighted in the first book in the series - Little Girls Sleeping - I was desperately keen to jump straight in and read this next superb instalment. Set in Pine Valley, California, newly recruited Katie is called upon to investigate the mysterious circumstances when a naked body is discovered in the woodlands by a couple out jogging. Working in her new role in the Cold Cases Department, Katie is horrified to learn that the dead woman is Amanda Payton - a much-loved local nurse and the woman at the heart of an unsolved case she’s been investigating. Once again, Katie brings her warming and personable attributes to this thrilling story, even though she is still suffering the symptoms of crippling PTSD. This novel was a fantastic, solid and well-balanced police procedural that had me glued to the pages and I didn't want to put it down as I was desperate to know the outcome of the story. The exciting plot was very cleverly written being so gripping and suspenseful and wonderfully paced, but not unbelievable. As Katie embarked on an exciting and exhilarating mission to solve the case, all of the time the tension was being ratcheted up a notch as Jennifer Chase hit me with some captivating misdirection and planted a few red herrings. The writing flowed effortlessly as the author’s masterful prose elevated the novel above that of traditional police procedurals. I found myself really rooting for the Katie to succeed. A brilliant, nail-biting and highly recommended read. I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel, at my own request, from Bookouture via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

    An intertaining, compelling read

    I received a free electronic copy of this modern police procedural from Netgalley, Jennifer Chase, and the publisher Bookouture. Thank you all for sharing your hard work with me. I have read this novel of my own volition, and this review reflects my honest opinion of this work. Her Last Whisper is the second of a new series by Jennifer Chase - yeah! I am happy to recommend Jennifer Chase to friends and family. She writes a tight, compelling mystery. Set in the small California town of Pine Valley, Katie Scott is the orphaned niece of the County Sheriff and is appointed by him to head a new cold case department in his shop on her return from active military duty overseas. One of the lucky ones, she was able to bring her working dog Cisco home which helps with her PTSD. Other than her aunt and uncle Katie has no family except Cisco and her fellow military family, most of whom are still on active duty. Several of the personnel at the county lockup are childhood friends, however, and she feels at home in her new basement office. She begins her new job in a new department with trepidation - she is not sure her unexpected mental reruns into the horror of her military days will allow her to be an effective detective. On the bright side, she and Cisco can exercise and train with the official police dogs and trainers of the city and county police, and when she is working in the field alone she can take Cisco to work with her in either her personal vehicle and that issued by the county, as both are equipped with an electronically-opening canine door emergency release. She is also assigned Chad Ferguson as an assistant. She and Chad were sidekicks since they were eight years old, so the fit was perfect. The first cold case she looks into - the one near the top of the top box of files her uncle sent down - is only six months old but is intriguing. Amanda Peyton, a Pine Valley woman and a nurse in the ICU unit of the hospital, is found in the wilds of an abandoned subdivision wearing only her panties and a tank top, restraint injuries to both wrists and ankles and very confused and dehydrated. She says she was kidnapped in the parking lot of the local grocery and held a prisoner for about a week, but managed finally to escape. She never saw her captor - though he had taken the duct tape off of her mouth he kept her eyes duct-taped over the whole time. She had not been sexually assaulted but when he was there he had whispered to her over and over, to tell her secrets, to tell the truth. For long periods of time, she thought she had been alone. She was terrified and disoriented when found, and not making a lot of sense. Her doctor at the hospital sent her to the local South Street Psychiatric Hospital for a 72-hour evaluation but when released she disappears. Feeling like she wasn't being taken seriously, she quit her job, left her apartment, so the case was stalemated and eventually became another cold case. Katie finds her and tries to assure her that they are trying to find her abductor but have very little to go on. Amanda is very sure he is still watching her, and that he will kill her when he finds her again. Katie begins looking for similar cases back through time and finds one from several months before Amanda's kidnapping and that victim too is at the psychiatric hospital, a woman who cannot remember who she is, found wearing only underwear and bruising and the chaffing of restraints. Are they looking for a serial killer? Jane Doe disappears into a more modern psychiatric hospital about an hour away, but she cannot have visitors. Why? And then Amanda is indeed found dead. Yet another woman is found dead in very similar circumstances. And one more woman, Tess Regan, is reported missing... Katie and Chad have their hands full and new clues are few and far between. Someone is leaving encouraging notes on Katie's car at crime scenes. Who? Will they be able to identify Jane Doe? Do the clues tying the Jamison Doctors of both the local psychiatric hospital and the ICU at the local hospital with the abandoned sub-division have any validity? Will they find Tess before it's too late?
