I normally love Erica Spindlers books. This however was not one of my favorites. Parts of it were just dull and seemed to drag. The story itself was pretty interesting..once you got around all the filler. It felt like she had an idea for the story and then wasn't sure how to pan it out so she filled in alot of backstory that wasn't needed. Also I really couldn't connect to the main character Patty O'Shay at all. The last few chapters got interesting but..the ending was pretty anticlimatic. A decent read but not one of her best.

I absolutey loved this book. I finished it in two days. I loved all the characters and all their underlying storylines. This book kept me hooked from page one. It is full of twist and turns and a very shocking ending. I highly recommend this book.

Erica Spindler is in my top ten favorite/must read authors for a reason. She has more than proved herself as a talented, page turning author. Her characters are solid and interesting. Her facts are more realistic than a lot of books in the same genre. In LKV, Patti O'Shay, a captain in the New Orleans police department is out to find her husband's killer. The first clues come from an abandoned refridgerator left in Katrina's aftermath. One of my three suspects eventually became unmasked as the killer. This isn't a bad stat. I like to be kept guessing, and Spindler suceeds in that again here. I hate having to wait a year each time for a new Spindler book. If you haven't read any books by this author, I recommend you pick up some of the older ones first. Work your way through them to this one! Last Known Victim isn't a five star book like most of her others, but it still is way above the norm.

I've read all of Erica Spindler's novels. Not only is she a great writer, but also her novels center around New Orleans, near where I'm from. The back cover reads: "In 2005, hurricane rescue workers made a grisly discovery at one of the massive refrigerator 'graveyards'----six female hands." Spindler will keep you in suspense from front to back covers.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the police discover six severed hands in an abandoned refrigerator. A quick investigation finds no leads. Two years later a body is discovered in a shallow grave; its right hand missing. Also in the grave is the badge of murdered policeman Sammie O'Shay. Captain Patti O'Shay knows there is a link between her husband's murder and the serial killer dubbed "The Handyman". When a stripper contacts the police and claims to know the identity of the person found in the grave, Patti jumps at the chance to solve the mystery of her husband's death. But as Patti and her detectives begin to question the accuracy of the stripper's claims, new clues are uncovered.

This is the third book in Spindler's Stacy Killian series. Stacy and her boyfriend, Spencer Malone, are secondary characters in this book. They help Spencer's Aunt Patti discover the identity of The Handyman. The story is fast moving, but does bog down a bit in the middle. There were three characters that were suspects in this book. I guessed the identity of the villain early in the story. My rating: 3.5 Stars.
