Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

rescott (The Shadow Hunter) effortlessly intertwines three independent yet equally significant narrative threads in this taut psychological thriller. Tormented since the age of ten by memories of a stalker who escaped after nearly killing her, LAPD officer Caitlin Jean Osborn hides her insecurities behind a facade of fearlessness. Her bravado has even earned her the nickname "Killer" as well as the admiration of the SWAT team's raffish Rick Tanner. The everyday perils that C.J. faces on the job are trivial, however, compared to the danger she faces when she is re-targeted by her childhood stalker and hounded by her adulterous, emotionally disturbed ex-husband. Meanwhile, FBI computer experts race to locate a webmaster who manages a site that illegally broadcasts the private lives of a select number of women over the Internet; unbeknownst to the agents, C.J. is one of those unsuspecting victims. When she is abducted, detectives are unsure whether she's been nabbed by her disgruntled ex or by a chameleon serial killer who uses the Net to spy on his quarry. Without sprinkling his narrative with gratuitous gore, Prescott has managed to delve into the depths of the most twisted minds to produce a chilling, character-driven tale that will revitalize readers on a sleepy, snowbound night.

More About the Author

After twenty years in traditional publishing, novelist Michael Prescott found himself out of work in 2007, his career apparently over. On a whim, he began releasing his older titles and some new novels in ebook form. Much to his amazement, sales took off, and by 2011 he was one of the bestselling ebook writers in the United States, profiled in USA Today and sought after for interviews. To date he has sold more than 1.5 million ebooks and another 1.5 million books in print editions.

His latest thriller is BAD TO THE BONE, the third entry in a continuing series that also features COLD AROUND THE HEART and BLOOD IN THE WATER. A complete list of his books can be found at Amazon Author Central's Michael Prescott page. Please be aware that more than one writer uses the name "Michael Prescott," and sometimes the works of these other writers show up in Amazon searches or on Amazon sales pages. If a given book is not listed at Author Central, it is the work of a different author.

This is my fourth Michael Prescott book.
All have been page turners. I'm not sure why he writes about women heroes, but it didn't seem unnatural to me.
It starts fast, and keeps up a great pace. I never found myself saying, "can we just move along now." For the money, it can't be beat.
Plenty of twists and turns, and I didn't see any technical mistakes.
Child long ago stalked by "the bogeyman", now is a cop and finds herself being stalked again.
She must face her fears or never be sure of herself.

$.99. Why not? I want more.

I have read everything available, on Kindle, by this author. He is spell binding. I look everyday for something new. Once I started any one of his novels, I am really hard-put to lay it down.
From first sentence to last page, they are fast moving, keep you on the edge of your seat, entertaining, books.

When C. J. Osborn was a little girl she prevented her own kidnapping. She fought the attacker and escaped from the clutches of `The Boogeyman'. Twenty years later, she is working as a police officer who is always looking behind her shoulder waiting for `The Boogeyman' to assault her again. This is the synopsis we get at the back of the book, however the story is completely different.
An ex-husband wants vengeance against the woman who divorced him. As he begins to plan he learns that his ex-wife is being targeted by a serial killer and decides to use this to his advantage. He studies the killer's methods and tries to emulate them when it comes time to kill her and therefore commit the perfect crime. The police will concentrate on the serial killer and ignore the ex-husband who already has an alibi. As it is with most of these novels it does not turn out that way thanks to the quick thinking of Officer Osborn and the police.
The serial killer story is what takes center stage in this book. `The Boogeyman' is only important at the beginning and at the end. The plot of the story takes place in twenty-six hours that does not give enough time for character development. Mr. Prescott should have done the serial killer story exclusively, that story was good. C. J.'s boogeyman turned out to be something flat and I think he could have done something better had he written this novel knowing that there would be a sequel. Fans will be disappointed on the way things turned out in this book.

Michael Prescott has done it again -- written a psychological thriller that won't let you stop reading. Catlin, or C.J. as she prefers to be called, is a tough L.A. cop with a past that has been haunting her since she was 10 years old. An intruder, whom she thinks of as the boogeyman, broke into her home and frightened her so badly she has never been able to get the experience out of her mind. Now, he's come back to find her, and this time, he vows not to leave empty handed. A few surprising plot twists heighten the suspense and keep the reader up late at night.
Prescott is not only a superb wordsmith, he writes in the female point of view more realistically than most male writers. "Last Breath" is a must for suspense fans.

Everybody looks for something different in the books they read. Were all different. This book, to me, is excellent. Just like all his others. His stories and the way he describes them are movie quality stuff. Yeah, I know, everyone wanted the hourglass killer to be the main adversary. But the perosn they "did" use, (not letting out any spoilers.)was great. He was dark, perverted, mean and smart all at the same time. Great characterization. He was my favorite character of them all.
This should be made into a movie..big time. It's dark, scary and tough. And lets not forget it has edge. I may be exaggerating, but i cant help it. buy this book. NOW!

I am such a fan of Michael Prescott that I find it hard to wait for each new novel. As I waited for Last Breath's release, I wondered what new characters and new plot twists I might enjoy. Wow! C.J. is so believable...she's just a gal with a job she loves, a past that terrifies her, co-workers who give her a hard time, and an ex-hubby that mollifies her into thinking he might be a decent guy. Wrong! He's nuts, she's vulnerable; and, if that weren't enough, there's another crazy out there who let her get away as a child, but is determined to get her now. I am always amazed at how Prescott is able to scare me to death and yet keep me turning page after page late into the night. I loved the book just as I have loved every other Michael Prescott novel. Once again, I'm waiting for the next one and hate the fact that it will be late in 2002 before I can, once again, be mesmerized by Michael Prescott and his wonderfully believable characters.

This was good, but I would say in my opinion not as good as The Shadow Hunter. But not by much of a margin. Michael Prescott has a way with words that makes you feel as if you are right there in the middle of the action. He is the first author in a long time who has written a book where I found myself tensed and holding my breath as I read. He is a very good author and Last Breath is the third book I have read of his and will not be the last.
