Book Description

The Las Vegas Mayoral race is heating up, and the incumbent doesn’t have a prayer. Wealthy real estate speculator Nick Campenelli, who wants to legalize prostitution in Clark County, and former pastor Louis St. Louis, running on a 'clean-up-Vegas-by-getting-rid-of-the-whores' platform, are the front runners.

They’re also front runners on the suspect list for a string of murders. Kennedy O’Brien, four-year detective with cop blood running in her veins, and her partner Wilder “Wild Thing” James, a veteran, are determined to find the man who’s murdering prostitutes who work the wrong side of the street, and they don’t care how important or politically active he is.

The killer is a man with a mission. He stalks the women before he kills them, leaving a “BEFORE” photo on their bodies, and sending an “AFTER” shot to the local news hound. Ed Hershey, an aging newscaster with just the right amount of grey in his hair, is determined to turn this story into a network gig, and his interference, along with the LVTVS legal team, are making Kennedy and Wilder look bad. Campenelli’s good looks and charm, and St. Louis’ vitriolic hatred of prostitutes are muddying the waters too, and now the killer seems to have taken a liking to Kennedy.

So the big question remains. Can she get him before he gets her?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Title August 18, 2011
By Suzy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great concept in a title. Do the eyes really die last? Do they reflect the last vision? This book has suspects, from the "can't be him, He is too obvious" to the 'well, it might be ...." with others in between. There are suspects that you can dislike and hope they are the villain and others that you like and hope they haven't crossed that line of control.
The author takes the time to build up each of the major characters so you can get to know them and empathize with them. Strong characters that have human flaws that makes it easier to identify with them. Bring on more of these books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great first book! May 27, 2011
By Beanie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Excellent book. Love the characters, especially Kennedy, and hope they will return. Love it when there are several choices for the villain and its not just someone out of the blue at the end. Also the book didn't just race in the last few pages to a conclusion. That always leaves me wondering what I missed. Would read this author again in a heartbeat.

Look out Stephanie Plum, there's a new leading lady on the scene for fans of female-driven mysteries with a healthy dose of sass - all set in a town (Vegas, baby!) ripe for adventure and romance. Great for a summer beach read. The lead character, Kennedy, has the detective chops of JD Robb's Eve Dallas and the humor and wit of Evanovich's Plum. Huge fan of these types of books and hope to see this character back again SOON! Vegas politics, serial killer mystery plot, one sexy suspect and a leading lady you'd love to grab a margarita with...what's not to love??? Thanks to the author for one of the most enjoyable plane reads I've had in a while!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read June 20, 2012
By Marie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow! This was my first book I've read on my new Kindle app. and it was a good one to start with. I think the author shows a lot of promise. Her characters actually felt like real people, even the flamboyant Elvis. Also, she had me going back and forth about who the killer was throughout most of the book. And whatever the format problem was, it's obviously been fixed. I would probably read the next book if this became a series. Oh, and I LOVE the title! Great name for a murder mystery!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great thriller!!! January 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I actually started reading this book because the cover intrigued me. The murder of prostitutes was interesting and her was committing these murders kept me rehashing for the book each night. I never was able to figure out who was killing these prostitutes. Detectives Kennedy and Wilder made a great and funny duo. The last few chapters kept me up. I couldn't wait to find out who the murderer was and why he committed them. I was surprised at the end! Love the writing and would definitely read another book by this author.

The Eyes Die Last by Teri Riggs is a 2011 Amazon Digital Services publication. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.

“ Before turning to leave he took a lingering last look at her body. Her eyes, frozen in death,stared blankly up at him. Could she still see him? Strangely fascinated, he leaned in to closer look, ' I'll be damned', he said. 'The eyes die last'.

Prostitutes get murdered all the time ...who cares? That's pretty much the consensus. But, when one, then two, then three get murdered, well, the not only are the cops interested but the media too.

The hot Las Vegas heat compounds an investigation into the death of a prostitute. Kennedy comes from a long line of cops and her partner Wilder “Wild Thing” James is veteran on the force. This killer is intent on drawing attention to himself by taking “before and after” photos, proving he had planned out the murders by first stalking the victims.
With a heated mayoral race going on and a bitter newspaper journalist thrown into the mix and more victims piling up, Las Vegas has just about reached it's boiling point.

This good old fashioned police procedural puts me in mind of the thrillers I grew up reading and the cop shows I loved to watch in the 1990's. The dialogue is even a little old school and the story is pretty much straight to the point with personal lives of the detectives kept at a low key and the focus squarely on the investigation, not that there isn't just a little romance going on, it's just not the focal point. This is not romantic suspense.
I love these types of no nonsense thrillers that do not rely upon shootouts, explosions and other bells and whistles to capture the readers attention.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Great But Not Horrible
The story was good, but you can tell this is a new author. Some of her writing was a little on the B movie side. I will be reading her next book. I think she has promise.
