FBI Zander Wells and his partner Ava McLane arrive on the scene hours later. The crime scene is a mess, but the young woman who called was right, this appears to be a hate crime and it’s only the beginning.
I really enjoy Elliot’s crime thrillers and The Last Sister weaved in history, racism, and hate groups into a suspenseful tale that not only included the current murders, but weaved in those from the past.
The story was light on procedural jargon, but we’re provided just enough through autopsies, and details to feel a part of the investigation.
The Mills family, Emily, her sisters along with their eccentric Aunts added to the tale. Emily has been keeping a secret and their oldest sister left town never-to-be-heard from but the past is about to reawaken.
Elliot delivered a side-romance and I look forward to seeing how it develops over the course of the series. The author’s stories focus on the case but also give us a feel for the main characters and their lives. Allowing the reader to care and connect with the. I appreciated that connection.
