He watches. He waits. He kills ...

When Jessie Conway survives a horrific mass high school shooting, in the aftermath she finds herself thrust into the media spotlight, drawing all kinds of attention. But some of it is the wrong kind.

Caleb Switch, a sadistic serial killer has been watching her every move. A skilled hunter, he likes his victims to be a challenge to him. Jessie is strong, fearless, a survivor, and now…she is his ultimate prey.

As Caleb picks off his current victims one by one, chasing, killing and butchering them with his crossbow, he’s closing in on Jessie... But will Jessie defy the odds and escape with her life? Or will she be Caleb’s final sacrifice...



Last to Die is an edge-of-your-seat game of cat and mouse that builds in tension on every page. Jessie is a ballsy girl who is determined to escape with her life, she's a great character to read and the perfect match for violent sociopath Caleb. 


There is plenty of action to keep the reader entertained and is the kind of compelling, well-crafted thriller that can easily be read in one sitting. Well written, with believable and interesting characters, this is the first book by Arlene Hunt that I've read.  I'm rather impressed with her storytelling and addictive writing, so it definitely won't be the last.


Special thanks to Bookouture and Netgalley for providing an ARC in return for my honest review.
