Last Gasp by Carla Cassidy. Publisher: Signet, April 2009
She lives in the present – with a son she adores and the perfect job – and dreams of the future. But single mom Allison Clemmins never lets herself relive the day, years ago, when she found her mother and siblings murdered. Ever since, she’s hated the man convicted for the crimes; her own father. But another man may now have a different side to the story…
Reeling from the possibility of her father’s innocence, Allison lets attorney Seth Walker unearth long-dead secrets from people who could have spoken up years ago. In return, Seth offers her the one thing missing from her life; the ability to trust a man. But as fate finds the pair in each other’s arms, a psychotic killer makes himself known – and now everything Allison holds dear hangs in the balance.
I could not put this book down. What a thrilling ride. My rating: 4 stars
