Last Breath
By Rachel Lee 

With ever breath you take it could be your last. . .

     Chloe Ryder's past experience working as a police officer has given her an added edge to be able to go inside a criminal's mind and discover what actions drove them to break the law. This insider knowledge is what has helped turn her into a highly successful attorney. When she learns a grizzly murder has been committed at her own Catholic Church, she volunteers her services to help solve the crime. She is convinced authorities are wrong in their assumption the murderer is Father Brendan Quinlan. She is determined to prove his innocence by catching the real killer.

     Matthew Diel is one of Tampa's leading homicide detectives. He has been assigned the task of solving the case of 22-year-old Steve King. This case puts him in the path of Chloe Ryder. Chloe is no stranger, for they were once lovers. He finds himself still harboring strong feelings of love as he stares into her eyes. Before he will allow himself to explore his feelings further, he knows they must solve the crime that has brought them together. Together, they are both baffled by the many uncertainties they are uncovering. Will they be able to unravel the many various clues that will lead them to the real killer? If so, will there be enough spark left to be able to rekindle the love that once existed in their past relationship?

     Rachel Lee writes with a dark gritty substance that keeps her readers on the edge of their chairs. While reading this book, I actually felt chills run up my spine as I was imaging the descriptive passages. There is no doubt in my mind that she has proven herself as a master of suspense.
