Your Last Breath Cover


Things happen in life we can’t control. No matter how hard we try, how well we plan, or how careful we are to make our lives go the way we want, things go wrong. It’s inevitable it seems. The unforeseen problems you can’t control are aggravating. When it’s something you should have seen coming or something you did see but failed to act on, it’s beyond maddening.

It’s like that for misfit, Raymond Lang. Raised in West Virginia; he fled to London when the police were on his tail. Despite other people’s perception of him, he never set out to be a serial killer. He dreams of being an author, of writing a thriller full of suspense. He’s tried many times to write about the gruesome murders he visualizes so clearly in his mind but, somehow, when it comes to writing it down, the sharp images fade. It’s like viewing the scenes through a mist.

All that changes when he realizes what motivates him. His writing inspiration only comes at the end of a violent death, at the moment he breathes in the glorious exhalation of his victim’s last breath. If he wants to continue writing, then he must release his darker side and make it happen. Now, he won’t stop this blood-lust until his novel is completed, but can he finish it before he’s caught?

He’s clever, continually outwitting those chasing him. Even so, he should have known he couldn’t get away with it forever, should have seen his retribution coming, but it still takes him by surprise. Thwarted in his dream, he’s beyond furious. Now, no-one is safe…

If you’d enjoy a fast paced, suspenseful plot involving gruesome murders, blackmail, a car chase, a kidnap, and the sleazy actions of a top politician, then this book is for you. (Adult 18+)

Apart from being a wife for 52 years, a mother of three sons, and a grandmother, I'm also an author, genealogist, amateur artist, a lover of most needlecrafts, and occasional poet. Of the above, my most enduring interest has been writing and I hope to be doing it well into old age.
