Author of many popular romantic suspense novels, Karen Robards has created a new series in the genre of paranormal suspense. Dr. Charlotte Stone is a psychiatrist and an expert in criminal psychology, studying serial killers and their motivations. As a teen, she was the sole survivor of a killer known as “The Boardwalk Killer”, and new murders are taking place with the same methods, leaving police to believe this killer has resurfaced. The FBI approaches Charlie, asking for her insights into the case. She has never revealed to anyone that she is able to see the ghosts of the recently murdered, and despite her reluctance to become involved in the case and with the spirits of the murdered, she agrees to help with the case. Along with the FBI, Charlie has unexpected assistance from the ghost of a murdered prisoner that she had been interviewing, Michael Garland. The Last Victim is the first in a planned series featuring Dr. Charlotte Stone and her ghostly assistant Michael garland, and the series is off to an exciting start.
