Last Look by Mariah Stewart

When a body of a prostitute is found murdered, she is identified as Shannon Randall. This particular news stuns the FBI, mainly Special Agent Dorsey Collins. Why? Because twenty-four years ago, Eric Beale was convicted and later executed for Shannon’s murder. The agent in charge of that investigation was Dorsey’s father.

Now, there are two cases that need to be solved: what happened on the night of 1983 and who killed her and why.

FBI Special Agent Andrew Shields is questioning everyone, filling in missing pieces, and connecting the dots. But it won’t be easy; especially after all these years. Dorsey shadows Andrew’s every move and together they unravel a mystery that will shock everyone.

Okay, so that’s the short version of this story. I loved it. There was so many twists and it just got better and better. It’s actually really frightening because this particular situation where an innocent person is executed happens in everyday life.

I liked the characters – there were a lot of them! But, they all had a purpose. I was almost tempted to write down every character to keep track. All my questions were answered; I enjoyed it!
