Catching monsters helps FBI agent Kate Hayden keep her nightmares at bay. Now an urgent call brings her back to San Antonio, the scene of her violent past. A brutal new murder shows hallmarks of a serial killer nicknamed the Samaritan. Tricky part is, Kate already caught him.
Either Kate made a deadly error, or she's got a copycat on her hands. Paired with homicide detective Theo Mazur, she quickly realizes this murder is more twisted than it first appeared. Then a second body is found, the mode of death identical to a different case that Kate thought she'd put behind her.
Now Kate and Detective Mazur aren't just working a homicide; the investigative pair is facing a formidable enemy who knows Kate intimately. While Mazur is personally trying to protect Kate, the closer they are drawn to the killer, the clearer it becomes that in this terrifying game, there is only one rule: don't believe everything you see...

This is an excellent stand alone police procedural. In this book the protagonist is a very slight woman,FBI agent and at the age of 17 she was a gunshot victim herself while her father was murdered. Now at 34, she is in San Antonio, Tx looking for a copycat to a killer she's already arrested and whose been convicted. As this killer escalates his crimes become more gruesome and depraved as he takes on the persona of other serial killers she has caught.
The antagonist is obviously a rather warped character. Throughout the book you get snippets of his thoughts before or after a kill and what the ultimate goal is. This person has an agenda scripted out in his head and he's following it.
In the interim the man convicted of her father's death has been released from prison.
This is a well told story. There are no lulls and it kept my attention throughout. It moves along at s good pace, is very believable and I liked that it was told from different viewpoints. About 3/4 of the way through the tension ramps up and gives clues to who it might be, and from that point on it's nail biting anticipation waiting to see what he will do before getting caught.
Teri Schnaubelt does and excellent job narrating this book.
I purchased this book using Kindle Unlimited and paid $1.99.
I really enjoyed everything I've read by this author and this one is no different. It has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.

When a story grabs my attention from the beginning and holds me to the end I refuse to get critical. The Last Move did its job!
While it’s part of a series, this book stands on it own. No need to read it in order.
