""Dead Last" is a mystery with multiple layers, with Thorn pursuing a ruthless and clever killer as well as diving into his own past -- two paths that will have a shocking convergence." --"St. Petersburg Times""Thorn, that Key Largo loner whose renegade style always gets results, has written another page-turner, this time with a surprising twist. [...]Which, if any, of these leading suspects, is the right one? As if that weren't enough of a puzzle, Thorn gets the surprise of his life in the course of the investigation." --Valerie Ryan, "Shelf Awareness" "Hall combines crisp prose, solid psychology, sardonic humor, and glimpses of an edgy, fast-changing Florida into a suspenseful and satisfying whole." --"Publishers Weekly "on "Dead Last"
