"Readers who relish heated passion and chilling suspense love New York Times bestselling author Karen Robards's acclaimed novels featuring Dr. Charlotte "Charlie" Stone. A heroine with a keen mind for catching killers and a soft heart for bad boys, Charlie is back in this third sizzling paranormal romance thriller. HER LAST WHISPER Madness and murder invaded Dr. Charlotte Stone's life when she was just a girl--and made her a woman determined to save others from the horror she survived. An expert in the psychology of serial killers, she's faced down more than her share of human monsters. But Charlie can also communicate with the spirits of those who die violently, an extrasensory skill that has helped the FBI bring lethal predators to justice. Now, after narrowly escaping death a second time, Charlie's ready to step away from the edge. before her luck runs out. Too bad Charlie is too dedicated for her own good--and too devoted to federal agent Tony Bartoli to say no when he asks her to ride shotgun on yet another risky mission. Of course, she already has her hands full with Michael Garland: the handsome, roguish ghost with whom she's hopelessly in love--a spirit who depends on Charlie to keep him from slipping forever into the dark side of the afterlife. But in the mortal world, beautiful single women are vanishing from Las Vegas hotels at night. All signs indicate that a psychopath is on the prowl in Sin City, and Bartoli's FBI colleague Lena Kaminsky has reason to fear that her missing sister may be just the killer's type. In a town full of fast players and few rules, flushing out a smooth-talking stalker like the Cinderella Killer might be a loser's game. But for Charlie, the only way to cage her quarry is to plunge back into the homicidal hell she vowed to leave behind--and may not leave alive.

I have to say that this book wasn't what I thought it was going to be. I read the other two books in this series and thought this book would end differently. The relationship between Charlie, the ghost Michael, and Tony was a bit strange, to say the least. I did enjoy the suspenseful part of the book while trying to figure out who the bad guy is. But the ending left me hanging. I guess you have to use your imagination and let it end the way you want it to end. I will have to read the next book to see how it really ends.

My rating was barely a two. This is not heated passion as much as repetitious descriptions that had me skipping ahead. It was so boring that I finally gave up one third of the way through and returned it. Yikes. If you want something to help you sleep, this is it.

Dr. Charlotte Stone helps the FBI with their serial murder investigations. She is able to communicate with spirits of those who die violently which has helped bring justice for the families and the murderers. She's on another case with surprising results. This is part of a series but this can be read without reading the other books.

Disappointed with the ending, especially after reading three books in the series to see what happens with the main characters. Guess I have to read the 4th book to have all the questions answered. Agree with others that there is way too much repetition regarding the attraction between Charlie and Michael.

Charlie, and her ghost Michael, continue in their on and off relationship while solving another serial murder case. A little too much angst by Charlie in this book, just get on with the action! Twist at the end leaves me wanting more, again.
