When the body of a young student is found on the driveway of a local Denton home, a photograph pinned to his collar, Detective Josie Quinn is first on the scene. The house belongs to Gretchen Palmer, a dedicated member of Josie’s team, missing for the last 24 hours.

But just when Josie thinks she has it all figured out, the bodies of a young couple surface on the other side of town.

There are so many plots and subplots going in this book, that the reader must be alert to keep up with all the action. Any reader of murder stories wants to solve the story before the end. The author, Lisa Regan, is up to the challenge. It is difficult to keep up with her, let alone solve the mystery . Don't miss the chance to read this hair raising murder mystery.
Det Josie Quinn and her crew delve into a new case with one of their very own at the center. To understand everything the writer jumps back and forth in time, but just when you start to think what in the world is going on, things start to pull together in a way you will never guess.
Lisa Regan has written the 4th book in this series so well, it really is like looking at your kids and thinking oh this one is the best and this one is the most exciting and this one holds the most mystery yet ooh this one is the one that kept me up all night. She keeps everything fresh and exciting. And really rates along side of authors like Karin Slaughter, Lisa Gardner, and Alex Kava. But I promise a read in a series that is bound to be a favorite in any mystery/suspense fans library!
I love this series so much. I feel like these characters are like old friends. That’s what Lisa Regan does to you, she pulls you in and then tortures you by threatening your friends!
Her Last Confession doesn’t disappoint! If you loved the first three novels in this series, don’t stop now. Lisa is a master plotter and this is another must read!
Not only do you get to learn about Gretchen’s backstory and why she is the way she is, but you also get to see Josie interact with her new sister—and new love interest. Josie and Noah sizzle on the pages, even when they’re angry with each other.
Trinity and Josie’s’ relationship is as complicated as ever but also sweet as hell all at the same time. I can’t wait to see how they progress in future books.
In this book, Gretchen is in trouble, and Josie refuses to believe she’s guilty. Even when Noah doubt’s Gretchen’s involvement in the murder of a young man, Josie’s faith in her friend never falters. But it’s more than faith, it’s instinct. Josie has razor shape instincts and her intuition is almost always right. She’s fun to read and I love her take-no-crap attitude.
With this book, we're introduced to some new characters and man are they fun. Between the drunk ATF agent, the serial killer, and the biker gangs, you’ll won’t be bored. I had trouble putting this down and I’m sure you will too.
These books are remarkable. You have such a great attention to detail & it is obvious that you have planned ahead for future books. You provide clues both subtle & a few pretty open ones that kept me involved in trying to solve things myself. These books were so good that I even pulled my Kindle out to read a few pages on my dinner date with my hub.
Josie, the protagonist of the series, is flawed by her past (I thought several times that she seriously needed some therapy). But she is honest, gritty, and smart. I like her.
The stories are intense, but you did not force horrible graphic scenes on us. You know that MY imagination will fill in any blanks needed (or not if that's not my cup of tea.)
I'll read the last several books of this series, but right now I to get some other things done around. Oh yes, that & catch my breath.
Thank you for this series. CJA
Trinity has become a really cool ally. Noah is finally the love interest. (Thank you Ms Regan for leaving out the salacious details! Romance is more enjoyable to read.) The new chief is a jerk, but not all the time fortunately. Baby Harris is a doll. Misty is a responsible and loving parent. Gretchen is a tortured soul who is finally finding some resolution and peace. Even Owen the paramedic is a great background part of "the team".
This is a great ensemble of characters. And the story was really great. Quite a mystery, but not unbelievable. Had a good climax and ending.
I'm definitely looking forward to the next book.

This instalment starts off with the body of a young male student on the driveway of a house.
When Josie gets the call she recognises the area and as she gets nearer she realises it is the home of a close colleague detective Gretchen Palmer who is nowhere to be seen.
Josie and her team have the task to try to piece piece together what has actually happened.
Gretchen turns up at the police station to turn herself in and is not wanting to discuss anything and she becomes hostile. She is not forthcoming and while they are investigating Josie finds out things that makes her realise that Gretchen has been grieving and has been battling demons.
As more and more secrets are being is revealed Josie reluctantly agrees to do a press conference that puts her on a collision course with the wrong person.
I like what is happening here. I enjoy that each character is getting a chance to shine in a story and still make it interesting to the reader. Having had an in-depth look into Josie’s past with book three, it was interesting to me that Regan picked another character who expose and the story within these pages was very intense and shocked me in ways I didn’t expect. The lives of Josie, Gretchen and Noah have become an important factor to the books and as a reader, I live for the retelling of their pasts. I had never viewed Gretchen as anything other than a police officer with years of experience but I had never taken the time to see what kind of character she was and why she was that way. This book offered me explanations to those two points and took me down into a dark alley as the explanation continued. I felt that I connected more with the characters in this book and got to understand more of how they worked.
None of my theories were true and I think the end result was much darker than anything I had imagined. That’s one factor I’m really loving about Regan’s work, I never correctly theorise what is going to happen.
After reading the third book, I did google search Denton to get a feel of what it looked like and that helped me to cement what I was imagining in this book. I focus more on the characters who have become clearer with each page, but the setting is becoming clearer the more I learn of Denton – whether that be in the books or in my own research.
The plot didn’t feel like a book, it felt more like I was watching a film or television programme in this intensity and the detail of what was happening. I could clearly see it all unfold in my minds eye. I rave so much about this book series because I haven’t yet correctly guessed the ending. I read a lot of Detective books and so it has become incredibly easy for me to accurately predict what is going to happen. I love that I don’t get bored with this, that the chase is still on and that I can theorise on what is going to happen without knowing what will happen. I love the element of surprise and shock that I feel when the end is revealed and I haven’t guessed correctly. It reminds me that there is still magic to be read.
Another well deserved 5 stars.
