Review by: Bnenny Harriso on May 10, 2012 :
Like the last reviewer, I like a good cop story and this is defiantly that. I've read most of Patterson’s books though his early books, when he was writing by himself, are better, in my mind, than his later books that he is co-authoring. I really think if I were to compare this author’s writings to anyone’s, it would have to be Patterson. In some ways, this was a better book than any of Patterson's books. It was easy to like the characters you were supposed to like and hate the others. They were fully developed and you could almost feel their joys and pains. The book starts fast and furious and never stops though it does slow down a bit at times.

I looked for other books by this author but there is only one other novel, a fantasy. Generally I don’t like that type of book, but considering how much I liked this one, I may give that one a read as well. I hope he writes other books like this one soon.

I don't know what the reviewer(?) below is talking about. I had no trouble with the book.

I always listen to books on tape while I am driving to work and usually it is some type of cop book or murder mystery, so when I got a Kindle for my birthday, I was glad that my husband also bought me three Kindle books. I am especially glad he bought (free actually) Last Killer Standing. I must say that the plot twist at the end is one the most unusual I have read. I figured out early on who the primary killer was, but the ultimate conclusion was a surprise. Coburn handled that surprise with skill and a little bit of humor thrown in for good measure. Naturally the bad guy was thoroughly unlikable and his character and the rest of the characters were well developed. Apparently Coburn is going to transform the book into an audio book and I look forward to that. I also read on his website, which is listed in the front of the book, that this is only the first of a series and I can’t wait for the second book to appear. I will definitely read that when it does.

Another marketing scheme; the book opens at chapter 10. Instead depending on the reader opening the sample to judge the book this author chose to start you in the middle of the story. I didn't read it so I won't rate it. If I did it would be a 1.0
