Last One to Die – Cynthia Murphy

Stars: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Niamh has just moved to London to attend a summer drama school. She has saved up for months, working her hardest to get her place on the course she has dreamed about all year. She loves the sights and sounds of the city which allow her to have more of the freedom she has craved.

But, when on the first night her new friend is killed, her dreams of living in London aren’t what they seemed to be. When more girls begin to be attacked, Niamh’s worry rises…because they all seem to look exactly like her.

With her new friends helping her find the answers, which are shrouded in Victorian and occult myths, Niamh might not just save her friends, but save herself…

Last one to die has everything you need to make a good crime story. Talk of a killer, constant action and a heroine who knows how to fend for herself. Last One To Die is absolutely packed with excitement that will keep you on the edge of your seat! I especially liked the references to Victorian death rituals, and the occult as this is something I’ve always wanted to learn more about. I find it fascinating how they treated death.

Niamh is an interesting character; she is reserved yet still is feisty enough to know her own mind and stick up for herself within the situations that are presented to her. Each time she found herself in trouble I found myself wondering if I’d throw myself head-first into it, as she did, or if I’d react in another way! Her friendship with Jess really showed that opposites attract; they had such different personalities but really worked as a duo.

This was another book I ended up reading late into the night because I just couldn’t put it down. It was really cleverly written, with plot twists timed perfectly to keep you hooked. The shorter chapters really added an intense feeling to the story – this was full of eerie suspense.
