School bells toll a mournful death knell in New York Times
bestselling author Tess Gerritsen’s new edge-of-your-seat thrill ride, Last to Die
. But medical examiner Maura Isles is unaware of the impending danger when she arrives at Evensong, an exclusive boarding school situated deep in the Maine wilderness. Maura is there to visit Julian “Rat” Perkins, the 16-year-old boy with whom she suffered a terrible ordeal, and she’s somewhat startled to learn that, like Julian, all the students there are survivors of violence. That could explain why the main courses of study involve advanced training in science and investigative skills, all geared for careers in crime fighting. Could there be a better place for Detective Jane Rizzoli to hide Teddy Clock? The young boy barely escaped the shockingly brutal slaughter of his foster family, and Jane fears the killers are looking for a chance to take him out as well. What Rizzoli and Isles don’t know is that the key to the murders resides behind the locked gates of the one place that should be a safe haven for all, especially kids. Will the friends awaken to the gathering threat in time…or will one of them
become the last to die?
