Last Word


4.60 (101 ratings)

Someone is sending a message to Congressman Grant Copeland and bodies are turning up with striking similarities. A single shot to the head. A single word written on a piece of fabric left in the victims’ mouths. The BAU team at FBI’s Washington Field Office is asked to consult.

Special Agent Kate Reid works under SSA Jameson now that Nick Scarborough has been transferred to Quantico. With Kate in the process of applying for a transfer to join him, this investigation is crucial as she is assessed by her potential new supervisor, SSA Noah Quinn.

The case, however, is thrown into disarray when Detective Anthony Phelps, an unwitting participant in this joint investigation, attempts to shut out Kate and her team.

Determined to get to the bottom of Phelps’ motivation, Kate begins to lose focus on the victims and instead shifts her resources to discovering what the detective is hiding and why he seems hell-bent on protecting the congressman.

With leads running dry, Agent Jameson issues Kate an ultimatum. Back off the detective and return her attention to finding the killer, or risk denial for the highly-coveted position at Quantico. Will Kate listen to her head or her heart?

Robin Mahle continues the action-packed and thrilling Kate Reid series with this latest installment. Book 7 promises to bring greater challenges for our heroine and a choice that could alter her future once again.

5 Star story with a flaw.

The writing was first class. The story compelling, it was a page turner, for sure.
My one complaint kept nagging me as I read. We have Kate Reid, who has applied for a job as a FBI profiler in Quantico. She is told the job requires her to be in a passive role supporting investigators. What's the one thing any government agency wants? Underlings who follow orders. So what does Kate do while on her trial period? Take over, speak when told not to, start a squabble with other agencies, ignore orders. In the real world, she'd be booted so fast the book would be ten pages. Instead, all her bosses act like sheep. "No, you're wonderful."

Feisty Kate Reid goes after a serial killer and also captures other criminals along the way. This book is built on previous stories. Kate also examines her desire to be a profiler.

Not as good as other Kate Reid Novels

Seems a bit clunky, pacing off compared to other books in the series...but still fairly enjoyable. Kate is one of my favorite characters.


It was amazing how the story went and seeing the progress and the things that went on too solve this case

A really great read

This is one of the best books I have read. Ms. Mahle keeps guessing right up to the end and I appreciated that . Bravo.


This is the first book I’ve read in this series. The author is a powerful writer and gives the reader a very action-oriented plot peopled with strong and memorable characters (one can just picture them in his/her mind). That being said, I really, really did not like Kate Reid. I thought she was pushy to the point of obnoxiousness. Even as she realizes it, she just continues down the same path. Doesn’t she know that you can catch more flies with honey?

Keeps you interested

A good plot with a lot of twists and turns. Excellent character development and without any explicit sexual situations. Does have some cursing. A typical Kate Reid performance.

A roller coaster ride!

An insight into the FBI action taken in finding the bad guys. Planning, profiling and solving cases takes intuition, guts and great agents like Kate Reid.
