The Last Voice You Hear
Zoe Boehm Thriller 2
By Mick Herron
Oxford private investigator Zoë Boehm struggles with the after-effects of her violent past as she hunts for a killer - or has she become the hunted?
'Unexpected and satisfying . . . The engaging heroine never loses her cool, from the melancholy opening to the whirlwind finale, a marvellously extended set-piece' Kirkus Reviews
Zoë Boehm has harbored a distinct aversion to death ever since she shot the man intent on killing her. So when Caroline Daniels takes a deadly fall in front of a train and her lover fails to turn up at the funeral, Zoë wants nothing to do with the case. But Caroline's boss is persistent, and as Zoë attempts to unlock the secrets of a woman she's never met while in search of a man who could be anywhere, she starts to wonder if he's found her first. And if he has, will that make her the next victim, or prove to be her salvation from a paralyzing fear?
Mick Herron's first three Jackson Lamb novels have between them won the CWA Goldsboro Gold Dagger once and been shortlisted for it once; and been shortlisted twice for the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger. Slow Horses, the first in the series, was picked as one of the best twenty spy thrillers of all time by the Daily Telegraph. Before the Jackson Lamb series, he wrote the Zoë Boehm novels, all four of which are republished by John Murray in 2017.
