“I’m working on the greatest mystery ever,” was the last thing noted mystery novelist Mercedes Livingston said to seven-year-old Chris Matheson before walking out of Hill House Hotel never to be seen again.
For decades, the writer’s fate remained a puzzling mystery until an autographed novel and a letter put a grown-up Chris Matheson on the trail of a cunning killer. With the help of a team of fellow retired law enforcement officers, each a specialist in their own field of investigation, Chris puts a flame to this cold case to uncover what had really happened that night Mercedes Livingston walked out of Hill House Hotel. Watch out! The clues are getting hot!

The Last Thing She Said is the third book in the Chris Matheson series. Out of the four books I’ve read, it is a toss up between this one and the next as my favorite in the series. They are practically neck to neck.
The initial mystery, the disappearance of a popular author, is solved fairly quickly, but with it comes another. With the help of the Geezer squad and a new set of friends, two unsolved mysteries are laid to rest.
The writing is good and pulls you in fast. I felt it had close to the perfect mix of action and story. The pacing was awesome. I didn’t want to put down the book and it kept me engaged. I love seeing the geezers squad doing more and being active members.
This book was also another little mashup. If you’re a fan of the Mac Faraday series, you will hear familiar names and meet old friends. And yes, the dog mayor is still into hijinks of mass porportion.
All in all, this was very close to my favorite in the whole series so far. Again, the toss up between this one and book four. If you’ve liked the other books in the series, or are a Lauren Carr fan, you will no doubt love this book.
