American misfit, Raymond Lang, fled to London when the police were on his tail. Despite other people’s perception of him, he never set out to be a serial killer. He dreams of being an author, of writing a thriller full of suspense. He’s tried many times to write about the gruesome murders he visualizes so clearly in his mind but, somehow, when it comes to writing it down, the sharp images fade and it’s as if he’s viewing the scenes through a mist.
All that changes when he realizes what motivates him. His writing inspiration only comes in the precise moment he breathes in his victim’s last exhaling breath. If he wants to continue writing, he must release his darker side and make it happen.
Now, he won’t stop this blood-lust until his novel is completed, but can he finish it before he’s caught?
He’s clever, continually outwitting those chasing him. Even so, he should have known he couldn’t get away with it forever, should have seen his retribution coming, but it still takes him by surprise. Thwarted in his dream, he’s beyond furious. Now, no-one is safe…
If you’d enjoy a fast paced, suspenseful plot involving gruesome murders, blackmail, a car chase, a kidnap, and the sleazy actions of a top politician, then this book is for you. (Adult 18+)

About the Authors
After reading one of Carole’s short stories, Doug was inspired to write the same story from another character’s point of view. Liking each others short stories and feeling they could work together, Carole and Doug wrote ‘Your Last Breath’. The authors feel it is a prime example of writing co-authorship.

Author Raymond Lang is a madman on the loose, from London to Liverpool. Each killing he performs seems even gorier than the one before, building in intensity as the story moves forward. The mind of the killer is revealed throughout, neatly interspersed with the ongoing investigations.
In addition to the depravity of the killer the authors explore the illegal activities of a corrupt government official who uses extremely questionable methods to cover up his own nasty activities.
Basically the story moves around at a good pace, although there were portions involving private detective Alex Renshaw, his former mother-in-law and her mother, family friend Jayne, and Renshaw’s daughter Amelia that carried a little too much description. It did slow down the reading but not enough to set the book aside. As that potion comes to an end there is more than enough excitement to make up for the lag.
My favorite part of the story is the delicious twist at the end. I certainly never saw anything that occurred in the final chapters coming.
There were a few repeated words and typos but they in no way affected my enjoyment of the book. For a reader of gripping serial killer murders and the crafty machinations of the criminal mind this book is a good read. I plan to read more books by these authors.
