Last Lullaby by Carol Wyer


Charlotte’s baby is safe. But is she?

When the body of mother Charlotte Brannon is discovered by her husband Adam, in their bedroom, Detective Natalie Ward is first on the scene. The killer has left a chilling calling card: The word ‘Why?’ written on the wall in blood.
As Natalie begins to delve deeper into the couple’s lives, she discovers that Adam has a dark past he’s been hiding and she’s sure that the Brannon’s teenage babysitter Inge has secrets of her own.

Then another mother is murdered on her doorstep in front of her young son, the word ‘why’ scrawled on the wall next to her.

All the key suspects have alibis and with her own marriage hanging by a thread, Natalie is struggling to stay focused on cracking her toughest case yet.

When a young woman and her baby disappear, a member of Natalie’s own team is put in terrible danger. Can Natalie stop this twisted serial killer and save one of her own before more families are torn apart forever?

Gripping, fast-paced and nail-bitingly tense, this book will send shivers down your spine. Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott and Karin Slaughter.

My Thoughts

The second book in the Natalie Ward series really starts off with a bang. The imagery in this book is second to none and has such vibrant descriptions that I feel as if I am there with DI Ward.

Natalie is pulled into murder mystery of mothers and with her own personal problems it is hard for her.

A sick and twisted serial killer that Natalie and her team must solve before there are more murders.

This book is packed with emotions and shows another side of Natalie that I didn’t expect to see.

A wonderful second book and am looking forward to the next book in this series.

Natalie is a strong woman which I like but in this book I wasn’t as fond of her as in the first. She shows some weaknesses that made me dislike her just a little. However with that being said it doesn’t diminish what or where this character is going. And where that is to one of my favourite ones written.
