Her Last Breath by Alison Belsham – Book Review


Her Last Breath reunites readers with Marni Mullins, a grown-up Lisbeth Salander, and her relationship with complicated detective Francis Sullivan, much-loved characters who we’ll be hopefully seeing on TV soon – the TV right have been at auction by MediaLab, who produce dramas for BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Five and Discovery.

The body count is rising…and the clock is ticking.

When a young woman is attacked and left fighting to survive in hospital, the police are pulled into a race against time to save her life. But just 24 hours later, she dies and a deadly tattoo is discovered on her body.

And when another young woman disappears, Detective Francis Sullivan and his team fear a serial killer walks the streets of Brighton.

His team identify a suspect, Alex Mullins, son of Francis’s lover, Marni. Can Francis forget their shared past and save the next victim before it is too late?

A gripping crime thriller from the author of The Tattoo Thief.



Alex and Tash have a row in a club, she leaves and starts to walk home alone…..but someone has followed her.

Early morning, Alex receives a call from Tash, she’s been attacked, so he and his mum, Marni, race to find her.

What they find is horrific, Tash has been stabbed, mutilated and tattooed. She’s rushed to hospital and seems to be ok, but she then dies as a reaction to something. The tattoo ink had been poisoned.

As Marni is a tattooist and Alex knows about the art too, he is suspected of the attack….But, Detective Francis Sullivan isn’t so sure and that’s not just because he’d once been close to Marni.

When another woman is found with the same injuries and dies the same way, the race is on to catch the killer.

This is really an edge of your seat thriller, fast paced, great characters and a gripping plot to keep you on a knife edge throughout. Brilliant.

Thank you to Tracy and Compulsive Readers for the opportunity to participate in this blog tour,  for the promotional materials and a free copy of the ebook. This is my honest, unbiased review.
