    NOW LIVE!Amazon * Barnes & Noble Mary Burton never fails me and The Last Move gives me yet another example of why I will forever be a fan of hers. She has this ability to sort of make you think you know what's going to happen, yet still keep you in suspense throughout the whole story. I love it and that's the whole reason I fell in love with mystery novels. There wasn't a dull page in this book and I was extremely happy I started this book on my ...

    4 stars! Gostei bastante desse livro e ainda mais dos personagens principais: Agente Kate Hayden e Detetive Leo Mazur! <3 História bem narrada e construída, e mesmo descobrindo antes, algumas revelações me surpreenderam porque eu jamais imaginaria tal coisa... como dizem: nada é o que parece, rs.O desfecho foi um pouco corrido pra mim, mas nem por isso deixou de ser bom.Suspense bem bom, que te deixa ansiosa pra saber o que acontecerá nas p...

    3.5/5I was in the mood for some romantic suspense and The Last Move did the trick. I liked that the romance didn't overtake the suspense. There were some predictable moments, but other than that it was a good read.

    Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) provided by the Author and Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an fair and honest review.Serial killers are just not my thing. I have to be in a really off mood to enjoy those books. Just not there right now. Anyway, I have read and enjoyed other books by Mary Burton, but this one just isn't for me. I found both the hero and heroine to be distant, and the writing was disengaged. Neither the plot or the characters fo...

    Kate Hayden is an FBI profiler specializing in forensic linguistics. She is blunt, direct, speaks her thoughts, struggles with small talk, doesn’t socialize, and doesn’t get close to people. I had a really hard time relating to Kate’s character. Theo Mazur is a detective with the San Antonio police. He is a transplant from Chicago, moving to Texas when his ex-wife does so he can still be actively involved in his teenage daughter’s life. A...

    The Last Move is the latest book from author, Mary Burton. Ms. Burton shows that she is not slowing down anytime soon. The team of FBI agent Kate Hayden and Homicide Detective Theo Mazur is a great pairing. They work well together. Both are detail orientated and professional. There were a few tense moments where both could have lost their cool but they remained focused at the task at hand. Which paid off in the end game. Although, there was some ...

    The webs of mystery were so tangled up and engrossing that for once I didn't mind about the lukewarm romance.

    This story was an exciting romantic suspense title with two intriguing main characters. Kate Hayden is an FBI agent who is a profiler and a specialist in linguistics. When the story begins, she is trying to track down a man who puts young women in boxes and rapes them repeatedly until he gets tired of them. Kate rescues his latest victim Sara and promises to find the man. However, she is called back to San Antonio because there has been a crime c...

    The Last Move is a nail biting suspense where the smartest FBI agent is working to find a serial killer that is from her past. Kate Hayden is a smart, strong female character that works hard for respect but works harder for the victims of the killers she puts behind bars. Mary Burton made Kate likable strong, and willing to face her fears even when it comes from her nightmares. The story is strong with twist and turns readers of mystery and thril...

    I was given a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads. This is yet another thriller from Mary Burton that I couldn’t put down until I finished it. And once again, I couldn’t quite put all the ‘whodunnit’ pieces together until the very tense final scenes. Kate Hayden is wonderful as the FBI agent chasing a killer who is replicating murders she already solved. Her partner, recently transplanted homicide detective Theo Mazur is...

    A thrill to readSo this author knows her psychological thriller and she does it right every time. I love the suspense and thrill of figuring out who is the bad guy. The heroines are always strong, intelligent characters that you will love. Now, the romance is light and kind of awkward but that doesn't detract from the book.

    “When Love is betrayed, there is nothing to contain the demons.”I have read pretty much all of Mary Burtons books so i was really looking forward to reading this one.It is down as a standalone book but I’m sure you will agree after reading it that the potential and the amount of interest already a follow-up book would be highly anticipated.I love the characters in the book, they are well written and very likeable right from the get go.The s...

    I finished reading The Last Move and had to give myself a night to fully absorb this mystery and give it the thoughtful review that it deserves. Mary Burton has done very good job with this mystery/thriller. It revolves around an FBI agent named Kate Hayden and the serial killer that she is trying to catch. Catching killers is not only Kate's job but it has become her entire focus in life. She is led back to San Antonio, Texas by another killer a...

    THE LAST MOVE is a particularly delicious crime drama with so many twists and turns that a seat belt is required. Kate Hayden is so accustomed to putting everything into her work that she comes across as being emotionless which is far from the truth. Theo Mazur wasn't too sure about calling in the FBI until he meets Kate. They have really good chemistry right from the start though it is subdued. I don't want to give anything away about the story ...

    Thank you NetGalley for the ARC of The Last Move by Mary Burton that I read and reviewed.The Last Move was pretty good but it had a lot going on for one book. The main character Kate, was involved with two cases involving killers at the same time so there was two killers running around in this book and for me that was a bit excessive. I feel one storyline would have been fine and made the book a bit stronger.I did like the pairing of Theo and Kat...

    This is the first book I've read by Mary Burton, and I enjoyed it quite a bit. Set in San Antonio, Texas, FBI Agent Kate Hayden and San Antonio Police Detective Theo Mazur work together to find a serial killer with a connection to Kate. I found the characters of Kate and Theo to be well developed and the story to be edge-of-your-seat intriguing. I definitely didn't see the twist at the end coming; I foolishly thought I had it all figured out! The...
