    EXCERPT: I smile as I take in the room. There is a bed in the centre. A doorway to a small bathroom to my right. There are curtains at the window, which are closed. And then...I am confused. There is a chain attached to the wall with a cuff on one end. I turn to look at him, my eyes wide. 'What is-'But I do not get to finish. He pushes me roughly forwards. I stumble and stagger until I fall face forward onto the bed. His weight is on top of me, a...

    Their Last Breath by Sibel Hodge is a dark police procedural that keeps you guessing. I am a big fan of this author and jumped at the chance to read her latest book. She is absolutely a go to writer for me. This one was a little slower than usual but I still really enjoyed it. Great characters with a twisty story.There are some familiar characters in this story but it is definitely a stand alone. We see the return of Warren Carter out of retireme...

  • Bridgett
    3.5 stars rounded down. Their Last Breath, by Sibel Hodge, is a very well-written, multifaceted police procedural. Told mostly from Detective Warren Carter's view point, others telling their stories include Hayat, Gillian, and Detective Becky Harris. Apparently, and this is a little annoying to me because I like to read all book series in order, a prior book, Into the Darkness, tells another Warren Carter which is referenced multiple ...
  • The Cats’ Mother
    Their Last Breath is a well written police procedural set in Southern England by a new author to me, but one whose name I was familiar with. It is mainly told from the perspective of detective Warren Carter, but other chapters follow DS Becky Harris - both of the characters have appeared in earlier books but confusingly this was not billed as a series.When the bodies of six women are found in an isolated abandoned hospital, and a force warrant ca...

    4.5⭐ rounded up. Wow. I love finding hidden gems on Kindle Unlimited 😍 This is a really well done crime/suspense book. 3 POVS: A younger female cop investigating a possible serial killer case; an older detective/vigilante working with anti-corruption; a young female refugee/murder victim. The two cops know each other but work in different divisions & have no idea their cases are linked...cue the tension build to knowing implosion. The two ca...

    4 Stars!This thriller/ police procedural easily earned 4 Stars from me. Their Last Breath is one of several books from author Sibel Hodge featuring DS Becky Harris and DS Warren Carter. SUMMARYThis story has a fairly complicated plot with a lot of characters, making it the type book that demands your full attention. I found myself referring back to the x-ray (on my kindle version) multiple times in order to remember the significance of each chara...

    Each time I read a new book by this author I know that I am in for a real rollercoaster of a read. A fire at a disused hospital is being investigated by the police. In burnt out rooms they find young women chained by their ankle and the chained to the wall. When removing the bodies a burnt warrant card is found near one of the women. Retired Detective Warren Carter gets a phone call late at night asking for his help as the police suspect corrupti...

    This is the first time I've read Sibel Hodge's work and I very much look forward to catching up with her other titles. "Their Last Breath" mostly unfolds via three points of view. It's a fast-paced police procedural, with a chillingly plausible plot, which I was unable to put down. I particularly enjoyed Warren Carter's dry humour and I think that Ronnie is a great, quirky character. 
  • Nicole ☠
    WOW! Two intricate stories weaved together to create one seamless story...Sib el Hodge has done it again with another pulse pounding thriller that is utterly un put downable. She proves time and time again that she not only why she is my favorite author but why is also one of the best thriller writers in the game!I was literally so excited when I read the description and saw that my favorite DI ever would be returning for another case. I can't be...

    Sibel Hodge seems to be at war with people trafficking as she has addressed this issue in a number of books. This was no exception - two murder investigations drag detective Carter out of retirement where he was mourning the death of his wife. One case involves the murder of six women who are burnt to death in a house, in the other a couple is tied up and murdered in their home. Are they connected? There is one teeny clue - the corner of a warran...

    Sibel Hodges books have always intrigued me and I approached her latest (thanks to Netgalley) with a lot of expectations and she delivered with a chilling page turner.Detective Carter is called back to duty when an abandoned building goes up in flames. Six women are chained inside and left to die and the truth dies with them.One piece of evidence points to the fact that there may be a mole in the force and Carter finds redemption in the investiga...

    A group of unidentified women dead in a fire, a police warrant card found under a girl with the name Hayat scratched into the floor. A possible serial killer who enjoys typing up couples and cutting them before strangling them. Are these cases related? If so, how? And who in the force does the warrant card belong to?An enjoyable (not sure if that's an entirely appropriate word when referring to the subject matter!) read which kept me guessing at ...
  • Leah Hines
    This is my first read by this author and it won't be my last. A complex plot full of suspense and tension. The cast of characters is compelling. The story is well written and perfectly paced. This book grabs you from the beginning and doesn't let go.

    A fantastic read!When Carter comes out of retirement to work on internal investigations into a corrupt officer he leaps at the chance to leave behind his lonely existence, suffering without his wife and generally listless and uninspired. He is thrown headlong into an investigation of 6 unidentified women burned to death in an apparently disused hospital.Warren Carter is beautifully written, you feel his every emotion along with him as it is so we...
  • Joann
    I love Sybel Hodge's books and this one was a real whopper. I really enjoyed Detective Carter and found out that he has been featured in some of her other novels. Will have to do some research now. There was tons going on in this book with one story-line story - six women are found burnt alive in an old hospital, tied to their beds. In the second story-line, an attack occurs in the middle of the night leaving one witness who didnt really see much...
  • Carol Peace
    What can I say, I was gripped from the very first page right up to the very last word. Detective Carter is enticed out of retirement when 6 young women are found in a burned out building,these women though had been chain in and were malnourished so why were they there in the first place? As a warrant card was found in their last resting place Carter is looking into a corrupt police officer but this are never as simple as they seem and he finds hi...

    Superb. Detective Warren Carter is called out of retirement by Chief Superintendent Barker, Professional Standards Department to help investigate the deaths of six young women in very strange circumstances. There are only two possible clues, the word Hayat written on the floor next to one of the bodies and a badly damaged Police ID card. PSD uncover a deeply disturbing story involving professionals at the highest level. This was my first Sibel Ho...
