By the time she turn ten, C.J. Osborne decides she no
longer needs a babysitter and following months of begging
her parents give in to her demand. They leave her alone
one evening on their Mohave Desert ranch. This makes C.J.
feel very grown up until she notices a light just outside
the window. An intruder invades her house, but not before
C.J. takes refuge in the crawl space. She manages to keep
the invader at bay until her parents arrive, but they
believe that their daughter's overactive imagination kicked
in big time.
Fifteen yeas later, C.J. works as a police officer for
the LAPD, but she never forgot that night of terror.
Although she fights crime in the city's worse slums, she
remains afraid of that one bogeyman from her youth. Too
bad she fails to realize that her childhood nightmare has
returned to eliminate the one person who escaped his
LAST BREATH is an exciting thriller that will send shivers
up and down the fan's spine because Michael Prescott
enables the reader to walk in the shoes of C.J. Her
valiant efforts to overcome her fears are laudable and add
to the thrills and chills of the plot. Mr. Prescott shows
off his talent as a unique and fresh author with a gift to
keep the audience in a chamber of suspense.
