The Eyes Die Last
by Teri Riggs
Rating: 4.1 Stars
The Las Vegas Mayoral race is heating up, and the incumbent doesn’t have a prayer. Wealthy real estate speculator Nick Campenelli, who wants to legalize prostitution in Clark County, and former pastor Louis St. Louis, running on a ‘clean-up-Vegas-by-getting-rid-of-the-whores’ platform, are the front runners.
They’re also front runners on the suspect list for a string of murders. Kennedy O’Brien, four-year detective with cop blood running in her veins, and her partner Wilder “Wild Thing” James, a veteran, are determined to find the man who’s murdering prostitutes who work the wrong side of the street, and they don’t care how important or politically active he is.
The killer is a man with a mission. He stalks the women before he kills them, leaving a “BEFORE” photo on their bodies, and sending an “AFTER” shot to the local news hound. Ed Hershey, an aging newscaster with just the right amount of grey in his hair, is determined to turn this story into a network gig, and his interference, along with the LVTVS legal team, are making Kennedy and Wilder look bad. Campenelli’s good looks and charm, and St. Louis’ vitriolic hatred of prostitutes are muddying the waters too, and now the killer seems to have taken a liking to Kennedy.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
Excellent book. Love it when there are several choices for the villain and its not just someone out of the blue at the end. Also the book didn’t just race in the last few pages to a conclusion. That always leaves me wondering what I missed. Would read this author again in a heartbeat.
This book was a great read. It was fast paced mystery. I enjoyed getting to know all of the characters. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a good read.
Look out Stephanie Plum, there’s a new leading lady on the scene for fans of female-driven mysteries with a healthy dose of sass – all set in a town (Vegas, baby!) ripe for adventure and romance. Great for a summer beach read. Thanks to the author for one of the most enjoyable plane reads I’ve had in a while!
Wow! I think the author shows a lot of promise. Her characters actually felt like real people, even the flamboyant Elvis. Also, she had me going back and forth about who the killer was throughout most of the book. Oh, and I LOVE the title! Great name for a murder mystery!
This book was easy to read and nice to curl up with at night. I really want to see the characters again in a follow up book, or series of books!

About The Author
Teri Riggs was destined to be a writer. As a small girl she didn’t read bedtime stories, she made up her own. Who needed Little Red Riding Hood or The Three Little Pigs when there were so many great tales bouncing around in her head? When she grew up and became a mother to three little girls, she continued the tradition of making up bedtime stories. On the occasions she chose to tell conventional fairytales, Teri usually gave them a bit of tweaking here and there or added a new ending. Her girls loved it.
After her daughters had the nerve to actually grow up and leave home, Teri discovered she had a passion for writing and jumped right in. It came as no surprise she chose to write mysteries and happily-ever-after’s since that’s the genres she loves to read.
Teri lives in Marietta, Georgia with her husband, one of her daughters and two dogs that seem to think they rule the world. And some days Teri thinks maybe they do.
Teri still frequently tells herself stories as she falls asleep. The only difference now is she wakes up the next morning and turns her bedtime stories into books.
Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Teri Riggs and ENT appreciate it.
