The Last Temptation is an edgy mystery thriller loaded with eccentric oddballs. Murder and deceit are no strangers to glamorous Palm Springs -- or to Atlanta...

Eileen and Bradley Whitney, Linley's father, are locked in a custody battle, and Bradley believes Eileen has taken Linley to hide with the Indians in the desert.

Retired cop and owner of an investigative service called Child Trace, Moriah Dru, is an intriguing mix of highly aware, slightly cynical, and romantic at her core. She's in love with her ex-partner, a Lieutenant of Police in Atlanta, Georgia. She traces lost children. He, Lieutenant Richard Lake, traces murderers. When their cases intersect, mayhem sometimes ensues, sparks fly and the bad guys, if they're smart, go somewhere else.

Local brilliant academician, Bradley Whitney, has joint custody of his young daughter, Linley. Her mother, Whitney's ex-wife, is still struggling with addiction, but institutes proceedings for full custody. When the girl fails to turn up on a flight back to Atlanta from Palm Springs, the court hires Dru to find and retrieve her. In Palm Springs, Dru discovers that both the girl and her mother are missing. A lot of people seem to know parts of the story and aren't willing to talk to Dru. By this time there have been several brutal murders in Atlanta that have Lake's attention and Dru's old, Saab has been blown up. Connections? Not immediately apparent.

This is a tautly constructed, tightly written, punchy novel of horrific crime, family entanglements, love and sex, loss and reconnection. The protagonist is a fascinating, flawed, woman with substantial skills and attitudes. The story flows logically from a series of disparate violent events and the presentation of pieces of evidence that eventually all come together. Although the events described are mostly difficult, this is at its center, a life-affirming novel that will leave readers completely satisfied and waiting for the next story from this excellent writer.

About the Author:
Gerrie Ferris Finger won The Malice Domestic/St. Martin's Minotaur Best First Traditional Novel for THE END GAME, published by St. Martin's on April 27, 2010.
Gerrie grew up in Missouri then went South to write for The Atlanta Constitution. She traveled the Tobacco Roads of Georgia and Alabama and the narrow, historic streets of New Orleans. She wrote about Natchez, Mississippi's unique history, Florida's diverse population, and the Outer Banks struggle to keep light houses from toppling into the sea. Visits to Cape Hatteras resulted in her historical paranormal, THE GHOST SHIP.

About the Book:
When recovering addict, Eileen Cameron and her daughter Linley disapper, Moriah Dru of Child Trace is hired by Eileen's ex-husband, Bradley Whitney, to find them. Her search takes her to Palm Springs, California. There she meets a string of eccentric characters/suspects. Among them Dartagnan LeRoi, a local cop, Theodosia, a cross-dressing hairdresser and a donut maker named Zing.

The deeper Moriah gets into the case, the more startling discoveries she makes, including the interesting nightlife of staid seeming Professor Bradley Whitney.

Her search leads her into the high desert where she takes part in a Moon Maiden Ceremony, an event that brings danger into her life and threatens her relationship with once partner, and now lover, Police Lieutenant Richard Lake.

Review:
The Last Temptation is first a satisfying mystery, but it is also an entertaining romp with some fascinating characters, not all of who morph into suspects. It would be hard for me to pick a favorite, although Theodosia would be high on my list. Bradley Whitney is wonderful to dislike. Ms. Ferris Finger brings to life his pompous, smug, character.

The plot's twist and turns kept me flipping the pages. I enjoyed learning of Moriah's and Police Lieutenant Richard Lake's complicated relationship. These two are made for each other, but their former loves get in the way.
The Last Temptation is the first novel I've read by Gerrie Ferris Finger, but I like her style and will be picking up her back list. Give this story a try and I bet you'll be looking for more books from this talented lady also.

Gerrie Ferris Finger describes Atlanta as a big city that can be small when it wants to. Yes, ma'am, that sums up this novel's appeal, which is as gritty and glitzy and oddball as the ATL itself. Dru and Lake do not disappoint -- their relationship, and Dru's sanity, might get roughed up a bit, but these two are tough enough to handle whatever this case throws at them. And it throws hardballs -- a missing mother and daughter, murder, theft, drugs, cross-dressing, gunplay, kidnapping, more gunplay, and heat of all kinds. Hold on tight but don't miss the ride. Highly recommended.

This is the second book in the Moriah Dru and Lt Richard Lake series after her Malice Domestic Best First Traditional Mystery Novel winning The End Game. Dru is assigned a case of a missing child, who appears to be a pawn in a custody dispute. She immediately gets a weird vibe from the girl's father, who is the custodial parent. Her search for the daughter takes her far from her Atlanta home to Palm Springs where Finger paints a wonderful picture of the area and its residents. Dru is injured on the job and must heal while tracing the young girl. Strongly recommended.

The Last Temptation is filled with twists and turns in the plot that keep you guessing. I thoroughly enjoyed it and can hardly wait for the next Moriah Dru book, as long as Lake is in it. Don't write him out, Gerrie!
