The entire sieg Another brilliant effort with Mick Herron. This is the second book in Zoe Boehm's series and it picks up nicely from where the previous book, Down Cemetery Road, left off. I like the twisty nature of this book.

About book: Monday morning was blue skies, but Zoë traced a stiff wind in the limbs of next door’s trees, and knew clouds might turn up out of nowhere. Spring days could turn to autumn. The lift your heart got might be the kind that dropped you at the next exit. Sunday, she’d written to Amory Grayling, a report which didn’t mention Victoria Ingalls. It did, though, outline Zoë’s reasons for thinking ‘Alan Talmadge’ an assumed name.

Zoë Boehm doesn’t do death. It’s a rule. Yet here she is—in this new ambitious detective novel from the sure-footed Mick Herron—worried by three of them. Zoë herself has killed a man, and self-defense or not, it cripples her emotions still. She also remembers Wez, a twelve-year-old kid afraid of heights, who tumbled to his death from the top of a tower block; she knew him when he was nine and snatching purses from middle-aged ladies. Then, there’s Caroline Daniels. They’re saying that Caroline’s death was accidental: that she fell off the crowded underground platform and died beneath the wheels of an oncoming train. Nonetheless, Caroline’s employer, Amory Grayling, is disturbed. Caroline, it seems, had recently acquired a lover who remains mysteriously faceless and nameless. So it is that Zoë begins searching for a man whom no one knows by attempting to uncover the secrets locked in the heart of a woman she has never met. Though the questions outnumber Zoë’s answers, she is certain that Caroline did not fall accidentally to death. Nor did Wez, she comes to realize, and soon finds herself dangerously pursuing two murderers, though one of them may find her first.
Reviews: 7
This is the second in Mick Herron's Oxford series. It features Zoe Boehhm the widow of the not very successful private investigator who helps a housewife locate a missing child in the first book. Zoe has a lot on her mind including a possible diagnosis of breast cancer. Starts slow but ends in violence, some of it by an ostrich. First rate and entertaining
This was a tough read. Too much poetic writing losing the basic premises of good story telling. Normally the balance of good writing and a good plot is achieved by Mick Herron - but this time. 3 stars is being generous.
I read this after Down Cemetery Road, which is good, since it's a sequel of sorts. Same muscular writing and serious insight into characters and motivation. The kind of book you don't want to hurry in case you miss something fabulous. I took many weeks to read Cemetery, but read this in just two days. Purely a circumstantial thing, but both experiences worked. These are both books I would consider rereading.

This book is partly about the nature of love and trust, and what happens when you either try to live without these things or give in to the sirens' call. From the clever opening to the not fully resolved ending, this book keeps you guessing about the central character's fate and future emotional state, while also being action-packed. It was very satisfying, and I'm looking forward to reading the next Mick Herron opus!
I came to this novel through Mick Herron's "Slough House" series, which I have found to be first rate in all its parts. "The Last Voice..." is a very different kind of thriller--more psychological, dark and leaning toward traditional crime. What makes it the very good read that it is is the array of in depth characters that populate the story and the emotional depths that the author assigns the principals. There is a very different kind of protagonist in Zoe Boehm, the central figure and a private eye, as well as very different (and credible) antagonists. In the latter category, a new (to me at least) breed of stalker is prominent throughout. The novel is densely written and quite unpredictable and therefore needs some time to read. It's worth the line-by-line approach.
A weak ending and far too many wordy irrelevant adjectives which detracted from the flow and pace of the story.
Very clever twisting plot
herron is my new favorite author how does a man get inside the head of a 44yo woman,,,as he did in the slow horses book when he got inside the victim head and wrote about one's last dying thoughts. he is unbelievable. i will buy every book he has ever written. this story is spellbinding. i usually don't like books about woman detectives,,,but this book is a keeper
surprising and brilliant!
