Captain Patti O'Shay, a by-the-books cop, is assigned to the case. But with the evidence lost to time and the elements, the heinous incident goes unsolved. The perpetrator, known only as "The Handyman," remains at large.

Two years later Patti is still haunted by her own personal tragedy-her husband and fellow police captain was murdered in the post-storm chaos. But when a female victim missing her right hand is unearthed, Patti prepares to return to The Handyman investigation. She is unprepared, however, for what she finds at the crime scene-the victim's bones beside her husband's police badge.

Casting aside all the rules, Patti is fearless in her quest to find the truth...because if she isn't, she could become The Handyman's last known victim.


"LAST KNOWN VICTIMis clear evidence that Spindler is a master at her romantic-thriller art."

Diana Pinckley, The Times Picayune (New Orleans)

InLAST KNOWN VICTIM, Spindler breathes harsh, raw energy into her Crescent City cops, making them damaged survivors of a flooded crime wave that keeps getting deeper. Take a Big Easy tour down Spindler's mean streets. This lady knows her turf ... and her terror."
