Genre: Mystery/Thriller
Eddie Grant, half American and half French, has been trying for years to find and punish the evil mastermind who murdered his wife, his son and his father. He has all but given up when a mysterious murder thrusts the case back into the foreground, and he seizes the opportunity with gusto – but with the certain knowledge that his decision brings great danger to the ones he loves. Like its predecessor, it is a novel of Paris, Eddie’s home.
Kirkus Reviews called Last Stop: Paris “A full-throttle adventure through modern Europe and the Mediterranean … that’s part thriller, part mystery, and all rollicking ride… An exhilarating journey that will satisfy the most avid thriller reader. Pearce again accomplishes every thriller writer’s aim: creating characters that the readers can root for and a believable, fast-paced story
Last Stop: Paris was named finalist in the 2015 Shelf Unbound competition for “Best Independently Published Book.” It is the sequel to Treasure of Saint-Lazare, which Readers’ Favorite chose as the top historical mystery of 2014.

The author, Mr. Pearce wrote a realistic story.  The characters are well developed and each character is important to the plot.  First, we have Eddie, one bad ass individual which you find an attraction to in a small way. He has been trying for years to find who murdered his wife, son and his father.He has just about given up when a vicious murder brings the case to life again.  He becomes gung-ho once again. Then we have Claude Khan which I myself, couldn't stand.  There is Jen, who I was drawn to and was rooting for.  The story puts the reader right there, living perhaps as a friend or neighbor of the characters.  You can almost reach out and touch them.  The story''s pace was fast and yet not so fast that you had to go back and re-read to figure out what was going on. The author gives the reader, a thriller, a mystery,  a story filled with danger and believable characters.  What more could a reader want? I hope Mr. Pearce is working on a third book because I was left wanting more. Grab a copy of LAST STOP: PARIS by John Pearce and follow the characters through the streets and darkness of Paris and Europe.  A journey not to miss.
