“Wicked, wicked Gerrie Ferris Finger. Her latest thriller, The Last Temptation, is filled with deception and lies. She tries to kill off her main characters, but they fight back. The Last Temptation is a worthy follow-up to The End Game. That novel won the St. Martin’s Press/Malice Domestic Best First Traditional Mystery Novel award. It was a fine way to start. But, this one is so much more twisted….The Last Tempation has one of the most unusual cast of potential villains I’ve come across in a long timed.” –Lesa Holstine

“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!” –Patricia Green

“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…The Last Temptation is an edgy mystery thriller loaded with eccentric oddballs. Murder and deceit are no strangers to glamorous Palm Springs. Nor to Atlanta. Highly recommended.” –Jeffrey Marks
