I’m beyond thrilled to see THE LAST WORD hit shelves next Tuesday, April 25. I had so much fun writing this crazy, twisty story of a woman living in isolation with her trusty golden retriever, who one day reads a lousy book and rates it one star online… only to face the wrath of its truly unhinged author. The weeks around the launch of a new title are always a little nerve-wracking, but it’s been such a wonderful experience to see the positive early buzz and pre-pub reviews. Thank you, everyone, for your support and readership, and I really hope you enjoy it!
Also (slight spoiler): don’t worry, the dog lives!
“A white-knuckle, read-in-a-sitting thrill ride. In The Last Word, Taylor Adams ratchets up the tension to an unbearable pitch – then keeps going. Thriller fans, take note: you need to read this book!” Riley Sager, New York Times bestselling author of The House Across the Lake
“An outstanding psychological thriller… spectacular plot twists… nail-biting suspense… Adams remains a writer to watch.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Unnerving… knives are out, as well as swords and stun guns, in this breathlessly paced, head-spinning tale” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Adams’ plotting is relentless, making The Last Word one of the scariest mysteries of the year.” Florida Sun-Sentinel
“[An] imaginative and thoroughly original plot… Adams’ modern-day Gothic effectively blends horror and thriller and is guaranteed to keep readers off-balance with its intensity and overall creepiness.” Booklist
