ONE LAST STEP (A Tara Mills Mystery—Book One) is the debut novel in a new FBI mystery series by debut author Sarah Sutton.

Two hikers go missing along the Appalachian Trail, leaving only a bloodstained forest behind them, and when another hiker collapses on someone’s porch in New Hampshire, murdered by crossbow, the local police realize they have a serial killer on their hands––and need to call in the FBI.

FBI Agent Tara Mills is young, brilliant and new to the force. With a promising career in front of her, she faces the ultimate test when she is assigned the case. It soon proves to be more challenging than she ever could have imagined––an impossible riddle that leaves even her seasoned partner stumped.

Meanwhile, something about the case stirs a darkness within her––a tortured past that even her long-term boyfriend doesn’t fully understand. As nightmares consume her, she only hopes that her past will not come back to ruin her once again.

As more hikers go missing, and with her job on the line, Tara finds herself on a race against time as she combs through the forest’s trails. Peeling back each layer, she soon realizes that she is up against a true diabolical mastermind. And just when she thinks she has it all figured out, her instincts lead her to the most shocking truth of all.

Book #2 in the series––ONE LAST BREATH––is also now available!


  • Disappointing Read

    By Shop&Sell
    I couldn’t make myself like the main character.
  • Great Mystery/Thriller especially for a slow reader

    By pbspslax6
    I have always loved mysteries/crime books, but am such a slow reader. I’ve had 2 paperback mystery books that were recommended to me that I’ve been trying to read for 2 years and never finished. I got this app for a beach vacation and got this book and read it in 3 days. I could not stop reading it. It was very thrilling and suspenseful. An easy read. A lot of books I’ve read tend to put too much detail into the small irrelevant things and this book was not like that. Told you everything you needed to know about the characters and got right to the point. Always kept you guessing. Amazing!

    By Baaaaats!!!
    This novel is a great example of story telling. I really like the depth of the character Tara. Her deep seated frailty and the strength of her will and determination.
