The Last Invitation

HarperAudio. Dec. 2022. 9:44 hrs. ISBN 9780063225596. $27.99. THRILLER
Kane’s (Pretty Little Wife) latest, a riveting and claustrophobic thriller, follows a group of powerful women, members of the Sophie Foundation, an ultra-secret organization that harbors dangerous secrets. Well-connected, prominent men are dying. On the surface, there is no connection among them, but once a month, Foundation members meet over wine and cheese to decide which of these awful men will die. Jessa Hall is searching for a way to reclaim her power and self. She jumps at the chance to join, but what she does not know is that there is no way out of this terrifying group. In a desperate attempt to escape, she turns to best friend Gabby to take down the Foundation. Jessa, Gabby, the women of the Foundation, and the men they prey on are expertly narrated by Lindsey Dorcus, Abby Craden, and Alyssa Bresnahan. The full-cast narration, along with the short chapters jumping among characters, adds an element of edgy tension and allows listeners to easily differentiate between characters.
VERDICT Kane’s fans as well as those seeking a thriller filled with empowered women will enjoy. This twisted, gripping listen will have listeners guessing until the end.
