Mick Herron is a British mystery and thriller novelist, winner of the Crime Writers' Association 2013 Gold Dagger award for Dead Lions. Herron was born in Newcastle upon Tyne, England, and educated at Balliol College, Oxford, where he earned a degree in English. In 2003, he published his first novel, Down Cemetery Road. It was the first volume in a series about Zoë Boehm, an Oxford private detective.

Monday morning was blue skies, but Zoë traced a stiff wind in the limbs of next door’s trees, and knew clouds might turn up out of nowhere. Spring days could turn to autumn. Spring days could turn to autumn ight be the kind that dropped you at the next exit. Sunday, she’d written to Amory Grayling, a report which didn’t mention Victoria Ingalls. It did, though, outline Zoë’s reasons for thinking ‘Alan Talmadge’ an assumed name.

Oxford private investigator Zoë Boehm struggles with the aftereffects of her violent past as she hunts for a killer—or has she become the hunted? Zoë Boehm has harbored a distinct aversion to death ever since she shot the man intent on killing her. So when Caroline Daniels takes a deadly fall in front of a train and her lover fails to turn up at the funeral, Zoë wants nothing to do with the case. But Caroline’s boss is persistent, and as Zoë attempts to unlock the secrets of a woman she’s never met while in search of a man who could be anywhere, she starts to wonder if he’s found her first. And if he has, will that make her the next victim, or prove to be her salvation from a paralyzing fear?
This is the second in Mick Herron's Oxford series. It features Zoe Boehhm the widow of the not very successful private investigator who helps a housewife locate a missing child in the first book. Zoe has a lot on her mind including a possible diagnosis of breast cancer. Starts slow but ends in violence, some of it by an ostrich. First rate and entertaining
This was a tough read. Too much poetic writing losing the basic premises of good story telling. Normally the balance of good writing and a good plot is achieved by Mick Herron - but this time. 3 stars is being generous.
I read this after Down Cemetery Road, which is good, since it's a sequel of sorts. Same muscular writing and serious insight into characters and motivation. The kind of book you don't want to hurry in case you miss something fabulous. I took many weeks to read Cemetery, but read this in just two days. Purely a circumstantial thing, but both experiences worked. These are both books I would consider rereading.

This book is partly about the nature of love and trust, and what happens when you either try to live without these things or give in to the sirens' call. From the clever opening to the not fully resolved ending, this book keeps you guessing about the central character's fate and future emotional state, while also being action-packed. It was very satisfying, and I'm looking forward to reading the next Mick Herron opus!
I came to this novel through Mick Herron's "Slough House" series, which I have found to be first rate in all its parts. "The Last Voice..." is a very different kind of thriller--more psychological, dark and leaning toward traditional crime. What makes it the very good read that it is is the array of in depth characters that populate the story and the emotional depths that the author assigns the principals. There is a very different kind of protagonist in Zoe Boehm, the central figure and a private eye, as well as very different (and credible) antagonists. In the latter category, a new (to me at least) breed of stalker is prominent throughout. The novel is densely written and quite unpredictable and therefore needs some time to read. It's worth the line-by-line approach.
A weak ending and far too many wordy irrelevant adjectives which detracted from the flow and pace of the story.
Very clever twisting plot
herron is my new favorite author how does a man get inside the head of a 44yo woman,,,as he did in the slow horses book when he got inside the victim head and wrote about one's last dying thoughts. he is unbelievable. i will buy every book he has ever written. this story is spellbinding. i usually don't like books about woman detectives,,,but this book is a keeper
surprising and brilliant!
