Last Call was my first true crime novel from Celadon Books. This novel by Elon Green was published in March and was a heartbreaking account of the victims terrorized by the Last Call Killer in New York.

The Last Call Killer preyed on gay men in New York City in the 1980s and 1990s. I mostly listened to the audiobook for this one, and at times I found it fascinating, like watching a true-crime documentary. At other times it almost felt as if I was listening to a history book being read aloud.

The book was truly chilling, and you could tell that Elon Green meticulously researched everything related to these killings. He did a great job focusing on the victims and their families. I think the disconnect for me was with the narration of this story and that it would have been better had I read the physical or ebook copy. Thank you to Celadon Books and Macmillan Audio for the review copies.
