Bestselling debut novelist Penelope Berkowitz is desperate for inspiration for a second book. With the help of her new boyfriend, she embarks on a research trip with a Clue-like team of professionals, ex-lovers, and estranged family members to investigate the myth of a witch on Stone Point, a remote coastal outcropping in the Pacific Northwest.

Its author, Canadian writer Amber Cowie, evokes a powerful, vivid sense of place. A diverse group of intriguing characters travel to a remote peninsula extending into the sea off the coast of BC.

Its author, Canadian writer Amber Cowie, evokes a powerful, vivid sense of place. A diverse group of intriguing characters travel to a remote peninsula extending into the sea off the coast of BC. The atmosphere is strong and immersive, with torrential rainfall, chill and mud, forests, dangerous cliffs, and underground tunnels. The location can be reached only by boat. Penelope Berkowitz needs inspiration for a follow-up to her bestselling novel. Her publisher is growing impatient. She is without an idea for a second book and is distraught over the death of her best friend, Marianne, who encouraged and supported her while writing her first novel. Penelope finds a list of 10 contacts Marianne intended to invite on a weekend escape. Penelope learns that the getaway was to be held at a vacant, isolated lodge in an area where a young woman regarded as a witch and killer lived a century before and she is said to haunt the region still. Further history indicated that the young couple who built the retreat hoping to attract guests by its eerie folklore mysteriously disappeared. This history gives Penelope the inspiration needed to research her next novel. Penelope and her new boyfriend, a doctor, travel to the lodge by boat and will join the characters on Marianne's list for a weekend of organized hikes, good food, and relaxation. The group members all have secrets and their own reasons to attend. Not everyone is what they seem to be. Penelope and her boyfriend were inept organizers. Penelope is a flawed protagonist. She hoped to influence cohesiveness in the group under her leadership. From the beginning, she exhibits a whole gamut of emotions, few of them positive. As the story unfolds, there is frequent and growing mention of her trembling, lack of confidence, and feeling sick to her stomach. Her pessimism and suspicions grow as the trip goes very wrong. The book would have worked better for me had there been a stronger protagonist. There were some surprising twists and turns, but a few plot holes and dead ends needed further elaboration. Frightening and eerie events begin to occur. There is a hostile atmosphere. In a macabre series of events, one by one, the guests start to disappear or die. Are the deaths accidental, a coincidence, or the result of murder? Is witchcraft involved, is some unknown person hiding in the woods and targeting them, or is a member of the group a killer? What could be the motivation? With each death, the survivor's only hope is to escape the area. The phones needed to contact a boat for an early rescue are missing, the lodge is wrecked in a violent storm and thrown into darkness. The survivors' predicament becomes very intense and frightening. Will any escape alive? Recommend to those who enjoy scary adventure thrillers of this type, where group members meet disaster. There is much suspicion, and each group member is blamed at various times. Why are they being targeted? Will rescue come before they all die? A story of revenge, folklore, and possible redemption. 3.5 stars

    I really struggled to get into this one and overall found it pretty predictable. As with the previous books I've read by this author, she provides a creepy, foreboding atmosphere here--a group of people travel to an island to research the rumors behind some deaths that had occurred there over the years. Heading the group is novelist Penelope, who is looking for inspiration for her latest book. Bad things begin to occur from almost the first moment there, and people begin to die and disappear.

Heading the group is novelist Penelope, who is looking for inspiration for her latest book. Bad things begin to occur from almost the first moment there, and people begin to die and disappear. Who is behind all of this--is it related to island's history? I called many of the plot elements from the beginning, especially two big "twists" that I found to be pretty obvious right away. This book suffers a bit from way too many characters. There are ten people in this group, and they weren't very distinct in my mind. I was actually kind of glad when a few of them died/disappeared so there were fewer people for me to have to keep track of. Overall, it's quite atmospheric and somewhat of a locked room mystery (is an isolated island mystery a thing? If not, it should be). It's not entirely bad and if you can suspend a bit of disbelief and just go with it without trying too hard to figure things out (because you will) then you might enjoy. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book, all opinions are my own.

    I absolutely LOVE locked-room murder mysteries. However, when anyone tries to reimagine an Agatha Christie novel they are probably setting themselves up for failure. Last One Alive essentially follows Christie's And Then There Were None story structure in many ways. Without giving anything away, I will say that some of the parts were very obvious while others were well hidden. All in all, it was a solid mystery but not memorable. However, I will check out more from this author in the future. I absolutely LOVE locked-room murder mysteries.

    If you’re looking for a classic murder mystery to add to your summer TBR you should try this one. You have a locked room style setting and a side of creepiness making this one quite the page turner. I felt super unsettled the whole time I was reading it, I mean the idea of witchcraft alone scares me and add in an isolated setting and yep, definitely spooky. This was an excellent guessing game with plenty of twists and turns and just overall a solid read from an author I always enjoy.

    A riveting, irresistible locked-room mystery reminiscent of Agatha Christie, Last One Alive is endlessly entertaining and fiendishly clever. Jam-packed with tension and suffused with dread, you won’t be able to put this one down! Amber Cowie is a wonderful talent in the mystery/thriller genre and this haunting, spine-chilling story features lots of action, twist, turns and secrets, and is sure to get your heart racing.

    "WhoDunIt" mystery based on a group of guests invited by a writer to research the musings of the Stone Point witch on an isolated island. And of course in Hitchcock fashion, one of them is a killer. It's basically, an edge of your seat, action-packed joyride.

    This was a super chilling & eerie read. It was a roller coaster ride of a cat & mouse adventure.

    Amber Cowie has the uncanny ability to transport her readers to the eerie wilderness settings of her novels, to keep them racing through her books like a person desperately trying to find their way back to safety—but still, somehow, not wanting the adventure to end. Last One Alive is a fast-paced story of folklore, revenge, and redemption, sure to keep you reading late into the night (with all the lights on).

    I really liked Cowie's first novel so was excited to read her most recent one (and see her at tomorrow's author talk in Whistler). What a sad disappointment this book was. I am confused by anyone who sees a similarity to Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None, except that everyone was dying. In this story, the killer was more than obvious by the halfway point in the story, and any red herrings were nonsensical and unbelievable.

In this story, the killer was more than obvious by the halfway point in the story, and any red herrings were nonsensical and unbelievable. Decisions being made by the group, and by the individuals, were completely illogical and left me gasping in frustration at their stupidity. I felt like I was watching a slasher B-movie where teenagers are getting murdered in a dark basement, yet they keep choosing to go back into that same dark basement to try and find the solution. Hey, just turn on the lights and call the cops! Different venue, but same idea here.

    This was Agatha Christie’s And Then There We’re None “reimagined”. Fine read on its own, but a lesser version of AC’s. It dragged on at times, and then big reveals felt like afterthoughts.

    The premise of Amber Cowie's new book, Last One Alive, hooked me right away. What's it about? From the publisher: "A team of researchers exploring the myth of a witch find their numbers mysteriously dwindling in this irresistible psychological thriller for fans of Ruth Ware, Shari Lapena, and Lucy Foley."

I love 'locked room' mysteries. In this case, it's ten people on the site of an historic crime. And yes, one by one they die. But here's the thing that kept me guessing 'til the final pages. Is it the curse of the witch? Is there really something to the legends? Or is one of the ten turning on their fellow researchers? Penelope is the organizer of the trip. While she has a good reason for the trip and says and does all the right things, I didn't like her. Or any of the ten for that matter. There's something 'off' with each and every one of them. Which only serves to have more suspects! The setting descriptions easily conjured up a detailed picture in my mind. The isolation, the forest, the rocky beach, the old outbuildings and more all add to the unsettled feeling of the endeavor. But what I enjoyed the most was trying to solve the whodunit - keeping track of who was where at a certain time, who was together, what was overheard, what was found. (I always wanted to be Nancy Drew.) I did find some chapters ended quite abruptly and I would have to flip back to make sure I hadn't missed something. Cowie's book is well written, not easy to suss out and kept me interested right through to the final pages.

    Predictable. All the obvious tropes. Had it figured out 50% into the book. And the amount of times something "coincidental" happened, may be higher than the number of chapters in the book.

The setting and the myth around the Stone Witch made this book a unique read for me. These two-story elements really paired well together and helped ramp up the creepy unknown vibe in the story. The small mysterious island on which this book takes place has a hostile and violent past. Those who have tried to live on the island tend to disappear. People believe that the Stone Witch is responsible for these disappearances. Amber does a fantastic job using those paranormal elements in the myth to create those spine-chilling moments that have you pulling your blankets up to your face and wanting to turn all the lights on in your house. The characters in this book are all fascinating, and I really enjoyed that slightly hostile atmosphere that Amber created with this mismatched group of people. I loved that “Clue-like” feel you get from all these characters. You know that they are connected to the late Marianne, but as the story progresses, you begin to learn their past connections are not what they seem. Last One Alive was paced perfectly. Amber does a great job at easing her readers into the story, and then WHAM, things start to get real deadly fast and this little rag-tag team of people start dropping like flies. Last One Alive is a frightening and eerie thriller that is perfect for fans of Agatha Christie. Thank you, Simon and Schuster Canada, for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    I received this book as a Goodreads first-read giveaway. I enjoyed it! It was a little slow to start but tehn I couldn’t put it down. It reminded me of a present day, Canadian version of Agetha Christie’s “And Then There Were None”. If you like dark mysteries, you will enjoy this.
